Romantic Rock’s highly anticipated Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Holiday Art Show returns for its sixth year, with its grand opening night and red carpet artist reception taking place on Saturday, December 11 at The Lazarus Experience in downtown Los Angeles. Punk Rock & Paintbrushes has become a household name, known for bridging the gap between music and art with their extravagant art shows with the release of their one-of-a-kind coffee table art book: The Insides Of Artists Written By Outsiders, which features art and stories from both world renowned talents in the music, art, and skateboarding communities.

This annual art exhibition celebrates the fine art and photography of creatives who share a passion for both music and art. The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Holiday Art Show is an all-ages, family-friendly event that will feature artwork from musicians Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals, Jim Lindberg of Pennywise, Jason Cruz of Strung Out, Matt Hensley of Flogging Molly, Eric Melvin of NOFX, Mike Gallo of Agnostic Front, and Monkey Adicts of The Adicts; professional skateboarders Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi; tattoo artists Tokyo Hiro and Jason Adams; photographers Blair Alley and Brent Broza, and visual artists Soma Snakeoil, Sarah Melvin, Natalia Fabia, Chris Shary, Lori Herbst, Stacie Stevenson, The Mad Twins: Olya & Vira Ishchuk, Shawn Foley, Paul Kobriger, Brian Bent, Dan Smith, and Mark DeSalvo. Each artist will have multiple original pieces, prints, and much more.

The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Holiday Art Show grand opening night reception will be open to the public from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm on Saturday, December 11 and will feature signings from featured artists, music throughout the night from special guest DJs including Josh Freese of Sting, The Vandals, and Devo, Mama Troy, and Noodles of The Offspring, as well as live original and holiday music and from members of The Bombpops, The Aquadolls, and Sitting On Stacy. The reception will also boast a full cocktail bar, a coffee booth, a red carpet, live body painting, and more.

Emily T. Nielsen, founder of both Romantic Rock and Punk Rock & Paintbrushes says, “The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes community is looking forward to hosting our 6th annual holiday show this December. Coming back after two years, we are excited to host our highly anticipated holiday show and are more than ready to bring beautiful art to our community and to be benefiting amazing non-profits such as Rock To Recovery and The Alexandria House with the help of TUK Shoes. This year we were so grateful to publish our coffee table book and bring our story inside your homes... we hope that this holiday season we can share our stories even more in person on December 11 in LA."

The public can RSVP to this event at: http://punkrockholiday21.eventbrite.com/

Some of this year’s participating Punk Rock & Paintbrushes artists and performers said the following:

Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals: “In the Punk Rock & Paintbrushes world, to me, it's kind of like everyday is Christmas. It was especially feeling like Christmas this year because we put out a book with 29 wonderful artists sharing their stories and that was like 29 Christmas presents. As far as I know, there's nothing like this event and I'm very proud to be involved with it.”

Soma Snakeoil: “Celebrating art, friendship and resilience, despite all we’ve been through and doing it together as a community, is pure joy. I am so grateful to Punk Rock & Paintbrushes and Emily for providing that space for us. I hope to see the top part of all your faces there.”

Jen Pop of The Bombpops: “I'm not quite sure how an art show can feel like a concert but Punk Rock & Paintbrushes somehow exudes the same electric spirit as a full blown festival. I’m thrilled to be playing some tunes this year because I’d be attending anyway!”

Admission to Saturday’s opening night reception is free for those who own the Punk Rock & Paintbrushes coffee table art book: The Insides Of Artists Written By Outsiders or $20 for a general ticket. There is also a VIP admission option which allows for early entry into the friends and family hour at 5:00 pm, and much more.

Punk Rock & Paintbrushes not only uses their community to lift the voices of artists, but to also help those in need. This year, Punk Rock & Paintbrushes has partnered with TUK Shoes and a plethora of musicians to drive awareness and funds to The Alexandria House and Rock To Recovery. One-of-a-kind designs will be painted onto TUK Shoes by members of Slipknot, Taking Back Sunday, Fishbone, NOFX, and more. Each pair of shoes will be auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting The Alexandria House, who provide safe and supportive housing for women and children who are in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Additionally, notable rock n’ roll musicians and artists will be painting a number of guitars that will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting Rock To Recovery, an innovative, therapeutic music program serving more than one hundred addiction treatment and mental health facilities in the USA.

The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes art exhibition will also be open to the public for free on Sunday, December 12 with gallery hours from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Sunday will feature local artists and artisans, and live music by Bent Duo, Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals, and Jason Cruz of Strung Out, as well as a DJ set by Stacey Dee of Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and more surprise guests.

The Lazarus Experience is located in the Fashion District of downtown Los Angeles, less than a mile from the Staples Center at 224 E. 11th St., Suite 501, Los Angeles, CA 90015.

Sponsors for the Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Holiday Art Show include: TUK Shoes, Topo Chico, KROQ, Jagermeister, The Alexandria House, and Rock To Recovery.

Punk Rock & Paintbrushes will also host a holiday show on Thursday, December 18 in Oakland, CA at Go Records with select artists. Stay tuned for details and RSVP information.
