We just got back from one of the most rewarding and memoriable
experiences of our lives. The Sons of Nero debut art opening was a HUGE
success and turned into 2 of the biggest nights for the company's career.
The fine folks at Juxtapoz Magazine posted a photo feature from our show from last weekend. Be sure to check out all of us partying and
getting crazy. Many drinks consumed and people met. It was a GREAT night and
we can't thank everyone that came out enough for a truly amazing experience.

Prince St. Lancaster, PA 17603) between now and the 30th to check out the show if you're in the area.

We are proud to announce that we’ll be showcasing some of our work in our first gallery show November 7th at Metropolis Gallery in beautiful Lancaster, PA. The fine people at Metropolis have been so warm and excited about us coming down. We couldn’t be more excited about this and have been working extremely hard on getting everything printed and framed for the big open. This is a first for us so we’re going all out. On display will be some giclee prints of our favorite album covers along with some screen printed posters, original illustrations and a few collage pieces. We will be printing EXTEMELY limited runs of this art that might soon end up in our PURCHASE section.
Though we’ll be opening first Friday in November, we’re planning a great party for that Saturday (the 8th). We would love anyone in the area to come out and hang with all of us. Don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you need more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Big thanks to Angelo, Lisa, Jeff B., Jeff R., Debra, Chuck and Anne for really helping us put this amazing event together. We’re so grateful and excited – you have no idea.
