Last Saturday, the Lisa Derrick Gallery opened, “Fast and Bulbous: The Art of the Mascara Snake.” Mascara Snake, AKA the late Victor Hayden, played bass clarinet on the album Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band, and also did the art work for the album Bluejeans and Moonbeams.

The show was curated by pop surrealist Anthony Ausgang, and will feature Hayden’s recent drawings and paintings, plus memorabilia from the recording sessions for Trout Mask Replica. His art is Daliesque cum Picasso al’a speed freak sensibility. Each piece is 200 smackers. Cheap to own a musical legends artwork. Each picture is worth a million joyous sounds. Zero Gallery’s John Pochna made a rare appearance at the opening. Many a career was launched at the Hollywood location of Zero Gallery next door to the CASH Club during the 80s.

“Celebrating the Mascara Snake: Memories of Victor” will take place June 1, 2019 at the Lisa Derrick Gallery from 1:30 PM until 3:30 PM.
