Bernie Taupin art exhibit will be on display at Bill Lowe Gallery

Bernie Taupin is a legend in music, having written nearly every Elton John hit.

But he’s also a visual artist with a knack for creating multi-media assemblages using imagery, found objects and text.

His exhibit, “Bernie Taupin: True American,” will be on display at Bill Lowe Gallery in Buckhead Oct. 25 through Nov. 22. And yes, it is timed to coincide with John’s final Atlanta concerts at State Farm Arena on Nov. 1-2.

Bernie Taupin, Elton John's longtime right-hand man, uses imagery, found objects and text in his art.

The British-born Taupin utilizes stenciling letterforms, spray paint, target shapes, flag images and textured surfaces in his pieces, which he marries with personal philosophies and themes. 

An opening reception will take place from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 25 at the gallery (764 Miami Circle, Atlanta); valet parking will be provided.
