If you’ve been around Nashville’s music clubs much over the past decade, chances are you’d recognize Dean Tomasek as the curly-locked bass player holding down the bottom end with Bobby Bare Jr., Will Hoge and a number of other bands. But what you may not know is that all the while he was designing and painting anything he could, to help make ends meet — album covers, stage sets, posters, airbrushed jackets, faux finishes. Tomasek has been ratcheting up the visual side of his artistic inclinations in recent years, and his portraits of iconic musicians, available in giclée prints — featuring everyone from Michael Jackson and Johnny Cash to Dimebag Darrell and Lillian Gish — have been a hit at First Saturday Art Crawls. Some of his best work is featured in his series on Outlaw country artists, including Johnny, George, Gram, Kris, Waylon, Merle, Billy Joe and Hanks I and II. The two most striking images are profiles: a defiant-looking Townes Van Zandt and a crow-like Bobby Bare, the father of Tomasek's erstwhile bandmate. And speaking of crows, the foreboding bird figures prominently in a series of eerie nature prints, some of which cry out to be album covers. Tomasek shows his work during every First Saturday Art Crawl at his Arcade gallery Suite 69, or by appointment.
