KISS’ PAUL STANLEY ROCKS OUT AN EXHIBIT OF HIS PAINTINGS
BY: Karon Warren
Fans of the band Kiss know Paul Stanley as the flashy frontman wailing on his guitar and belting out hits such as “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock and Roll All Nite.” This month, Stanley is showcasing his talents on a different kind of stage—the walls of the Wentworth Gallery in Buckhead. An avid painter for many years, Stanley was the man behind the design of the iconic Kiss logo, along with some of the artwork that appeared on the group’s album covers. Viewers will find his portraits and abstracts, which will be on display through June 18, as lively and colorful as his stage persona, and will get a chance to meet Stanley in person when he makes an in-store appearance at the Phipps Plaza gallery on June 16.
Exhibit on view through June 18, personal appearance June 16, 5-8 p.m.
3500 Peachtree Road N.E.
