Telluride Blues & Brews is excited to welcome back Keith 'Scramble' Campbell to the Festival! Scramble will be painting to the tunes all weekend at the festival. Keep an eye out for him and be sure to come by to say hello, admire his art, or even buy a "live" painting!
Take a trip back in time and experience the cultural heritage of Red Rocks through art, photographs and memorabilia. Scramble Campbell has dedicated 18 years of his life documenting the Denver area’s most iconic cultural and natural landmark.
Scramble is best known for his colorful portrayals of musicians and bands. He has created more than 400 original works of art live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. His vast portfolio includes more than 2,600 pieces from nearly 1,000 musical events across the country over 25 years.
In 1991 Keith ‘Scramble’ Campbell became the pioneer of the Live Music Painting Movement. His art and passion has inspired hundreds of other artists worldwide. His mission is taking the art to the people and giving people an opportunity to see the process of art from start to finish, inspired by the concert they are listening to and grooving to themselves.
Meet the artist in person daily. Scramble will be available for tours & discussions. Be sure to catch Scramble Campbell in action, painting LIVE at Red Rocks during the concerts throughout his exhibit June 22 - July 22.
The 14th Annual Scramble Campbell Red Rocks Art Experience is located in the Red Rocks Amphitheatre Visitor Center. This exhibit is open from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., re-opening during concerts until the end of the show. You must have a concert ticket to attend the exhibit during concert hours.
Join us for an evening celebrating art and music with the gallery opening of "Live Music Painter" featuring the colorful paintings of Keith "Scramble" Campbell, Colorado's premier Live Music Painter. The event marks Boulder County's first gallery exhibition of the art of Scramble Campbell who’s canvases have celebrated art & music for over 25 years.
At the Arts Hub in Lafayette, Campbell is featuring signature pieces that the musicians have enjoyed and autographed.
In his work, Scramble Campbell becomes part of the music and focuses that experience into a live painting explosion of paint and canvas. "what I'm trying to do with these particular paintings is evoke the motion of what that music feels like to you. And that's what these paintings will show. A lot of emotion with these different acts. I'll have B.B. King inside there. I'll have Buddy Guy. I'll have Simon and Garfunkel to Pete Seeger will all be in this exhibit," said Campbell.
Enjoy the musical stylings of The New Family Dog Duo, with Jon Ridell, a featured artist in the Documentary Scramble Vision, an award winning documentary film by Eric Abramson that focused on Campbell's live music painting experiences along with artists interviews about how his art becomes part of the experience. Scramble Vision will be screened during the opening.
A Campbell painting created during the gallery opening will also be on display.
All of the artworks are for sale with a portion of the proceed going towards youth arts classes and programing. The event is free and open to the public. Light hors d'oeuvres & refreshments will be served.
