''One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer — Guitar Art, No Strings Attached''
Artist/designer Pen Morrison brings her ''One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer — Guitar Art, No Strings Attached'' series of sculptures to Cactus Music for a six-week-long exhibit. ''The guitars are very much my homage to the old-school blues guys,'' Morrison told our reporter William Michael Smith after an encounter at last year's iFest. ''There's a dignity in what they did. They never really got their proper due, and they would've done it whether they got paid or not. It was who they were, and that's something I want to show respect for.'' Morrison makes each guitar shape out of steel, but adds bits of wood, paper and other found materials to the sculptures. The series includes odes to Johnny Cash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Albert Collins, T-Bone Walker and George Harrison.
