Music legend Graham Nash, founding member of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, is also a photographer and painter. The next exhibition of Graham Nash’s photographs and artwork will be at the San Francisco Art Exchange. According to the gallery:
His photography spans decades and inhabits many creative worlds, extending well beyond Rock & Roll, and his visual aesthetic is lush and multidimensional. His artwork incorporates numerous techniques and styles, many of them a natural evolution from his experimentation with photography. Two of his most recent paintings will debut at this exhibition.
There will be an exhibit opening event with Graham Nash in attendance on Saturday August 24, 2013. The exhibition continues through October 5, 2013. Contact the gallery for more information.
In 1990, along with his partner Mac Holbert, Graham Nash founded Nash Editions, a company which does fine art digital imaging and printmaking. Nash Editions is recognized as the world’s first professional fine-art digital printmaking studio. In 2005 Nash Editions was recognized by the Smithsonian Institution for its role in the invention of digital fine art printing. Graham Nash has released several publications of photography, including, Eye To Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash and Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash.

Later this year, Graham Nash will publish his autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life. According to the publisher:
Nash has valuable insights into a world and time many think they know from the outside but few have experienced at its epicenter, and equally wonderful anecdotes about the people around him: the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Dylan, and other rock luminaries. From London to Laurel Canyon and beyond, Wild Tales is a revealing look back at an extraordinary life—with all the highs and the lows; the love, the sex, and the jealousy; the politics; the drugs; the insanity—and the sanity—of a magical era of music.
On September 16, 2013 Graham Nash will discuss “Wild Tales”, with author Bob Spitz at the Library of Congress.
