.Joseph Demaree Brings Art, Music to South First Fridays

Joseph Demaree, a San Jose native who balances his time between painting, music and live performances as his alter ego Captain Nowhere, returns for South First Friday for his first major showing in San Jose in the last few years.
The artist reception Friday at Metro Newspaper’s lobby will also feature an acoustic performance from Demaree. He is know for his surrealist work as a painter; even though he’s evolved as an artist, his most memorable pieces include Dali-esque imagery.
Demaree brings his musical experience into his paintings, which often showcase his favorite tools—pedals, amps, guitars and analog recording equipment. The Metro gallery show will be unique in the fact that the artist will showcase all aspects of his endeavors, and the audience will be able to connect the dots between the paintings and the music.
His musical endeavors range from the avant-garde compositions of The Unit Breed to the neo-folk he croons today. He even had a children’s band, The Abominable Snowmen that charmed kids with songs like “Eat your veggies” and “Pie in the face.”
