10.19.2015 - Read Matthew Kassel of the New York Observer complete interview with John where his first art show in the city opens this week at the ACA Galleries after the jump. Here are some excerpts: " “I know me,” he clarified. “I’m old enough to know that I don’t need instruction or any of that kind of stuff. I know what I want to do and I do it...” "“They’re the same as my songs,” Mr. Mellencamp said of his art, which gives off a dark aura, at least at first glance. “American folk songs were about tragedy, right? They were about suffering and tragedy, and a lot of my songs are about that, even though they were misunderstood...” Read More

10.16.2015 - ...That Mellencamp puts brush to canvas may come as a surprise for many, but given the artist’s proclivity to imbue his music with intimate stories and potent imagery (think “Pink Houses,” one of the most famous examples), perhaps it shouldn’t. Often figurative, and evoking hints of Neo- and German Expressionism, Mellencamp’s paintings tread new ground, while remaining thematically in line with the small–town, earnest portraits he crafts in verse. Read Issac Kaplan's of Artsy Magazine exclusive interview with John about his forthcoming exhibition at the ACA Galleries in New York, titled “The Isolation of Mister,” opening to the public on October 22, 2015, his beginnings in art and music, and the milestones that led him to stardom after the jump.

10.01.2015 - We are pleased to announce the first one man show at the prestigious ACA Galleries in New York City, John Mellencamp: The Isolation of Mister exhibition runs from October 22nd through to December 19, 2015. The list of giants of American art whose careers were established or advanced by ACA Galleries would cover several pages. They are artists who have had something to say; a social conscience to express; a radical concept of art to advocate. Mellencamp found his visual voice in Expressionism. The German Expressionism of the early twentieth century, with its anguish over human brutality and corruption, spoke to Mellencamp’s deep feelings about social justice. Mellencamp’s imagery thus takes its inspiration from the same sources as his music: the struggles of the working man and woman, oppressive authority and social struggle. Read more about the 80 years of Advocacy for American Art on the ACA Gallery Website and read the complete press release after the jump. Please note: There is no entry fee for the exhibition

02.23.2015 - When you hear the unfiltered roughness in John Mellencamp's voice during “The Isolation,” you're quickly aware that this popular roots rock singer from Indiana wasn't kidding when he titled his new album, Plain Spoken. With its added wheezy harmonica solo, Mellencamp gives this song a truly Dylan-esque sincerity. It comes off a lot like recent Dylan music, where the man has become quite the self-reflective one. Read Dan MacIntosh's complete review of Plain Spoken after the jump. Read More
