Four of John's paintings are included in New York City's ACA Galleries newest exhibit: Social Art In America: Then and Now.

"It is sometimes said that those who are creative in one field are also creative in another, and such is the case with John Mellencamp. Known primarily for his award-winning music, whose themes of working- class struggles and rural hardship are right in line with Social Realist art, Mellencamp is also a serious painter tackling serious themes. Uniting the Modernist and Realist traditions, Mellencamp’s canvases bristle with the anger and rage just under the shiny American veneer. "

The exhibit runs May 6 through June 27, 2014.

01/29/2014 - Legendary folk singer Pete Seeger passed away Monday, January 27, 2014. John had developed a friendship with Pete and was a vocal supporter and fan of his work. Pete was 94.

When word of Pete Seeger's death reached John, he issued a statement where he commented, "Pete Seeger always tried to make the world a better place through his music and activism. His lifelong commitment to the cause of peace and to addressing the plight of the downtrodden has been an inspiration to all those who have championed society's victims and have done what they could to combat injustice. His music and commitment was more powerful than a thousand armies. We are fortunate that he lit the way for so long."

Later, he told the New York Times, " Probably my most inspirational moment with Pete was playing at his 90th birthday concert, at Madison Square Garden. I asked him, ‘What do you think of this?’ He said, ‘It’s awfully nice. But you know, if you want to make a difference, you’ve got to keep things small. Keep it small, John. These big things are fine occasionally, but they make a big noise and then people forget them.’ And I think he was right. Farm Aid is an example: it’s small, but we keep plugging away.”

At the 90th birthday celebration for Pete, John covered Pete's "If I Had A Hammer" and performed his own Seeger inspired "A Ride Back Home." John and Pete teamed up again at the 2013 Farm Aid Concert in Saratoga Springs NY. Pete joined John, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Dave Matthews to sing "This Land Is Your Land" and "If I Had A Hammer." After the jump you can watch all of those performances. Read More
12/30/2013 - Mellencamp’s Masterpieces - Champion of the heartland, Farm Aid founder, and accomplished Americana musician, John Mellencamp has been covertly pulling double-duty as a visual artist for more than 20 years. But with his first art museum exhibition at Youngstown, Ohio’s Butler Institute of American Art in progress, the spotlight is now shining brightly on 40 of his original oil paintings. Inspired largely by German artists Max Beckmann and Otto Dix, Mellencamp’s work is emotional and progressive, in keeping with his award-winning music. For Mellencamp, who began his painting career by training with the Art Students League in New York in the late 1980s, inspiration is ubiquitous, and his pieces range from the brazenly political to the intimately personal.
