RUSH Honored By Salem Artist

According to, John Kane, a Salem, Massachusetts-based multimedia artist who said Canadian rock trio RUSH influences his artwork, has made the band the subject of his latest show — "Workin' Them Angels: Rush through the Camera Eye". The show will consist of photographs from the three Greater Boston area shows on the 2007/08 "Snakes & Arrows" tour. It opens at Front Street Coffeehouse in Salem on Saturday.

"I always feel inspired at a RUSH show," said Kane, a drummer. "I feel inspired to create. I feel anxious when I listen to RUSH. It inspires my artwork; it inspires my life — lyrically and musically."

Kane's photographed the band from front-row seats at the Comcast Center in Mansfield and the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H. The framed photos consist of black-and-white and color shots of the band, during performance and in between songs.

"I wanted to show what it was like to be at a RUSH show," he said. "I was attempting to show RUSH on stage from a fan's perspective — showing the whole stage experience, capturing moments of each member in downtime, (during) solitary moments."
