DUNMORE — Mark Loughney’s paintings feature some of the most prolific figures in the history of jam music.

Artists like Trey Anastasio and Bob Weir are depicted in Loughney’s work, which is based on the photography of Grateful Dead “official” photographer Jay Blakesberg. The exhibition, entitled “JAMFAN,” displays 20 of Loughney’s paintings and drawings from Oct. 1 through Nov. 1 at The Wonderstone Gallery, 100 North Blakely St., Dunmore.

An opening reception takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 1.

A news release from The Wonderstone Gallery said the exhibition will be of particular interest to fans of the Grateful Dead and the music festival scene.

Blakesberg, the release said, is aware of the show and gave his “kind blessings” to the art depicted in it.
