It's not surprising that Scott Avett would use painting (with a spot of levitation) to announce the Avett Brothers' latest piece of news -- check that here, although you should be warned that it has some potentially NSFW material.
Avett got an art degree at East Carolina University and he still paints, including this self-portrait at left and the group's album covers. And he has four paintings on display in Raleigh this month at Lee Hansley's galleries at 225 and 126 S. Glenwood Ave. They're part of a show called "The Paul Hartley Legacy," featuring works by Avett and 99 other former students of the late ECU School of Art and Design painter (who died on Thanksgiving day). The display runs through Feb. 27.
