Hank Williams receives the stigmata (in Nora Othic’s drawing)

A wounded Johnny Cash stoically puffs his chest outside of a prison. Hank Williams‘ upturned palms are pierced and bloody. A woman in a long, black veil crouches over a grave.

These are all powerful images by artist Nora Othic, who has drawn enough pictures for two different music-themed art shows. The first exhibition, Rock & Roller, opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Thornhill Gallery, 11901 Wornall.

The show features Othic’s interpretation of song lyrics.
