Original Negative Approach drummer Chris Moore started creating flyers for the pioneering punk rock band when he was just a teenager, marking the beginning of his career as an experimental visual artist as well as a songwriter. For his latest exhibition, Moore “re-writes” lyrics from the past 25 years of his songwriting over his paintings. The exhibition has an opening reception on Friday, and it's a night of both Moore's visual art and music: Moore is set to do a 10-minute composition utilizing four drummers at 7:15 p.m. at the Loving Touch next door.

Opening reception from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1 at Lawrence Street Gallery, 22620 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-544-0394; lawrencestreetgallery.com. Show runs through Nov. 29.
