If you're an art lover looking for something a little offbeat, there's a gallery in Manhattan that keeps things hardcore.

Some works by members of legendary New York punk band Murphy's Law are on display at a new exhibit at the Art on A Gallery in the East Village.

Located at the epicenter of the music scene that saw punk bands rise, the gallery is showcasing sculptures by the band's banjo player Dr. Zian Saxon, paintings and drawings by their saxophonist Raven and drawings by their tour manager Kelly Forsyth.

They say the exhibit, called "Anything That Can Go Wrong...May Just Go Right," is a great way to keep in touch with a world that has radically changed since Murphy's Law first started hitting the stage.

"I spent a great deal of my youth running around in this neighborhood, and I think it affects you whether you like it or not and it comes out in your work whether you really mean to for it to or not. The piece down kind of laments the loss of a pizza place that was next to Niagara down on the corner for years that went away at some point from gentrification, for good or for ill. But neighborhoods change in New York," Forsyth said.

The exhibit begins Thursday and runs until April 10th.
