Gig posters are inspiration on a dirty wall, temporary beauty in the rough and tumble world of rock and roll. Gig posters are created on crazy deadlines, the jobs don’t pay too well, and bands are added at the last minute, wreaking havoc on design. This show is a chance for real gig poster artists---fresh from the music mines---to have a bit of fun. Whether it’s band names thought up at 4 AM over fries ‘n gravy at the Blackfoot Truck Stop or a dream bill at a nightmare venue, these gigfauxsters are a peek at an alternate reality that might scare you…or make you laugh.
Artists: Tom Bagley, Sam Bagley, Ian Doig, Eric Dyck, Craig Evans, Rod Filbrandt, Aubrey Hallis, Tim Huesken, Mark Igglesden, Dave Reilander, Mark Reusch, Nicole Steen, Kipling West
Billy Shire Fine Arts Gallery in collaboration with DVA Gallery is having a Group Show which I’ll also be attending in Chicago.
What makes this trip all the more fabulous is that I’ll finally get to meet my new nephew Jack! If it weren’t for him I’d probably would have skipped going altogether given my current situation which includes a hell of a lot of painting, but there’s no way I could pass up on meeting him!
This is the piece that I’ve put in for the show.
