More About From the Vault- The art of Jerry Garcia

C. PARKER GALLERY PRESENTS “FROM THE VAULT: THE ART OF JERRY GARCIA AND THE GRATEFUL DEAD” FOR A LIMITED SHOWING APRIL 19th - 29th

“From the Vault ” is a specially curated, limited showing of some of the most compelling and rare artwork and
photographs from the iconic band, the Grateful Dead. This unique event includes original and hand-signed artwork from founder Jerry Garcia and band members Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, as well as personal items from Jerry Garcia, including his briefcase, black t-shirt and leather chair where he sat while creating many of his artworks. “From the Vault: The Art of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead” opens to the public on Thursday, April 19t h and runs through Sunday, April 29t h . All items are available for purchase.

As a young man, Grateful Dead founder Jerry Garcia’s artistic interests were divided between visual and musical expression while a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. Music came to claim his full attention, but he never stopped sketching. Garcia once remarked about his art, “ I hope that nobody takes them too seriously. ” Garcia signed his print artworks as they sold, therefore many of his limited-edition works were never signed prior to his passing in 1995. This showing will offer many rare and collectible hand-signed Garcia pieces.

Also included in this exhibit are photographs from Rolling Stone magazine ’ s First Chief Photographer Baron Wolman. Wolman took the iconic 1969 photograph of Jerry Garcia displaying his missing finger, which became a symbol for Grateful Dead fans. Wolman also was at their house at Haight Ashbury in 1967 where they congregated on the front steps after being bailed out of jail. The band posed for the photo, holding firearms and flipping the bird, for the first issue of a yet to be published new magazine called Rolling Stone.

“From the Vault: The Art of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead” provides a rare opportunity for music fans and “Deadheads” alike to enjoy this special showing and a chance to own something truly unique and personal from this cultural icon.
