The Art of Jerry Garcia
    #1507988 - 04/30/03 04:28 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

So I saw in the newspaper that Jerry Garcia's art was on display at some hotel and I checked it out the other day. I got there and somehow the guy at the front desk knew I was there to see the display and not to get a room, so he pointed me in the right direction. Maybe the tie-dyed shirt gave it away? Anyways I think his artwork is just as beautiful as the music he played. Has anybody else seen a lot of his art work? They were prints but they were so beautiful. I didn't realize he was so skilled in that medium. If I had $600-$1500 to spare I would have bought a signed and numbered print. They were playing Dead there too, which of course made the experience even better.

Yeah and he didn't stick to one style or medium. He made landscapes, portraits, little sketches, completely abstract works, etc. He used water colors, crayons, charcoal, you name it. Talk about a multifunctional artist!

I was in Barnes & Nobles today and as I was walking by a table I saw a new Jerry art book. It's called Amazing Grace. Its got a CD in it that is a never before heard version of Jerry singing Amazing Grace. Its got about 12 paintings of his in it to go with the song. It's a small book about the size of the one he put out Harrington St. His wife put out both books after his death.

I just had to buy it. When I got home I popped in the CD and thumbed through the book. His voice sent a shiver down my spine and brought me to tears.

I love him dearly. What I wouldn't give for just one more night in his presence.

If you get a chance check this book out. :smile:

not to mention that Jerry played every musical instrument except the drums, an accomplished banjo player, steel guitar, bass, piano....and so on.

Sorry to go off topic KC !

If you guys want to see some of the coolest jerry art there is a studio in milford PA. The chich that owns the place has all the plates they use for the prints. She deals with all art made by musicians. Millford is a real cool arty kind of town. Right across the river from Trenton NJ
