Not So White Rabbit Painting by Grace Slick
Gallery 319 is hosting a show of artwork by former Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship singer Grace Slick. Gallery 319 recently moved and joined forces with Art One Gallery at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. The Grace Slick Exhibit will take place at Art One Gallery on August 25th, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m. RSVP is required. Grace Slick will be in attendance. And, if you purchase a piece of her artwork prior to the show, you will be invited to a private party and your artwork can be dedicated by her.
Grace Slick began painting in 1989 after her last performance with Jefferson Airplane as part of a reunion tour. In the late 1950s, after she left Finch College in New York, Grace briefly studied art at the University of Miami. Much of her artwork seems to make reference to her time as a singer and songwriter. As with her song “White Rabbit”, Alice in Wonderland references are dominant in her artwork. Images of Alice and the White Rabbit appear often in her paintings. Her paintings also include other musical and rock icons such as Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, Pete Townshend, Jim Morrison, and Sting.
Art One Gallery is located at 1331 3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica, California.
