The Rock Poster Society is delighted to announce a terrific new poster by Gregg Gordon to promote our upcoming Rock Art By the Bay show on August 6 at the Mission Masonic Center in San Francisco. Gregg will have copies of this poster available at his booth, while TRPS volunteers will be offering a free t-shirt featuring a variation on Gregg’s design to anyone who stops by the TRPS table and renews their TRPS membership or becomes a new member. As for the roster of artists, the list is coming together very nicely—visit the show’s Facebook event page for all the latest updates and details. See you at the show!
Mark your calendars for Saturday August 6, when Rock Art By the Bay returns to the Mission Masonic Center in San Francisco. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to see the inside of a working Masonic Lodge, as well as to meet the artists who will be joining us. Stay tuned for a list of attendees and more details next week.

Man oh man, I wish I had time to head to Chicago later this month. I would definitely get in line for rock-poster artist Jim Pollock’s Thirty Year Retrospective at Galerie F on June 24 and 25. Pollock’s linocuts have always been favorites for their crude beauty, simple colors, and occasional imperfections. His work is like Neil Young’s music when Young deliberately plays just a bit out of tune—no doubt there’s plenty of expertise at Pollock’s fingertips, but in the end it’s the passion that matters. This has been particularly true of his long run of gig posters for Phish, which are littered with toothy horses, ambulatory fish, crowing roosters, and other barnyard animals, who often appear to have been roused from some sort of farmland fever dream. Congrats, Jim!
It looks like a good time has been had by all at Bottlerock this year, especially if you visited the Haight Street Art Center’s remote printing studio. On Friday, those at the music festival to hear Stevie Wonder could leave with a print by Chris Shaw. On Saturday, fans of Florence + the Machine could pick up a print by Courtney Callahan. And today, those in Napa for Red Hot Chili Peppers could get both a show poster by Gary Houston, plus his screen print. Thanks to the Haight Street Art Center for making it all possible!
