STEFFICH FINE ART PRESENTS…

“When Art Rocked”

On Saturday July 4th, Steffich Fine Art will celebrate the psychedelic poster art from the legendary Fillmore West, Avalon Ballroom and Winterland in San Francisco. The collection of original posters and tickets on display covers the period from 1966 to 1971 when the convergence of music, art and the counterculture changed the face of poster art forever. Around 20 different artists created over 500 posters for iconic 1960’s rock bands.

Salt Spring’s own Randy Bachman and Bill Henderson both played the Fillmore West as the Guess Who and The Collectors respectively. The gallery has hired a band for the event, consisting of Brent Shindell and Matt Steffich on guitars, Dave Roland on bass and Lorne Burns on drums. In attendance will be fabled Salt Spring artist Bob Masse, whose own storied poster art career began in the Vancouver scene in 1966 and continues to this day. Owner Matt Steffich says of the event “its meant to be a celebration of art and music, and we are hoping anyone who grew up during this time, or was influenced by the music, will come by and enjoy the art, the music and friends. This was an amazing period of time when art truly did rock”.

Saturday, July 4th. Doors at 7:00 p.m. with live music starting at 8:00 p.m at Steffich Fine Art ,

Grace Point Square. For more info call 1-877-537-8448
