The night before the Festival of Rock Posters kicked off in the Hall of Flowers at Golden Gate Park, there was a pre-show party at Hangar 18 in Oakland, CA. Hangar 18 (H18) is a showcase for artwork in the unique setting of Chuck Sperry’s screen printing studio in Oakland, California. The H18 Project is an ongoing pop up gallery where collectors are presented with a unique studio experience. The exhibit Hometown Disadvantage featured art by Chuck Sperry and Chris Shaw. TRPS member Ron Schaeffer was at the event and took some pictures to share. Cheers!
The Rock Poster Society arranged a guided tour of The Fillmore for Expresso Beans members who were visiting San Francisco for TRPS Festival of Rock Posters the following day. Tour guides included Fillmore Art Director Arlene Owseichik and TRPS board member (also former Bill Graham employee) Ron Schaeffer. Expresso Beans members were treated to the inner workings of this fabled rock and roll shrine, and hear all about the lore from its long poster legacy.
TRPS really appreciates how kind the Fillmore folks were with giving us this chance. Enjoy these pictures taken by Ron Schaeffer.
