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 ShawTRPS 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.

TRPS Festival of Rock Posters 2013, poster by Frank Alan Bella

Our big event of the year, the TRPS Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters, is set to go on Sat­ur­day Octo­ber 19th. We’ll be back at the Hall of Flow­ers in Golden Gate Park in San Fran­cisco for the biggest poster event of its kind any­where, and this is shap­ing up to be another great show with a stel­lar lineup of poster artists and dealers.

For a long time we’ve dis­cussed the idea of revamp­ing our show admis­sion pro­to­cols to reward cur­rent TRPS mem­bers and encour­age more peo­ple to join. This year we’re mak­ing it hap­pen, and here’s how it’s going to work.

10:00 – 11:00  Admis­sion is $20 for non-TRPS mem­bers. Admis­sion for mem­bers is $5 as usual, and your mem­ber­ship needs to be cur­rent. Please bring your card to show at the door. If your mem­ber­ship is expired or you’re a non­mem­ber, you pay the full admis­sion price at the door and we refund you the $15 dif­fer­ence by renew­ing or join­ing at the TRPS table. We encour­age you to make sure your mem­ber­ship is cur­rent before the show to avoid the has­sle. It’s eas­ier than ever to join or renew on our web­site www.trps.org. We’ve even got two new TRPS t-shirt designs to offer for the first time (by Alex Fis­cher and Art Chantry), and you can pick one as a mem­ber­ship premium.

11:00 – 3:00 Admis­sion is $10 for non-TRPS mem­bers, and $5 for mem­bers. Just like always.

3:00 — 6:00  Admis­sion is FREE to all. If being part of the early rush isn’t impor­tant to you, heck just come later when things have set­tled down a bit and get in for noth­ing. Hey, can’t beat that. Bring your friends and family!

The Hall of Flow­ers (Old County Fair Build­ing) is just inside Golden Gate Park at the cor­ner of Ninth and Lin­coln in SF. Show hours are 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Mark down Sat­ur­day Octo­ber 19th, 2013 on your cal­en­dar. For any poster col­lec­tor or fan, this is the one show you don’t want to miss.
