On Saturday March 31, 2018, fans of 1960s rock art will have a rare opportunity to meet Gene Anthony and see some of his latest “Summer of Love” work at the E-Clectique Gallery in Oakland, California. Included in the show are photo-paintings of all the big “J”s, from Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin to Jim Morrison and Jerry Garcia. Everyone was in San Francisco for the Summer of Love, even George Harrison, whose endless smile was captured by Anthony’s camera.
Anthony will only attend the show’s opening, which begins on March 31 at 3 p.m. and runs until around 9. The gallery is located at 4125 Piedmont Ave., #13; enter through The Courtyard on Piedmont, climb the stairs, and it’s on your right. For more information, call 510-325-2520 or visit the gallery’s Facebook page.
