Saturday October 8th in San Francisco

 Festival of Rock Posters poster by Carolyn Ferris

Our annual Fall Classic, the TRPS Festival of Rock Posters is set to go for Saturday October 8th, 2011 at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park in the beautiful city of San Francisco.

Featuring rock poster artists and dealers from around the country, this is the biggest rock poster event of its kind anywhere! Those of you who have attended this show in the past know that this is the one not to miss. We bring in the best of the best, and you’ll find everything from vintage psychedelic treasures to the best of the modern silkscreen movement. This year’s version promises to offer another stellar lineup!

The Hall of Flowers (Old County Fair Building) is at the corner of Ninth and Lincoln on the South edge of the Park, not far from the Haight, the DeYoung Museum, and the Academy of Sciences. There are plenty of great restaurants close by, too. Heck, make it a weekend and bring the family to enjoy the great weather, an awesome poster event, and everything else San Francisco has to offer!

The TRPS Festival of Rock Posters runs from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Admission is $10 for the public, and $5 for TRPS members with card. Yes, you can join up (or renew) there and take advantage of the member discount.

An auburn-haired songstress holds a fawn. Shocking magenta hair falls to the shoulders of a blue nude strapped with artillery. A 1950s-model cop car rests peacefully at the bottom of the sea, washed in blues and purples revealing a silent white angel. Each outstanding print on display represents a prominent rock band. Each was created by Chuck Sperry.

In early 2011, Chuck Sperry, San Francisco artist and co-owner of Firehouse Kustom Rockart Company, made an unprecedented donation to the Library’s Art, Music and Recreation Department of over one hundred limited edition, hand-printed rock art posters. Officially entitled, The Chuck Sperry Archive, this collection comprehensively documents the Goldenvoice Music Series (at the Regency and Warfield Theaters) from 2008 to present, as well as selected Firehouse productivity related to the cultural-life of San Francisco.

This collection is exciting in both use of color and variety of content. Each silkscreen print is comprised of up to sixteen colors, applied as individual layers. The pieces reference styles ranging from Japanese nishiki-e, Austrian Expressionism, 1960s psychedelia, to the provocative punk poster tradition of Sperry’s youth.  Musicians such as Neko Case, Danzig, Bad Religion, Nick Cave, Soundgarden and The Black Keys are represented, as are a talented group of Bay Area graphic artists (Ron Donovan, Alex Fischer, Gregg Gordon, John HowardDave Hunter, Alan Hynes, Scott Johnson, Dennis Loren, Chris Shaw, Frank Zio, & Zoltron) who contributed to the Firehouse Goldenvoice Poster series under the art direction of Chuck Sperry.

The Rock Poster Society will be presenting a very special version of our Rock Art By the Bay artists’ show at the Harmony Festival at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA on June 10th, 11th, & 12th, 2011.

The Harmony Festival has over the years become a premier music, arts, and cultural festival in Northern California. This year’s version features a stellar lineup of bands including The Flaming Lips, Primus, and Michael Franti & Spearhead, among dozens of others. The festival also features an array of speakers, unique arts, cultural events and exhibits, and of course vendors and food galore.

We’re stoked to have made a special arrangement to present our poster artists event as part of a very special “Arts Pavilion” at the Harmony Festival. We’ll be sharing Harmony Hall with Tribe 13, a nationally known collective of visionary artists. Anyone who’s a fan of rock posters and art will be treated with a special treat for the senses.

Yes, you do need to get tickets to attend the Harmony Festival. Ticket prices will go up at the door the day of event. Tickets can be purchased now at Whole Foods, a complete list of participating stores is available here.
