Gallery: Inaugural Phish Studies ConferencE and Phish in the PNW Exhibit

Below The Moss Forgotten: Phish in the Pacific Northwest was a three-day pop-up museum exhibit presented by The Phishsonian Institute and PhanArt in the Horizon Lounge at Memorial Union. Held during the inaugural Phish Studies Conference, the exhibit represented shows from the band’s PNW debut in Ashland in 1991 to the band’s recent run at the Gorge in 2018.

Presented by Alex Grosby of the Phishsonian and Pete Mason of PhanArt, immense thanks is owed to the Oregon State School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, OSU Theatre, and the Benton County Historical Society for their strong support and all of the conference attendees for their kind words and enthusiasm for this inaugural project.

Private collectors and numerous artists contributed works to this vision to bring it to life. The exhibit made the Memorial Union a welcoming environment for scholarship and added a level of experience to the event. We hope to continue to present Phish exhibits in the near future. You can revisit the exhibit by viewing the slideshow below.

Retro Lot Poster Series From Star City Art Workshop

Star City Art Workshop is a partnership that was founded in the spring of 2017 as a bit of a courting gesture between two artists. Describing what each brings would take too long so let’s just say there is one hell of a synergy when you cross an artist with an outlaw, a nurturer with an activist, a dreamer with a lover. These prints are born out of a basement in Star City, West Virginia.

This entire series featured below is available on eBay.

This print was inspired by ACDC Bag and other visual imagery that feels Phishy  Its creators enjoy expanding the visual language associated with the band, and sometimes reach out there to push that. This one has direct lyrical references as well. The feel is edgy, and the time within which this was created was pretty darn edgy, and still is socially and politically. Feel the parallels between the narratives in the early Phish lyrics and the story we are all living in history together. There are references here of great tension and decisiveness, consequence, reality of mythic proportions. And that is where this print operates from. Colors: burnt sienna red and green/yellow smearprint and green.

Many of these prints have a story to tell. The imagery is venue-inspired with the Georgia Peach.

“Amy’s Farm 1991″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Yellow and brown on madero beach speckletone. Run of 25.

Amy’s Farm was the first in a series of nine throwback prints for early shows, now referred to as the “Phish 1.0” era.

“Sugarbush 1995″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Red, green, yellow and peacock on madero beach speckletone. Run of 12.
“UNH, Durham, NH 1994″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Blue on madero beach speckletone. Run of 11.

This print features UNH school colors and reference to the theatrics of trampoline jumping on stage. Phish are a beautiful embodiment of theatrical-artist-type musicians and youthfulness. So playful in spirit even when paired with all the intellectual brilliance. There is a reference also to holes here. And just a letting go.

“The Colonial, Keene, NH 1992″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Flamingo pink and forest green on madero beach speckletone. Run of 12.
“Cumberland County Civic Center, December 1995″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Peacock and silver on madero beach speckletone. Run of 7.
“Portsmouth Music Hall, 1992″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Pink and burnt sienna on madero beach speckletone. Run of 11.
“Cayuga County Fairgrounds, 1993″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Golden-yellow and black on madero beach speckletone. Run of 10.
“The Ballpark, OOB, 1994″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Salmon and charcoal black on madero beach speckletone. Run of 7.
“Stowe, July 1993″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Forest green on madero beach speckletone. Run of 10.
