Newcomer Curt Holzer’s NYE print this year builds off his futuristic animated style from Miami 2009. This print measures 38″x13″ and is in an edition of 100 signed and numbered prints. Each print costs $30 with $5 shipping while each additional poster costs $10 extra.
The piece is a digital illustration of NYC as seen through Curt’s eyes with yet another “Big Ass Fish” for a focal point. Subway cars, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, MSG, Times Square, Chrysler Building, and The Statue of Liberty can all be found within the borders. A few song references can be found on kiosks, in space, and there is a familiar red haired man on the jumbotron in Times Square. All art comes from Curt’s sketchbook renderings of ideas he had after his first visit to NYC a little over two months ago. The finishing digital touches and the hours he has put into this project have been countless, and for Curt, the reward is priceless, and he hopes the Phans simply enjoy!

Vermont artist Jennifer Kahn has been making jewelry for over a decade. Her designs fuse old and new, industrial and natural, urban and ethnic. She graduated from UVM with a BA in Art and English in 2001. Since then, she has been apprenticed to renowned jewelry artist Celie Fago, from whom she’s learned PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and metalsmithing. Jen has sold her work at craft shows, in galleries and has been featured in exhibits across the US, UK, and Japan. Her work has been in top jewelry magazines and several books; she most recently wrote a chapter for the popular book called “Stitched Jewels“; her earrings are the cover design.
Ever since Jen attended her first Phish show, she has been taken by the community, the art and most of all, the music. As a maker of little things, she loves the merit badge concept and it inspired her to create a token. Since she works in metal and is excited for the New Years Run in NYC, a token, reminiscent of subway tokens, was an appealing idea. It’s made of pure silver and is the size of a quarter. Each one is hand made by Jen.
It comes in an archival coin display holder for $25, or as a pendant on black waxed cotton cord (16″ or 18″) with sterling ends and a sterling lobster clasp for $35. Or on a sterling chain for $45. In addition to the commemorative fish and apple, and “NYE, NYC, MSG”, all three show dates are inscribed among the lines on the edge. A limited edition of only 100 tokens will be made to order. This is definitely a collector’s item!
Jen is donating a portion of every sale to the Mockingbird Foundation because as important as art is to her, she couldn’t live without the music and she wants that to be true for future generations.
You can see more of Jen’s work on her website: www.jenniferkahnjewelry.com and purchase from her Etsy shop: www.jenkahn.etsy.com. You can also find her selling in Burlington, VT at various Holiday craft shows and on display at Trinket (28 Church St.) anytime.
