In a time of great need, NC Printing has launched a campaign “We Are All Essential.” The Hendersonville, NC company has designed, printed and began distribution of t-shirts and stickers featuring the slogan. The company says they are trying to send out a positive message to the community and for that reason there will be no company branding on these free products.
Co-owner of NC Printing Neil Roberts said in a statement “It’s not about us. We are in trying times and we want to send a positive message to our friends, neighbors and community as a whole. The slogan says it all. In lieu of payment for the shirt or sticker youreceive, we simply ask that you, in turn, be a good human…help someone who needs help, lift someone’s spirits who is struggling, do a good deed for a stranger, give someone a spare roll of toilet paper for Pete’s sake! And if you feel like this is a good thing, spread the joy on social media and remind others that we are truly all in this together. Let’s remember who we are and that we all really are essential.”
NC Printing plans to give out several hundred of the t-shirts and stickers and wants to keep giving them away for as long as they are able.
With the music industry (among others) shut down around the country, musicians, venue staff, promoters and more are out of work for the time being. Among those without an outlet for their creativity are the music photographers who capture those moments during a show that capture the energy and vibe of a live music performance.
In conjunction with New York State Music, PhanArt is highlighting a half dozen photographers whose work you can purchase, with a percent of select sales going to supportvarious charities. More photographers will be featured in coming weeks, giving fans a chance to purchase and support these individuals with a wide range of bands and genres to select from.
A photographer with NYS Music since 2018, Zach hails from New Jersey and makes it his goal to capture and portray the energy and essence of high-profile bands and artists in performance.
Zach’s photo of Billy Strings is available in four different ready to hang metal print sizes. This is a limited run of 50 prints with 25 percent of sales donated to Music Cares. Visit Zach’s website or Darkroom to order and see more images. Instagram @zinimages

Dave’s MSG poster measures 11″x14″ and costs $30 in an edition of 1 Billion (collectors may choose their print number). Russo says of the print:
“To commemorate the roaring 20’s, I’m calling attention to our return to the gilded age where unchecked financial habits put us, once again, on a path of uncertainty. This is contextualized in the concert scene at a time when ticket sales are at their most gentrified ever. The baker boomers dream of scoring a NYE ticket as though it were Willy Wonka’s winning wrapper. Those lucky enough to attend must first bow to the scalping tycoons. Venue capacity is the new gold standard.
The edition number of 1,000,000,000 is a playful nod, forcing observation of the abstract absurdity of a number that is often discussed in news, but seldom witnessed in practicality.”

Greg Laplaca has been seeing Phish since 1991 and making pottery since 1993. All of his mugs are handmade on a potters wheel and finished by him. The labor intensive method to add logos is a signature aspect of his work, which he describes here:
Once the mug is thrown on the potters wheel and set up for a day I add the handle and roll out a slab of clay. I then stamp that with the logos, cut them out, and attach them to the mugs. Once they are dried and fired the first time at 1945 degrees. I stain all the logos with black glaze. I then wipe it off to antique the design. The logo is then painted with bees wax so the glaze is resisted when I dip the mug in the final color. The mug if then dipped in the final glaze color, and logo wiped clean so the natural clay is exposed wit the logo stained. The mugs then go back in the kiln and are fired to 2235 degrees. Once cooled down they are ready to be sold.
All mugs are finished with food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe glazes. No two are exactly alike because each one is individually made.
Mugs are on special for $35 each, 2 for $60 or 4 for $100.
Stay tuned for more art as the show date approaches!
