42 Degrees and PhanArt Poster show was a great success!

Thank you to all who came to the 42 Degrees and PhanArt present The Art of the Fans of Phish poster show on June 20th before the Sunday SPAC show. It was a great success with nearly 200 attendees, 20 artists, dozens of pieces of art available and some of the best glass in the Northeast. On behalf of everyone at 42 Degrees – Jon, Robin and Mike, and PhanArt Pete, we thank everyone for attending!

As long as Phish keeps playing SPAC, we hope to continue to make this a tradition for years to come!

Franky Scaglione Miami Poster

Just breaking on to the poster art scene this year, Denver artist Franky Scaglione, rediscovers the fusion of his longtime connection to the Phish community and his passion for creating art. Scaglione has contributed shirt designs and stickers to the lot scene for years, but has recently found his niche in fine art screenprints.

Franky Scaglione's Magic City Binge

Scaglione completed his BFA in Media Arts at State University of New York (Fredonia) in 2002, and escaped the bitter cold of western NY for the mountains and sunshine of Colorful Colorado. Shortly after the move, he found himself teaching art in an inner-city middle school; it was the perfect gig, allowing him to feel out the teaching world while keeping the summers off for Phish tour. Within three years, Scaglione earned his MA at the University of Denver and began teaching high school art. This is what he loves and is still doing today.

Teaching drawing, painting, and printmaking allows Scaglione to constantly research and experiment with new media and approaches. Six years into his teaching career, he finds himself more inspired than ever before.

Look for his new release, Magic City Binge, to accompany Phish’s four-night run in Miami. Stop by his booth at Mock Show: EPIC NYE to say hello and check out his work.

Magic City Binge is a limited edition screen print run of 175 on 100lb French Pop-Tone, black licorice (18″ x 24″). Please contact Franky at paisleyblue@gmail.com if you are interested in pre-ordering a print. The price is $37 including shipping/handling and reinforced poster tube to anywhere in the US/Canada. Additionally, prints will be available for $25 at my booth at the Mock Show.


Attention Phish fans, poster collectors, artists, brahs and brahettes!

Artist Line-Up

Charitable Organizations:






The 5th Phish poster convention and 2nd Mock Show will be held December 30th from 10am-3pm at EPIC HOTEL in Miami, Florida. As with other conventions, dozens of artists and exhibitors will be on hand displaying some unique prints both old and new, as well as donate to great fan-based charities.

Having attended the first two conventions as a fan and taken part in the last two as a charitable organization (as PhanArt nets profits for Mockingbird Foundation through sales of PhanArt and other lot art), I have to say these are MUST SEE and MUST ATTEND events for even the casual observer of lot art.  Some AMAZING art is found here. The Poster show in Miami on 12/30/03 was the show that got me hooked on the lot art, and it’s been a great ride ever since.  In fact, it’s fair to say that these poster-conventions were the early catalyst for PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish!

Of the artists listed above, there are several official Phish artists including Jim Pollock, David Welker, Jeff Wood, Justin Helton and Sei Rey Ho of Us & Them Studio.  This is Ho’s and Wood’s first Mock Shows, joining a crop of artists who have taken part in many, if not all poster shows dating back to 1/3/03 in Hampton, VA.

PhanArtists such as Ryan Kerrigan, Tripp, AJ Masthay, Isadora Bullock, Fred Hosman of HoscoPress, Bruce Horan, Erin Cadigan, Uncle & Aunt Ebeneezer, Noah Phence, Ryan Jerzy, Jamie Huntsman, Vince Naro, and Franky Scaglione will have their art on display, as will Michael Ortiz & Jon Lamb of LikeMindedProductions, Ian Millard and Drew Findley of Subject Matter Studios. Mock Show creator and PhanArtist Jason Kaczorowski will be showcasing his concert/festival and celebrity portrait photography in a special exhibition.

Included amongst the artists are non-profit organizations Waterwheel Foundation, Mockingbird Foundation, PhanArt (thats us!) and the main beneficiary from the event, Headcount. Headcount will be sponsoring an exciting opportunity for patrons to engage themselves in the democratic process of voting by helping stage a juried art event wherein patrons will receive ballots upon entry (and previously online) to “vote” for the their artists spanning various categories including “Best of Show”, “Best New Artist”, “Best Mock Show Poster” among others.

These votes will be tallied and awards will be presented during a catered VIP banquet ceremony Thursday, December 31st, 2009 from Noon-4pm. The awards ceremony will feature an additional surprise roster of artists exhibiting in a currently undisclosed location. Check back November 30th when tickets go on sale to learn how you can be one of only 100 special VIP guests to attend this inaugural awards ceremony dubbed “The Posties” where the coveted “Golden Tubes” will be distributed to artists voted best in their field. You’ll have a unique opportunity to talk candidly with artists, browse an exclusive collection of fine art on display, attend the afternoon’s inaugural “Posties” ceremony all while enjoying a premium open bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres.
