Special thanks goes to the following artists who were featured on PhanArt in the past two months. They have been undoubtedly generous and their donations will in turn support the efforts of Mockingbird Foundation to promote music education throughout the country.
Isadora Bullock – Three 2009 posters (Red Rocks, Jones Beach, Philly) and three 2010 posters (Telluride, Deer Creek, Charleston)
The Pronghorn Antelope print is the final of three native Colorado animal prints in a triptych set. The first print is the Saw Whet Owl and the second is the Cutthroat Trout. Each print is the same size (20″x20″) and can be displayed individually or as a triptych set. A limited amount of matching number sets of all three prints in the triptych are available now at IansPrints.com/available-art.php for $125 shipped. If you purchase a set of prints Ian can offer to make them a custom color scheme that you choose.
The Pronghorn Antelope print was created using 7 hand cut stencils and spraypaint. Prints come signed, numbered, embossed and with a hand made Certificate of Authenticity. The Pronghorn Antelope print will be available for $50 shipped on Monday January 7th at 10am Mountain Time USA at IansPrints.com
Ian K. Millard is an artist from Denver, Colorado (USA) specializing in original stencil and spraypaint art. My prints and originals are created using multiple intricate hand cut stencils and spraypaint layered on top of each other to create an image. All of Ian’s prints are hand sprayed and I strive to make all my print editions unique. Never one the same. Prints come signed, numbered, embossed with the IansPrints.com seal and come with a hand made Certificate of Authenticity (COA).You can watch a little video Fuel TV / Mtn Dew Green Label put together on Ian’s art by clicking here
The show will hang all of August at Vintage Berkeley, a really sweet gallery/wine shop, just under one mile from The Greek Theater, in the “Gourmet Grotto“, Berkeley’s restaurant district. The opening reception will be Friday afternoon, August 7th, from 12-2pm, and the vino will be flowin’.
Ryan Kerrigan says of Greek Art at Vintage Berkeley: “I’ve shown my work there three times in the past six years, usually solo (although Kerrigan has done an art show with his sister Kelly Anona Kerrigan at Vintage), this will be first time with a group. We have eleven artists for this one this show will focus solely on art related to the August Greek Phish run, and each artist will be showing only their piece related to this run.”
If you are going to the Greek, get yourself to Vintage Berkeley on August 7th from 12-2pm. A short walk for some great art and wine in an area known for its food, you can’t ask for a better pre-show activity!

The next Mock Show Phish Poster convention will be held on Wednesday, December 30th from 10am-3pm in beautiful downtown Miami, not far from the venue. Located on the 14th floor of the EPIC HOTEL (270 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami), fans will be able to see dozens of artists throughout the expansive and aptly named EPIC HOTEL. Artists will be spread throughout the Metropolis Ballrooms, Gotham A & B Ballrooms, Baxter Room & Entire Foyer.
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 MUSTSEE and MUSTATTEND 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 FrankyScaglione 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 JasonKaczorowski will be showcasing his concert/festival and celebrityportrait 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.
