While the weekend we all had planned with Phish in Watkins Glen was a wash, it would have been a real tragedy if the art from our scene never saw the light of day. Thankfully many artists, including Jamie Lee Meyer, have released their Curveball work for fans to see and acquire. If you are a collector of phanart, you know Jamie’s work well. Her stunning Baker’s Dozen print was so perfect it sold out at the NYC Phanart Shows last summer and her effort this season is no less spectacular. Once again Jamie nails it! Her execution presages what certainly would have been a weekend among the heavenly spheres. A Limited Edition of 200 signed prints of Jamie’s Curveball poster have been released for sale with proceeds going to Watkins Glen Flood relief funds. The Ball may not have happened, but you can still grab a piece of the art and help the community. Only $22 – Order yours here!

Seth Olney who operates the The Olney Place in the middle of the east side of Keuka lake is offering up his space on the Thursday night before the festival begins on June 30th at 6:30pm for a pre SuperBall IX CrazyRedBeard art show. While this is not an official poster show, it will feature lots of prints, paintings, pins, shirts and you’ll get first shot before lot at any SuperBall IX merch available. There will be live music and live painting as well.
CrazyRedBeard is looking to make this a truly unique experience that people will remember, as well as a nice pre-jam before the jelly, if you will. He is also looking to incorporate a few local glass blowers as well.
From Seth, a preview of The Olney Place and Keuka Lake…
“Keuka lake has a unique shape that has inspired many an artist. “Oddly enough we live in Yates County and the lake is shaped like the letter “Y”…its a very magical place. It’s so beautiful…on that weekend, it will be awe inspiring.I really hope the Phish scene has a chance to explore this place…we will def help them. It’s a small adventure just getting from Watkins to here. Back roads, along water, laced with wineries and vineyards.”

From AJ Masthay:
Happy Summer Solstice everyone!
With SuperBall just a few weeks away I’ve been getting inquiries about whether or not I’ll be doing anything for it. Short answer, yes. Actually, Ill be doing three prints, but not a triptych, instead Ill have a single large print along with two “mini-prints”. All three will be available separately, although there will be a nice discount for buying the three together.
I know, you’re saying “Great AJ, that’s all well and good, but this email is useless with pictures!” Well, for the first time in a long long time, I will be selling these prints exclusively in the lots. Yup, going old school, no sneak peeks, no internet sales, no paypal. (Okay, if anything is left over they’ll go up on the website, but only if there are leftovers…) Glen Close camping will be the home base for us at SBIX, but Ill be venturing out with my wares and will likely end up wherever Shakedown is. So long as I get a cell signal, Ill be tweeting/facebooking my location to help folks find me if they are so inclined. Be sure to follow/friend me if you’d like to get updates.
