A Conversation with Grace Slick
Jun 17 , 2014 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 11:00PM
As one of the founding members of Jefferson Airplane, Grace Slick recorded legendary songs such as "White Rabbit" and "Somebody To Love." For more than 20 years, Slick participated in several incarnations of the band including The Jefferson Starship, Starship and several solo albums with Paul Kantner. Slick retired from the music business in 1989 and now prefers a paintbrush to a microphone. Having started a new career in the visual arts in the mid-1990s, Slick's first art show was in Ft. Lauderdale in 2000. Since then, she has had over 100 exhibits and is represented by some of the best galleries in the United States. Painting professionally now, her work has been well-received by collectors, as well as critics. Slick's art communicates the same type of high energy of that in her music of the late '60s. Raw and energetic would be a good description for some of her works, while detailed and warm would describe others. Please join as we welcome Grace Slick to the GRAMMY Museum, in association with Gallery 319, for an intimate conversation, moderated by Scott Goldman. Before the discussion, an exhibition of Grace's artwork will be on display, with her newest piece, High Tea being premiered. A portion of the proceeds of any art sold will benefit the GRAMMY Museum. After the discussion, Slick will be available to dedicate any artwork purchase.
