The Artwork of Grace Slick

Grace Slick

Area Arts began working with Grace Slick and her artwork in the fall of 1999. I was at a meeting in the Grateful Dead Productions headquarters in Novato CA. One of the people that worked there asked me if I would be interested in talking with Grace about the art that she was doing. I flew to Southern CA. and met with her. After the meeting we agreed to work together and develop her art line. The first exhibit that we held was in Ft Lauderdale FL. In January 2000. We premiered her first three limited editions; Slick, Garcia W&B and Janis Wood Nymph at the first show she attended. This exhibit was in Seattle WA. In June 2000. The art is extremely popular, thousands of people attended the exhibits. In the following years we produced over 100 exhibits across the country. These exhibits contained some of Grace’s finest paintings and limited editions.

During this time, we sold over 200 original works and published over 50 different hand signed limited editions. Many of which are considered to be her best work.

We are proud to have been the producer of the Grace Slick art exhibits. We hope that you enjoy the art as much as we have.

Thank You

Grace retired from Rock and Roll in 1989 and began a new career in the visual arts in the mid 90’s. Her first show was in Ft Lauderdale Fl, in 2000. Since then she has had over 100 exhibits and is represented by some of the best Galleries in the US and Europe.

Welcome to the visual Concert of Grace Slick’s artwork

Grace’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. The portraits of her rock contemporaries contain a certain mystique that comes from Grace’s personal relationship with these people. Her nudes are somewhat minimal pieces that suggest the Japanese sumi ink style of painting that is so difficult to master. Her animals contain all the love and good feelings that she has for all animals. The Wonderland pieces are a visual version of the song White Rabbit. The originals for this series are done on scratchboard to give them the intense detail.
