About Jim Pollock: A Phantasy Pheast
Jim Pollock is an internationally renowned artist best known for his bold and vibrant linoleum prints associated with the band Phish. In the 1980â€™s as Phish toured relentlessly they embraced Pollockâ€™s unique and organic imagery for tour posters/flyers, t-shirts, and cd covers.
Jim Pollock: A Phantasy Pheast will reveal for the first time a complete retrospective on his two-decade plus career with a chronological collection of Pollockâ€™s life as an artist. In addition to his association with music art, Pollock has a low-key passion for activism and has artfully endorsed environmental and social issues from Hemp paper to solar power to a most ironic commentary on the countryâ€™s oil consumption.
A Phantasy Pheast is the largest and most extensive exhibition of Jim Pollockâ€™s artwork ever on display in one location. This exhibit also features a detailed tour through the artistâ€™s unique imagery, shows his technique and also allows the perfect chance meet the artist.
