THE ART OF WOODSTOCK
30 Days of Peace, Love and Artwork on Greenwich Avenue
Thursday, August 1st through Saturday, August 30th
50 years ago, a music & arts festival took place on Yasgur’s Farm in upstate New York. This cultural phenomenon now known as Woodstock was billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music.” C. Parker Gallery, 409 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, brings the “art” back to the Festival with 30 days of Peace, Love and Artwork featuring works from many of the original Woodstock performers such as Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, Santana, The Who, plus an original painting from Graham Nash.
“The Art of Woodstock” will also include a special collection of fine art photographs from Woodstock official photographer Baron Wolman who documented the festival for Rolling Stone Magazine. Baron’s photographs go beyond the music and open a window into how life was during the festival. The exhibit will also showcase Wolman’s photographs of musicians who performed at Woodstock such as Joan Baez, Santana, Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Sly & the Family Stone, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, The Band, Johnny Winter, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Jimi Hendrix.
