(PR) Wentworth Gallery, the world's leading fine art retailer,
announced that rock and roll Hall of Fame member Grace Slick will
bring her latest art exhibit to Orange County, making special
appearances in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach on Saturday, March 15.
I have included all the details below. I thought you might be
particularly interested in talking with her about one of her newest
pieces called Monterey.
The pinnacle event in Rock and Roll history took place in 1967 at the
Monterey pop festival. This was the first time that Jimi Hendrix
played in the US. The lineup of bands has never been duplicated. The
Who, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead and the Jefferson Airplane were a
few of the bands to converge at this magical event in the summer of
1967 in the town of Monterey California. They were joined by the
Mamas and the Papas, Otis Redding Neil Young and many other fellow
musicians that came to witness this monumental concert.
Everyone agrees that Monterey was the best festival that ever
happened. It was in a time when there was no mega corporate
sponsorship or commercialism, just great vibes and fantastic music.
"When Jimi took the stage and began to wail everyone's jaw dropped,
this was the man and his guitar we had heard so much about in reports
from his concerts in England. We all knew that we were in the
presence of true greatness. The crowd included almost everyone from
the SF and LA music scene. It was an unbelievably cosmic event," says
Grace Slick of the festival.
Now, on the 40th anniversary of the Monterey pop festival, Grace has
created a piece that reflects the day and the people that were there.
This magnificent work has been done in a very limited edition of 167
for collectors that want to have a piece of rock history.
Monterey has quickly become Grace's hottest edition to date and will
only be available at a few more exhibits.
During the exhibit she will be signing dedications and doing photos
with the collectors lucky enough to acquire one of these fantastic
Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, please visit
