To honor the art which often accompanies the best of “Sex, Drugs & Rock "n' Roll”, the Egan Gallery has partnered with local musician, sound and lighting guru, Roy “El Roy” Zartman for a cult movie and gig poster and memorabilia exhibition spanning Roy's massive 40+ years in the industry. Curated by local activist and Egan Gallery owner, Stephan “Bax” Baxter, favoritism will surely be shown to the most outrageous work from each era. The show’s opening shall be held during Downtown Fullerton Art Walk on Friday September 5th from 6 – 10. The closing reception will take place on Saturday August 23 from 6 – 9 pm. The gallery will also accommodate any collectors requesting private tours. Please make arrangements via email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a fixed appointment and private tour.
On display and for sale at the Egan during the month of August will be many original and numbered first run cult classic film posters addressing topics such as sex crazed biker chicks and the evils of Mary Jane. These will be hung along with dozens of original psychedelic gig posters and hand bills by the likes of by Rick Griffin from the mid and late sixties, as well as other amazing rock and punk material picked up at some of the many gigs Roy himself played and worked. There will also be many display cases of wrapped but unframed posters which guests purchase at an even more reduced price. The psychedelic bands in particular their favorite artists to use on flyers and the psychedelic era was rich in competition between artists attached to each of the bands. The posters on display at this exhibit will represent the high water mark of cooperation between musicians and fine artists. Everything on display will be an original printing and everything will be for sale well below the collectable retail price.
