The Authentic Experience
Though her manager was his usual very arrogant self, luckily Grace Slick was in a much better mood. Even better, they arrived separately (and at separate times).
Grace Slick was at Gallery 319 on Ventura Bl., in Woodland Hills, on Saturday 9/21/2013, to display, talk about, but mostly sell, her very exquisite artwork. What she wasn't there to do, was to sign any autographs. While her manager was making that point "very clear", he did allow me to walk around and view her artwork. Words, cannot describe the depth, the detail, the usage of colors and the incredible resemblance to the artists that she has painted. Her landscapes were amazing. I was simply blown away at her artistic talents. Seeing her pictures as I have seen before provide no justice, to seeing the brightness of these paintings so up close.
Since the average price tag for her art flirted between the $4,000.00 (low range) to well up to $20,000.00, I thought it best to concentrate on what I really came for, and that was her autograph.
Waiting now outside for her to shortly arrive, I asked her before she entered the gallery if she would sign. With a responding, "let's make it fast", Grace did sign 5 items for me (3 of which are pictured below). She got her "jab" in by saying "these will sell fast on Ebay". I explained to her that I am a collector and preservationist of autographed memorabilia, and did give her my card, asking her to view my website once she got back comfortably home. Her final response to me was a chuckling of "I don't give a shi** what you do with these".
Grace Slick is indeed a living legend, and this is only the 3rd time in 30 years of collecting, and first time in 20 years, that I have been able to obtain her autograph.
