Offbeat L.A.: Dreaming of Wonderland- A Grace Slick Art Show at Mr Musichead Gallery, West Hollywood- October 17th


The space where music and art meet can be considered a dream zone. A hazy, crazy uber reality where anything might be possible. We are fortunate in Los Angeles to have the good fortune to view first hand works of art spun from the subconscious mind of a true surrealistic princess- the one and only Grace Slick. Hosted by Mr Musichead GalleryonThursday October 17th, an evening of unpredictable perceptibility is planned in an encounter with Grace herself, wisecracking, audacious and with limited fucks to give; undeniably a legend.

Retired from the rock and roll biz since the ’90s, she’s poured herself into weaving her spells in paint, creating alternative worlds on canvas. Her Alice in Wonderland-themed work is a trip down the rabbit hole, exploring curiosity wherever it might lead. Other work focuses on the malady of the current presidential nightmare and portraits of some of the tried and true geniuses she’s been lucky to know in her lifetime- Dylan, Clapton, Hendrix and Joplin. Her body of work is supplemented with self-portraits and psychedelic abstract pieces as well.

The Art Show at Mr. Musichead is billed as a cocktail reception and admission at first appears steep at $75. But what you are paying for is an exclusive experience, one that might certainly never occur again. Meeting Grace and having the first hand chance to view, and hopefully purchase, her work is a unique and once in a lifetime opportunity. Plus, it’s a benefit forVenice Arts, so really it’s a win-win. From Jefferson Airplane to the present day, Grace has been a force to be reckoned with- strong, willful and driven. She will be celebrating her 80th birthday on October 30th, a Scorpio with a stinger to prove it. Come experience this genius while you have the chance.
