OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (November 26, 2021) – The Bahr Gallery, an art gallery dedicated to rare, first-edition, psychedelic rock poster art, has eight pieces on loan and available for view at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn NY through March 6, 2022. The Exhibition, titled, “Songs Without Words: The Art of Music,” opened on November 20 of this year.
Bahr Gallery is lending a stunning Jimi Hendrix lithograph called “Explosion,” by Martin Sharp, the original large Woodstock poster by Arnold Skolnik, and pieces by Bonnie MacLean, Wes Wilson, Rick Griffin, Stanley Mouse & Alton Kelley and Alan Aldridge.
The Bahr Gallery, currently running an Exhibition called “The Art of the Grateful Dead,” is the only art gallery in the U.S. dedicated to late 1960s psychedelic rock posters and displays a substantial collection at its Oyster Bay location, free to the public.
The Song Without Words Exhibition at Nassau County Museum of Art is described as:
“The never-ending dance of art and music crosses cultures and millennia. This comprehensive survey is symphonic in range. It includes not only masterpieces of art but instruments as well (such as Stradivarius violins, vintage guitars from rock legends, as well as percussion and string and woodwind instruments from all along the Silk Road) with a gallery of sculpture that can plays, including a walk-in gamelan. With such favorite artists as Degas, Vuillard, Gris, Bearden and Matisse, we add the contemporary artists for whom music is a constant source of inspiration, such Jasper Johns, Robert Wilson (a portrait of Lady Gaga), Idris Khan, Joan Snyder and many others. Just to make it fun, vintage photography and memorabilia showcasing rock, jazz and Broadway will join musical scores and manuscripts inscribed by the hands of the great performers and composers, such as Joni Mitchell, Bela Bartok, and Jimmy Webb”.
Bahr Gallery is located at 95 Audrey Ave., Oyster Bay NY 1177. The Bahr Gallery is open Friday through Sunday from 1:30-5:30pm and by appointment. Admission is free.
