"DIONYSUS – Tribute to Dionysus Records"
will be a stellar group art show dedicated to the record label of the same name famous for garage, surf, punk, rockabilly, lounge, exotica, insanity and even a little jazz music. Started in 1984 by legendary DJ LEE (Lee Joseph), Dionysus Records captured our hearts and ears with amazing music and cover artwork by many of our favorite artists today. This exhibit and party is being curated by ANDREW BRANDOU (aka HOWDY PARDNER) and will feature these 40 artists:

Watch for great DJ work, flowing drinks and lots of mayhem that evening as many of the artists will most likely be in attendance. The date for this awesome reception will be Saturday, July 9th, 2005 from 8 - 11 pm. Also visit the "SIDE SHOW" in our newly expanded gallery for a mini group show featuring: Naoto Hattori * Joey Remmers * Josh P Davis * Kari Barba * Joe Capobianco * Jef Kopp & Brad Burkhart. Thanks go to Joey Remmers for putting this together last minute. This too should be a great display of original artwork. Attendance to both shows is, as always, free and open to the public.

Email now and request to be placed on the artists’ waiting lists!

Welcome to PSArtBlog! Back in May 2003, my wife and I opened
m modern gallery in Palm Springs, California. We show artists and photographers that we especially find aesthetically pleasing and specialize in mod-pop, fashion, lowbrow, animation and art toys.

Some of the more well known artists we represent from time to time include: Josh (SHAG) Agle, Glenn Barr, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Eric Joyner, Mark Ryden, 60's and current supermodel VERUSCHKA and have even shown art pieces from well know musicians such as David J (Bahaus and Love & rocket's, Debora Iyll (Romeo Void), Rikki Rockett (Poison) & Marilyn Manson.

We find the artworld fascinating and a continued source of learning. It is our hope that this Blog will assist in keeping you up to date with local art openings, gallery events and other discussions pertaining to the art world (especially here in Palm Springs).

In our humble opinion the only reason to collect artwork is because you love it!
