Grace Slick, the ‘60s music icon of Jefferson Airplane fame, will be coming to St. Louis to showcase her art in a debut exhibit. Wentworth Gallery, the proud presenter of this rare opportunity, is located in the West County Westfield Shopping Center. Slick will make two special appearances; Saturday, June 16, 6-9 p.m. and Sunday, June 17, 12-3 p.m. All art is for purchase. 

Slick is best know as the rebellious leader, singer and songwriter of Jefferson Airplane, which recorded the classic rock songs "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love." Now she is enjoying fame as a painter, not just a musician.  It is the music and the turbulent, anti-war, freedom of expression, ‘60s era that has inspired her unique works of art; visual versions of Slick’s rock 'n' roll attitude and lifestyle. Some include renderings of Alice in Wonderland and music legends such as Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Pete Townshed and Sting, all personal friends of Slick’s.

Over the last 17 years, Slick has used art to communicate the same type of high energy and creativity of her rock 'n' roll years and amass an impressive collection of paintings, drawings, giclee’ prints and limited editions. Her creations are produced from a wide range of styles and mediums: pen, pencil, watercolor, acrylic paint and even some scratch board pieces. Besides being raw and energetic, some of her works are described as warm and detailed. The portraits have a special edge that only Slick can give them and her animals portray her love for animals and their character. In contrast, there are beautiful nudes executed in the classic Sumi style.  The exhibit promises to be a very interesting look at the world through the eyes of one of the most listened to women in rock history.
