    I don't have any real art but I've collected silk screen posters from Dave Matthews Band concerts I've attended. All still rolled in cardboard tubes. One of these days they'll find a frame and a wall. 


    Those are really cool. Just take them with you to Costco and get them framed already. You’ll be happy you did. 

    Saw DMB back in the early 2000s. The real treat was that Bela Fleck opened for them, and the second set featured Fleck and co. just jamming along. Highlight for me was a 30 minute rendition of #41. Available here, if you’re curious. 



  • We have sh!tloads of art, much in storage.  Stuff we made, friends made, originals from other artists and some prints that we bought.  Much in storage.  To scratch the surface....


    Really a cool collection, Carey. Can you advise as to which pieces are yours/Brigitte’s (sp?)?

    What a trip! What a perfect opener and to come out to jam with them when have been even better! How cool is that! I'll definitely give it a listen when I'm out in the garage this afternoon. 

    The only poster I don't have is the Alpine show in 03. It was the first year they made posters for each of their shows. It's a regular poster and not silk screened. I've only ever come across one or two of the posters for that particular show and I either missed the sale or they sold for way too much. I've always thought about making my own poster for the show. Just to have something to hang for that particular show.

    What's cool about the silk screen is that their limited to around a thousand posters per show and signed by the artist who made the poster. Once I redo my basement I'll definitely have to get them out and framed. 

    Thanks again for the video. I can't wait to give that a listen!

    Cool backstory. My suggestion is to stay on your search and if you’re persistent, you will find the Alpine poster - though I would expect you’ll have to shell out for it. I have a friend who is a huge, huge DMB fan. Incredibly tight band live.

    I want to say they sold somewhere around $400/piece. If money were endless I wouldn't even question it. The downfall is that it's a regular poster. I don't think the wife would be on board. I can't even see myself spending that type of money on a poster. The hard part is that it's incredibly rare to come across one being the first year of posters. The show already had a limited amount of posters and not too many have stuck around pushing 20 years later. The other bummer part was that they used the same image for a good portion of the tour that year and just changed the show name on the poster. So the poster itself isn't really anything that special but a still a "want" type thing. There is website called Dave posters that shows all the different types of posters made for each show. The last time I checked they didn't even have a poster image for the show I attended. For the longest time I didn't even think they made one. I've seen a couple now over the years of searching and I know they exist. Definitely a unicorn for DMB posters!

    One note - I have absolutely found framing to be something you get what you pay for.  We’ve taken things to Michael’s to be framed and then had to take them somewhere else to be reframed.  

    For prints and simple things we’ve been using frameiteasy.com.  You just need to measure your frame, pick some styles, and a week or so later a US made frame shows up.  I’ve had one CS interaction, and it was easy too, I’d highly recommend them.

    Guess I took this to be too literal!  Art to me is something that we appreciate and ESPECIALLY something that WE MADE. 

    As a simple for instance...

    Or using something found in nature...and then made useful

    Or say this "Rocky Snail" I made for some friends boys...

    It is called North Lake (how original!) and is in the Eastern Sierras, southwest of Bishop.

    Do you want to see what it looks like on my wall? If I haven't misunderstood you, here it is.

    My Uncle is a ceramic artist of some renown out near Portland. If you Google Astoria Anagama kiln he will come up. We have several of his pieces in our home, but can’t find the photos (currently visiting the wife at the hospital). He is somewhat eccentric, as you would expect of an artist from Portland, as evidenced by his sky blue tooth he made and had his dentist implant.

    Here are some images of his work:

    Wow. Beautiful. My wife and m-I-l are huge into pottery, so I will have to show them this. 

    All the best to your wife in hospital.
