While we already have offered to us a wonderful collection of art, we're still looking for more -- we want this exhibit to include the best work of the period 1950 to 1975. We're looking for the iconic paintings, the ones any SF fan will recognize, as well as enough paintings by each of the major artists to provide a glimpse of the talent they brought to SF.
We're focusing on the artists whose careers were centered in our period -- many of today's greatest artists began before 1975, but reached their peaks afterwards and are thus not the focus of this exhibit. We're especially interested in art by:
- John Schoenherr
- Frank Kelly Freas
- Jack Gaughan
- Paul Lehr
- Ed Emshwiller
- Richard Powers
- Alex Schomburg
- H.R. Van Dongen
- Frank Frazetta
- Tim Kirk
- Gray Morrow
- Jeff Jones
- Gervasio Gallardo
If you have a piece by one of these artsis, may we arrange to borrow it? Do you own a piece which might be appropriate for the show which you'd be willing to loan? Send us a picture it doesn't have to be high resolution or anything, just enough so we can know what piece it is. You don't even have to send a picture just tell us on what book or magazine cover it was used and we'll find it. Tell us who the artist was, how big it is, and where it was published. You can mail the information to our address or email it (digital photos are fine) to: ArtRetro@Noreascon.org.
Help us make this one of the highlights of the convention the kind of exhibit where you can be lost in wonder for hours.
There are quite a few pieces that we'd especially like to exhibit if we could, and we've shown a few of them below:
Alex Schomburg (The frontispiece for the Winston Juveniles series)
Frank Kelly Freas
