Calling all you club kids of the ‘80s, ‘90s and early ‘00s. Join me for the next “Office Hours” for a discussion with Steve Shook, a D.C.-area artist who uses his preferred media—silk screening—to memorialize venues past and present that have been the stages that launched many careers across all styles of music. From Punk and New Wave to Jazz and even Go-Go— the Nation’s Capital’s indigenous blend of funk, soul and jazz—Shook’s distinctive renderings of clubs like CBGB, 9:30 and Blues Alley will take you back. His works capture the essence of the music scenes in cities including Austin, D.C., New York and Chicago, among others.
We’ll get into the “beautifully imprecise”—his words—technique he uses to create his incredibly dramatic art, including how he collaborates with collectors to come up highly personal works for them. The Oceano bottles pictured are the result of just such a collaboration. Please join us, and send in your questions about music venues that resonate with you. Steve has probably done some of them!
