“Get Uked” at JahRoc Opening Soiree Event
12 October 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join the gallery for the opening celebration soiree on Saturday 12th October between 4-6.30pm.
All are welcome to this free event.
Visit JahRoc Galleries during the Strings Attached Guitar Festival 11-13th October and groove to some live blues guitar by Graeme Dickinson with a glass of Margaret River fine wine, whilst perusing an exhibition of artistically embellished ukuleles, an enviable private guitar collection you would dream to own, and some groovy designer timber guitar stands.
Twenty of JahRoc’s artists have embraced the challenge to each paint a Ukulele for this inaugural “Get Uked” exhibition. Their idea is “If we can’t play a ukulele then we’ll decorate one, and let those who can play it, enjoy it even more for its artistic style!” These fun little instruments truly are functional pieces of art… play it, then display it for all to admire. The only dilemma is choosing your favourite one…or two!
A showcase of some very special high end guitars from private collector’s will also be displayed at JahRoc during the festival, including a custom made Casimi and a Mark Mainguard acoustic guitar. It is a truly unique opportunity to see these fine boutique guitars in the flesh, a wish come to life for many admirers of these musical works of art.
JahRoc’s Gary Bennett and David Paris are renown for creating artistic furniture of heirloom quality, and have designed a fabulous collection of wooden guitar and ukulele stands to entice the Strings Attached crowd, alongside many more of their fine furniture pieces. Designer Gary Bennett will be available to discuss custom orders as well.
Get down to JahRoc during the opening soiree to experience Graeme Dickinson live, playing a wide collection of Blue’s music from the 1920’s onwards, including some originals, with some Americana thrown into the mix.
