The Jerry Garcia Family, LLC in collaboration with StraxArt recently release a collection of Jerry Garcia original art. Besides, playing guitar for one of the greatest bands of all time, Jerry was an avid painter. Currently, the gallery shows 36 pieces in several different mediums including paint, charcoal, airbrush and markers and even oil pastels.
A few weeks ago I saw this amazing Trey painting on Facebook and I imminently reached out to find the artist. Sadie Young of Young Say Day Art is a fellow Denverite and a rare Colorado native. You can find her work on Instagram and shop in person at one of her Far Side Emporium Events. Looking to create something unique? Work with her to commission your own piece. Contact info below.

This summer I hit my 39th Phish show which equates to about 22 show prints from my adventures across the country. Getting each one of these beautiful posters framed is a hassle and insanely expensive. While I have some friends who love to DYI, I have tried and failed miserably, so many fingerprints and dust.
Back in college I had a reliable farmer who cut me major deals, my Phish Red Rocks 09 print is beautifully framed in a distressed turquoise wood frame with gold trim, and it only cost me $150! These days I stick to the basic white mat with black frame and I have been quoted $300 to $800 for framing!! All of that has completely changed now that I have found Famebridge. I read about Framebridge on my daily Netted email and used their discount to frame my AJ Masthay Gorge 2013 print for the all in price, of $118.15. Yep, you read that right $118.15 for this custom frame. You can use my discount code BLUEMOUNTAIN for 15% off you order too!
1. Download the app or use the website to pick out your frame. If your having trouble you can leave it up to their design experts who will pick the 4 best options from you to choose from based on your piece.
2. Pack & ship your print – shipping is totally free within the continental US plus the will send you the proper packaging if you don’t already have it. Don’t have the physical print you can upload an image to the app or site to get framed too.
3. Sit back, relax and think of the money you saved! In a few days your print will arrive, so all you need to do is find a place to hang it.
Framebridge uses high-quality techniques and materials to insurance your print is archived correctly. Their standard matting technique is not ideal for all poster collectors. So, I shot them an email to see if they could use mylar corners. Of course, they can!!
Just add your request to the special framing instruction when you order or contact a team member and they will work with you to get exactly what you want. They can even accommodate double cuts so you can frame your ticket and poster together!
The worst part about custom framing is the absurd prices. That’s why I love Framebridge’s super easy pricing structure. You know exactly how much you are paying before you ship and shipping is always free!
Since my roomie, Kristina has moved out our poster wall has some major gaps… with Framebridge I can fill it in at a fraction of the price. Up next my prints from the Chicago GD50 shows! When you get your custom frame back be sure to tweet about it! I would love to see your final product!
