Jim Pollock's Mock Show Poster Triples in Value Before Show Opens



Three days before Jim Pollock's benefit posters are officially released at the Mock Show: Red Rocks, the works have already appreciated in value and begun selling on ebay for three times their original value.

The run, that was created by Pollock and printed by Fred Hosman and Jewel Noll of HoscoPress in a signed and numbered limited edition of 500, sold on the Mock Show's website on speculation of what the finished design would look like. Collectors flocked to grab these unseen posters from the inaugural art exhibition with proceeds supporting music education in Denver area through the Mockingbird Foundation. $1,000.00 has already been granted to Red Rocks Elementary and more money will impact the local Colorado community thanks to Jim Pollock's Mock Show posters and event t-shirt creations silkscreened by hand by TabootArt in Denver, CO.

Very few event posters remain and will be available while supplies last on Saturday at the PollockPrints booth.

Tickets are sold out to Mock Show: Red Rocks. We encourage you not to show up without a pre-purhased event ticket.

"Mockingbirds are the true artists of the bird kingdom. Which is to say, although they're born with a song of their own, an innate riff that happens to be one of the most versatile of all ornithological expressions, mockingbirds aren't content to merely play the hand that is dealt them. Like all artists, they are out to rearrange reality. Innovative, willful, daring, not bound by the rules to which others may blindly adhere, the mockingbird collects snatches of birdsong from this tree and that field, appropriates them, places them in new and unexpected contexts, recreates the world from the world. For example, a mockingbird in South Carolina was heard to blend the songs of thirty-two different kinds of birds into a ten-minute performance, a virtuoso display that served no practical purpose, falling, therefore, into the realm of pure art."

- Skinny Legs and All by Tom Robbins

Mock Show Artists Poll

Mock Show Artists were asked three questions:

(1) What’s your favorite work?
(2) If you weren’t an artist what would you be?
(3) Where do you see yourself and your art going?

Here’s how some of them answered…

Isadora Bullock

1. One of my recent favorites is a lino print commemorating the Tower Jam from IT. I had wanted to put that experience into a poster format since it happened and really enjoyed trying to interpret the sound and show into one image.

2. If I weren't an artist I would be a toymaker.

3. I have a lot of ideas for new projects that exist outside of the Phish realm at the moment, but its hard not to keep making new prints when they are playing so many shows.



Tim Ripley

1. My latest work is my favorite piece at any time.

2. An architect. I've always been fascinated by architecture and building things.

3. I see myself creating paintings that are a bit more "out there". I also expect to be creating more and more block prints and screen prints in the future.



Joshua Jacobs

1. For me, my Beatles work stands out. This is work that really opened the doors for me to be more than a graphic designer for corporate america. This was the first time someone had commissioned me to do some work annd was my first real organic design project and put me on the map as an artist. I will sets of this Beatles work for sale at the Mock Show.

2. I was actually signed up to go to culinary school but switched to art school at the last minute. I look to cook.

3. I am trying to push the fine art side of my career, but love branding and marketing so much I hope to be able to continue doing shows like this while working towards being an art director.



Uncle Ebeneezer

1. Any time someone says they enjoy what we've done, that is the highest honor someone can bestow. We hold deep admiration for Jim Pollock's talent and the inspired creativity of all the artists involved.

2. If we weren't artists we'd be a just a couple of people making art. Actually, that's what we are.

3. I see ourselves and our art going to Shoreline and the Gorge after Red Rocks. And wherever this Halloween festival takes us as well. Maybe Miami for New Years. We're gonna keep on having fun and hope you do as well.



Michael Ortiz

1. I like em all.

2. If I weren't an artist what would I be... Insane!

3. I see my art going in and out of the hands of interesting people



Lindsey Kuhn

1. The poster i just finished... Because it is done!

2. If I weren't an artists I'd be an astronaut.

3. I see my art going as far as it will go.



Jonathan Lamb

1. My favorite piece I have created is our "No Anunciar!" installation. It was not only our largest installation to date, but it was at Andenken Gallery in Denver. A gallery that Like Minded has been trying to show at for several years. So it really felt like accomplishing one of our longer term goals.

2. If I wasn't an artist, I would be a ski guide.

3. I see myself and Like Minded Productions growing into the music festival scene and into underground galleries in the larger urban areas of this country.

Ryan Jerzy Red Rocks Mock Show Releases



Modeled after the municipal flag of Chicago, this is Ryan Jerzy's latest release dipicting his love of linoleum block carved printmaking.

The municipal flag of Chicago consists of two blue horizontal stripes on a field of white, each stripe one-sixth the height of the full flag, and placed slightly less than one-sixth of the way from the top or bottom, respectively. Between the two blue stripes are four red, six-pointed stars arranged in a horizontal row.

The three white stripes of the flag represent, from top to bottom, the North, West and South sides of the city. The top blue stripe represents Lake Michigan and the North Branch of the Chicago River. The bottom blue stripe represents the South Branch of the Chicago River and the Great Canal.



Jerzy is currently working on this Mock Show release (above) in homage to Jim Pollock's famous Walking Fish.

She is assending to the next phase with the help of the disks around her head : Aliens, Pyramids, 7th Chakra, Age of Aquarius, Quetzicotal. She has contact with the road. Behind - forming out of a double spiral mandela - are fish, turning into lizards, turning into mockingbirds, who fly off to Mount Icculus.

The front is a quote by Beethoven.
