Conceived in 1989 by Jorma & Vanessa Kaukonen, The Fur Peace Ranch is nestled in the rolling foothills of southeast Ohio. It is a place where both budding and seasoned musicians can immerse themselves and emerge with renewed inspiration and tangible progress in their music. Workshops are held throughout the Summer and into the Fall. One of the highlights is Art of Jerry Garcia on exhibit now until August 1st, 2016 (Jerry's birthday).
A fine artist from childhood who was painting in oils by the age of seventeen, Jerry Garcia in his youth thought of himself as “an artist who played music.” Throughout the years of his prodigious musical output he continued drawing and painting.
Now the Psylodelic Gallery presents the uncensored ruminations of this great musician whose consciousness and speculations interest and amaze us. To view a collection of art by Jerry Garcia is to be drawn in by his vision, his wit and the sheer abundance of his creative spirit.
