National Exhibitions & Archives to Host
Rock 'n' Roll Grand Opening Celebration at The Shirt Factory
GLENS FALLS, NY: Over 75 one-of-a-kind, photographic panels, based upon iconic photographs immortalized both in pictures and commentary by Robert Altman, the legendary photographer from Rolling Stone magazine's early heyday will go on special sale to the public at National Exhibitions & Archives, LLC's grand opening celebration at The Shirt Factory, Suite 203 starting Friday, November 23.
The large format photographic panels, some measuring 8 feet long, were previously on view in Manhattan filling all 39 windows at Macy's in Herald Square and on the grounds of the 1969 Woodstock Festival at The Museum at Bethel Woods. Images include iconic 1960s figures such as: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tina Turner, Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, Pete Townsend and Dennis Hopper.
“My favorite image has to be Tina Turner which graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine's Book of Covers, which would certainly be the topic of conversation hanging in someone's trendy, hip loft,” said Victoria Ann Rehberg, president of National Exhibitions & Archives, LLC who has over the past twelve years curated and loaned over 100 major exhibits to museums worldwide, viewed by an estimated 5 million museum-goers. “The collectible photographic panels, specially priced at $100 and $150 are absolutely the most unique gifts you could give that special someone,” Rehberg added.
Robert Altman is an internationally acclaimed photographer who studied under Ansel Adams and is best known as a chief photojournalist for Rolling Stone magazine. His work has appeared on NBC, PBS, MTV and VH1. Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, Mojo, The New York Times, People, The San Francisco Chronicle, The San Francisco Examiner, The Smithsonian Institution and on the runway at Paris Fashion Week donning the collections of celebrated fashion designer Manish Arora.
Altman's photographs depict an affectionate tribute that juxtaposes tie-dyed hippies in the Haight- Ashbury against history-making photos of huge rock concerts and peace marches. They portray the youth revolution in full swing—the writers, musicians, movie stars, organizers, and political leaders that made it happen. Aside from some of the most recognizable photographs from the 1960s, many of the photographs are rare or little-known, providing freshness and immediacy to a revealing overview of a tumultuous decade. A cultural upheaval in pictures!
