This is my last Show & Tell post as the general manager of Collectors Weekly. As of October 1st, I am retired!
First, some information about this print. It is by Dave Kloc, who I wrote about in September of 2021. Kloc designed this screenprint for a band called Goose, a Phish-adjacent jam band that played Red Rocks on August 18, 2022. I’m not sure how many were printed and sold at the show, but this one is from the artist’s edition of 50. Dimensions are 18x24. The background and man’s coat match the brown slice of Red Rocks cake, but there’s a second colorway in which the background and coat are a purple-ish blue. I like this one better.
As for retirement, for the past month I have been training a number of very nice and extremely competent individuals at Barnebys, our parent company, to manage Collectors Weekly. Please be patient with them as they learn how to re-categorize a quarter-million Show & Tell posts (selecting from almost 2,000 categories!) and respond to customer support, which includes S&T posts or comments that you’ve flagged as inappropriate. I always needed your help to run CW; the new team will, too.
Mostly, the reason for this post is to thank you for 13 great years. It has been a pleasure to see all the wonderful, cool, crazy, weird, beautiful things you have posted to Show & Tell—I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to share your collections with us. Some of you have even permitted me to share your stories and collection with CW readers—thank you for your trust.
Going forward, I will still be checking CW every day and posting as frequently as I can. Apologies in advance if I post too many rock posters… ;-)
Best wishes to you and yours,
