Fans of Garcia and the Dead came from Vermont, Maine, and several other parts of the country to see Jerry's art.

An art gallery in Bucks County will be showing and selling artwork created by one of rock music’s most beloved frontmen.

Arete Gallery, located at 122 South Main Street in New Hope, will be showing the artwork of Jerry Garcia, the late frontman of the Grateful Dead, from Aug. 1 – 9. The gallery will feature several artistic creations made by the late frontman, who manned the helm of the group for close to 30 years.

“As we celebrate ‘The Days Between’ the team here is thrilled to honor not only his musical expertise but his creative spirit, it fills you with energy as soon as you walk in,” the gallery said online. “Come join us in Jerry’s living room.”

Even the dates of the art show pay homage to the late musician. Garcia was born on Aug. 1, 1942 in San Francisco, California, and passed away on Aug. 9, 1995 in Forest Knolls, California at the age of 53.

Since his death, his band has regrouped under different names, the most recent iteration being Dead & Company, which saw singer and guitarist John Mayer fill in for the late frontman.
