SOUTH DaCOLA ART CLUB w/SHAG

I’m going to feature some of my art prints in my collection from time to time. These are two I own by artist SHAG (Josh Agle). I also own two signed gallery guides by him.

BOARD MEETING (This was the second print SHAG ever made and the first seriograph) I paid $40 for it, which included shipping from Australia. SHAG is from LA but there was only one gallery representing him at the time, and they were in Sydney. The last one of these sold for $550 – not sure what it is worth now.

THE DEFINITIVE RETROSPECTIVE (Artist Proof) The last one of this sold for $450 I paid $150 in silent auction at OP OX gallery in Minneapolis – not sure what it is worth now.

SHAG’s work has a late 50’s, early 60’s beatnik vibe to it. Maynard G. Krebs of the “Many Loves of Dobie Gillis ” would have snapped his fingers in approval. He stirred up controversy, in those days, because viewers suspected that Krebs smoked wacky tobacky. Bob Denver played Krebs, who frequented a coffee house with Dobie and the rest of the gang, similar to another T.V. show, “Friends.” As everybody knows, he is better known as Gilligan. Tuesday Weld and Warren Beatty were also castmates in “Dobie.”
