Mighty Mouse

Flesh & Bones

Davidson Fine Art's latest exhibit, Flesh & Bones, is a retrospective look at the work of Stanley Mouse, an American artist whose creative hand helped launch the psychedelic poster movement of the 1960s. He produced numerous posters for concerts at the Fillmore West and the Avalon as well as for individual bands and musicians, from The Steve Miller Band and Journey to Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. He also created designs for several album covers. But Mouse is probably best known for being one-half of the team that designed the infamous grinning skull and roses icon of the Grateful Dead.

Mouse's Bay area exhibit consists of drawings, paintings and prints that showcase a broad range of work, with special emphasis on his recent figurative pieces. An opening reception begins at 7 p.m. Fri., Feb. 23.

Flesh & Bones, Feb. 23-March 31, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sat., Davidson Fine Art, 725 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, free admission, 727-827-1888.
