Jukebox Poster Art

The Main Street Jukebox* in Stroudsburg, PA held an Opening Reception featuring the work of Poster Artist Earl Kessler* on Saturday November 7th. Among the records, CDs, and even cassette and 8 track tapes of vintage (and not so vintage) quality, was a wall filled with colorful depictions of events enticing the mind with memories of those events they might have (or wish they had) encountered along with creating an anticipation of those they might like to experience in the future. There were very few of the later, but there were enough to whet one’s appetite.

Many of the posters depicted shows which were featured at The Sherman Theater* in Stroudsburg, PA during the recent years including their while Dream of Fire, Methodical, Railroad Earth, Tea Leaf Green, and The New Familiars Concerts along with their annual Halloween Screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” In addition to these, there were posters from past and future installments of The Severed Sinema Series* Earl* hosts at The Sherman Theatre* every month showcasing the best classic horror, cult, and art house cinema. The exhibition continues until November 30th. Please Contact The Main Street Jukebox* at 570-424-2246 for more information.

The Next installment of The Severed Sinema* Series held at The Sherman Theatre* in Stroudsburg, PA will be on Thursday November 19th presenting the films, “Horror Hotel” and Carnival of Souls” along with a short film by surrealist artist Salvador Dali entitled, “Un Chein Andalou.” However, the next event scheduled to take place at The Sherman Theatre will be The Dickey Betts and the Great Southern Concert on Friday November 13th at 8pm. Perhaps there’ll be a poster designed by Earl* for the show on display. It would be worthwhile going if even to see it. In any case, please Contact The Sherman Theatre* at 570-420-2808 for more information on both events. You’ll find more photographs in The Forwardian Arts Society Visual Arts Gallery.
