GRACE SLICK BIOGRAPHY

gordonHuetherGallery_GraceSlick.jpgGrace Slick was born on October 30, 1939, in Evanston, a suburb of Chicago Il. Her father was an investment banker and her mother was a singer in the early 40's. After moving to Southern California in the mid 40's, they finally settled in Palo Alto, Ca.

Grace stayed in the Bay Area until she left to attend Finch College in New England. She later attended the University of Miami and studied art before returning to San Francisco, shortly before she joined her first band, The Great Society in 1965.

After a short time Grace and some of her fellow band mates formed the legendary group Jefferson Airplane and went on to Record some of rock history's most noted classic songs, including White Rabbit and Somebody to Love.

Throughout the next 20 years, Grace continued to become an icon of popular culture, music and a new generation through her signature-style music and outspoken presence. Over the years, she and her band mates took several forms including Jefferson Starship, Starship and for Grace, several solo albums with Paul Kantner, but always remaining a touchstone in Rock and Roll.

In 1989 Grace put down the mike for the very last time. Without missing a beat, she picked up her brush as a continuation of her life-long work as an artist. Where she once expressed her insightful observations of the world around her and within through voice, she is now speaking through her paintings.

In 2000 Grace began sharing her works with the world in art exhibitions. Since that time, Grace Slick's art has shown in some of the most revered galleries and much like with her music, she has attracted a devoted following of art collectors who have found the same power on her canvas' as once was in her music.

When Grace is not traveling to art openings around the world she lives and paints in her Malibu, CA home.
