Walnut Street Gallery and The Art of Rock & Roll®

   

   Inside the Gallery    Holiday Soiree 2010 
 

Rock and Roll was not in the mission statement, Rock and Roll Art was not part of the business plan, but very quickly it became the main focus for Walnut Street Gallery. Bill and Laura Eveleigh started Walnut Street Gallery in 1989 with a simple vision to bring internationally and nationally known contemporary artists to the Fort Collins, Colorado area. However, within a month of opening their gallery they were working with Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones and Baron Wolman, the first chief photographer for Rolling Stone Magazine.

The gallery hosted their first show for Ronnie and Baron in the fall of 1989 and it was an overwhelming success. The collectors embraced this new art form with a vengeance and the Eveleigh's decided to take their show on the road. Traveling to cities where rock bands were playing for several days, Walnut Street Gallery set up mini galleries near the concert venues.

At the mini galleries they sold the works of the musicians, album cover artists and photographers associated with the bands. Then the musicians began to take notice. Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, John Entwistle of The Who and Tico Torres from Bon Jovi all asked to participate in art projects with Walnut Street Gallery. The gallery set up a website and began promoting these musicians' artwork worldwide.

In 2012 Walnut Street Gallery has seen another change. We have gone completely virtual – operating exclusively on the web. We will host events, maintain contact through our e-mail blasts and Facebook page and continue to provide the cool art, posters and photography we have for 23 years. We will meet with clients on an appointment basis – just call us at 800 ROCKOUT!

Today Walnut Street Gallery continues their work with the musicians, album cover artists and photographers in the music industry. After 23 years the collectors may be going gray, the musicians may be slowing down, and the Eveleigh's prefer home to life on the road. But the music and the art of rock and roll will last forever.
