“Get Uked” Artistically Embellished Ukuleles
20 of JahRoc’s artists have embraced the challenge to each paint a Ukulele for the Strings Attached Festival. Their idea is - “If we can’t play a ukulele then we’ll decorate one, and let those who can play it, enjoy it even more for its artistic style!” These fun little instruments truly are functional pieces of art… play it, then display it for all to admire. The only dilemma is choosing your favourite one…or two!
Guitar Private Collection
JahRoc Galleries are showcasing some very special high end guitars from private collectors including a custom made Casimi and a Mark Mainguard acoustic guitar. It is a unique opportunity to see these fine boutique guitars in the flesh, a wish come to life for many admirers of these musical works of art.
Designer Guitar Stands
JahRoc’s Gary Bennett and David Paris are renown for making artistic furniture of heirloom quality, enhancing the every day lives of collectors around the globe who enjoy living with their functional art pieces. They have designed a special collection of groovy wooden guitar and ukulele stands to entice the Strings Attached crowd, which will be on show alongside many more of their fine furniture pieces. Designer Gary Bennett will also be available to discuss custom orders.
