Dan Blakeslee's "Draw Them In" poster exhibit includes nearly 100 rock posters drawn by Blakeslee over his 30-year career as an artist and musician. The poster art consists of images of mermaids, jack o'lanterns and offbeat characters with a whimsical, dreamlike approach. The media Blakeslee choses varies: scratchboard, pen and ink, silkscreen, spraypaint stencil and more leaning toward rustic timeless imagery.
The "Draw Them In" exhibit runs December 1, 2023-January 19, 2023. Contact PMAC for specific gallery hours.

ABOUT DAN BLAKESLEE
With a suitcase of songs, Maine folk troubadour Dan Blakeslee ventured into the subways of Boston in 1995 to practice his craft. He has been making music and art throughout New England ever since, leading him to tour the U.S. performing with Langhorne Slim, The Low Anthem, David Wax Museum, Lydia Loveless, The Lumineers, Old 97′s, Brown Bird, Josh Ritter, Death Vessel and Kimya Dawson among others. In 2015 his dream of playing Newport Folk Festival became a reality, where Bob Dylan went electric 50 years earlier. Blakeslee’s band The Calabash Club formed in 2008 and released their third album together “Christmasland Jubilee” a rollicking, jubilant Christmas album on December 1, 2020. Blakeslee is unafraid to bare his very soul on stage, emptying a loaded cache of emotion and passion onto the stage for all to witness, explore and devour.
