Here we have a great source of communication and a great collection !
We have :
— a list of Geezers that are presently receiving our mailings
— photos from our past annual “Get-togethers” and other group gatherings
— a list of our creative friends who have passed and left their legacies of creative work and friendships
Also, “places we like”:
— “CommunityofCreatives.com” was created by Piet Halberstadt…
(to whom we owe so many thanks for creating this blog, GeezersGallery.com for us!)
Piet and his brothers Hans and Erik grew up witnessing the “Golden Age of Advertising in the San Francisco Bay Area” while assisting their father in “Hal’s” studio. Piet now lives and works in New York City. (He and I have been emailing across the US for months.)
Like us, Piet acknowledges “commercial art” as an equal with the “fine art” that was produced in the San Francisco Bay Area from 1945 to 1970.
If you have favorite samples (a few or a lot) that represent your talents in those days and can send a bio (short or long) to Piet, he will do all of the “eye-rolling” coding that it takes to include you in his “community of creatives”. [If the sample shows your part in a team effort (copy, type, image)…all credits can be listed.]
This offer is open, also, to the families who can honor the works of artists who have passed.
Any questions that you may have please reach Piet by writing a message via this email link : community of creatives.com
I will represent your current talent.
Piet will represent your past talent.
We hope to hear from you,
