The Bahr Gallery, located in the charming Long Island village of Oyster Bay, is dedicated to finding good homes for the stunning psychedelic posters of the late 1960’s. We specialize in first printings, often signed, of Avalon, Fillmore, and other iconic venue posters which are highly prized by collectors and connoisseurs of the period. Most of our posters are previously authenticated and bought at auction from reliable, reputable vendors who have been in the market for many years.
Each work is carefully matted and framed with museum-quality glass and with attention to a stylistic framework that quietly enhances the art, while also letting it stand out in its brightly-colored swirling glory. About 5-10 pieces are framed and added to the Gallery each month from the owner’s substantial collection insuring that there is almost always something new to catch your eye and probably not let go for a few minutes.
More than 60 pieces are on display at any given time making The Bahr Gallery itself larger than many museum exhibits. The Gallery is full of placards describing the times and the contextual background that gave birth to these works of art. Visiting the Bahr is like going to a museum and you should probably block off a minimum of 45 minutes for your visit. Many people stay for hours and you are welcome to do so as well. As guitars are meant to be played, so are these posters meant to be viewed and enjoyed – perhaps one day in your home.
While we do have operating hours (see contact page for details because the hours do change with the season), we are also quite happy to have you come by for a private visit and a walk back in time. Please contact us to arrange your visit by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 516-283-1967.
