East Austin-based Modern Rocks Gallery announces their latest exhibition, “David Bowie: Starman,” featuring a collection of rare David Bowie prints spanning the prolific artist’s career.
Steven Walker, owner of Modern Rocks Gallery, curated the exhibition which features many of Bowie’s most iconic shots, including album covers, obtained directly from the photographers themselves.
The prints on display include signed limited edition prints from Terry O’Neill’s “Diamond Dogs” album cover shoot, Justin De Villeneuve’s “Pin-Ups” album cover with British model Twiggy, Brian Duffy’s “Aladdin Sane” and “Scary Monsters” album cover shoots and Masayoshi Sukita’s famous session with Bowie for the “Heroes” album cover.
The show also features early Bowie prints from Alec Byrne, Brian Aris and his early 1990s era prints, as well as later prints from Kevin Cummins, Jake Chessum, Markus Klinko and more. The exhibition will run from Nov. 11 through the end of 2022 with an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 11, 2022 at Modern Rocks, located at 916 Springdale Road, Canopy, Building 3 Austin, Texas 78702.

Bowie themed cocktails and refreshments will be provided by Mark Shilling of ShillingCrafted.
