Summer Concerts In Springfield Township
Experience a concert unlike any we’ve designed before! The Hiders will debut the release of their 8th album, “Forever at the End” on the patio of the Grove. While the band is playing, guests will be invited to travel to a tree lined area of the venue, virtually approaching Doc Galahan’s world of wonder. The world will consist of interactive artworks with hologram, 3D, and lenticular characters. Food truck items, concessions, beer, wine and seltzers will be available for purchase. This event will be viewable live on Waycross. Purchase a hologram prism for your cell phone for just $5 to take the holographic experience with you. Rainout information: 513-522-2108, option 4.
About the Art and Artist
"Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition" - Max Ernst
Doc Galahan is a Cincinnati-based pseudonymous artist, printmaker and writer who reimagines 19th century engravings into a menagerie of steampunk creatures, autonomous beings and experimental curiosities. This exhibition is a first act, an introduction of the characters and the setting of an alternate Victorian-era Cincinnati renamed as Queensgate. It is a first step in a larger tale, which Doc explains is about a world similar to our own: "A world split down the middle, plagued by civil war and fractured between those who are human and those who are supernatural. It is a warning from a world too afraid and too proud to overcome and ultimately embrace their differences".
With this first exhibition, Doc Galahan has taken 25 prints and has re-imagined them by presenting them in various visual formats: Anaglyph 3D prints, Lenticular prints and Holographic installations. Each of the 25 original prints will also be on sale on various, exquisite papers at the event.
This exhibition is the first step in a journey in which Doc Galahan will be revealing his story through art and literary releases over the course of 2021 and 2022. Proceeds of the art will be used to fund a large format art book that combines each print with 25 short stories.

About the Hiders
" Memory believes before knowing remembers "
A cryptic quote from Faulkner that bannered The Hiders website and hinted at their own cryptic trajectory and identification with the disenfranchised.
Perhaps a self-fulfilling prophecy of their namesake, The Hiders have slipped through the mainstream cracks but after over a decade of watching bands rise and fall they have persisted and have become a stalwart of the Midwest music scene. Developing a cult fan base, creating a seamless and consistent body of work and garnering 'off the radar' success with international record sales and some high-profile licensing.
The Hiders are carving their own path. - David Swan

About the Collaboration
Recently collaborating on the design of their 8th album, Doc Galahan and Hiders decided to marry their "covid creations". They saw similarities in story, depth and messaging between the two works and knew they wanted to do something beyond an anaglyphic design for the new album. This event is a celebration of those two works.
