Joe Ely Print Available
Joe Ely Portrait

After Jim Eppler painted this Joe Ely portrait in 1978, his good friend Spider Johnson purchased it. After several relocations and a divorce, Spider ran across the painting in storage and posted a photo of it on Facebook. Joe Ely fans immediately wanted to buy it, and even though Spider mischievously led them on a bit, he never wanted it to leave the family. So, the solution was to make a gift of the painting to old friends Joe & Sharon and work out a deal with the artist to make giclee reproductions available to all the fans. The presentation was done during Ely's January 26, 2013, concert at the Odeon Theater in Mason, TX, with the stipulation that all proceeds be donated to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM).


Donations to the Odeon Theater, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, are tax-deductible.
