LOT 7: Memories of Glen Campbell
Legendary Glen Campbell was a musician, artist and 2014 Open Hearts Award recipient.
This lot includes one-of-a-kind items commemorating his talent and work:
● A Glen Campbell Signature Custom Legend Sunburst guitar signed by Glen’s wife Kim, son Cal and daughter Ashley
● Giclee prints of Glen’s paintings from his time at Jane Seymour’s art studio and
● A DVD of “I’ll Be Me,” filmmaker James Keach’s documentary about Glen’s struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease during his farewell tour.
● Signed and Numbered Limited Edition (ed. size 400) Glen Campbell Memorial Poster by Hatch Show Print of Nashville, TN
In 1969, Glen Campbell became one of the first-ever Ovation Guitars endorsers. Through his nationally syndicated television program, “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” Glen brought an Ovation guitar into millions of American households every week.
“These guitars are both a celebration of our father’s music as well as a commemoration of the nearly half century relationship between Glen Campbell and Ovation Guitars,” said Cal Campbell. “Meticulous attention has been paid to every detail in order to faithfully recreate the sound of our Father’s original guitar and it’s our hope they will inspire future generations of artists to play, write, perform and create.”
As Glen was suffering from Alzheimer’s, in 2014, he spent a special day painting with Jane Seymour in her art studio. The two paintings he created that day hang in the Campbell family home in Nashville. This lot includes a numbered set of giclee prints of those extraordinary paintings.
On August 24, 2017, friends and family of Glen Campbell remembered him with a celebration of life and music. Included in this lot is a special memorial poster from a collection of 400 printed.
All proceeds from this auction lot will benefit the CareLiving Foundation in memory of Glen Campbell.
Donors: Ovation Guitars, Kim Campbell, Jane Seymour, James Keach
