Former Jefferson Airplane vocalist Grace Slick says she can only focus on one thing at a time. "I can't take on different things at once. I mean, I can only focus on one man, one job and one whatever. When I was in music, I was married at the time and had a child. Consequently, two of those things suffered for my art."

These days, Slick says she has time to focus on her visual art, since her marriage to fellow Jefferson Airplane musician Paul Kantner has long since been dissolved and her daughter China has gown up.

In fact, Slick is so much into drawing and painting that some of her works are in an exhibition traveling around the country.

Both originals and reproductions will be available for purchase, and some of the proceeds will benefit the Grammy Foundation Art of Music program. "Back when I was singing, I did draw a bit," Slick said during a phone interview from her home in Malibu, Calif.

"I'd pencil pictures of people like David Crosby or whoever was a guest on our albums. Sometimes those drawings would wind up in our liner notes. But I didn't take drawing seriously until five years ago."
