ANGELA DAVIS: Decks and Dialog

Former student of ours at North High and long time friend of Homewood Studios, Angela Davis, is having her second show in our gallery. This time her work consists of twenty-five new paintings and several painted skate boards... "decks" in the parlance of those who know.

About the work in the show, Angela writes:: The motivation behind this work is that I wanted to express how I feel about certain issues like gun violence, lack of positive images in the media and more. I hope my art will help start a dialog with yourself and others, and make you more aware of these issues and how to solve them together.

With the decks, I skated as a teen and I always wanted to do skateboard art and have a line of decks. In the last year I've done two decks for the Drop In Skate Deck Art Show at Modist Brewing and four decks that are in the exhibit for Shoreboards. In the future I plan on doing many more decks.

Opening Reception Saturday August 3rd from 5pm to 8pm

Gallery Talk - 2pm to 3:30 on Saturday, August 10th
