GE visits for a laughter-filled workshop!

Joking around with us and each other the entire workshop, GE‘s team effortlessly embraced their creative sides at the gallery and took no time in getting comfortable with their spray cans on the street. Their afternoon culminated in the production of one large-scale mural with the phrase “You got served” written across its center! 21 23 Email us at to make your group’s event happen!

Announcing: Take Flight

We’re excited to announce “Take Flight”, an exhibit curated by CAMER1, opening Thursday, March 12th, 6:30-9:30pm, and showcasing artists from the new television reality show “Street Art Throwdown”.

Cameron “CAMER1” Moberg, a contestant in the show, will be joining us as we celebrate the new steps in the careers of contestants and artists Agana, Annie Preece, Grimnasty, Ivan “Gath” Preciado, Jenna Morello, Leba and Camer1.

There is a lot of anticipation around how these artists will play with the theme. Some artists will be taking a literal approach – with depictions of astronauts and birds – while others are going for a more abstract understanding of the phrase. On a subtle level, the title relates to the feeling an artist gets when they completely align with the creative process – a weightlessness where time is a blur and all that exists is the artist and air. See what form emerges from these artists’ work at the opening of Take Flight!
