Decked Out rolls into Olive Hyde

Submitted By Irene Jordahl

Cool art and hot wheels converge when Olive Hyde Art Gallery welcomes Decked Out Skateboard Deck Art and Photography Show. The show commemorates the one year anniversary of the Fremont Skate Park in Central Park and showcases the artwork of more than 33 artists who, in most cases, are skateboarders as well.

The range of artistic styles weave together different aspects of the skateboard culture including graffiti art, tattoo art, and pop surrealism. All of the work is skateboard themed and the pieces range from photography to works on canvas. The actual skate deck itself, however, is the surface that most of the artists choose to create their work on, said guest curator, artist, and skateboarder Matt Ritchie.

This exhibition features outstanding works by artists from Berkeley, San Jose, San Ramon, San Francisco, Vacaville, Sacramento and other locations throughout the Bay Area to Los Angeles and even one from New York. Participants include Christie Benjamin, John Berger, Paul Bosch, George Campise, C.B . Canga, Brian Canio, Greg Dyer, Philip Eggleston, Emonic, Joe Fenton, Todd Fuller, Ricardo Gonzalez, Jessica Jenkins, Joe Kelly, Marcos Lafarga, Phillip Long, Patrick Lugo, Cameron Miller, Joseph Murdach, Patrick O' Connell, Shannon O' Connor, Goran Rajkovik, Matt Ritchie, Lucien Shapiro, Timothy Tang, Joey Vela, Visible Damage, Richard "Ricky" Watts, Jonathan Wayshak, Cody Williams, Nana Williams, and Lauren YoungSmith.

ÒDecked OutÓ opens with a reception on Friday, May 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and runs through June 7. The Olive Hyde Art Guild sponsors the reception with light appetizers. This gathering is a great opportunity to meet the artists and talk a little shop; whether an artist, skateboarder, enthusiast of cool art shows, or all of the above, this exhibit is sure to leave its mark.
