*I remember now, in the pictures above people are outside chopping it up, gotta love the weather :-) but I digress now, the show was a great success, with a really large turnout. There were a ton of artist on hand that made it out for the show as well as Jack from Vinyl Pulse covering the event! Not to mention tonight was a special night because it was co-curator Sarah Jo's birthday (Happy b-day!)... now to the goods! If you thought he display at Designer -Con was big... there were even more custom 3" Yoka's added this time around, and it is truly an amazing thing to see this many custom art pieces in one place!
One thing that really set off the night was the attendance of some of the artists such as Scott Tolleson, George & Ayleen Gaspar, Ritzy Periwinkle, Nathan Hamill and many others not to mention a much needed taco cart parked right outside the front doors of the Black Maria Gallery, nothing like a late night snack! This really looked like an awesome show, and if you were unable to make it out, don't fret because it will be up until March 2nd and then it will be traveling around the country this year making multiple stops in states near you(Peep the schedule below).
If you would like to see all the Yoka's in one place, check out the official site HERE and you can also purchase them from there as well. A huge thanks goes out to Dov and Sarah Jo of DKE for curating such an awesome show and to Ritzy once again for snapping all the pics for SpankyStokes.com you rock!
