"FRESH" Exhibition and Upcoming Mural Event

The "FRESH" opening night was fun - we saw some great art at the Target Gallery and had a chance to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones. Below are some more snapshots from that night. I'm excited to announce that I'll be facilitating a mural workshop at the Torpedo Factory on Thursday, May 28. The schedule is as follows:

4-7pm: Gabriel Pons will give a workshop to participating high school students using Street Art techniques including paste-up collage and stencil. Students will use the inspiration of historic civil rights activist, Charles Houston, in this collective effort.

7-7:30pm: Panel Discussion - "The Art of the Tag" including panelists Marissa Botelho and Gabriel Pons.

7:30-7:45pm: Question and Answer session, refreshments to follow.
Also, rumor has it that there will be some b-boy breakdancing going on that evening - let's hope it comes through.

"FRESH" runs through May 31st - check it out...
For more information about this even, visit the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virgina.


The Torpedo Factory has several galleries and lots o' art studios...
