new shows, new spaces

two shows in the same city in the same month.

march 21st, 2008
anthony correa and matt fuller have decided to take their combined years of experience in pretty much every facet of the skateboard industry and turn it into something a little more physical. offering up a new skate/boutique/gallery space under the name A-FRONT. located at 2205 washington next door to the darkhorse tavern, A-FRONT is like houston's answer to supreme or huf or ftc. with an even stronger emphasis on art. a fully functional gallery space, the shop's grand opening will also be the opening of their first show. featuring the art of GIVE UP and michael sieben, and the photography of travis howell and todd jordan.

christian azul and gonzo 247, the guys behind aerosol warfare, have been deep in houston graffiti since the writers' bench and vhs videos and other things 90s. hosting parties, producing videos, curating gallery shows, and painting murals all in the name of the bigger picture. after a brief hiatus from the gallery scene they have decided to jump back in and re-open their gallery in a new location. this time on hutchins just east of downtown houston next to the old jenni's noodle house. they gave me my first solo show in 2005 and now three years later have offered me another solo show that will coincide with their grand re-opening.

even though these openings are close together hopefully everyone will come out to both, as each show will host a completely different body of work. directions, times, show duration, fliers, and other information soon as the dates draw closer.

no pictures this time.
