Blowout Opening Reception

Light Grey Art Lab’s newest exhibition, Blowout, features the personal work of 40 international tattoo artists who have come together to express the high energy, powerful linework, and provocative nature inherent in tattoo art. Curated by Uptown Tattoo, one of the Twin Cities most beloved tattoo shops, Blowout features work from some of the best tattoo artists from around the world, and gives you an interesting look at the work these artists create outside of their day jobs!

And it's for a good cause! Not only does Blowout showcase the incredible talent and artistry of tattoo artists, it also exemplifies the sense of family found within the tattoo community. When local tattoo artist Tom Strom was involved in a biking accident, blowing out two disks in his back and requiring extensive surgery, local artist Nic Skrade the others at Uptown Tattoo began organizing a benefit show to help Tom pay for the overwhelming expenses of surgery and recovery!

Our hearts go out to Tom and we wish him the best of luck! Come down and show your support, as well!

And that's not all! Inspired by the spirit of Blowout, Light Grey Art Lab curated secondary exhibition, Beautiful Forever, which bring illustrators, designers and artists together to create a series of flash-art inspired temporary tattoos. Mixing the severity of tattoo art with the ephemeral nature of temporary tattoo stickers, Beautiful Forever is a fun and non-committal way to bare your style on your skin!

The opening reception for Blowout and Beautiful Forever is Friday, March 22nd from 7-10 PM.

RSVP via the Facebook Event Page!

  6. Lately, we’ve been running on pretty some custom woodworking initiatives inclusive of portions which includes desks, credenzas, eating tables, even multiple custom mahogany gates. Each of those portions calls for using numerous hardwoods. In the past, we’ve had our lumber milled and planed on the lumber yard, frequently due to the fact our small benchtop planer in the store wasn’t pretty as much as dealing with a big quantity of hardwood. However, as we’ve picked up greater custom work, it have become clean that having a first rate planer could assist store time and money, so it become time to upgrade. We determined that the DeWalt DW735 black friday 13-inch, 2-pace planer could fill the space among our smaller underpowered planer and a big business planer.
