  2. Saturday, June 5, 11 am – 4 pm
  3. Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11 am – 4 pm

Fun was had by all the artists involved, much food and drink were consumed, and new friends were made. If you missed it, well, you just suck.

With the 4 other talented artists in the group show, Drub showcased 5 new pieces created specifically for this gallery. With constraints on subject matter, Drub explored the world of skaters – turning tricks… on their boards.

Four 13″x19″ pieces of skaters flying through mid-air, sweating and deftly moving their skateboards surrounded the centerpiece – a 3 foot by 5 foot poster installation of the 5th and final skater leaping through the sky hoping to land on an actual skateboard jutting from the wall! The poster is a one-of-a-kind piece which will now grace the wall of Drub’s bedroom in San Diego.
