The FTS Gallery in Stratford is preparing for “Painted Sleds,” an art show demonstrating the skate deck as a canvas. The opening reception will feature several talented artists lending their creativity to the gallery by displaying their customized decks on the walls of FTS. The evening will also include vending from World Weapon Clothing (Brooklyn, NYC) and Bridgeport’s finest, Rampage Skate Company.
The evening is also a meet-and-greet, and you can shake hands with the newest member of the FTS family. Mr. Alex Harris is a tattooer from Black Rock, but is plying his trade in New York. It was during his guest spot at FTS a few weeks ago when the gallery witnessed “an individual with high energy and positivity, qualities which are privy to the Forest To Shore culture.”
“Within the next several weeks we will be booking appointments for Alex every Tuesday at our shop. Soon, he will become a permanent artist at the gallery, so be sure to raise a toast to this fine artist when you see him at the show,” says the gallery curator, Mr. Momo Picklebelly.
