"Pacific & Northwest" is an art show showcasing the happy, fun, and colorful paintings of Bwana Spoons and Tripper Dungan.
Bwana's pieces will primarily be focused around dinosaurs (having been inspired by his trip across the country stopping at dinosaur track museums - the strange American road-stop attractions frequently found in the middle of nowhere).
Tripper's work will be focused on the culture of the West Coast - from big trees to hot dogs. All done on scavenged pieces of wood and made with as eco-friendly a process as possible.
Both artists are creating hand-shaped and painted skateboards as well as a variety of installation items that will make you freak out and get super stoked. 3D glasses will be provided to all guests so they can experience the art and gallery in a vibrant new way.
