Aug. 3rd, 2013. Today we look back at the art show we had the pleasure of hosting back in August of 2013. Affectionately called “Summer Slam”, this show featured the work of Dino Perez, Deity, Kasey Mahoney, Joe Ded, RASK, AR and Hannah Webb.
May 3, 2014. Heres a look back at our May 2014 art walk. A collection of GCS veterans. This exposition brought together pieces from 4 or 5 different previous art shows here in our gallery. How many can you name?
FEB 7th, 2015… GCS was happy to host the second edition of the “All Our Love” art show that takes place during february’s art walk. This specially selected group of artists represented some of what GCS loves and holds most dear. We thank all the artists that were involved in the show as well as the crowds that came in though out the night. Big thanks to Scarub from Living Legends for his in store performance, which we covered in a previous post. DJ’s Real and AB were on the decks all night long. DJ AB had a HUG STATION out in front of the shop for the night promoting peace in the hood. And DEITY and Kimberly Duran finished up their latest pieces steps away from our front door.
JAN 3rd, 2015. GCS hosted our annual “$50 and Under” open art show during the january art walk. This year marked the fourth year throwing this art show. We learned early on in the process that the art walks in january have two strikes against them. It comes close to the New Year holiday and after everyone has spent most of their expendable income on Christmas gifts and merrymaking. So we figured the only way to combat that is to open the show to lower priced pieces and try to invite as many artists we can to participate. This show is a great way for our customers and students to have their work hang in our gallery for the first time. And it also allows veteran artists to do a little ‘studio cleaning’ and let some pieces go at a lower rate than usual in order to get them into a new home. At well over 100 art pieces, this was a well attended art show and more than a few pieces found new owners. We are always happy to do this show, it allows us to create new connections and showcase new talent. If you are interested in participating in this or any other art show, stay posted to our Facebook or Instagram accounts for announcements and calls for art.
Feb. 7th, 2015. “All Our Love 2” at the gcs clothing store and art gallery. DEITY blessed this wall with her latest creation. We are pleased to bring her out to the DTSA area and we always love to show her work on our gallery walls. She’ll have some new art pieces up all month in our gallery.
By nature, street art is meant to be temporary. Never lasting too long, if spotted, it should be appreciated, photographed, and remembered. Because the length of it’s existence is always unknown. With that said, we bid a fond farewell to this piece by the artist 3rdi. Painted for his NOV 1st 2014 solo art show at the new GCS Santa Ana entitled “Return to tell the Tale”, this piece has been enjoyed by countless passers-by, urban campers, midnight alley thugs and 4th street shoppers alike.Don’t be too upset, the wonderful DEITY is painting a new masterpiece that will be finished for the FEB 7th art walk …. We know that wall will continue to be straight fire!
Love is in the air as GCS Clothing Store and Art Gallery gets ready for the second installment of “All Our Love” art show. And with a roster of artists like this, whats not to love. We hope that you and your loved ones can join us for ART WALK DTSA feb 7th, 2015. As always, the art show is free and all ages. Music, refreshments and artists will be on hand for the nights festivities. Event starts at 7pm and goes until 11pm. For those that cannot make it out that night, the art will hang for the rest of the month.
