Nov 3rd, 2012. The November art walk was always one of the biggest art walks of the year. Coinciding with the “Noche De Altares” event on 4th st., it was a perfect choice to launch our day of the dead themed art show. GCS always enjoyed the challenge of curating a themed group art show. And this one was one of our favorites. We took a break from the theme this last november but look out for “Bringing Out The Dead” art show to return in ’15.
Thanks to Jason from To Die For, GCS Santa Ana just received a shipment of Dan Smith’s new art book “With the Light of Truth”. This well printed book is a must have for anyone that collects art books or loves the medium of tattoo art. Withthelightoftruth.tumblr.com describes this book as “a collection of straight edge related tattoos and art and profiles some of the best tattoo artists in the world”. Published by Memento Publishing, this hard cover book contains 248 full color pages with a few blank pages at the end to get those ever so valuable autographs. Dan Smith could have signed it when he was here at our gallery for Tim Shelton’s “Everything Went Black” art show Nov 5th, 2011.
