Prohibition Gallery is honored to present, Participating Perception, by Los Angeles-based artist, Angie Jones. This new collection of works will be her first solo show at Prohibition Gallery and will feature her oil paintings on canvas. The opening reception of Participating Perception will be held at the Prohibition Gallery on August 16, 2014 from 6-9pm.
The exhibition will be on view through September 6th, 2014 and is free and open to the public. The faces of Participating Perception require your presence. The work begins not in the digital and not in the physical, but in the mix that our minds make of the two. The abstracted paintings mirror an 8-bit, computer generated counter culture. “Peak shift” palettes and a portrayal of persona through paint is inspired by Jones’ 20 year career as an artist working in Visual Effects, Video Games and Animation. Maintaining one foot in the past and another in the future Jones uses digital manipulation, 17th century oil painting techniques, sacred geometry, computer glitch and complex color theories. Participating Perception is a deconstructed, neo-geo perspective defined by creating something new, from something old and making it new again.
The Skull Show
Lesher Center for the Arts • 1601 Civic Dr. Walnut Creek, CA 94596
Opening June 12th
June 12th – August 31st, 2014
The Bay Area’s own Bedford Gallery in the pleasant town of Walnut Creek has a Skull Show on view that brings together many interpretations of this ubiquitous symbol of life and death.
Join us Thursday June 12th for the public opening of The Skull Show. Wine and hors d’oeuvres hosted by the Bedford Gallery Guild and Diablo Regional Arts Association (DRAA).
This summer the Bedford Gallery presents The Skull Show, an exhibition featuring nearly 100 artists who have all created work depicting the human skull. This show contains both historic and contemporary pieces from local, national, and international artists.
The Skull Show is an exploration of the role that skulls have played throughout history, used for centuries as a powerful symbol representing life and death, and often seen in art as memento mori, religious icons, and in vanitas themes. This exhibition highlights the skull as an iconic image in the contemporary arts, by examining its prominent place in counter cultures such as skate, surf, tattoo, and urban graffiti projects
The reception is open to the public and on view until May 2nd, 2014.

The underground skating scene has made its way to the surface as scintillating skate decks fill the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at CSUSB.
“Full Deck: A Short History of Skate Art” is a traveling exhibition that features beautiful artwork on an unorthodox canvas: skateboard decks. The exhibition also presents the fascinating history of skate art from the 1960s to present day.
“The skate artist’s aesthetic— raw, passionate and personal— is energized by a devotion to the act of skating and a DIY embrace of the skate culture,” said Carrie Lederer, curator of the exhibition.

American Series 2011 | Warner Gallery
organized by Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, California
October 1, 2011 – January 8, 2012
Opening Reception|Friday, October 7, 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Skate Day! | Sunday, October 16 | Noon – 4:00 p.m.
Featuring demonstrations by Don Pendleton, skater and graphic designer for the skateboarding industry
The SBMA’s 2011 American Series exhibition delves into contemporary American youth culture in a very real way, presenting an anthology of skate art from the 1960’s to the present. Over 300 skateboard decks borrowed from artists, skaters, and companies from across the country will be on display, along with dozens of photographs, other original artwork, videos, and related skate culture paraphernalia.
Full Deck was organized and curated by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions and Programs at the Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, California and is traveling to museums, galleries and universities across North America.
Ms. Lederer states:
The multi-media skate art community fosters a highly unique blend of, painting, photography, video, music, stickers, magazines, and clothing – the ever-growing creative by-products stemming from this popular sport and alternative mode of transportation. The eye-catching images on the bottom of these skateboards are one of the purest forms of self-expression: highly personal and mostly created without artistic boundaries – just like skateboarding itself.
The skate artist’s aesthetic — raw, passionate, and personal — is energized by a devotion to the act of skating and a DIY embrace of skate culture … Since the first graphic was drawn onto a board, the culture of skateboarding has grown hand-in-hand with visual arts movements such as the Mission School, Pop Art, and graffiti. The skate culture’s embrace of individual style, approach, and intention is what continues to draw new skaters to this renegade art practice — a hybrid in a realm of its own. And like the inclusive surf community, skaters and skate artists span several generations.
The exhibition includes elegant one-of-a-kind hand-stained decks by Skip Engblom, co-founder of Zepher Skate Shop and profiled in the Hollywood film Lords of Dogtown. A collection of early boards, circa 1960, are on loan from pro skater Sam Cunningham, as well as a broad range of now rare commercial decks (Element, enjoi, Krooked, etc.) from the collection of Mark Whiteley, Editor of SLAP magazine in San Francisco. Jason Strubing, owner of Skateworks in Santa Cruz, also contributed a large selection of significant and historic decks from his collection. Metro Skate (Pleasant Hill), StreetCorner Skate (San Francisco), and Thrasher magazine (San Francisco) also loaned skate art to Full Deck. Nationally known pro skater Corey Duffel contributed selections from his private collection. A selection of skate photography by Bryce Kanights, Tobin Yelland and others will also be on view.

The skateboards and a variety of photographs, art, and other memorabilia are on loan from some of the West Coast’s top skateboard designers, distributors, photographers, and professional skaters.

Each year Downtown Dog Rescue assists in rescuing over 300 dogs, mostly American Pit bull Terriers and other Power Breeds that often die in the shelters mostly due to unresolved behavioral issues. Each dog we rescue is socialized with other dogs, evaluated for aggression, sterilized, vaccinated and micro-chipped before the dog is adopted out.
We administer innovative programs in various communities in Los Angeles to promote responsible pet ownership, empower individuals to become pet welfare advocates and provide opportunities for compassionate dog lovers (friends, volunteers, and donors) to make a difference in the lives of people and downtown dogs.
