Get A Grip 3 and On Deck

I've been getting my art groove on again lately, and recently submitted some hand-painted skate decks to a couple of upstate art shows - Get A Grip 3 in Rochester, and On Deck here in Saratoga which was curated by my wife Belinda Colón and featured more than 70 artists. This kind of show has been happening more and more frequently in upstate New York, where there is an increasing need for decent skateparks despite an overall lack of funding to create them.

Both shows were geared towards raising money for creating and/or improving local skateparks and had great turnouts and fundraising results. On Deck continues as an online auction until March 23rd here, so take a look and bid on your favorite deck!

This is the crowd from the opening night of On Deck. It was an amazing turnout!
