About the event

Tattoo Artists Get Wild for Confluence Gallery’sNext Show Board to be Wild plus Exhibit Trash Talk from Joanne Bohannon.

Opening Reception Saturday, April 20 , 5-7pm

BOARD TO BE WILD:

A show featuring paintings by tattoo artists on decommissioned snowboards will open

April 20, with a lively and colorful launch party from 5-7 pm, at Confluence Gallery and

Art Center in Twisp, Washington.

“Board to Be Wild” will feature collector-quality artwork of many regional tattoo artists

who also create fine art for gallery shows, plus that of several local painters, sculptors

and jewelry makers.

A portion of sales from the show will benefit Salvage Arts Foundation (besalvage.com),

an Edmonds, WA.-based nonprofit that promotes the recycled art movement by creating

unique, high-quality art pieces using salvaged and repurposed materials.

Bruce Rivera, the founder and president of Salvage Arts, is curating the show in

partnership with Penelope Varn, a curator for Confluence Gallery. Rivera is a tattoo

artist at Slave to the Needle in Seattle and a resident fine artist at Graphite Arts Center

in Edmonds.

Especially fitting is that this show, which will use old snowboards otherwise bound for a

landfill, will open on Earth Day weekend. The opening reception on April 20 from 5 to 7

PM will be open to the public.

Curator: Penelope Varn

TRASH TALK:

“My current body of work came about when an owl set up

shop outside my bedroom window…obviously a city dweller.

It has been so surprising to me that such an icon of the

health of the earth has managed to survive amongst all of

this asphalt and noise. Its tenacity and perseverance gives

me hope for the future and it is all evident right here in my

backyard. This amazing bird has been living with me for well

over 10 years. I am grateful.”

It is Fitting that this show occurs with Board to be Wild and both

will be going on when our annual Trashion Show occurs in early

May, exhibiting The Confluence’s commitment to both the arts

and conservation.
