weekend marked the opening of the Pre-Vinylite Society's hand-painted
sign art exhibit in the Extension Gallery above Orchard Skate Shop in
Allston. And if you're familiar with the gallery's previous shows, you know they're good for some pretty amazing feats of art-ness.
The Pre-Vinylite group show, up now through December 9, showcases some
seriously rad signs and truly masterful hand-lettering. In conjunction
with this display of DIY fervor, the dudes at Orchard and Pre-Vinylite
are are hosting a sign-painting demo this Saturday, November 19. From
2 - 5pm, two of the artists featured in the show -- Josh Luke and Kenji
Nakayama -- will be sharing their knowledge of sign-making techniques.
They'll cover everything from basic letter strokes and pattern making to
pinstripe and gold leaf, welcoming interested folks of all ages and
skill levels. BE THERE.
