Opening Reception: Saturday, July 27 from 7pm to 11pm

Key Dates:
7/27 – Opening Reception @ HITS (FB Event)
8/10 – Closing Reception + Artist Talk @ Homme Gallery

ThunderShark is the first ever solo showing of artworks by longtime HITS studio organizer Mike O. (aka RedTablePress)

The show will feature watercolor + acrylic works inspired by traditional American tattoo flash design—painted on wood panel, contour cut, and coated in resin. The pieces will be totally badass and completely indestructible.

As a special bonus, the show will feature embroidery from Rachel Wallach—delicate and beautiful complements to Mike’s more durable works.

This collection will be on display for one night (7/27) at HOLE IN THE SKY DC then up for ongoing display at Homme Gallery starting 7/30 with a closing reception + artist talk on 8/10.

They’re asking for $5-$10 donations at the door to help these galleries continue supporting local artists like Mike + Rachel.

SPECIAL NOTE: At the opening reception, the Craft Tea Guy (aka the OTHER Mike O’Brien) will be serving a bespoke Mike O. Psycho Nitro cold brew tea alongside presentations of his loose leaf tins + sniffables. Butter Bakery has developed a selection of baked goods inspired by the show.

Hole in the Sky DC is located at 2110 5th Street NE #2. (Enter thru the alley between V st. & W st.)
