11:11 A CREATIVE COLLECTIVE BRINGS TRAVELLING GALLERY TO RESEDA
VALLEY SKATE CULTURE EXHIBIT OPENS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 7TH
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The 11:11 ACC Traveling Gallery moves to Reseda.
Grand opening with exhibit highlighting the San Fernando Valley Skateboard Culture
Saturday, February 7th, 2015
Reseda, CA – February 7th, 2015 - 11:11 A Creative Collective, the leading San Fernando Valley Arts organization moves into new location and continues the streak of professionally curated, boundary pushing visual arts exhibits at their new Traveling Gallery at 18343 Sherman Way in Reseda, Ca. The new location’s grand opening exhibit, scheduled for February 7th from 7-11 pm, features over 100 local artists who have created artwork inspired by the San Fernando Valley skateboard culture and artwork on skate decks. This collaboration show between 11:11 ACC and skate apparel company, Val Jerks – based out of Canoga Park, is supported by the Reseda Renaissance, an arts activism group and sponsored by 818 Brewing, Canoga Park, who will be providing their most popular 4 styles of craft beer brews- proceeds benefitting 11:11 ACC.
‘Gracias Por Nada – The SFV skate Culture’ will feature over 200 pieces of artwork including painted skateboards, sculptures highlighting the valley’s best skateboard spots, and artwork for and by participants in the skateboard culture. With participation by many of the valley’s best tattoo artists, professional skateboarders, and some of SFV’s top emerging artists, ‘Gracias Por Nada’ is a reaction to the fact that the Valley skate scene never quite got the attention that our over-the-hill counter parts have. To them we say, “Thanks for nothing!”
The Valley has a rich, extensive skateboard history. Though not as recognized as the Santa Monica, Venice or Hermosa Beach scenes, the valley has created it’s own close-knit and vibrant skate culture. So much so that for decades teens have flooded, boards in hand to the suburbs’ schools and strip malls, internationally popular video games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater featured multiple valley locations where players could choose to skate and the cult classic film ‘Thrashin’ had rival skate gangs fighting over love and notoriety. The famous line, said by a Venice Beach skater to a rival Valley skater, “Beat it, you Val Jerk!”
100% of the proceeds of this event will benefit the creation of the first San Fernando Valley skateboarding non profit organization serving at risk youth and 11:11 ACC’s public art and mural efforts.
About 11:11 ACC:
11:11 A Creative Collective’s vision is to help the San Fernando Valley become a strong and independent artistic community that will develop as a thriving and accessible destination for those seeking an innovative and unique culturally enriching experience.
11:11 A Creative Collective believes that the Valley not only needs an artistic hub, but also has great potential to become a strong creative community that actively engages its nearly 2 million residents. The organization is committed to recognizing and celebrating artists of all backgrounds and experience who produce exceptional and innovative work. Within this mission, 11:11 ACC has created dozens of art events and programs throughout the San Fernando Valley including the annual Canoga Park Art Walk, as well as the facilitation of over half a dozen murals and public art projects in 2014 alone.
Traveling Gallery, Reseda:
Reseda has its very first Traveling Gallery featuring established and emerging artists from all regions of the San Fernando Valley and beyond. Presented by the burgeoning Art Collective, 11:11 ACC, the traveling gallery features an exclusive selection of art retail as well as expertly curated art installations and exhibits. The Reseda traveling gallery has become an alternative art space and venue which hosts regular music events and concerts, open mic and poetry readings, workshops, classes and sketch drawing events as well as a local hub for artists and art lovers to convene, collaborate and create. Regular business hours are Friday & Saturday 1-9pm and Sunday 1-7pm with extended hours for special events. Please see the online Calendar of events for more information.
