Vertical Gallery Presents “Deck the Halls” Skateboard Deck Show A massive skate deck show for the holidays opening November 16 with 20% of proceeds to Chicago-based non-profit The Simple Good. Chicago, IL – October 30, 2013 – Vertical Gallery is proud to present Deck the Halls, a group art show with all work on skateboard decks. The show will feature 50 local, national and international artists and the gallery will have over 80 skate decks available for sale. And what they plan as an annual tradition, 20% of all proceeds will be donated to Chicago-based non-profit The Simple Good. “We have received a very positive response to our gallery since we opened in April”, said Patrick Hull, owner of Vertical Gallery. “This show allows us to work with a great number of talented artists, and provides the perfect opportunity to support a local non-profit.” Vertical Gallery approached Uprise Skate Shop to help in selecting local artists to participate, and the gallery reached out to other national and international artists. The show will also be an off-the-wall show, meaning that customers may take the deck with them when they make the purchase instead of waiting until the show ends. The show will feature Stormie Mills, Jim Houser, Cope 2, Greg Gossel, Ben Frost, My Dog Sighs, Philip Lumbang, Denial, Simon WG Butler, Jason Bryant, Max Kauffman, Dave Pressler, Nice One, Lucx, Grant William Thye, Jourdon Gullett, Mike Ruta, Jimmy Bunnyluv, Steve Seeley, Left Handed Wave, Forsaken, Sentrock, Julie Murphy, Erik Lundquist, Adam DeVarney, Helena Ecija Martinez, JC Rivera, Tmoney, Marcelo Eli, Czr Prz, Robert Donis (Poor Kid), E LEE, Jake Castro, Dusty Rabjohn, !CHONGO!, Nate Otto, Juan Chavez, Nicholaus Jamieson, Paul Stacey, Adam Lundquist, Nick Fury, Charlie Megna, yoki, Priya Shah, Saro, Courtney Howell, Dont Fret, Revise, David Soukup, Uriel Correa, Yams, Ben Giska, and Peter Kepha.
