Press release

The Gallery at Black Rock is proud to present Off the Grid a show featuring local graffiti and street artists. In keeping with The Gallery at Black Rock's mission to bring art to everyone in Bridgeport we have decided to produce a show that celebrates Street artists. Like it or not, street artists are here amongst us and have survived and flourished in the withering economy.

Bridgeport has long had a street art culture under the radar of many. There are talented artists who prefer to share the work they do for free most of the time. The gallery is working with local artists to give a voice to these artists in a more appreciative environment, and to provide options for them to show work.

The shows will be hung in a visual assault style and will seek to speak to the environment that these artists often work in.

Off the Grid will feature the work of Equip, Sketch, Greg Brown, and Snook among others. Special thanks for curation assistance goes to Keith Rodgerson and Liz Squillace.

The show's opening is Fri., Oct. 16, with an artist reception from 6—9 p.m. The show runs through Nov. 19.
