Leica Gallery Boston presents “Rolling Through the Shadows,” a Unique Exhibit by Iconic Skateboarders and Artists

Leica Gallery Boston presents “Rolling Through the Shadows,” a Unique Exhibit by Iconic Skateboarders and Artists

An exemplary collection of photography features works by 14 of the most influential names in the skateboarding community for a limited engagement

Leica Gallery Boston is proud to present “Rolling Through the Shadows,” a collaborative exhibition consisting of fourteen icons of the skateboarding community brought together in this unique exhibit.

This collaboration is historically brought together by their mutual passion for Leica photography.  “Rolling Through the Shadows,’ premiered at Leica Gallery Los Angeles in 2016 and a selection from this successful show will debut in New England at Leica Gallery Boston.

The skateboarding artists presenting their work at the exhibit are: Anthony Acosta, Arto Saari, Atiba Jefferson, Dennis McGrath, Ed Templeton, Fred Mortagne, Grant Brittain, Greg Hunt, Jerry Hsu, Joe Brook, Jon Humphries, Ray Barbee, Thomas Campbell, and Tobin Yelland. 

For these individuals and many like them, skateboarding is more than defying gravity or a show of sportsmanship; it is a lifestyle and a primary form of expressive communication.  This discipline has a strong connection to the urban environments where it is practiced and the buildings, sidewalks, streets and alleys become witness of the squeaky boards and worn out bushings. These artists have physically rolled through the shadows of these city-made structures, turning their art into the voices of neighborhoods and parks.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Rolling Through The Shadows” will be on view from June 29 until August 27, 2017 at Leica Gallery Boston, with an Opening Reception June 296-9PM and Artist Talk July 1st2-4PM.
