RECAP | Snowboard Art Show 2023

Posted by on

More than 60 boards, our new beer selection and a Full House

Andy Ford

Boardworks was packed to the brim with patrons filtering through to examine the new art this year by about 60+ artists on Saturday, Nov. 4. By 7:30 p.m.. Laughter and conversation filled the shop. Walking around became a challenge itself with over 70 patrons flooding the space at nearly any given time. 

Artists were using the canvases of broken snowboards to come up with new graphic designs, make 3-D art, or go completely against the norm and chop it up or build structures around the board itself. Either way, this creative way of saving broken, un-ride-able boards from a landfill inspired a ton of unique art with a variety of mediums.  

Participating artists were able to choose whether to sell, auction or keep their boards at the show. Artists kept 100% of the funds they made on their sales with Boardworks taking zero commission fees. Danielle Davis and Kyle Loerzel were gracious enough to donate their entire sales revenue to our shop, thank you Danielle Davis and Kyle!

A handful of different waves came through the night and our new license to sell beer and snacks allowed us to foster a more hospitable environment for the artists and visitors. Bailey Lupo and Morgan were our outsourced snack bar slingers for the night and their charm undoubtedly contributed to our patrons repeatedly coming back for more libations. 

Johnny, Nate, and the crew worked tirelessly the night before and day-of to turn the shop into an art gallery. We hung displays and tucked merchandise away to every nook and cranny to open up the space.  DJ Kraymer G Dot set up around 9:30 p.m. and cranked some tunes to kick start the after-party. He's a true expert-in-the-field of mixing and matching tracks and he got the crowd psyched. We have to thank every one of the artists for making the art show a hit. 

Without you all, the art show couldn’t exist, so thank you! 

Enjoy the photo gallery of all of the boards and festivities below.

A couple attendees open Johnny Lupo's piece, "The Last Stripper," which is framed by a curtained light box. It soon became a fan favorite due to the absurdity and reveal factor.

Johnny Lupo's, "The Last Stipper," is a play-on of "The Last Supper"

Beer was on the menu, a first for Boardworks in its 9 year history.

Keep in mind the blog software is quite rudimentary or rather difficult to use and changes in image size are a characteristic of the program, not our preferential treatment of other pieces over others
