Hella Slingshots by Adam Gray / March 2014

POSTED BY: KEHAU LYONS

We are charmed (as we think you will be) by the work of Adam Gray, our upcoming gallery artist. His ridiculously wonderful project, Hella Slingshots, runs from March 2 to March 28, 2014. Please join us for our opening reception on March 7, 2014 from 6-8pm.

Adam writes in his own words:
Of all the things that bring us sheer childlike joy—the pogo stick, the scooter, the remote control car—the slingshot is tops. Stuffed in a back pocket and taken for a hike, it leads to endless amusement and mischief. I fell back in love with slingshots after one of my friends started bringing his on camping and bicycle tours. To kill time we'd shoot cans, bodies of water, and off high places. Being a crafty sort of person I thought I might try making a few unique slingshots for myself. I got a little carried away (as I often do) and well you can see now I make a ton of wooden slingshots... or if you speak West Coast "Hella Slingshots."
