The Beantown Sundown was a wonderful art and skate filled night at Orchard Skateshop in Boston.
Upstairs, three rooms were filled with alters, fine art and found items by Element Advocate and artist Mike Kershnar. Included were copies of Kershnar’s latest ‘zine, which contains a short story inspired by Boston’s history and skate scene. Click below to download the ‘zine.
Downstairs, Donny Barley, PJ Ladd and Levi Brown signed autographs for visitors and guests.
Vibes were high in the Orchard gallery and everyone was stoked to have Donny Barley, PJ Ladd, Levi Brown, and Panama Dan on hand. Peep the ‘zine, and get out there and get creative in the streets.

Julian Davidson and Nick Garcia came up with this special set of Travel Well cruiser boards, called “Day Trippin’”. Designing them was one thing, but what came next was the fun part; hitting the streets. Nick and Julian headed off to Skate Camp, and took the long road to get there. From bombing hills and crushing rocks to flatground and mini ramps, these boards are truly all terrain vehicles.

Element Advocate and artist Mike Kershnar currently has an amazing art show running at the RVCA gallery in San Francisco, CA entitled “Slam Dance” running through February 4th.
The brief on the show reads:
Slam Dance culminates the last two years of his art practice in the city. The show aims to beautifully reflect the various active components of the universe that combine to create mystery in our lives. Influenced by ritualized shamanic art practices, graffiti, and the spiritual path, Slam Dance seeks to stimulate the creative spirit within people in the gallery space to ripple outward into the larger world. The Slam Dance is the distilled force that comes from synthesizing the ancient and the modern psyches and the urban and natural landscapes.
Check it out if you are in the area, otherwise take the tour with grand opening video, zine download and photos.
