I am proud to present the first project of the new year as artLedge (with Caleb Lyons).
David Artledge is pleased to present artLedge
The Sun carries a torch of tightly rolled bark to light the world. After his daily journey across the sky, he snaps his torch to throw sparks which are the stars. artLedge gazes upon a future it conceived in the past.
Hosted by Roots and Culture for ROOTS.
Opens this Friday, 2/12, 6-9pm with a Reggae Brunch 2/28 11am-2pm.
