4/ Bingo Deli & Pub
Jason Rockhill hand drew his first flyer in 1993 in Vero Beach, FL for his crappy teenage cover band with a sharpie on a sheet of copy paper. So began a life long obsession with the disposable promotional material of rock and punk shows. Believing that flyers are generally destined to be trash, Rockhill used this freedom to explore and play with type and graphics. As long as he was managing to communicate the whole who, when and where advertising part he could get away with almost anything… bad color schemes, messy type and a ton of halftone images. Rockhill plans to present around 200 flyers and posters from his 30 years of work.
619 S Main St Unit 1A

His art resonates with both sensitive insight and playful wit, capturing pop culture on flat-planed canvases. From President Carter to Amy Winehouse and Batman, Slim’s creations are a fusion of diverse influences.
Panhandle Slim’s work is a testament to his ethos of crafting “ART for FOLK.”

Vibe Inherent: Abstract Works by Brian Wilson.
Brian is an abstract/energy artist who mainly works with acrylic paints/inks (on canvas) and includes charged crystal/gemstone powders for the protective and healing properties they offer. His paintings rarely reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted, and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, he invites his audience to consider his vision of eclectic, eccentric, forward thinking and apply it to themselves on a spiritual level. Brian currently lives and works in Gainesville.
ArtWalk & Artist Reception with Live Music.

Kyle Keller “Telling Stories through Film & Song”
Through film photography Kyle cultivates a deep appreciation for the natural world by presenting singular views of Americana. He encourages the viewer to share in his love of the beauty he captures through an analog medium and vintage cameras that offer unique perspectives on his subject matter. Kyle will be singing songs that echo some of these same sentiments, as he tells compelling and thought provoking stories.

A MULTI-MEDIA ART SPACE AND CAFE.
In anticipation of this coming or a future Artwalk Gainesville, the SL8 Gallery is suggesting an inter-gallery art swap, with the idea that visiting patrons can be challenged to identify the art that has originated from another gallery; e.g. an SL8 piece in the GFAA, or vice versa or Artisan's Guild or Black C, or Hippodrome, etc.
In any event, please feel free to stop by the SL8, which has an ever changing offering of art, film, food, and liquids to refresh your bodies and souls. Meantime, feast your eyes on this beauty of Downtown Gainesville and the Hipp, by Blake Harrison.

Kate Davis // Colorful Creature Shop
"Kate Davis is a Biology PhD student at UF and part-time artist. Her art is inspired by the natural world and the textures and depth that can be found there. Her first piece in this style she has deemed “Stratum” (Latin for“layers”) was a pangolin that looks like a cross between an anteater & pinecone.
Kate uses art to de-stress & says it’s the only thing that can turn her brain off. Each piece is made with acrylic paint and cardboard chipboard, some pieces also include scrapbook paper."
