Paramount Center for the Arts – Peekskill, NY
“Megadeck,” showcases a wide variety of work by 21 young, emerging artists from the Peekskill area.   The exhibit features the artists’ visions of urban life and includes sculpture, paintings, photographs and thematic installation.  Each artist has one representative piece of their work in the show with a unique skateboard deck mounted beside it, creating a unifying relationship between the exhibiting artists.  The individual skateboard decks, created specifically for this show explore the artists point of view on opulence, the disenfranchised, progress, poverty, the contrast between constant development and the dwindling natural world, and how these ideas penetrate broader society in the formats of graffiti, punk rock, tattoos, skateboarding and other forms of self-expression.  The show was curated by Geoff Feder, a Peekskill sculptor.
