schewing traditional canvasses, the latest group exhibition at independent Cardiff gallery The SHO – in collaboration with Cardiff Skateboard Club – instead showcases movieinspired art on recycled skateboard decks, featuring work from over 35 local and national contributing artists. Properly gnarly it is, too. “The interest and enthusiasm we’ve had around the exhibition is pretty overwhelming,” says The SHO co-owner, Emily Michael. “We’ve been blown away by how many exceptionally talented artists are exhibiting with us. “The diverse collection varies from painted designs to highly-detailed laser-cut pieces by artists including Jon Horner, Ed Syder, Phil Hackett, Mark Gubb, Bruce Parker, and many others.” Sounds ‘flipping’ great – ‘wheel’ see you there... Treading The Boards is on until 12 September at The SHO, Castle Emporium, Womanby Street, Cardiff. For more, see thesho.co.uk
