CHALK, an art gallery and design studio in Mar Vista, will hold an opening reception for Escape Artists, a show featuring works by surf, tattoo and graffiti artists from Southern California and Florida.

The event is scheduled from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12 at CHALK, 12513 Venice Blvd., Mar Vista.

In partnership with ESCAPE Campervans, the gallery will showcase artworks by Drew Brophy, Cre8, Jim Darling, Mark Longenecker, Haste, DJ Neff, Mark7, HEX, Siner, Justin Mitchell, and CANLOVE.

Each of the artists lend their skills to customizing the exterior of the vans as well as work commercially in their given trade.

This show was created to spotlight their more personal works on canvas, surfboards and other mediums. CANLOVE, a recycling program for graffiti art, will also be present with its own works created from the discarded spray cans donated from places like ESCAPE.

The reception will include food, beverages, live collaborative Escape van painting by the artists, and selected Escape vans on display.

There will also be music performances from Mark7 and Aquaries, with a video music set by DJ Skitz.
