During the five-month Ink and Earth Project, local illustrator and tattoo artist David Hale and his family dedicated one week of each month to tent camping and getting off the grid. Hale created 10 tattoos and one large-scale drawing at each destination: four Southeastern parks and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. The final body of work will be presented at this one-night pop-up gallery show, consisting of original illustrations mounted to panel and limited edition screen prints depicting a deep reverence for the natural world. Claire Campbell of Hope for Agoldensummer will provide live music, and a percentage of event proceeds will benefit Nuçi’s Space and Conscious Alliance.
