Hang Outs... Maryland, USA

"Don't Get Caught"
Charlie Owens Solo Show

The event is FREE and open to the public
Saturday, May 14th, from 8pm – Midnight

Show end date: June 14th

With the underlying theme of create and destroy (an obvious bite on the 80's "skate and destroy" sticker slogan) being an ongoing theme in the work of Charlie Owens. The show title itself "Don't Get Caught" is a throwback to those youthful days when he was first introduced to the world of skateboarding and the visual art that went along with it. The work in this show is a progression of his own unique style, inspired by the skate and street art culture that has influenced him and has carried through in his life to present day. However, do not expect this to be another skateboard show, there is no actual original art on skateboards to be seen here. The show features several very large scale installation pieces layered with texture resembling weathered art found on outdoor canvases and a variety of smaller works from multiple techniques, all adorned with his iconic and highly recognizable female forms.
