20th Anniversary Extravaganza at Hope Gallery!! September 1, 2023 13:10

In the late summer of 2003, Eric Merril, Julio Rodriguez, and I opened Hope Gallery, in down town New Haven. In the first year, we invited Tim Harris to join us, and shortly after that, Phil Young.
We had 6 great years in that location, on Chapel street. But I felt the need to get out of the downtown area, and do something a bit different.
This year marks Hope Galleries 20th year of business. The core group of artists has remained the same, minus Julio who went on to Open “Tattoolios” in Wallingford CT. Since than we’ve been blessed with artists, Christian Perez, Shane Baker, Adam Harmon, and Joe Santiago.
So I’d like to invite you all to help celebrate our 20 years of doing tattoos, art, and other unique events at the studio. We’ll be hosting a party, featuring art from all the fellers. As well as work from guests we’ve hosted over the years.
We’ll also have special features from down towns amazing cocktail bar, Ordinary. As well as CTs New England Brewing co. Bears Smokehouse will have their fantastic bbq food truck.
There will be limited t-shirts, stickers, prints, and, more for sale and giveaway. Raffles and all other sorts of stuff.
Hope to see you at Hope, Saturday October 7th at 3pm!
Joe Capobianco.
