Pics of kicks and flips
Joel Lipovetsky, New Mexico filmmaker and photographer of skateboarding, snowboarding, and skiing, has collected some of his finest works in Knock on Wood: The Stances and Dances of Joel
Lipovetsky. This exhibit showcases Lipovetsky’s renowned photographs and films, and during the reception, which begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 25, you can enjoy the musical talents of DJ Rene on the back patio of Downtown Subscription. Skateboarders will be doing their thing in the parking lot, and you can purchase custom skateboards featuring Lipovetsky’s images.
These events take place at Photo-Eye Bookstore and Downtown Subscription, 370 and 376 Garcia St. (Lipovetsky’s images hang in both locations). Bring your board to either spot, and check out the afterparty at The Matador (116 W. San Francisco St., 984-5050) with DJ Safiyah.
Knock on Wood continues through July. For more information, contact Photo-Eye at 988-5152.
