Art & Sole

25 artists came together in Calgary 2 weeks ago to help raise funds for the Urban Youth Worx project. The event was hosted by The Gallery on 17th Ave and brought Calgary's hippest crowd together. Local favorites, such as David Brunning, Tele Ascenio and others were among the crowd showing off their designs. Aaron Ellard, owner of The Streetlife and Styles Gallery has been meaning to do a show of this kind for a long time and the decision to donate the funds to the Urban Youth Worx was a conscious decision "They are a good fit for an event like Art & Sole, they're an organization that gets youth involved in the community and one of the ways they do that is painting murals around Calgary and doing traffic signs for school zones and such." The event was a success and the shoes are now on display for the rest of the month and the beginning of the new year. The different shoes are being auctioned and are going at a rapid pace. If you're still on the hunt for that one of a kind present for a friend or a loved one, check out the one of a kind kicks @ The Gallery (113-1013 17 Ave SW).
