Opening February 5, the Berkeley Arts Council will showcase the designs and artwork of more than 10 local tattoo artists with shops in historic downtown Martinsburg. The exhibit called “Tattoo and Beyond”, will feature tattoo designs as well as work in other media by several local artists. Tattoo art has enjoyed increased popularity over the past several years.
The exhibit will include artwork by owners and artists from these seven parlors:
- Ambition and Ink
- Black Pearl Tattoo Studio
- Boomtown Tattoo
- Burke Street Tattoo and Gallery
- Cherry Bomb Tattoo & Body Piercing
- Drawin’ Attention tattoos
- True Love Tattoo
The idea for the exhibit came about with the help of the Martinsburg city Department of Economic Development as a way to feature the talent of these local artists and business people.
The show will run from February 5 through 29, 2020, at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street, Martinsburg. Show off your “Ink” at the opening reception on Sunday, February 9 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Also in conjunction with the show, join us at the Art Works on Friday, February 21 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm to hear participating artists discuss their work.
The Berkeley Art Works is open every Wednesday through Friday, 11am – 5pm, and Saturdays 11am – 4pm.
