Tenore milled about outside the gallery during the opening reception of his exhibition “Exit Through The Surf Shop,” which he curated with Casey Zolton of Known Gallery in Los Angeles.
“’Exit Through The Surf Shop’ is a great forum for all these different people in the community to come together,” Tenore told SES in-between greeting friends. “It’s very authentic and people can have a good time, check out some artwork, have some conversations. Some of these people I haven’t seen for 10 years, so it’s good to connect with everyone.”
The exhibition, which runs through Aug. 6, is located at Ancillary Studios in Costa Mesa, which was previously occupied by a Sears Auto Center.
Work on display include photos by Estevan Oriol, a lowrider ice cream truck by Mister Cartoon, work by Retna (née Marquis Lewis) decorating the flooring of a boxing ring and MMA cage. Elsewhere, show flyers were posted throughout the space depicting tombstones in the water with the logos for RVCA, Billabong, DC, Hurley, Quiksilver, Roxy, Volcom, and Body Glove and the words “That’s All Folks.” Standing spray floral arrangements, similar to those used for funerals, included one that read “End of An Era by PM Tenore.”
