DKE Toys and adFunture present

The Custom Yoka Show

@ Black Maria Gallery

Opening Reception

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

7:00 - 10:30pm

Premiere gallery exhibition

February 18 - March 2, 2010

adFunture provided their 3" blank Yoka panda bear vinyl figures and DKE Toys co-founders Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks found over 200 artists to participate in the Custom Yoka Show. Featuring work from 20 countries the show turns the quirky little panda into everything from a dirty thug to a sweet snail in this tremendous exhibition.

My man Randy Martinez & I are VERY excited about being a part of this project! Randy created the Custom Yoka "Laker Bear" & I created the Custom beaded Glowing Love Yoka (Yes she glows in the dark)

Black Maria Gallery:
Dedicated to non-mainstream art, Black Maria focuses on works that reverberate with the shock of the new - not in a gratuitous sense, but in a way that initiates wonderment and self-reflection. The people behind Black Maria Gallery believe that thought-provoking art, whether it's termed low-brow, avant garde, underground or subversive, has a hugely important place in civic and social discourse, especially in these times. Black Maria strives to become an organic bridge between local artists and the public, by presenting art that's approachable and affordable in equal measure. The goal is to reach out to local artists and to help make gallery-going a revelatory and rewarding experience.
