From the streets to the studio, there are few contemporary artists who've maintained their underground roots while achieving the lifetime goal of becoming successful. Where Now Comes From is a look at six tattoo, graffiti and sub-culture artists who have gone from their misunderstood roots to carrying their artistry over to a full-time gig. Without a doubt, an ode to how excepting and diverse our modern art world has become.

Philadelphia locals David Cheplivouza (Art Machine Productions), Josh Ruggeri, Joey Knuckles (Art Machine Productions), Mark Price (Space1026), Steve Martin (Norristown Tattoo) and Terry Ribera (Remington Tattoos) have all been invited to showcase a retrospective of their highly coveted works of art that are responsible for earning them their real-world success. The spirit of each of their pieces calls upon their early years as young, fledgling artisans of their craft.

Dock Street Brewery will be providing delicious beverages for the evening.

Opening Reception: Friday, March 8th
FrameWorks Studio & Gallery
2103 Walnut St.
6 - 9 PM, Free & Open to the Public
