Here's something to do tonight...
By The Quail Bell Crew
Mellow Gold, a collection of art by Tim Skirven will be released by Richmond, Virginia publisher Sink/Swim Press TONIGHT at Quirk Gallery.
Skirven is a Richmond, Virginia based artist and graphic designer. He obtained a BFA in graphic design from James Madison University in 2008 and spent the following few years bouncing between touring with bands and pursuing art. After brief spells in Harrisonburg and Virginia Beach, Skirven landed in Richmond summer of 2011. He's shown work locally at Chop Suey Books, 821 Cafe, Studio 23, and Quirk Gallery. Skirven has also shown Virginia-wide at Larkin Arts in Harrisonburg and the Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Newport News. When not making art, Skirven is hanging out with his wife, petting his cats, being outside and riding boards and bikes whenever possible.
“While Mellow Gold is also a fantastic album by Beck, this title was bestowed upon me by my late, great best friend J. Taylor Potter. His death left a hole in my heart that I can only fill by letting his energy influence my art and writing. He used to tell me that “it’s all around us” but now I believe he is all around me. Taylor’s mother, Mary Beth, recently gifted me a collection of his writings and I’ve chosen, with her permission, to publish three of my favorite pieces in this book.” -Tim Skirven
