Mr. Gray and friends definitely brought the heat to Illuzion Glass Galleries' First Friday event on April 7th, 2017. An entire cube of collaborations and new work sat waiting to be unveiled as the party goers began to arrive. With Pelican cases in hand, the fans began to gather around the viewing window as Mr. Gray and friend Justin Knoferl began prep work for an amazing night of collaborations with local artist Ill Glass.
As the night went on, the back parking lot of Illuzion Glass Galleries began to fill with many familiar faces of the industry. Groovy tunes, Amore Pizza, and beverages floated all around as Mr. Gray began decorating two of Ill Glass's custom Satellite recyclers. Around 9:00 PM the Mr. Gray "Pineapple Rising" display cube was uncovered and fans began to swarm and gawk at all the various pineapple rigs and recyclers manifested over the last few months. The showcase displayed many collaborations including artists N8 Miers, Joe Peters, D-Wreck, Bishop, Ben David, and F-Time. A number of solo pieces were also presented, including a new line of rigs featuring almost every color of the rainbow!
At one point in the night, Mr. Gray and Justin decided to bring another medium into play and a completely functional homemade pineapple water pipe was constructed. All around, the night was one for the books! The finished pieces are still available and on display in store at our Denver location. Thanks for joining us if you managed to make it, we hope to see you all for our next event!
