This holiday season, local artists have been working to turn wooden skateboard decks into works of art for one of Clientele Art Studio’s signature events, Deck The Halls. The event begins at 8 p.m. with a live auction for the custom skateboards kicking off at 9 p.m.
Deck the Halls was established in 2018 by local artist Chad Fullerton and Clientele Art Studio. The art exhibit is a collective of skateboard decks designed by local artists and auctioned off live at the show’s opening on Saturday, December 17. Clientele has a bar and catering is provided by Whisk Bakery.
This is the fourth time the event has been hosted at Clientele, and has previously raised over $16,000 for Wheeling charities. This year, the beneficiaries will include Clientele Art Studio itself, and the artists participating in the exhibit.
“Every year we hold this event the artists come up with more and more creative ways to turn their skateboard decks into stunning pieces of art,” said Clientele owner, William Wallace, “We’re excited to see what they come up with this year for the show.”
