Ollie Jolly Christmas

Mmm, December in the Valley: The distinctive aroma of brown cloud. Holiday shoppers bundled up in T-shirts and flip-flops. The rumble, rumble, clack of festive skateboards at the "Sk8 Deck the Halls" art show.

"There's going to be a huge mixture of people showing there, from all different types of influences," says Tucson's Brooke Grucella. The artist's intricate, evocative painting across four decks demonstrates the urban-contemporary movement's embrace of rangy subject matter, unified by quick, concise, sometimes stealthy transmission of what's spinning in the 21st-century megalopolitan consciousness -- hence that whole hip-hop-graffiti-tattoo-skater connection.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 5. Continues through Dec. 29, 2007
