You cordially invited to join 323East in a celebration of the artwork of Detroit’s finest underground tattoo artists as the wholly handsome and tumultuously talented men of Big Top and Signature Tattoo present an alternative to your clean cut, run of the mill...hygienic annual art show with Clean As A Whistle. Featuring new works from Big Top and Signature Tattoo Artists, Clean As A Whistle is to grime what a hot slot machine is to a tarnished dime. Curated by Mark Heggie the show will feature new works from 7 of Detroit’s finest across various mediums.

“This is our answer to the community to create a top notch exhibition that will be accessible to everybody. We’re catering to art collectors, we’re catering to our groupie fans and we’re catering to people who just want a pretty painting to put on the wall for $50. We’re not trying to exclude anybody,” Mark Heggie said. “We know that you’re not just buying a product, you’re not just buying a service, you know what I mean? You’re buying into an experience, and it’s a lifestyle, sometimes it takes over and you start eating and breathing and sleeping it, but sometimes it’s just a cool memento of the times. But hey, it’s going to last longer than any car you’re ever going to buy, any house, any investment.”

Clean As A Whistle will open Saturday, February 18th with an artist reception from 6-11pm at 323East Gallery in Royal Oak. The group exhibition will feature new works by Mark Heggie, Tyler Hemmingsen, Garth Hixon, Davey James, Nick Kelly, Dan Rick and Sam Wolfe. All seven artists will be on hand for a chance to get up-close and personal chance in meet and greet to talk about their artwork. Clean As A Whistle will show from February 18th - March 18th.
