There's a burgeoning bicycle culture in Dallas, and a Deep Ellum gallery is celebrating cycling culture with a group exhibition.
The Public Trust will host "Good Peoples: A Group Exhibition For The Good of Bicycles" from Jan. 19 to Feb. 23. Located at 2919 Commerce Street, the gallery will feature works by Magnificent Beard: Matt Brinker and Connor Hill Kyle Confehr, Brian Gibb, Taro-Kun, Gina Mayes, Favio Moreno, Mylan Nguyen, Brent Ozaeta, Brendan Polk and Emily Stoker.
" 'Sunday Peoples' is a group exhibition that I am really happy to be a part of," said Stoker, a photographer. "The show encourages and celebrates Dallas bicycle culture through various mediums."
The Public Trust will also publish a limited edition, full-color, 28-page zine commemorating the show.
"There will be several events where people can engage with the local bicycle and art community, from group rides to the exhibit to free bike repair to free booze and food trucks," Stoker added. "It is going to be a unique local experience with some of Dallas' finest people."
The free and public events include:
- Bike repair courtesy of Transit Bicycle Co. on Feb. 2 from noon to 6 p.m.
