A couple of resident Santora Artists will be paying homage to the Santora Community Mural that was whitewashed over the holidays this Saturday, January 4, 2014, at 7:30 pm, during the monthly Artists Village Art Walk.
Bring photos, flowers, new creations and our Unity to celebrate the artists of the village!
The Santora mural was not the only artwork whitewashed by Jack Jakosky, the owner of the Santora Building. He also destroyed the gallery name above the front door of Matt Southgate’s Studio del Sotano.
For approximately 5 years, Southgate had a framed wooden plaque that was painted green with the letters for “Studio del Sotano” painted in white and gold. A couple of months before the Santora ownership officially changed hands, the gallery name plaque was mysteriously knocked off the wall, damaged, and was laying on the floor in front of the front door. It was after that incident that Southgate quickly decided to paint a new version of the gallery name in dark red directly on to the wall, (not as a hanging plaque). This red version lasted about 5 or 6 months before it was recently eradicated without warning.
