DBO Gallery will be celebrating its official opening July 7, 2018 6pm to 9pm during the Downtown Artwalk. DBO Gallery in the brainchild of artist, Olasubomi Aka-Bashorun. Having opened a DBO Gallery in Clarkesville in May 2018, he teamed up with artist, Sam Welch, to find a Downtown location within the Arts District. Located inside The historic Nashville Arcade, the gallery is  surrounded by a great community of artist studios. Bashorun & Welch welcomed recent Nashville transplant, Kim Barry, into the fold as a represented artist.  

Olasubomi Aka-Bashorun is an artist born in Lagos, Nigeria and grew up in Edmond, Oklahoma. He graduated with an art degree from Oklahoma Baptist University  in 2010 and now lives and works in the Middle Tennessee area. His work focuses on expressionistic portraitures and large scale public murals.  

Sam Welch, a native of Nashville, is a creative entrepreneur in bringing platforms, events, and spaces to artists. As an artist, himself, he leans towards the blend of street art through the eyes of a optimistic anarchist.

Kim Barry, a Pittsburgh-born artist, has travelled the country created experimental art studios  - Suite 106 in Florida, West Eleven in Los Angeles, and, most recently SixTHreeFouR in Pittsburgh, PA. Within each creative space, she designs interactive environments that include her paintings, sculptures, collaborative music, movement and installation. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including The Louvre's Contemporary Art Festival, Long Beach's 100 years of Women in Art Exhibit, The Oxford International Art Fair  and is held in private and corporate collections. 

This month, The Gallery will feature work from Bashorun, Welch, and Barry.

The pieces are from his October 2017 Pittsburgh exhibition “Recycled & Reclaimed”  at SixTHreeFouR.

Recycled & Reclaimed Oct. 27, 2017 - A Night with Stephen Shellen

Stephen Shellen takes over SixTHreeFouR for a night with his latest original art installation and first U.S. screening of his latest feature film, " Spark," involving topics of mind bending proportions. "Recycled and Reclaimed" is the exploration into worlds that linger in the shadows on every street, heard on every radio station , and seen on our fav t.v shows without detection. The studio will be transformed into this world- scary, honest, heartbreaking, infuriating, exposing, and liberating- and uh..... BRING YOUR SKATEBOARD. K. That is all for now. 

This is an 18+ event with adult content and issues. Please note. 

"Recycled and Reclaimed" 

By the Individual , Haphazard 

Includes a film, a journey down the rabbit hole
and a series of art installations
journey that follows no map or direction

Audience participation is encouraged and Pittsburgh should be and hopefully is, the only Star

The city where 3 rivers converge

where film, art and junk all meet up
beauty in the grotesque

"Pittsburgh as you have never seen this handsome woman before"


7pm Gates open--  walk or skate thru "Recycled and Reclaimed". Enjoy light snacks and drinks.

8 pm Preimiere U.S. screening of feature film "Spark"

A strange, fascinating abstract film about deep surveillance by Canadian activist artist Stephen Shellenberger. One day, a thoroughly ordinary man finds himself under Black Ops surveillance. What starts as a paranoid nightmare soon morphs into a bold abstract experimental film. Canadian activist artist Stephen Shellenberger, who endured a similar ordeal more than 20 years ago, self-financed this semi-improvised and wholly engrossing, mindbending work.

Stephen Shellen grew up in Victoria, British Columbia where he was his high school's star hockey player before heading north to work as a lumberjack. After catching the attention of a talent scout in Vancouver, he decided to try his hand at acting, spurred on in part by the memory of a less-than-appreciative audience during his first stage performance in junior high. Moving to Los Angeles, he studied with Peggy Feury and soon became a familiar face in feature films including Casual Sex? (1988) with Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson, festival favourite The Stepfather (1987) with Terry O'Quinn and Shelley Hack, the star-studded miniseries Hollywood Wives (1985), with Anthony Hopkins, Candice Bergen and Robert Stack, and the TV movie and basis of the series Murder One(1995). Returning to Canada in the early 90s, Stephen had a lead role on the Nikita-esque USA Networks series Counterstrike (1990), with Simon MacCorkindale and Christopher Plummer, in which he played Luke Brenner, part of a team of three operatives who fought terrorism around the globe. Back in the U.S., Stephen starred in Stand Off (1994), a film about a hostage crisis for which he won critical raves. He also made an appearance as the cocky actor brother of Craig Sheffer's love interest in the Academy-Award-winning A River Runs Through It (1992); his scenes with Susan Trawley were referred to by Newsweek as the funniest sequence in the movie. His career continued to blend big-budget, box office winners like The Bodyguard (1992) with Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, and small but critically acclaimed independent films like Rude (1995) which was named the Best Canadian Feature Film at the 1995 Toronto International Film Festival, as well as receiving eight Genie nominations. Stephen can also be seen in guest appearances on popular TV shows like Law & Order (1990) and Due South (1994). In 1997, he was invited to Toronto to shoot what he thought would be a one-time appearance on _La Femme Nikita_, playing a dedicated police detective who stumbles into more than he bargained for in pursuit of a serial killer. However, he was a hit with the show's fans, and so LFN made the decision to bring him back in a recurring role for the series' fifth and final season. The episodes began airing in the U.S. in January 2001. Stephen has also been seen in the hit Nicolas Cage/Angelina Jolie film Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000).

"Underlined Passages delivers a soulful, shoegaze sound with “Tandi My Dicafi”. Dreamy with ethereal vocals, the way the album unfolds gives it a reassuring air. Lyrics focus on a warm tender spirit, one that feels so welcoming. Elements of Underlined Passages adhere strongly to that pivotal late 80s/early 90s style while incorporating pieces of pop and indie rock with good measure. Guitars weave themselves together into a vast tapestry, one that constantly and continuously soars into the sky. By far the true heart of the album rests with the poetic powerful lyricism.

Things open with the neon-hued glow of “Feeling”. Synthesizer adds to the vibrancy of the song as the groove settles into a driving rhythm. Rather fast the song rushes by in a glorious blur. Physical beats hit hard on the muscular “Silverlake”. A western twang to the guitars adds to the overall spirit of the song, for with this piece Underlined Passages’ attention to detail recalls some of My Bloody Valentine’s best work. Easily the highlight of the album the pastoral “Your Bedroom” delves into an otherworldly charm, with the slow steady buildup creating a sense of intimacy. Full of life “Ruthenia” bursts with optimism and energy. Bringing things to a close the introspective “The Days Were Golden My Friends” opts for a more intimate approach referencing Mojave3’s kind spirit.

With “Tandi My Dicafi” Underlined Passages paints with a great swath of color, resulting in a summery airy atmosphere one filled with hope." - Beach Sloth publications
