Commonwealth is proud once again to be showing the latest works from local artist Andy Thompson. Andy is a Portland skater, artist, and craftsman whose unique wood-burned skateboard art has been featured in Thrasher Magazine and has shown at Commonwealth once before. The artwork will be hanging at Commonwealth for the next month, with pieces ranging from $140-$650. Most will sell quickly, so visit the shop early if you would like to own one!
We just got a full size run of Converse CONS Chuck Taylor All-star High & Low made in durable, breathable canvas for Spring. We also grabbed a full restock in sizes of the Black/White Star Player Pros in suede. Converse CONS all come with Nike Lunarlon molded insoles, which are the best thing ever invented if you are on your feet all day like we are. Come get em while sizes last!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the premiere of Bacon Skateboards' new skate film Roller Star'd at Commonwealth last night. Joey and Johnny from Unheard Distribution helped make sure the A/V system was up and running at twice the normal speed of our typical cinema experience. The video itself was full of awesome clips with hilarious music choices & editing. The online version will be up soon, so we'll post the link as soon as it's available.
Commonwealth founder and local rider Jen Sherowski has a great write-up on the future of the Burnside Skatepark over at Curb Cut Magazine.
