The Call of the Surf: Riding California Waves

First Friday Reception August 5,  5-8 pm

Patrick Tehan photography.  Patrick was inspired by surfers when he worked for the Orange County Register and was sent on assignment to Huntington Beach.  He was struck by the sheer beauty of the sport of surfing, the iconic surfboards, the crashing waves, the endless horizon of the Pacific Ocean.  He felt compelled to capture the incredible passion and dedication of so many who literally live to ride the waves.  These photos were made during his nine years in Southern California and twenty-eight years in Santa Cruz County.  This show is his appreciation for all the surfers he has been privileged to photograph and includes surfing legends such as Jay Moriarty, Zach Wormhoudt, Jack O'Neill, Peter Mel, Darryl "Flea" Virostko and others.  

Exhibit runs July 1 - August 28.

Gallery hours:  Thursday - Sunday, 1-4 pm

Twelve new paintings by Mary Alice Copp of our precious local landscape as it is today:  our redwoods, eucalyptus, oaks, lagoons and lakes.  Also by Copp is a room-size mural of geometric paintings.  The two bodies of work are related in their use of color, movement and dynamics.  

The title HERE TODAY refers not only to the subject matter, but also Copp's continued rapt involvement with painting after more than 55 years at the easel.
