HUNTINGTON BEACH ART CENTER GALLERY & VIRTUAL
JULY 17 - AUGUST 21, 2021
Presented by the Huntington Beach Art Center
Juried by Southern California Surf Art Legends Rick Rietveld & Phil Roberts
Surfing as inspiration began with its roots in Hawaii around 1500 A.D. Over generations, the art of surfing has evolved into a genre of its own. Surfing is dancing on the waves. The experience of unleashed imagination has inspired surfers to channel that energy into a wide variety of expression. The Huntington Beach Art Center proudly presents the works of 100 artists, a shared love of the ocean fueling their creative spirit.
Curated by legendary surf artists Rick Rietveld and Phil Roberts, the exhibition includes 113 works in the galleries and 30 online in a virtual format. Rick and Phil, whose careers span over 40 years, are true masters of surf art and entrepreneurs in the business of surfing. The final selections for Surfing the Pacific Rim are certain to entertain, inform and delight the viewer.
