Last year during Miami Art Basel I painted a custom surfboard to benefit Waves for Water. After a week of walking miles of art fairs, galleries, and street work, the invitation to kick back and paint with friends in a shady cabana was a welcomed reprieve from the circling art frenzy. Now, the time has finally come to show and auction off these painted and glassed boards here in SF, Friday, July 17th at Chandran Gallery.
Juxtapoz once again teams up with UNIV, T.F.R. Gallery and Chandran Gallery for the second in what will become an annual Surf Craft benefit auction, held at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco. This year, we invited artists Chris Johanson, Dan Witz, Swoon, Logan Hicks, Grotesk, Mary Iverson, Brett Amory, Alicia McCarthy, WEST, Zio Ziegler, Kevin E. Taylor, David Arquette, Daryll Peirce, Beau Stanton and Ty Williams to contribute original work on surfboards to be exhibited at the gallery with a live auction on Paddle8 in conjunction with the show. The online auction on Paddle8 will begin Thursday, July 16th at 9amPST and be available for bid till July 29th, 2015.
The special one-night (free) exhibition will be held at the Chandran Gallery, 459 Geary Street, San Francisco on July 17 from 7-9:30pm, with a special DJ set by Andy Cabic (Vetiver).
Join us in support of Waves for Water, an organization that develops clean drinking water systems globally to areas in dire need. The auction will be live at:
