AidCurrent artist Matt Beard recently embarked on a three week long road trip down the entire California coast stopping to paint roughly every 50 miles. The resulting 32 paintings made up the show Free Range: California and were shown in his gallery in Arcata for one week only where he offered to donate 20% of any opening night sales to the Surfrider Foundation.  

Surfrider Foundation’s San Diego Chapter Art Gala: 2015

San Diego's Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has been steadily recruiting artists to donate work for years for what has become an annual ritual of art for nonprofit activity that has at times involved most, if not all of our current roster of artists.

If artists giving of their talents to help make their world a better place is something of interest to you and you're in the area when these folks put on their next art gala, do yourself a favor and get your body in the room to enjoy it for yourself. You will be stoked.
