8th annual wyland surf art show shinn studioThis year’s Wyland show was a bit different than in past years.  We had some new artists, including Welzie of 2 Crows Surfboards who works in fiberglass and resin and Leanna Duncan, whose acrylic work has a really unique dimensional quality.  It was also great to see some of the established artists at the gallery as well who have become good friends over the years including: Shannon O’Connell, Troy Carney, Steve Power, Heather B, David Wight and Walfrido Garcia.  Sadly Colleen Wilcox was unable to join us, but she was there in spirit.

Thank you to everyone who came out that night and supported your local artists and gallery.  It was wonderful to see new and old art friends and patrons and get a chance to meet face to face.  This isn’t always easy when your job is to sit and paint in solitude for days at a time.  Thanks as well to the staff who pulled off yet another great event.
