In Between Here & There Opening Reception!

During the cold winter months when I was reminiscing of past trips to warm destinations, I asked my fellow artist friends (as well as wave buddies) to do a surf themed art show with me. Our vision finally came to light on a warm summer's eve at Artful Living Gallery. Check out the photos from our opening below! P.S. Our closing reception will be held this Sunday, October 13th at Root Cafe.

The artists: Brian Willse, Billy Delfs, myself, & Ben Haehn
