Surf Art in Belmar

There is a very unique show in the Boatworks right now, called The Innermost Limits of Pure Stroke. The show is all art with a surfing theme- paintings, photos, drawings, etc- even some special surfboards. More than 100 pieces will be on display. The exhibition, which benefits SurfAid International, officially opens on September 5, and will have a special reception on Sunday, September 13, from 6 to 8 pm. The show will remain on display during regular gallery hours through October 2nd.

Tonight was our regular monthly member meeting and we had a special guest. Jay Alders is a very busy local artist- a prolific fine artist who has exhibited pretty much anywhere with a coastline, but also producing quality commission work for publications and products. Much of his art depicts one of his favorite activities, surfing. Of course he has some work in this current show, but tonight the more than 30 people in attendance saw a slide show of past and current work, including step by step views of his process.
