Wavescape Surf Art Exhibition 2012
Top artists use retro surfboards as canvas.
The Wavescape Art Board Project has been raising awareness and funds for ocean related charities since 2005. Each year, we invite artists to turn 10 signature surfboards into works of art for an exhibition that ends with an auction.
The Cape Town leg of the Project takes place in the City Bowl in early December, and has been hosted by various contemporary art galleries, cafes and studio spaces over the years. In September 2012, the Project launched in New York.
The main beneficiaries of the Project include the NSRI, Shark Spotters and the Isiqalo Foundation. Contributing artists include Conrad Botha, Beezy Bailey, Wim
Botha, Guy Tillim, Brett Murray, Conn Bertish, Justin Fiske, Roger Ballen, Peter Eastman, Richard Scott, Gabby Raaff, ND Mazin, Richard Hart, Anton Kannemeyer, Peter van Straten, Kim Longhurst, Scott Robertson, Zapiro, Chip Snaddon, Mr Fuzzy Slipperz, Varenka Paschke, and Osnat de Villiers.
The new Superette in the Woodstock Exchange, at 66 Albert Road in Woodstock. The exhibition runs from 28 November to 5 December. The Auction evening is on 5 December and starts at 8pm. If you would like to attend the auction please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kim Longhurst believes that craft is next to godliness. She is a mama, designer, illustrator, painter, embroiderer, gardener, purveyor of all things beautiful (and kitsch), partner to Scott Robertson. Her work has progressed from a shoe shine poster, the side of a bus, an underground zine, packaging, posters, t-shirts and book covers to publication in Martin Dawber’s Big Book of Fashion. Kim has taken part in collaborative exhibitions, curated an exhibition of seven of Durban’s top illustrators and made a curious little solo show, more cabinet of curiosities than traditional fine art
