Summer Group Show

OFFSHORE @ Susan Street Fine Art
Exhibition Dates: July 17- September 14, 2008

Artists from around the country are brought together in OFFSHORE, a group exhibition characterizing the development of beach and surf-culture over the past seventy-five years.

Surf history is made timeless through the photographs of Tom Blake, Ron Church, Jeff Divine and Don James. These vintage silver gelatin, platinum and color prints preset moments in surf history. Encompassing the visual and conceptual aspects of surfing through photographs that range from the late 1930's to present day.

Joshua Jensen Nagle's captivating beach settings reveal a coastal romanticism. Nagle achieves an intriguing tone in his paintings by combining both photographic and painting mediums. In Nagle's experimental techniques he employs a toy-camera and expired Polaroid film achieving a timeless mood in his works.

Alex Weinstein's atmospheric paintings give the viewer an intimate sense of our powerful oceans. Like Turner, Weinstein abandons form and captures the movement of the waves through outlining light and color, allowing the viewer to swim into the piece.

Hobie- made surfboards bearing original works of fine art by Dianna Cohen, Wayne DeSelle, Salomon Emquies, Kymber Holt, Nicole Strasburg and Jodi Zellen, transform the California icon. These exquisite and unique boards are the ideal example of how fine art and surfing have merged to blossom into a credible art form.
