RUSSELL CROTTY: SURF WORKS
September 4–October 3
Thursday, September 4, 2014
UNCW CULTURAL ARTS GALLERY
Artist Lecture: 6:30–7:30 p.m.
in UNCW CULTURAL ARTS BUILDING, RM. 2033
Russell Crotty has been surfing for over 40 years
and exhibiting his artwork for over 30. Employing
a fervent network of ballpoint pen lines and color
washes, his practice chronicles a very personal
and idiosyncratic commentary on subjects that
incite his imagination. This exhibition focuses on
Crotty’s surf specific work and includes iconic surf
drawings, surf books, monoprints, a sequence
panel array, and a seascape/text mobile.

Surf Works is co-sponsored by the Cucalorus
