The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center held a proper surf stomp on Saturday evening, Jan. 18, in celebration of the current art show “Rincón” (running through March 3) dedicated to the waves and the cultural gathering place that the famous surf break represents. The Charles LoBue Gallery and courtyard on Linden Avenue were standing room only as Carpinteria’s surf and art communities converged. “The arts continue to be alive in Carpinteria!” said Advisory Board Chair David Powdrell. New Executive Director Paige Van Tuyl delighted in the record-breaking attendance, and thanked “the community, volunteers and our incredible sponsors Rincon Designs, Paula Stussy and Trader Joe’s” during her opening remarks.
