The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center honored Rincon Point, the aptly nicknamed Queen of the Coast, at a reception held over the weekend in the Koch Courtyard ahead of the upcoming famous Rincon Classic surfing contest. The Wrinkled Teenagers pumped up the crowd as visitors browsed the newly-opened Rincon exhibit, taking in the photographs and paintings honoring the coast. Arts Center Director Kristina Calkins told CVN the center has sold a record 22 art pieces over the past two weeks, with almost $8,000 in sales. The exhibit, featuring all things Rincon, will run through Feb. 26. The arts center is located at 865 Linden Ave. See more at
