Wade Koniakowsky Opens New Art Gallery, Brokers Mid-East Peace Talks, Solves Zeno’s Paradox, Takes a Nap

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

The indefatigable Mr. Koniakowsky has struck once again. Wade is opening his new Koniakowsky Ocean Art Gallery in Leucadia, California, this Saturday, May 12th, 5:30-9:30. The address is 336 N. Coast Highway, one block north of Jaunita’s Mexican Restaurant. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Wade, hardest-working man in surf art? Could be. If you’re in town, be sure to check it out. It’s bound to be chock full o’ surf art luminaries and other riff-raff. See you there.
P.S. If you haven’t spent time in Leucadia, this might be a good excuse. It’s a throwback to the cool little Southern California surf burgs of the Seventies, what with funky dive bars, health food restaurants, retro surf shops, and the like. And this is a great bomb-throwing blog about the town (whose rallying cry is “Keep Leucadia Funky”). Time didn’t stop in Leucadia, but it definitely took off its flip-flops and kicked back for a spell.

Wade Koniakowsky is going to be having a show at the Pacific Surf Gallery on Saturday, March 17, 2007. It will be a group show with fellow artists David Lloyd, and Wolfgang Bloch. The Pacific Surf Gallery is located at 2081-B San Elijo Avenue, Cardiff (Cardiff Towne Center, between Starbucks and Seaside Market), and will be between the hours of 5pm-9pm. We would love for everyone around to come and support the show, and the artists who are being featured. There will be wine and cheese being served during the reception, and should be a great time.

New Artist on Exhibit

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Robb Havassy has joined the crew over here at Waveriders Gallery, and is our newest addition to the site. He has works available in multiple sizes and has limited editions that are available as well. Take some time and browse through his page, I am sure you will like what you see.

Robb has had quite an interesting life, and has been surfing for quite some time now. He started painting later in his life, and has found his calling. He started out as a GQ model, and somewhere down the road found himself falling in love with painting. And what better to paint than the ocean and waves that mean so much to all of us? I have had the pleasure of eating sushi with Robb, and to say the least, he is a great guy!

Peace, Tim

The show will be from 6:00pm-9:00pm, and the address is 524 S. Coast Highway, Oceanside CA. Our Co-Curator/Journalist Eric Fairbanks and myself will be attending.

Take Care,
