Now running through January 21 at the Cultural Council’s gallery in Lake Worth, this amazing exhibition is the brainchild of Arruza, who traveled the world in search of professional surfboard-handcrafters (or shapers) to create unique works of art. With each one-of-a-kind surfboard, Arruza inlaid a photograph, that he had taken and printed, to aesthetically enhance the shape of the board.

Many of the shapers and craftsmen of the 15 colorful, eye-catching and wave-riding surfboards in the exhibition attended the opening reception, including four Floridians: Chris Birch (Pink Hibiscus) and Ricky Carroll (Crystal Lip), both from Rockledge, Ron Heavyside (Mullet Chase) of Boynton Beach, and Sarasota’s Juan Rodriguez (Sunrise Lines).

Also on view during this aquatic-themed exhibition are panels from the Surf History Museum in Lake Park that detail the history of surfing as well as its beginnings in Palm Beach County.
