Exhibition to showcase surfing
FASHION, film, literature and the arts, activities that have underpinned the surfing industry for 50 years, will feature at the Yamba Museum's summer exhibition.
Exhibition curator Deb- rah Novak said everyone at the museum was looking forward to exploring some of the elements that made surfing the lifestyle choice of millions of Australians.
"Locally, we have some amazingly talented people who have contributed enormously to the Australian and international surfing culture revolution through film, journalism, clothing and the graphic arts," Ms Novak said.
"This third surfing-related exhibition will feature retro Fandango swimwear by Grant Dwyer, legendary films from Paul Witzig and local vintage beach culture photographs taken around the turn of the century.
"This year, for something different we will be hosting a literary supper and will be in conversation with acclaimed authors John Witzig and Tim Baker who have recently launched their new surfing books."
Before the museum puts the exhibition to bed, people are requested to bring in any old surfing video footage, photos and graphic art of the area plus any surf-related treasures people may have stored in their sheds for consideration for the exhibition.
