The Queen of the Coast art exhibition, which will be held in conjunction with the Rincon Classic, will be on display from January 14 to February 15. 20 at Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, 865 Linden Ave.
A celebration of all things Rincon, the Pacific Coast, and Southern California’s surf culture, the show will feature artists from Carpinteria, the Rincon area, Santa Barbara and Ventura.
Admission is free to the gallery, which will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. A public reception for the Queen of the Coast is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 22, with live music in Koch’s yard from The Wrinkled Teenagers.
The Rincon Classic is one of the oldest and most revered events in California’s rich surfing history, spotlighting generations of the region’s top surfers on the legendary cobblestones of Rincon Point in pristine winter conditions.
The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center last hosted the Rincon Exhibition in 2020. The crowd of artists, surfers and enthusiasts of Rincon broke attendance records at the Arts Center’s opening reception in the courtyard and the gallery since the opening of building 865 in 2019.
