I first met David Kimball Anderson in Santa Cruz, where he had his metal shop a few doors down from the Strive Factory. I had a shaping room there and I'd often see him doing neat things with a spray bottle and a blowtorch. He's well-known for his metal sculptures, and I'm lucky to have one of his waves in my living room. David is going to be in a group show for the Surfrider Foundation's 25th Anniversary party in LA. Everyone should come and check it out--it's for a good cause:

To commemorate its twenty-fifth anniversary, the Surfrider Foundation has invited twenty-five artists to represent twenty-five specific waves worldwide. David Kimball Anderson has been invited to depict Steamer Lane, Santa Cruz, California.

NIGHT LANE, 2009, 10 1/2 x 34 x 23 inches, cast bronze, along with the other works in the exhibition, will be auctioned to benefit the Surfrider Foundation at the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration event to be held at the California Science Center, Los Angeles, in October, 2009.

NIGHT LANE will be an edition of three. The total proceeds of 1/3 will benefit the Surfrider Foundation. 2/3 and 3/3 will be sold following the benefit event and 20% of the proceeds of the sale of each will benefit the Surfrider Foundation.

David Kimball Anderson began wave referenced work in 1995 and continues to make table-top scale bronze waves. These waves are available for sale and donations to benefit institutions and individuals in need. Please contact the artist directly.
