A Rockaway Artists Alliance recently held the exhibit “Guardians of the Sea; Riders of the Waves.” The exhibit displayed images of Rockaway’s beach and bay. It was the first time an exhibit addressed a beach/bay theme. The show displayed brilliant images of surfers, lifeguards and mermaids, vintage postcards, imaginative multimedia works, abstract paintings, prints, photographs, stained glass, a lifeguard video and a surfing film. Therewas a diverse range of artists and families that brought their talent to RAA. The exhibition was hosted by Sophia Skeans, a board member of RAA. “A team of fantastic artists and friends delivered a very special evening,” she said.
