"Surf's Up" will feature sea life depictions beautifully painted on retired surfboards, ocean and beach themed photography and surf-themed painted clocks by artists hailing from Hawaii, Marin County Beach Towns and the famous California "surf town" of Santa Cruz.

The exhibit will include the original artwork of Erik Abel, Matt Beard, Bleen Photography, Clay Campbell, Shawn Griggs, Jeffrey Hemming, Yeshe Jackson, KTO, Llewellyn Ludlow, Kelly Mumford, Maia Negre, Jimbo Phillips, Mary Shisler, Frank Walsh and Kevin Walsh.

The works in the exhibit, curated by town visual arts coordinator Marija Nelson Bleier, are on display from July 8 to Aug. 18.

The Village Theatre and Art Gallery, located at 233 Front St., is open Wednesdays through Fridays 12-5 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment only.
