Country Gnome Visits the Big City January 20, 2015 09:24

Fellow gnome and artist Matt Beard recently came all the way from Humboldt county to visit Gnomie in the big wonderful city of San Francisco. Matt came down to work with Gnomie on creating a fun benefit for Surf Aid International. Surf Aid International provides Malaria prevention, community based health, and clean water to people out in remote Indonesia. They are a wonderful organization, please learn more about- SURF AID INTERNATIONAL. Gnomie was lucky enough to once visit and surf the fantastic waves in Indonesia, the land and people were warm and kind!  Gnomie has also had the pleasure of meeting many of the doctors, founders, and staff at Surf Aid and greatly appreciates the humanitarian work they do. So Matt and Gnomie gathered a bunch of artists together to create paintings (mostly on hand crafted surfboards) that will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to Surf Aid International. The event is called the Board Art Benefit, Matt has put together a great website filled with stories and imagery of the processes HERE. We worked with Anthony and Camille of Driftwood Salon Art Gallery and had an amazing event and time! Thank you to everyone whom came out.
