RAEN ambassador Alex Knost’s recently opened gallery, Costa Mesa Conceptual Art Center, presents “The Bonzer”: A contemporary compendium of the Campbell Brother’s vessel, surveying its evolution and accelerating mindfulness.
Alex and partner Daniella Murphy have put together a mind-altering collection of surfboards, photographs, concept art, and design-related works to celebrate the design contributions Malcolm and Duncan Campbell have given to the surf community.

The opening reception is this Saturday, February 4th, from 4-7pm.
