The International Surfing Museum's newest exhibit is not about surfing, but was created by a surfer.
"A Surfer's Impression" opens Saturday and showcases the artwork of surfer and artist Ronald Stevens, who took up the sport at age 11.
Stevens, 50, said his mixed-media abstracts, with names such as "Wipe Out," portray a free feeling, like surfing.
"My art isn't really about surfing, but because surfing is a big part of my life, it naturally influences my style--very free form," said Stevens, a Huntington Beach resident who also creates sculptures and jewelry.
A reception will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 411 Olive Ave. Surf bands the Green Room and Neptunas will provide entertainment.
The exhibit will continue through Aug. 3. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. daily. Call (714) 960-3483 for more information.
