GALLERY SHOWING SURF ART ATTRACTS 400 Print E-mail
August 17, 2007 11:00 pm

The August Second Saturday Art Walk at Signatures Gallery and at all of the 10 other venues was an overwhelming success.

At Signatures, located at the corner of Chetco Avenue and Willow Street, more than 400 people were introduced to surfing as works of art. Visitors came from Hawaii, Seattle, Portland, Redding, Los Angeles and San Francisco to see this historical exhibit and to discover the art and artists featured in other galleries during the popular Art Walk. Each of the galleries on the walk experienced record crowds.

On display at Signatures was the print of the "Ultimate Challenge" an image of Greg Noll in his black and white trunks standing with his yellow board on the shore of the Pipeline surf at Oahu, Hawaiian Islands, in 1964. Also on display was the image of the history-making famous wave at Makaha. On loan from the Heritage Surf Museum for the art walk were the two actual surfboards depicted in those paintings. Other historical images were also on display.

Greg and Laura Noll, with their son Jed, autographed 99 first-edition copies of the book "The Art of the Surfboard" by Drew Kampion. The history of the surfboard from the times of ancient Hawaiians to present day collectors' boards are detailed. All six of Ken Auster's paintings of famous Greg Noll surfing images on display at the gallery and many historical photographs from the Greg Noll Foundation are included.

"The Art of Greg Noll" will be at Signatures Gallery through the month of August. Autographed copies of the full color coffeetable book are still available at the gallery. Signatures is located at 519 Chetco Avenue. Hours are Tuesdays to Saturday from noon to 4 pm. For information call (541) 469-1085.

    A U.S. appeals court is set hear a case whose outcome could make it harder for the government to prosecute insider trading and potentially jeopardize several high-profile guilty verdicts, including that of SAC Capital Advisors portfolio manager Michael Steinberg. The question facing the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Tuesday is one that has divided lower court judges: whether to be convicted of insider trading, the recipient of non-public information must know that the source of the tip benefited from the disclosure. The issue is at the heart of the appeal brought by Todd Newman, a former portfolio manager at the hedge fund Diamondback Capital Management, and Anthony Chiasson, co-founder of the hedge fund Level Global Investors.
