Admiring the wall of surfing photos, surfer Bix Wier told photographer Mark Gibbs and giclee artist Joe Tonini, "All the surfers in town are talking about this wall."

The surfing photos, taken by Gibbs and reproduced in giclee by Tonini, cover the south wall at Signatures Gallery and was part of the March Second Saturday Art Walk.

The surfers in the photographs are all local business people, builders, carpenters, roofers, flooring contractors, et tal. All photos were taken at Sporthaven Beach, many from the south jetty.

All viewers can appreciate the beauty of the ocean and be impressed with the obvious skill of the surfers. However, those who are surfers themselves will probably be most interested in the surfing style displayed.

Tonini said viewers are challenged to identify the surfers in the photos.

He explained that the wall is arranged to allow the photographs to be changed at any time, and that the giclees will hold their color indefinitely. "These giclees will still be around for your grandchildren," he promised.

Signatures Gallery is at 519 Chetco Ave., Brookings.
