Rick Sharp, who was born into an entertainment family, made a name for himself as a poster artist in the '70s surf culture of Southern California. During that time period, the young artist’s work appeared on national magazine covers, Hang Ten t-shirts, surf posters, album covers and concert posters for folk music icons such as Donovan, Arlo Guthrie and Peter, Paul & Mary, to name a few. Sharp’s early work was reproduced as posters by Channel Islands Surfboards, KTYD Radio and the City of Santa Barbara’s Fiesta celebrations and are now historic and hard-to-come-by.
Artist Reception 6 -7pm; lecture starts at 7pm.
RSVP: (805) 962-8404 x115
