Surf’s up in the gallery

Spence Hornby - wave Full Focus, a digital print by Spence Hornby, is one of the works on show

You can experience breathtaking work from four of Australia’s leading surf photographers at Gosford Regional Gallery this summer. 

It Seems to Come in Waves is a must-see exhibition for lovers of the ocean, surfing and photography. 

Central Coast Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan, said the collection of works by Ryan Heywood, Spence Hornby, Reed Plummer and Luke Shadbolt embodies the expansive and powerful beauty of the ocean. 

“The ocean is a big part of our lives here on the Coast and this incredible exhibition will appeal to a very broad audience,” Vaughan said. 

“You are taken on a journey through the myriad of waves encountered by surfers of all types and this is a not-bemissed experience for anybody who loves surfing or photography.” Developments in technology – including drone and underwater cameras – have taken the art of ocean photography to new levels and this is evident in the exhibition. 

Council Administrator Dick Persson said the exhibition was a sure winner. “You can’t go far on the Central Coast without being exposed to spectacular bodies of water and this exhibition will mesmerise and inspire anybody who loves the ocean,” he said. 

The exhibition will be on show until January 31.
