Oceanside, yes that Oceanside, immortalized in book
My Oceanside Book Release and Photo Exhibit Comes to California Surf Museum
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 June, 2012 : - - Oceanside -- Aaron Checkwood will release My Oceanside, a limited edition book and accompanying photo exhibit at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside on Friday, June 29 from 7pm -10 pm. The opening reception will feature framed imagery from the book, select hand-screened posters and a limited number of signed books for guests to purchase.
Focusing on a collection of photos showcasing life in Oceanside, Aaron deems this a tribute to a city whose people and landscapes are as diverse as the cultures that make it special. “The exhibit is just a snippet of the daily life of a vibrant, eclectic area that stands as the last bastion between San Diego County and the rest of the world,” said Aaron.
The My Oceanside exhibit will run through September 4 with proceeds from the opening party to benefit the California Surf Museum. The event is proudly sponsored by Oceanside businesses Brixton, Raen, Chemistry Surfboards and TransWorld SURF magazine.
