R. Blitzer Gallery was full of the colorful, creative and bizarre expressions of Shawn “Barney” Barron. This iconic local Santa Cruz legend and surfer was a prolific artist. He created so many works of art, life was art to him. His art will be with us forever, reminding us of the unimaginable depth, twists and humorous turns of his mind and heart. The event was packed with so many fans. It was a special night to have us all in one place with so many pieces of Barney. J-Willz and Corona gave us our musical favorites, some songs specifically honoring our friend. This event was orchastrated with love by Amelia Coulter, Sandbar Brenna, FleaHab, Nate Weinstein, and Patrick Trefz. If you’d like to see the pieces, “The HeART of Barney” art show will be up for the month of January at R. Blitzer Gallery. A successfully beautiful night! Go 9Barn!
