Wavescape Artboard Auction at Jack Black’s Taproom, Wednesday 22 March

Words: Crush

The Wavescape Artboard Project returns in full force with ten one-of-a-kind surfboards, upon which local artists have worked their magic. The auction takes place at Jack Black’s Taproom from 18h00 on Wednesday, 22 March. This year’s lineup of artists includes Brett Murray, Amy Ayanda, Fhatuwani Mukheli, Marie-Louise Koen, Amy-Lee Tak, Dbongz, Justin Southey, Liberty Battson, Lee-Ann Heath, and Marti Lund.

The Wavescape Artboard Project has raised awareness and funds for ocean-related charities since 2005. Each year, Wavescape invites artists to turn signature surfboards into works of art for an exhibition and a special auction.

The Cape Town leg of the project has been hosted by various contemporary art galleries, cafés, and studio spaces over the years, and Jack Black’s Taproom is proud to host the 2023 Cape Town iteration. This year’s project beneficiaries are the NSRI, the 9Miles Project, the Beach Co-op, the Shark Spotters, and Ocean Pledge.
