Dec. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- The weekend event will feature a Skim Board Art Show at Captiva Island's South Seas Resort.  HOWL Gallery/Tattoo in downtown Fort Myers is presenting the show and has assembled a group of the top 30 artists in South Florida, including artists from Fort Myers, Naples, and Miami.  Unpainted Zap Brand Skim boards arrived at HOWL Gallery in early November and with less than a month to complete, selected artists have been creating original art on the boards.  Each skim board measures approximately 20"x40", is made of fiberglass, and looks like a smaller version of a surfboard.  The Skim Board Art Show is being featured as part of the Captiva Holiday Village event organized by Captiva business owners for the 2010 holiday season. Various holiday events will be taking place each weekend of December as part of the Holiday Village.  Also taking place during the Art Show on Saturday, December 11th, will be Skim City's Captiva Island Holiday Pro-Am Skim Board Competition.

Public voting on the Skim Board Art Show will take place December 10th and 11th.  Anyone attending the show will be able to cast a ballot for their favorite 3 skim boards.  First, Second, and Third place winners will be announced on Sunday, December 12th, at noon by NBC-2 Reporter Sarah Hollenbeck.  All of the boards will be available for purchase during the event.

Exhibiting artists include Andy Howl, Matt Lackey, Stephen Gary-Blancett, Terry Tincher, Danny Morgan, Michael Damico, Drew Barnes, Bananas, Eustaqio Pacot, Rodney Jackson, David Hatchett, Veron Ennis, N! Satterfield, Cayce Moyer, Lily Hatchett, Raymond Hernandez, Kyle Jackson, Troy Thomas, Banky, Piper Rudich, Jason McDonald, and many more!

The event is presented by HOWL Gallery/Tattoo in partnership with Zap Skim Boards and sponsored by Captiva Cruises, Franklin Shoppes, and South Seas Island Resort.
