What started during Art Basel week in South Beach inside the Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz Beach House exhibition and installation space, with the UNIV team's surf craft workshop in the backyard, came to a close today as the special benefit auction for Waves for Water ended with a fantastic amount of bidding from around the world! Juxtapoz, Chandran, and UNIV cannot be any more pleased to donate to the Waves For Water charity and their continuted efforts to bring clean, usable drinking water to areas of the world in need. Especially, we want to thank each artist for their donation of time, energy, and art for the project. Here are the photos from the one-night exhibition at TFR Gallery in Encinitas, a few blocks away from the UNIV Workshop.

On Monday, October 21st, Alan Forbes, a prolific San Francisco-based rock music poster artist, was attacked in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco. The attack left him with two skull fractures and damage to his right eye. As do a lot of artists, he has no insurance to cover the growing medical expenses. To help cover the medical expenses there are two benefit shows set up in San Francisco as well as other fundraisers. Each show will have silent auctions. More information after the jump...
