The stories of one of San Clemente’s most well known surfing families will be the subject of an art exhibit at the Mint Fine Art Gallery Saturday. “The Paskowitz Experience” will feature art by Joshua Paskowitz, the youngest of the nine Paskowitz children. The Paskowitz family has been called “the first family” of surfing, and founded a camp in 1972 to teach surfing, a camp that has produced some of the country’s top surfers. The family was the subject of a documentary film in 2007, and a narrative feature film is being produced about the family starring Sean Penn. Joshua Paskowitz has been sketching since he was a child. He is the co-founder of the organizations Surfing 4 Peace and Rock the Autism.
The exhibition will be held from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Doc and Izzy Paskowitz will each be present to sign copies of their books.
