If you find yourself in Avila Beach taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of the Central Coast, be sure to stop by the Chris Burkard Art Gallery. You’ll find surfers catching waves among the glaciers and skies painted with colors you’ve never seen before. Your appreciation for nature will be taken to a whole new level once you experience the journey Chris takes you on. His unique ability to capture mother nature’s personality through his photography will amaze you. You will find images of energized landscapes and humans enduring the elements in a world so many of us often forget exists. Recently Chris’s art caught the attention of TED (the organization behind TED talks) who asked him to do a TED talk about his life and art. You can watch his TED talk here. When you’re finished, do yourself a favor and go give Chris a visit.

His art gallery is located at: 445 1st. Avila Beach, CA 93424 and is open Thursday-Saturday.
