Kassia Meador Rocks NYC With Art


Kassia Meador's Work On Display Throughout The Big Apple

Encinitas, California (September 14, 2010) – Pro surfer, photographer and artist Kassia Meador continues to push her art and photo career and its bounty is gaining recognition allover New York City this month. From Brooklyn to Chelsea, art, photo, fashion and music enthusiasts are getting a glimpse of the talented 26-year-old's latest artistic endeavors.

“It's a powerful mix to combine surf travel with these opportunities that bring together creative types from the art, photo and music world," says Meador. "For me, it is all about expression whether in the water or behind the lens. I'm thankful to be included in these incredible events."

Tonight, September 14th, good times will be had at this stop of the Love on Earth 2010 tour at Mollusk Surfshop in Brooklyn starting at 7PM. Kassia will be putting on a photo show with highlights of her newest photo work. Big Search, DJ Mandy Brooks and Beach Fossils will set the soundtrack for the night brought to art and music fans by Roxy, Black Iris and Foam Magazine.

Kassia will stick around in the Big Apple to show her work at the Nixon Art Mosh on September 17th. The Nixon Art Mosh is a global, rotating art installation featuring works from Nixon team riders, friends and family. It sets up in Chelsea for the second year-in-a-row. Nixon curated artwork, photography and films will be on display as well as live, musical performances by 2 Mandy DJs and Ninjasonic. Kassia's works will show at the Mosh alongside the many of the most celebrated artists and photographers in skate/surf/snow/music culture.

Last week, Kassia took her flourishing art career to the deck (skate decks that is) during Fashion's Night Out. At the Roxy store in SOHO, Kassia helped party-goers personalize their own skate deck to ride off on in celebration of Roxy's expanding line of skateboards. As well, Kassia's signature apparel and wetsuit line were on display for participants to check out.
