(All Proceeds Go To Waves for Water Sandy Relief Fund)

ODE to California
Patrick Trefz, 2010, 9 mins
Anyone who has ever been in the sea understands that the ocean is a vast wilderness, and the northern California ocean reality is not always what it seems. "Ode to California" evades expectations in its depths of all things spoken and simultaneously unspoken. Timeless and provocative, "Ode" is a glimpse into the heart of the ocean and those that live in accordance with it.

Itxasoa eta Lehorra
Patrick Trefz, 2012, 8 mins
An elegant film of artist Jim Denevan drawing in the sand of Mundaka in northern Spain, September 2011. The powerful soundtrack, "Low Tide" by Basque folk musician Mikel Laboa accompanies the equally mesmerizing coming and going of the drawing as it is enveloped by the tide.

Q&A with photographer/ filmmaker

Panel discussion moderated by Tyler Breuer with filmmakers TBA.

There will be a Benefit After-Party for Waves for Water Sandy Relief with Djs Matchie and John Dubstar.


Throughout the week there will be an informal exhibition highlighting works of artist Jim Denevan and filmmaker/photographer Patrick Trefz. A selection of photographs, presented in postcard-like format, will span decades of documenting Denevan's days and drawings on the landscape. Edited film stills from Trefz's Ode to California convey the essence of an ineffable non-narrative. Like his films, they evoke a timeless and provocative glimpse into the heart of the ocean and those that live in accordance with it. With a longstanding friendship, an intimate dialog surfaces in the pairing of their work.
