Artist in Residence | R.J. Murray

Photo Gallery

Our June Artist in Residence guest was R.J. Murray of Three Brothers Boards. Established in 2009 after a sudden loss of their younger brother, R.J. and Justin Murray set out to make their lifelong dream of opening a surf shop a reality. Three Brothers Boards specializes in handmade wooden stand-up paddleboards inspired by the classic boards of the 1950's and 1960's and are made with plants of oak, redwood and Hawaiian koa. R.J. spent the week visiting with members and guests during gallery hours, giving lessons and hosting two paddleboard tours of the May River. Visit for more information on Three Brothers Boards and the other makers joining us at the Artist Cottage this year.
