SkyScapes, an exhibition of artworks highlighting three artists’ fascination with the sky, is on view at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica through Aug. 12.
Through their works, Bruria Finkel, Chris Garland and Lita Albuquerque explore the myriad of natural configuration in the sky, focusing on its beauty and ability to inspire dreams and self-reflection, exhibit organizers said.
Finkel said she has been fascinated by the sky since a very early age and has been tracking the Santa Monica sky for more than 20 years, using Polaroids and photography to capture moments of breathtaking sky images.
Garland has been developing a portfolio since 2007 called “Dream Cloud Images,” which is a collection of photography focused mainly on Palm Desert and the surrounding Coachella Valley.
Albuquerque, an internationally renowned installation, environmental artist, painter and sculptor, has captured the blue of the sky at twilight over the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the day turning into night over Malibu and the sky over Antarctica.
SkyScapes is part of an ongoing series of exhibitions at the Annenberg Community Beach House.
The Annenberg Community Beach House event house gallery is at 415 Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica.
Admission is free and parking is $4 per hour.
