Light and Space: Contemporary Continuations

June 23 – August 25, 2019
Reception: Saturday, June 22

Inspired by the 1960’s Southern California Light and Space movement, this local group exhibition presents contemporary artists who have continued working within the core fundamentals of the original movement. Related to minimalism and geometric abstraction, the work is characterized by its focus on visual perception through light, space, and volume. Inspired by these foundational elements, each artist has expressed an evolved individual interpretation in a variety of mediums. 

At right: Wish You Were Here – foundational elements, local artists Adam Belt, Kaori Fukuyama, and Rebecca Webb express an evolved individual interpretation in a variety of mediums.
