PADA (Photographic and Digital Artists) exhibit When the Color Goes

Friday, November 12, 2021
Malaga Cove Library
Gallery Exhibit Area
Malaga Cove Library is thrilled to welcome art back into the library! 
October 5 - November 12
When the Color Goes

What happens when photographers close their eyes to the colors around them? Twenty five members of PADA, a Peninsula-based group of photographic and digital artists explore that question in When the Color Goes, opening in the Malaga Cove Library’s art gallery October 5. Images range from the traditional black and white portrait or a still life recalling photography’s origins and subtle depths to landscapes focusing on texture and pattern and digital works using the monochrome palette to evoke dream-like moods. Together, the works in When the Color Goes invites viewers to consider what lies beyond our normal visual spectrum.

PADA (Photographic and Digital Artists) is a collective of seasoned and innovative artists specializing in the continually evolving art form of photography. The youngest of the eight artists’ groups affiliated with the Palos Verdes Art Center,  PADA members move toward creative exploration and excellence and adding knowledge of other art forms by sharing our ideas and techniques, critiquing one another’s work, engaging guest speakers, and participating in group exhibitions, workshops and field trips.

Opening reception October 9 12pm - 4pm

Conversation Starters: Let's Talk About Race -- The Jigsaw Puzzle

We're all a piece of the jigsaw puzzle of society and this 2-hour dialogue with Marymount California University Professor Carlos Royal will highlight concepts and ways we can work together to move forward in reducing prejudice and bias and finishing our puzzle.

Carlos Royal, Associate Professor of Sociology, has been teaching at Marymount California University for almost 14 years. His current courses include Race, Class, and Gender, Research Methods, Statistics, Introduction to Sociology, and Global City: Los Angeles. As the last class implies, he loves L.A. The City of Los Angeles is the focus of his research interest (with special emphasis in race and gender). He uses Los Angeles as the foundation in many of his courses and leads a tour of L.A. for students every semester. Most recently, he took a group of students to Bruce’s Beach, a beach in Manhattan Beach that was Black owned and operated. Carlos is a devoted traveler and has traveled with students to London and Cuba. He has been voted Faculty Member of the Year four times by the student body and Educator of the Year by his faculty colleagues.
