Art Exhibition Featuring PADA (Photographic and Digital Artists)

Monday, July 22, 2024
Malaga Cove Library
Gallery Exhibit Area
Open for viewing during regular library hours
June 5 - July 22, 2024

(Please note the Gallery is not accessible during private rentals.)

Opening Reception:
Friday June 28, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Exhibit Title: Sea & Shore

How do we see the sea? From the tideline? From the highway? From a kayak or a hilltop? Members of PADA, a peninsula based group of photographers and digital artists respond to that question in Sea & Shore, opening in the Library’s art gallery June 5. For the artists, living at the coast means both tranquil views and storm threats, lazy beach town fun and the drama of a major port. Their works on paper, metal and canvas celebrate what happens in places where land and water come together, along with the varying textures of sand and fog, weathered wood and luminous light.

We hope you will visit this beautiful exhibit and join us for the opening reception where attendees will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists.

The art show featuring a mother and daughter as artists promises to be a celebration of creativity and familial support. The dynamic between the two artists is characterized by a mutual influence, where each has played a role in shaping the other's artistic journey.

Despite having distinct artistic styles, the similarities in their work suggest a shared aesthetic sensibility and a common source of inspiration. The mother and daughter may have diverse approaches to their craft, showcasing a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques. The differences in their styles add depth and variety to the exhibition, providing viewers with a rich and diverse visual experience.

The theme of their paintings revolves around spreading joy, beauty, and inspiration. Both artists have a knack for creating pieces that resonate with positive emotions, uplifting the spirits of those who encounter their work. Their art serves as a testament to the power of creativity in bringing happiness and inspiration to people's lives.
