"Space, Scape and Scope" - On View through July 12
Open Daily 9am - 6pm
Featuring works by Sheila Pinkel, Anne Troutman and Bruria Finkel, the exhibit offers images of micro and macro landscapes, depicting both natural processes and and mechanical devices.Close up lens scans by Sheila Pinkel are her latest investigations into light phenomena as revealed via optical glass. For five years, Pinkel has collected and scanned hundreds of lenses - optics from the early days of photography to the present. Anne Troutman’s photo-based landscape constructions are meditations on the process of change in nature. She employs a technique of un-stitching, re-assembling and physically layering fragments of a single image to create an immediate and immersive experience of seeing. Bruria Finkel's series photographs were taken on the 2012 winter solstice at Santa Monica Beach and on the 2014 summer solstice at Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels in Utah. Taken at 4-second intervals, the images mark both the passage of time and a sense of perpetuity.

Mortem Movement Theater Company – Ensemble in Residence
Director Angela Lopez and company will be writing, rehearsing, and revising at
the Beach House. Everyone’s invited to witness the company’s creation
process. We (or Us) will be a new work devised from classical myths from
around the world.
mission is to cross social, cultural and language barriers to tell stories of
global interest. Taking its name from staging post-curtain performances on the
sets of other productions, Post Mortem is invigorated by the ephemerality of
life. By drawing upon ancestral tales and augmenting them with modern flair,
they aim to celebrate the rich traditions that underpin contemporary society.
Backed by live original music and a troupe of talented performers, We (or
Us) will celebrate the profoundly beautiful, the ludicrously silly, and
everything in between.
Company shares their process
through public rehearsals onsite, weekly blog posts at beachhouseair.blogspot.com, and two Tuesday evening workshops on June 7 & 14 at 6:30pm. Their work culminates in six
performances of We (or Us).
Wednesday-Friday July 13-15 & 20-22
