Deena Altman’s thought-provoking 8-part series presents a vivid exploration of the life journey of women, from infancy to old age. Each life stage serves as a canvas to portray the unique challenges faced by women and how these challenges mold their life paths. Altman’s work sheds light on the subtle yet prevalent societal biases that impact women’s lives, both detrimental and beneficial to their development. “Female Rising” offers a compelling commentary on the shared experiences of women and men alike.
Listening to the Heard/Drawing the Unseen: Meditations on Presence and Absence in Native Lands. Drawings by John Halaka
Visitors will be transported into the profound world of visual artist John Halaka, a San Diego-based talent. Halaka’s selection of drawings delves into the themes of displacement and indigenous resilience. His work is deeply informed by personal stories of activists, scholars, and artists. Additionally, Halaka’s art acknowledges the often-overlooked work of indigenous and migrant farmers and laborers.
Oceanside Museum of Art presents a selection of works from its second biennial Oceanside Plein Air Festival, which took place in July. The exhibition celebrates the artistic talents of individuals at all levels of experience and captures the seamless blend of nature and artistic expression.
Tickets are currently available for purchase for $15 per person, free for OMA members.
See you there, San Diego!
