Cielo, Mar, y Tierra Exhibit

On September 11, 2014 THE FRONT opened another annual exhibit. In collaboration with the Museum of Photographic Arts, twenty local San Ysidro artists presented their works of photography created throughout the year. These twenty artists, mostly seniors, additionally were given a 10 day intensive workshop to create traditional Mexican Art Boxes by the well-known Mexican artist, Oscar Hernandez Ceron.

The photography represented the themes of earth, sea and the sky. The common thread was a passion for exploration;

“Arte Object” Workshop

The objective of this workshop was to promote Mexican popular artisanal art and to develop the creativity and ingenuity of the participants, thereby capturing that inventiveness in each of these “Arte Object” creations, while at the same time looking for the opportunity to introduce artisanal richness and its developmental process to new generations.

Each participant has characterized their persona and given it life, using non-conventional materials and exchanging the ideas and history that have served to enrich each one of these creations.

Taller de Arte Ojbeto: “Cajitas de Corazon”

From The Photography:

“In wisdom gathered over time, I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.” — Ansel Adams

In the following body of work, fourteen photographers explored the broad theme of earth, sea and the sky. Visiting sites both close and far, from throughout the country to straddling international borders, they sought to capture moments of their explorations through the lends.

Some found quintessential beauty in a sunset, or a quiet stretch of beach under the noontime sun. Others found textures in the shadows cast by a setting sun in the sand, or shapes in the ribbon-like lines of a freeway overpass winding through the landscape.

The common thread which all the images share is this passion for exploration; exploration of what it means to capture these essential elements which surround us everyday, yet can always be revisited once again and seen anew.
