June 21: Toxikologie Art Exhibit Reception at The MAIN

The city of Santa Clarita invites the community to a reception for “Toxikologie,” the latest art exhibit at The MAIN. Guests will have the opportunity to view the artwork, enjoy light refreshments and meet the artist.

Driven by an equal love for both the arts and sciences, Cutshall’s inspiration for “Toxikologie” arises from religious symbolism and medieval plague-era imagery, juxtaposed with the childlike, colorful world of Harajuku Decora street fashion in Japan. For her series, Cutshall compares the manner in which professional toxicologists study chemical effects on human health – whether beneficial, harmful or benign – to the manner in which aesthetic and emotional toxicity or innocence is interpreted through cultural images.

The exhibit will be on display from June 19 through July 13, 2018 and is available for viewing during all events at The MAIN, as well as Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

June 21: Scenic Captures in Photography – Artist Reception at The MAIN
Time: 7:00 p.m.

The city of Santa Clarita invites you to attend an artist reception for the photography exhibit featuring Ryan Coursey and Ron Pinkerton at The MAIN. Guests will enjoy light snacks, music and a chance to meet the photographers.

“Don’t Listen to What They Say! Go See!” presents photographs from artist Ryan Coursey’s travels. Ryan is a travel and landscape photographer and videographer with over 10 years of Hollywood post-production experience. After working with some of Hollywood’s biggest names on TV, commercial, and animated projects, Ryan decided to form his own business out of Burbank called RYCO.LA, specializing in photography, videography and aerial drone company. A selection of Ryan’s colorful scenic captures will be featured in this exhibit.

“The Last Stand: Night Photography and Light Painting in the Mojave Desert,” by artist Ron Pinkerton features images created by using a technique known as light painting, which involves the use of moonlight and a hand-held flashlight or theater gels. Ron’s images explore the mythology and reality of the desert. Ron explains, “The mythology includes the idea that the desert is a blank canvas, a place of freedom, where one can pursue their dreams…that mythology is not without merit, but it is tempered by the reality of the desert. Life is hard, distances are far, and success is rare.”
