No matter how much we know about the Moon, the Earth’s only natural satellite remains an enigma for the majority of people. Surprisingly enough, it always seems so close and yet so foreign when you are enjoying its shining. The most amazing thing about lunar exploration is that you should not be an astronaut to learn a thing or two about this mysterious celestial body. If you want to broaden your aesthetic and intellectual horizons, you should consider visiting LUNA, an ongoing art show at Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, California.
LUNA: the art show that will launch you to the Moon
LUNA is a group exhibition that features works by ten talented artists, each sharing their own perspective on the presence of the Moon. These include Jane Banks, Aondrea Maynard, Miya Ando, Gigi Mills, Mila Libman, Tahiti Pehrson, Steven Seinberg, Danielle Rante, Michael Varley, and Allison Svoboda.
The art show was initially scheduled for October 2020, but it was canceled due to pandemic restrictions. The date was not chosen by chance. Bryant Street Gallery wanted to connect the exposition to the Blue Moon, a lunar event occurring that month, but, unfortunately, those plans were not destined to be realized. However, this year, the exhibit is still symbolically and spiritually tied to the Moon, as the period of April-May 2021 is marked by two supermoons and a lunar eclipse. The show is now on view at the gallery’s location at 532 Bryant Street, Palo Alto, and will run through May 28, with an all-day opening reception on May 1.
LUNA features a wide range of art styles and mediums. At the same time, all artworks presented at the exhibition focus on the same thing – the Moon, turning this art show into a themed anthology. From abstract art to realism to impressionism, there is something for everyone. Whichever genre is closer to your heart, LUNA is a must-visit event brilliantly organized and curated by a dedicated team of art professionals at Bryant Street Gallery.
