| Discover new perspectives in the new Santa Clarita art exhibits

Discover a whole new way to see the world around you as you explore two new art exhibits currently on display in Santa Clarita. “Earthereal Views” at Canyon Country Community Center and “Fluid Art: Elements of Nature” at the Valencia Branch of the Santa Clarita Public Library offer residents the opportunity to gain a new perspective and discover their untapped potential.

“Earthereal Views” by Josué Silva will be on display through August 31 in the gallery at Canyon Country Community Center, 18410 Sierra Highway, Canyon Country, CA 91351.

Silva is a photographer influenced by the painting medium. After working in media production for an aviation company, he was introduced to a whole new perspective of still photography, resulting in a unique artistic transition of self-expression through the lens. “Earthereal Views” consists of simplistic patterns, shapes and textures that reflect the natural beauty of the world.

“Fluid Art: Elements of Nature” by Caroline Chung Takeda will be on display until October 6 at the Valencia Branch of the Santa Clarita Public Library, 23743 Valencia Blvd., Valencia, CA 91355.

She describes herself as a late artist who is free to observe and experiment with different genres of art. Takeda developed an interest in fluid acrylic paint, also known as fluid, which is on display in this exhibit. She draws on emotions and sensory motivation from what she sees, hears and feels.
