September 15th, The Oceanside Museum of Art presents Volcanos and Full Moons: Ernest Silva

MOPAThe Oceanside Museum of Art presents Volcanos and Full Moons: Ernest Silva on display through September 15. At once comic, contemplative and expressive of the human condition, Ernest Silva's body of work reflects his interest in using multiple narratives to explore personal and universal images. Recognized for his metaphoric imagery of deer, lighthouses, water, birds and figures, Silva presents an engaging conversation between his earlier and more recent work occupying two exhibition galleries and the museum lobby! Silva derives his imagery from a variety of sources: family photographs of his childhood in Rhode Island, vintage story book covers from the 1950's, popular culture and art history. Ernest Silva moved to San Diego from Rhode Island in 1979 to accept a teaching position at UCSD where his is a professor of Visual Arts. Since then he has been an active force not only in the San Diego/Southern California art community, but also on a national and international level. An opening reception will take place on Saturday, June 29 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM and is complimentary to OMA Members and $10 for non-members.
