'Splash' Exhibit in Oxnard Explores Fascination With Water

Put artists next to water and their creative juices flow. Inspired by coastal waters, Southern California artists have found plenty of ways to interpret wet. "Splash! liquid energy spattered," an exhibition on display through Aug. 21 at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, celebrates our fascination with water.

The collection features 60 traditional and nontraditional artworks in diverse media by California artists. Themes represent water's recreational allure, beauty and transparency both realistically and abstractly. The images explore the impact and experience of water, from manufactured pools to natural waterways.

The 22 featured artists are John Budicin, D.J. Hall, Carolyn Hesse-Low, Margie Livingston, Joel Meyerowitz, Brad Miller, Stephen Mirich, Bobbie Moline-Kramer, Maria Luisa Morando, Elizabeth Patterson, Roxie Ray, Blakeney Sanford, Annie Seaton (whose "Big Surf" image is pictured here), Brooke Shaden, Bill Sosin, Rich Stich, Adam Thorman, Daena Title, Roger Weik, Daniel Wheeler, John Wimberley and Peter Zokosky. The collection is on loan from participating artists and fine art galleries throughout California.

The Carnegie Art Museum, 424 South C St., Oxnard, is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 1-5 p.m. Sundays. A donation of $3 is suggested. For more information, call 385-8157 or visit
