What’s Hot: May 4 through 10:

SkyScapes Opening Reception

Thursday, May 10, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Annenberg Community Beach House

Artists Lita Albuquerque, Bruria Finkel, and Chris Garland celebrate the open spaces and changeable vistas of the sky. Lita Albuquerque says: “In an urban environment, the place where you can get in touch with the awesome aspect of the sky is in open spaces such as the desert or the space over the ocean. It is easy to raise one’s head and look up at the sky, but we seldom do this. The sky, at its best on a clear day, is just blue or gray. It becomes an exciting environment when clouds create interesting configurations and change their color in the morning dawn—or sunset skies where the color appears. During the day the clouds create an amazing environment that is constantly changing with the force of the wind.” Runs through Aug. 12. No reservations required. Gallery open daily 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during exhibit. annenbergbeachhouse.com, 310.458.4904
