The Architectural Vision of
Harry Gesner:

April 28- June 2nd,  2012

The Architectural Vision of Harry Gesner  MLY Gallery Exhibit and Book Signing April 2012
Please view the Documentary Film HERE
Houses of the Sundown Sea:The Architectural Vision of Harry Gesner By Lisa Germany, New Photography by Juergen Nogai –  "My basic philosophy and approach to architecture is from somewhere primeval. It comes from the heart as well as the head." Harry Gesner

"Houses of Sundown Sea: 
The Architectural Vision of Harry Gesner"

 by Lisa Germany and new photography by 
Juergen Nogai, based on the captivating life 
journey of one of California's most legendary architects, Harry Gesner. Harry Gesner draws inspiration from nature and the energy of 
having lived by the ocean in Malibu all his life. 
Gesner, an avid surfer, whose Malibu 
Wave House has given inspiration to such architectural icons  as the Sydney Opera House, describes his experience in 1956, sketching the ideas right onto his balsa-board with a grease pencil, sitting out in the ocean facing the beach 
where he camped for a few nights to get 
to know the elements. 

The book signing event took place from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery. MLY invites the Malibu community and beyond to join in celebration of the life of Harry Gesner and his great contribution to modern architecture. 

The exhibition of the same name will continue at MLY Gallery will through June

Mary Wright:  ELEMENTS
Over 250 Mixed media & Watercolor works.
Exhibition conceived & curated by : Seda Saar

Mary Wright opens the inner portals to nature in her solo exhibit ELEMENTS- 
at the new Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery. Committed to what she calls ‘environmental sanity’ all her life, she achieves Zen-like clarity in her mixed media watercolors, taking us on an unmistakable journey, through Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, reconstructing the circle of life. Wright uses
found-objects, elements from the land, natural and man-made that mimic nature. Sometimes these are remains of objects processed and conceived by natural forces such as fire and water, other times they are simple skeletons of natural life-forms, elements from the sea and sand, sky and air; common elements 
surrounding our daily lives. 
In ‘AIR’ Wrights silk paintings are complex 
portals to cosmic grace, allowing the 
unsettled eye to discover a myriad of faint textures and nuances that draw the viewer
 into a meditative, blissful trance. Some hang from the ceiling, floating in space like the 
element of air that encapsulates them,
 allowing the movement to float into a
 tunnel, as if this possibly were the portal to another world. Woven into the serene 
landscape of Water are the silent brushstrokes
 of the inhabitants of earth- at once primal and futuristic, promoting us to contemplate the time continuum and our place in the web of life – Water element composing most of us and the planet…Interchangeable by abstraction.
