Photo lovers, beach visitors, social enterprise supporters: be sure to visit Hub LA and Red Pipe’s photography exhibition “Silent Waves” between April 5 and April 19!
Douglas I. Busch is a renowned photographer whose work has appeared at the Getty Museum, LACMA, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, among others. In this new exhibition, he explores light, color, and form through the digital medium – a marked transition for the artist who had previously been working with large format cameras. His stunning photographs in “Silent Waves” capture the ethereal sensation of watching waves roll in – that misty movement, the constantly changing light. Revealing the power of photography to distill moments of ever changing beauty, Busch’s work shows us how profoundly elemental yet completely complex the world around us – and representing that world through art – can be.
“Silent Waves” is running at Hub LA and Red Pipe Gallery in Chinatown concurrently. Red Pipe Gallery is a project of Menlo Social Enterprise Lab, a school for aspiring social entrepreneurs. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the photos at Red Pipe will go toward scholarships to Menlo Lab. At Hub LA, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Social Justice Learning Institute. SJLI is a nonprofit that works to improve the lives of urban communities of color through educational and community programs to help them achieve health and educational equality. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place April 5 at Red Pipe, and we’ll hold a closing reception at Hub LA on the 19th.
We’re also excited to announce that Mr. Busch has offered to sell the prints at a reduced price to Hub LA members. Save money while helping to save the community.
