California Photography

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Beth Yarnelle Edwards: Suburban Dreams, the second exhibition in OMCA's new California Photography series, features approximately 20 large-scale color photographs, including works from OMCA's collection and select loans from the artist. Fascinated with the relationships between people, their living spaces, and their possessions, the San Francisco-based photographer began photographing in the suburbs of Silicon Valley in 1997, where she had lived for years. Collaborating with her subjects to re-create scenes from their daily lives, Edwards creates carefully posed depictions of domestic scenarios revealing how people behave in their homes.

Resembling film stills, the photographs embody the American Dream as it is often represented in the Valley-natural beauty intersecting with high-tech industry, a diverse yet predominately affluent population, and access to nearby cultural epicenters. The resulting images lie somewhere between the mythic and mundane. Edwards's photographs have been exhibited and published frequently, both nationally and internationally, and her work resides in numerous public collections, including the Oakland Museum of California, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

On view in OMCA's Gallery of California Art, the exhibition is part an ongoing series exploring contemporary topics in California through photography. The third exhibition, Peter Stackpole: Bridging the Bay (July 20 - December 2013), features stunning black-and-white photographs of the original San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge construction by one of LIFE magazine's first staff photographers.
