Healthy living and art merge in a new exhibit opening on June 10 at Beach Cities Health District in Redondo Beach.

In Motion: The Human Body in Movement,  incorporates the work of 65 artists from  the South Bay and beyond, presenting their best works in all media, including photography, oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, clay, wood, metal, and jewelry – with the body in motion as the focus.  Surfing, dance, exercise, people working are featured in a diverse, eclectic collection of contemporary works.

This juried exhibit, curated by Nina Zak Laddon and Stefani Conniff, includes 109 artworks created by outstanding artists.  Laddon says,  “art takes care of the wellness of our souls and minds and creates a complete well person.”  Even poetry is incorporated into the concept, with works incorporating all kinds of movement.

Frolicking, vaulting, bouncing and prancing,

swaying, swirling , fluttering and dancing,

undulating, pulsating, rising and traversing,

swarming, sprawling, arching, and halting,

slumping, crouching, fizzling and vanishing
