Not to be missed this month at Laguna Beach’s Peter Blake Gallery are new paintings by Andy Moses, whose works explore the visual and emotional relationships between natural elements. Moses stretches his canvases over concavely curved armatures, thus giving them a three-dimensional twist that plays to the artist’s stratified visual vocabulary reminiscent of shifting horizons, light-drenched beaches, and more.

Also at Blake’s gallery right now is Robert Porte, who is known for painting some of the most intriguing oceanscapes on the West Coast (despite the fact that he’s based out of Montana). His paintings on copper or aluminum panels play counterpoint to Moses’ geometric compositions. Daniella Walsh
