The City of Santa Clarita is excited to welcome two new art exhibits to our community. “Dancing Leaf Spirits” by Jason Jenn is available to view in the Town Center Art Space now through Oct. 15. “Nature of Love” by Pablo Azar is featured at the Jo Anne Darcy Canyon Country Library through Oct. 28.

Jason Jenn’s “Dancing Leaf Spirits” features artwork that utilizes leaves and other natural materials embellished in metallic-leaf to create a style reminiscent of mandalas. The organic materials are pinned upon the walls in ancient geometric patterns to help focus the mind for the art of meditation. Jenn aims to re-establish a connection between the natural world, gallery space and the viewer. In addition to visiting the gallery, the public also has the opportunity to join a reception for the artwork on Aug. 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Town Center Art Space, enjoying discussion and light refreshments throughout the event.

Pop surrealist artist Pablo Azar introduces the public to his very unique painting style, titled “Toonymania,” in the upcoming “Nature of Love” art exhibit. His main objective is to make each observer gaze upon his artwork, losing themselves in a timeless dimension to discover what Pablo denotes as “his creatures.”
