‘Liquid’ cube on display at OMA

OCEANSIDE — Artist Richard Gleaves’ eight-foot cube constructed from 19,000 feet of monofilament fishing line will be on display from Aug. 21 to Nov. 21 at Oceanside Museum of Art’s Parker Gallery, 704 Pier View Way. The exhibit is titled “Liquid.”
The cube creates what Gleaves calls “a tactile field of simulated liquid” that abstractly represents both the visual and tactile properties of water. Viewers are encouraged to not just look at the artwork, but also to walk through it and under it to experience the sensation of liquid.
Meet Gleaves at 2 p.m. Sept. 25 and hear him discuss the concept behind his new installation. The talk is free with admission and free for OMA members.
Contact Director of Exhibitions Teri Sowell for more information at or by calling (760) 435-3730.
