Contemporary Art Galleries in La Jolla

Surveying art is an in-the-moment type of activity and it can be especially relevant when surveying contemporary pieces of art. Although we revere the old masters, there is something to be said for the art of the present, because current artwork is often refreshing and abstract. Contemporary art is a reflection of our world today. Blue Book and the community of La Jolla embraces modern innovators of art and furnishes plenty of space for observers to view their work and live in the moment.

The online dictionary defines fine arts as a visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, watercolors, graphics and architecture are all under this fine arts umbrella. True contemporary pieces portray original ideas about beauty and invite observers into a deep contemplation of life. There are two contemporary art galleries in La Jolla that meet these standards: the Contemporary Fine Arts Gallery and the Cosmopolitan Fine Arts Gallery both celebrate the latest 21st century fine arts.

Contemporary artists reach their audiences through a variety of mediums. Artwork featured in these galleries range from twisting sculptures to tiled murals, surreal installations and paneled paintings. The expansive collections of both the CFA and Cosmopolitan Gallery hold a wide variety of international artists. The contemporary style of these artists often challenge traditional art forms. Prepare to be shocked, amazed and impressed by the halls modern art highlighted in La Jolla's art galleries. These successful contemporary art galleries will occupy the curious mind with plenty of eye-catching pieces.
