“My artworks are a reflection of my ongoing search for meaning.
I rely on beauty and the act of seeing to explore, question, and
reinterpret the way that we perceive the world. For many years I
lived near the ocean. It heartened me to watch the common ritual performed by individuals as they approached the water’s edge.”

–Jim Vecchi

This exhibition presents large scale and sublime color panoramas
of anonymous individuals standing at the ocean’s edge.
