The seaside fun and cultural center that is the Annenberg Beach House is home to many fine-weather amenities, but this weekend it's the gallery space rather than the swimming pool that's the destination, as the four-person exhibition "Life in This Ocean" opens with a special afternoon artists reception. Each of the artists — Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman, Kathy Taslitz, Donna Bates and Lena Rushing — employs a distinct and unconventional technique, from mixed-media assemblage to old-school egg tempera, in modes of pop surrealism and political inflection. With portraits and landscapes that evoke and deconstruct what life in L.A. is like at its prettiest, most volatile, challenging and inspirational, "Life in This Ocean" explores the ways in which living here influences how we see ourselves.
