"At the Beach" paintings and photographs by Iriet Peshkess closes


The Newport Beach City Arts Commission presents an exhibition of mixed media paintings and digital photography by artist Iriet Peshkess, on display at the Newport Beach Central Library gallery. The works capture the essence of life along the shores of Newport Beach.

Iriet Peshkess was born in Israel and has lived in Orange County with her family since 1981. She is a California-inspired representational artist and a storyteller in paint and photography. Before embarking on her career as an artist over 15 years ago, Peshkess was a psychologist. People’s stories have always moved her, and she strives to capture mood and story rather than detail. Her stories describe daily life in the California sun.

Iriet Peshkess works in mixed media — digital, acrylic and fiber, and photography — moving back and forth between them. Her creative process always goes through the digital medium. At what stage and to what extend varies in each painting.

The exhibition will be on display during library operating hours, September 10 through November 2, 2018.
