Gary Lopez is an astrophotographer whose exhibit, “The Light of the Universe,” is now on display at Gallery About (6th Avenue, Carmel). In a unique blend of art and science, Lopez creates images that bridge nature photography and abstract art. It shows the drama of star birth and death in the faintly bright clouds of space gas and dust called a nebula. “Distant objects in my images populate our night skies, but their dim light has taken centuries to reach us and is too faint to be seen with the naked eye,” Lopez wrote in an artist statement. “In my art, I strive to reveal the beauty and drama that is captured in this ancient dim light.” A part of his artistic approach can be unveiled during an artists’ reception from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday July 9.
