One of my favorite places to photograph is the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA. Every few months they feature an amazing new exhibit to inspire and excite patrons.
My favorite of all of the exhibits was Nathan Sawaya's Art of the Brick, for obvious reasons.
Nathan Sawaya is a famous Lego Artist, and as you can see he has earned that title.
He has built hundreds of pieces of art all made out of Lego bricks.
He built a variety of pieces from the ordinary to the abstract and the beautiful.
Some of the pieces stopped you in your tracks with amazing illusions.
The piece that took my breath away was "In Pieces".
It was truly magical.
The floating bricks were something out of a dream.
Sadly this exhibit was out last year, but you can see more on Nathan Sawaya on his website or in the Lego Brickumentary DVD.
The Bedford Gallery always has something amazing for all ages to see. Currently they are showing an exhibit called Sweet n Low which features work from over 130 local artists that ranges from cute and cuddly to creepy. I will be photographing the exhibit and featuring next week. You can go check it out for yourself now.
