In?fleur?essence: Rob Outwater & Gabrielle McKenna

Rob Outwater, Photography: A rose may be a rose, but no two are seen alike in this new exhibition. As captured by photographer Rob Outwater, flowers radiate beauty in this stunning display of 3D Digital Lenticular prints and traditional ink-jet prints. Visceral and surprising, the Lenticular process created in the 1940s provides an illusion of movement in static images. Viewed from different angles, the 3D images appear and change depending on the viewer’s position.

Gabrielle McKenna, Paintings: Looming larger and more intimate than in real life, the floral paintings of Gabrielle McKenna push the classical boundaries of “still life.” Vivid, deeply colored and felt, these paintings reflect Gabrielle’s “outward expression of her interior experience.” A fine artist since high school, her work has been displayed in galleries from Soho to Santa Fe to West Hollywood.

Center Honored by Cong. Brad Sherman

U.S. Congressman Brad Sherman, 27th District, Calif., has presented a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition to the Huntington Learning Center in honor of its 15th anniversary in Encino. This coincides with the upcoming 35th anniversary of the nationwide network of 300 Huntington Learning Centers, the first provider of supplemental education services of its kind in the United States.

Congressman Sherman issued the certificate “in recognition of outstanding and invaluable service to the community.”

This recognition comes on top of similar proclamations from Congressman Howard Berman and LA Councilmember Paul Koretz to mark the 15th anniversary of Huntington Learning Center in Encino. This kudos reflects the recognition that supplemental education programs such as provided by Huntington have a major impact on the education of children in both the public and private sector.
