Dried leaves, crackled mud and ice are extraordinary up close in Brett Weston: Land, Sea and Sky, a collection of work by the famous photographer on exhibit through June 1 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Weston was the son of photographer Edward Weston and, at a young age, he fell under the influence of such artists as Diego River, Jose Clemente Orozco and Tina Modotti. In his own work, he turned everyday objects and phenomena into abstract curiosities through his camera by picking up fine details in nature and landscapes. The works are part of a 150-piece collection gifted to the museum from Christian Keesee. The museum, located at 415 S. Couch Dr., Oklahoma City, is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (until 9 p.m. Thursday) and Sunday from noon-5 p.m. Tickets are $10-$12. For more, visit
