Jordan and Sandra Laby bought their first weekend home in Ventura 28 years ago, when a night out at the theater usually meant an hourlong drive. "When we moved to Ventura, one of the things we didn't have was theater or music," said Jordan Laby, an inventor of products ranging from swimming-pool cleaners to anesthesia equipment. "If you wanted to have cultural entertainment, you had to drive somewhere else."

A photographer and printmaker with a fondness for extending her media, she likes to take banal, everyday source materials and turn them into what she calls "cyanotype mandalas." These are kaleidoscopic hyper-images that spin off the meditative tradition of Tibetan mandalas, using the blueprint-like cyanotype process.
