The stillness and serenity of summer's nearly upon us. Before you start munching on ice cubes and renouncing sleeves, know that the seasonal slow-down hasn't rendered your calendar empty. In fact, a new exhibition at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art embodies the type of summery static the coming months hold.

Bill Owens' “Suburbia” is a photographic examination of the American middle class. In 1973, the artist captured stills of everyday life throughout Northern California communities. It's a nostalgia-inducing collection of black-and-white shots showing both the boredom and beauty of the American Dream.

SMoCA's Summer Opening celebrates “Suburbia” and the museum's line-focused show, “Linear Thinking,” which features works from Angela Ellsworth and Mark Klett, among others. SMoCA Lounge's Tania Katan will present a pair of performances during the free reception, which is open to the public from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 23. Visit www.smoca.org or call 480-874-4666.
