FUNK ZONE PODCAST SET TO CELEBRATE 100 EPISODES WITH LIVE SHOW Nov. 18, 2016 fundraiser also benefits Slingshot

Santa Barbara, CA – On Friday, November 18, show creator Ted Mills will host the 100th episode of his popular arts interview podcast, The FunkZone Podcast, as a live event at live-work-art space, SBCAST.

Ted Mills has spent the last two years interviewing artists and creative people from Santa Barbara and beyond, in hour-long conversations about art and life and “why artists do what they do.” Even with limited promotion, the show has steadily grown, earning up to 250 listeners a day. Eighty percent of the audience comes from the United States (and 30 percent of those from the tri-county area). The FunkZone Podcast is doing its part to help Santa Barbara’s art scene become known nationally and internationally.

Previous guests have included: painters Jeremy Harper, Jill Sattler, Julie B. Montgomery, and Derek Harrison, musician Parry Gripp, artists R. Nelson Parrish and Nancy Gifford, curator Frank Goss, and many more, including authors, restauranteurs, comedians, directors, poets, and photographers.

The Live 100th Episode show will be presented in a talk show format, with surprise guests, music, and special video presentations. A silent auction will offer deals in art and in culture, while food, wine, and beer will be on sale.

Proceeds of the show will go to Slingshot, a 501c3 non-profit that gives artists with developmental disabilities a chance to create work, and SBCAST will be devoting one of its galleries that night to display and sell their art.

This promises to be a major night as Ted Mills looks back on the 100 plus guests he’s had on the show, how he’s created a historical record on the state of the arts in and around Santa Barbara, and raises money to take the show to the next level in the coming year.

Art at the JCC is a program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. Through its exhibition and outreach programs, Art at the JCChonors and shares the universality of Jewish values, history and culture through various forms of artistic expression. The purpose of Art at the JCC is to provide Central Coast and other artists from all disciplines the opportunity to bring their work to the Santa Barbara community. Because art is a universal language, our programs will cross all boundaries of religion, race, gender and age, and strive to maintain communication. Its mission is to promote identification and connectedness to the Jewish community and the community at large.

 

Artist and collector Eli Luria (z”l) launched Art at the JCC in 1999 to provide high-caliber, strongly-themed exhibits for the Santa Barbara community. The exhibit openings often feature gallery talks and panels with artists, curators and collectors that draw lively crowds.

ARTIST RECEPTION THIS SATURDAY

AUGUST 20, 2016 4:30-7:30 PM

KARL DEMPWOLF

IN PRAISE OF NATURE
In a rare solo exhibition, the work of Karl Dempwolf graces the walls of Distinctive Art Gallery from August 1−October 1, 2016.  Dempwolf has an extensive knowledge of California landscape art history which, coupled with his deep soulful tie to the land and sea, masterfully influences his own work. The resulting oil paintings are colorful, modern, expressive, painterly and thoroughly enticing.  Early California artists such as Wendt, Rose, Puthuff, Payne, Ritschel and Hassam are the artistic icons setting the tone and paving the way for this remarkably talented artist. Leaving nothing to chance, Dempwolf and craftsmen have hand-carved and gilded the frames to enhance and complement each piece.
