This very special exhibit will feature some of Santa Barbara’s most accomplished, life-long, professionals in the visual arts. Nine artists will each exhibit one current work alongside one vintage work that is at least 20 years old. The work was chosen to examine and demonstrate how style, vision, and content may or may not have evolved over time. The exhibit will include stunning hyper-realistic work by Churchill-Johnson—stark political statement contrasted with delicate, minimalist abstraction by Uyesaka—deeply engaging abstract oils by Scorzelli— dynamic and powerful ceramic insights by Rosenberg-Dent—fanciful, abstract adventures by Lehrer—an unsettling mixed-media installation with video by auto-expressionist, Metrov—striking figurative vs abstract works by Ferris—a lively “abolish blandness” painting by Lytle contrasted with fabulous yarn work from the early 90’s—and a pair of McCracken’s, always delightful, miniatures.

To experience an unprecedented perspective of Central California’s true Contemporary Fine Art achievements, this is a must-attend show.

A public reception will be held in the gallery on the evening of Friday, May 27 from 5:00-8:00pm during the Funk Zone Art Walk. The exhibition will be held at The Arts Fund Gallery, located at 205-C Santa Barbara Street, and will be on view until July 16, 2016. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday from 12-5pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
