If you haven’t ever visited the studio where TVSB is located, this is your chance. It is a non-traditional art space, to say the least. But that is part of what makes it so interesting, and absolutely worth a visit. unnamed

This week is a bit crazy, with both 1st Thursday the Funk Zone Artwalk happening back to back. Make sure to save some energy on Thursday so you have enough energy to walk around the Funk Zone on Friday night. I hope to see you out there.

Below is a show that opens on 1st Thursday. I’ll have more announcements forthcoming with Funk Zone events. Stay tuned.


unnamedLimited Palette Abstracts is a group art exhibition featuring works by Abstract Art Collective members. The AAC challenged its members to create an exhibit of artwork limited to three colors: black and white plus any one color. This challenge presented AAC members an opportunity to do more with less, to explore composition above color, to explore shapes and contrast. The result is a show with a cohesive quality where cohesiveness would not normally be apparent or inherent.

Artists’ Reception March 5, 5:00-8:00 pm, 1st Thursday reception upstairs at The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, located at 21 W. Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara.

The Limited Palette Abstracts exhibit will run through April 29, 2015

Show hours are Noon – 4pm, Wednesday through Sunday

CLOSING RECEPTION: SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014, 2:00-4:30 p.m

Abstract Art Collective
The Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara presents Art at the JCC with “VOICES,” an Abstract Art Collective Benefit for the San Marcos High School Performing Arts Department. The closing reception at the Bronfman Family Jewish Community Center, 524 Chapala St., features 8×8 inch original abstracts created and donated by AAC members, to be sold for $45 each on a first-come-first-choose basis. 100% of the proceeds benefit SMHS PAD.

The juried portion of the show includes over 70 pieces of larger original art. 30% of the sales proceeds from the juried pieces will be donated to the beneficiary. Juror for the exhibit is Jane Deering, owner/curator of the Jane Deering Contemporary Art Gallery.

Live music will be performed at the reception. Entertainment includes classical guitarist, Mike Witt. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.

The benefit supports, in part, the multi-faceted San Marcos High School Performing Arts Department, which boasts 5 choirs, a variety of bands, drum lines and ensembles. The department offers high quality education for students in the arts, while consistently providing professional quality concerts and theatre for their loyal following in the community. Their highly acclaimed San Marcos High School Madrigal Singers—under the direction of Carolyn Teraoka Brady—have garnered numerous awards at festivals and competitions.  In June the ensemble traveled to Italy to participate in a Z. Randall Stroope Festival and performed in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican.

The Abstract Art Collective is a group of Santa Barbara area community members who organized in 2011 to exhibit their abstract artwork in an all-abstract environment. The over 60-member group supports a broad range of mediums and adheres to a definition of abstract art that includes conceptual contemporary genres where some forms are recognizable. For information on joining the Abstract Art Collective or to receive announcements regarding exhibitions, please visit the web site: www.abstractartcollective.com or Facebook page: www.facebook.com/abstractartcollective.

The exhibit will be on display through August 19. For regular viewing hours, the Jewish Community Center is open Mon.-Thurs. 9-5 pm, Fri. 9-3:30 pm. For best visiting hours call
