In the four years since I started this blog I have posted info on shows at a vast number of different venues, many of which aren’t around any more. However, in all that time I don’t believe I’ve posted more than a couple of times about the Elizabeth Gordon Gallery. The simple fact that it is still around and has made it through the recession is reason enough to give congratulations, so I’m happy to send along the following invitation for their upcoming show. Make sure to mark your calendars and check it out.

“She and Him” by America Martin

You’re invited to the Elizabeth Gordon Gallery from January 19th through February 19th to view the solo exhibition of the young and talented artist America Martin. The show will open with a cocktail reception in honor of the artist on January 19th from 6 to 9 pm. The gallery will feature America’s latest paintings – many influenced by the sea and full of vibrant colors. America is incorporating color themes into each of her 2013 shows. For the Santa Barbara show, the color scheme is based on an orange color palette. America selected orange because it is a happy, bold color, and one of her favorite colors – in parallel with Santa Barbara being one of her favorite cities in the world. America is known for using acrylics, oil, oil sticks, and charcoal. The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery has been a long time supporter of America Martin and is thrilled to have her talented work in their relaxed environment again. To learn more about America Martin, visit http://elizabethgordongallery.com/, or stop by the gallery at 15 West Gutierrez, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

6-8 pm
Elizabeth Gordon Gallery
15 W. Gutierrez, Santa Barbara, CA 91301

Open: November 10th – December 9th

Vani Winick, SBHS senior art student, transports the remnants of her installation, “The Glass Forest” to the Elizabeth Gordon Gallery. This installation was first created in the woods of Narragansett, Rhode Island, where upon finding the earthen floor littered with glass bottles, she hung 131 bottles from tree branches in an environmental installation that transformed the forest.

She has filled the Gallery window with branches and some of the original glass bottles hang in front of her photographs and light paintings. She also wrote a poem featuring her project, which is on display, and her video will be played during the reception on December 6th.

About Vani Winick:
