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.

2015 Spring Teen Arts Mentorship Group Exhibition Opening

June 26 – July 18, 2015

The Arts Fund is pleased to announce the opening of the Spring 2015 Teen Arts Mentorship Group Exhibition on Friday, June 26, 2015. The exhibition will be held at The Arts Fund Gallery, located at 205-C Santa Barbara Street, and will be on view through July 18th, 2015. A public reception will be held in the gallery on the evening of Friday, June 26th from 5:00-7:00 pm. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday from 12-5pm.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Twenty-Five students studying the disciplines of Painting, Drawing and Photography will be featured on the walls of the gallery, curated by their peers who have participated in a Curatorial mentorship class.  For the first time a catalog of works from the spring mentorship classes has been produced and is available for purchase to support the creative programming The Arts Fund brings to the Santa Barbara community each year.

For 20 years, this unique arts enrichment program has offered promising teenage artists the opportunity to work closely with local professional master artists in a studio environment. Working in small groups of no more than 10, students receive specialized training, produce portfolio-quality work, gain insight into future careers in creative fields, and participate in a group exhibition in a professional gallery.  The Teen Arts Mentorship Group Exhibition represents the culmination of students’ work in this program by introducing them to the process of preparing and displaying art in a public venue.

2015’s spring mentorship classes included Old Master’s Painting with Pamela Larsson-Toscher, Draw to Explore: Journaling and the Artistic Process with Julie B. Montgomery, Alternative Process Photography with Joyce Wilson, Gallery and Curatorial Studies with Crista Dix, and Public Murals with John Hood.

The 2015 Spring Teen Arts Mentorship Group Exhibition will feature students from Anacapa School, Carpinteria High School, Dos Pueblos High School, San Marcos High School, Santa Barbara High School, Santa Ynez High School, Crane Country Day School, Garden Street Academy, Notre Dame, Providence Hall, and Goleta Valley Junior High.

Coming up this summer will be mentorships: Stainless Steel Sculpture with Nathan Snyder, Storytelling: The Mechanics of Creative Writing with Benjamin Sutherland, Alternative Process Photography with Joyce Wilson, Historic Plein Air Painting withThomas Van Stein, Drawing: Creating a Series with Rafael Perea De La Cabada. The exhibition following these mentorship programs will be on the walls this fall.

The Teen Arts Mentorship Program is made possible by the generosity of the Morris B. Squire Foundation, the Santa Barbara Foundation, the Ann Jackson Family Foundation, Claudia and David Chapman, Change Happens Foundation, Gracie Charitable Foundation, Towbes Foundation, Ove W. Jorgensen Foundation, Looker Foundation, Wood-Claeyssens Foundation, Daniel and Dianne Vapnek, Richard and Maryan Schall, and Bob and Christine Emmons.  For more information on the Teen Arts Mentorship Program, other Arts Fund programs and how to support, please call The Arts Fund at (805) 965-7321 or send an email to info@artsfundsb.org.
