Artist Talk Friday, November 20th

Please join us for an artist talk at The Arts Fund Gallery, located at 205-C Santa Barbara Street, on the evening of Friday, November 20th from 6-7pm. Discussing their work will be featured artists Tom Pazderka, George Sanders, Ro Snell, curator Charles Donelan, and moderator Ted Mills.

About Unintended Consequences
Every day we face the fact that even our smallest actions may have consequences that we don’t intend. Just because we can’t foresee these unintended consequences does not mean that we no longer feel responsible for them. Fortunately that’s not always bad news–unexpected benefits are as much a part of this picture as are unexpected drawbacks.

The artists in Unintended Consequences all work with this idea of the unintended consequence as a core aspect of their practice. Their art mines accumulations of unexpected results to gain perspective on both the original intentions that seem to have gone astray and the fresh opportunities these accidents create.

The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, December 5th. Regular gallery hours are WednesdaySunday from 12-5pm.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Bloom Projects: Ro Snell, All that is left

On View: September 29 – December 8

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 28, 6 – 8pm

Join us for the opening of Call For Entries 2013: Julia Hickey, M. Helsenrott Hochhauser, Katy McCarthy, Marco Pinter, and Christopher Ulivo and Bloom Projects:Ro Snell, All that is left.

MCASB showcases five stand-out artists from the tri-counties in our annual Call For Entries (CFE) group exhibition, an opportunity that invites artists to present newly commissioned work in the galleries.

 

Santa Barbara-based artist Ro Snell has created a new body of work for MCASB’s Fall 2013 iteration of Bloom Projects. All that is left examines what remains, both physical and abstract, after a process or a period of time. Using assembled objects, re-contextualized organic forms, and combined printed images, the installation considers perception, disintegration, emotion, and recollection.

I know that the biggest 1st Thursday of the entire year is only a few days away, but don’t go and wear yourself out because there are three more art openings the very next evening in the Funk Zone. All three are within two blocks of each other and each one has it’s own unique offerings.  This is exactly the kind of great collaboration that can help turn the Funk Zone into the central hub of contemporary arts in Santa Barbara. Head out on Friday night and be part of it.  See you out there.

Art Zone SB: Three Funk Zone Art OpeningsArt Zone SB: Three Funk Zone Art Openings

The Arts Fund in collaboration with Wall-Space Gallery and Michael Kate is pleased to announce the three gallery opening: ART ZONE SB on Friday, December 7, 2012.

The three galleries are all located within walking distance on Yanonali Street in the Funk Zone.

The Arts Fund presents THE ZONE 3-D: Donald Davis, Blake Rankin, Ro Snell, Xarene Eskandar, Skye Gwilliam, and Tom Long. The Arts Fund is located at 205C Santa Barbara Street at Yanonali and will be showcasing the three-dimensional works of funk z

one artists in The Zone 3-D.

Wall Space presents Lindsey Ross: Open Studio. Lindsey will set up her Photobooth to create one of a kind Collodion portrait. Commonly known as Tin Types, these photographs are handmade objects using traditional darkroom materials on a metal plate. These one of a kind unique objects are exposed in an antique camera, rinsed in darkroom chemicals and hardened and sealed for an archival print. Join us for an evening of creativity. Openings are still available for portrait sittings. The cost for a sitting is $95 per Tin Type, timed within one 20 minute sitting, ending with a unique 5×7 inch plate for each pose. If you need a unique Christmas gift for yourself, or for someone you care for, this would be a great way to support a local Santa Barbara creative artist, as well as have a one of a kind object to treasure.

For more information about Lindsey Ross, to schedule a portrait session or contact wall space gallery please call 805.637.3898 or email at gallery@wall-spacegallery.com. Wall space gallery is located at 116 East Yanonali Street C-1.

Michael Kate will be hosting a show featuring four artists from Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Local Santa Barbara artists Dug Uyesaka and Dara Mark will show alongside Los Angeles artists Gary Palmer and Sheldon Figoten. Both Uyesaka and Mark will exhibit works alongside that are emphasized with particular mark-making. An implied sense of movement or motion on their two-dimensional planes delineates one space from another. Palmer and Figoten are well-known on the Los Angeles art scene and have shown extensively in Los Angeles, New York and in Europe.
