There is some strange confluence between skateboarding and art that seems to produce a whole lot of artwork that I completely love. Which is a bit ironic since I’ve never been on a skateboard once in my life. I guess I should just start a collection of original art on skate decks…

Anyhow, This show looks amazing, and I think skate parks are beneficial to most communities. If my young son decides one day to take up skateboarding, he will certainly have my full support. So in the humble opinion of this art blogger, this show is a win-win. Details below.

The Carpinteria Skate Park Foundation will be hosting it’s first Skate Art Show to benefit construction of the Carpinteria Skate Park.

When: Friday, June 3rd, 2016 from 5pm – 9pm
Where: Lucky Llama, 5100 Carpinteria Ave, Carpinteria, CA 93013
What: Skateboard Art Show with 50 local and international artists from both skate and surf industries.  Artists include, PRO surfer Dane Reynolds, PRO skaters JJ Wessels, Brian Bent, Mitch Abshere, Chase Stopnik and local artists Benjamin Anderson, Randy Noborikawa and Sean Anderson.

The community is invited to a FREE fun-filled evening with live music, food, drinks, friends, and fundraising.  There will be a silent auction, live music by AFishNSea, Beer from Island Brewing Co., Wine by Sarloos and Sons and food by Uncle Chen’s.  All proceeds benefit the Carpinteria Skate Foundation, an all-volunteer Non-Profit organization whose mission is to bring a public skate park to Carpinteria.

It’s time to start gearing up for 1st Thursday this week. There are a lot of rare occasions this month including the show below. This is a location that is going to be new to most of you and it might be one of your only chances to check it out,  so it is an absolute must. Not to mention that the work there is by one of my favorite young artists in town, a name that long-time blog readers will no doubt recognize, Sean Anderson. I hadn’t ever heard of The Big Idea, but given the socially-minded efforts of Anderson’s past shows, it is no surprise. Make sure to check out their video HERE.

There will be lots more to come about this Thursday, so stay tuned.

I’ve been holding back on this one until the craziness of Fiesta was over. Hopefully you saved some energy for this Saturday, which has the serious possibility of being the biggest local art event of the year. I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said that last year’s event was a mad house. I paid extra for the early admission, and it was worth every penny. Not only did it go to a great cause, but I ended up with one of my most treasured pieces in my art collection.

Get there early. See you there.

It has been a while since I’d heard any rumblings from down in Carpinteria, so I was very excited when the following press release landed in my inbox. For those of you who don’t know it yet, down in that wonderfully sleepy little beach town, tucked away off the main drag there is an oasis of contemporary art. This new exhibit/installation is exactly the kind of thing that make the place so interesting. There is a kind of freedom that is inherent in experimenting like this, and it makes me very happy to know that this is going on near by. This is not the kind of thing we get to see around here very often, soI highly encourage you to take advantage of our proximity to the Anderson ART Collective.

Opening Reception: March 31st from 5 – 9. More details below.

Lived-in at the Anderson ART Collective“Lived-in at the Anderson ART Collective”

Santa Barbara (CA) – 20th March 2012.  Anderson ART Collective (www.andersonARTcollective.com) presents “Lived-In”, a new concept pop-up show presenting a collection of new work by artist/designer couple Sean Anderson and Kimie Rosenthal.  The opening kicks off on Saturday March 31st from 5pm – 9pm where there will be an opportunity to meet both artists, explore their space and enjoy an evening of live music and drinks.

Creating a livable environment to view the work, the show will be a departure from a ‘white cube’ gallery setting converting the Anderson Art Collective into a warm lived-in boutique-like space.  The artists will be “living” in the gallery through Sunday April 15th during gallery hours, Friday through Sunday from noon to 5:00pm.

According to the couple, “We want to create a space that reflects our aesthetics, both artistically and practically and encourage gallery goers to come and experience a day in the life of what we do and how we do it.”

Sean Anderson’s (www.seananderson.com) paintings speak to the importance and  beauty in the basics of everyday life, depicting simple structures and natural environments painted with a vibrant palette borrowed from modern commercialism. Anderson’s paintings and sculpture have been exhibited at the Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard as well as Sullivan Goss Gallery, Santa Barbara. A solo exhibition of his work can also be seen at Firehouse30 Gallery in Walla Walla, Washington in May of this year.

Designer, Kimie Rosenthal, owner/creator and stylist of The October Union (www.theoctoberunion.com) promotes recycle-conscious fashion with an emphasis on unique style that is inherent in everyone. Believing that everyone should all have an awareness for what they wear. 

The October Union, in addition to vintage and pre-loved clothing, also produces 100% natural handmade perfumes, bath and beauty products through their line “Alkimie’. A select collection of new and vintage clothing in addition to jewelry and an array of ‘Alkimie’ products will be available at the show.

Anderson ART Collective is located at 410 Palm Avenue, Unit A2, in Carpinteria.  The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5pm or by appointment. The gallery features contemporary artwork and is a platform to promote the arts, to protect the environment and to support human rights. For more information please visit www.andersonARTcollective.com or call 805.684.8783.
