GESTURES AND JUXTAPOSITIONS:

An exhibition of contemporary fine art collage

GraySpace Gallery, 219 Gray Avenue in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition of the abstract collages of Steven Gilbar and Angela Holland. Featuring small works on paper and a selection of larger mixed-media pieces on wood panel, the show runs from May 27th to July 10, 2016.

Steven Gilbar, the force behind Santa Barbara’s acclaimed Speaking of Stories, has applied his creative talents to collage over the past decade. He credits the architect Richard Meier and the pioneering work of German collagist Kurt Schwitters for his early influence. Gilbar’s work is characterized by strong compositional elements, subtle textures and an ever-changing, improvisational approach that brings in acrylic, oil pastels and ink. This will be the largest display to date of his work, which has appeared in numerous group exhibitions.
Angela Holland, a former educator and psychotherapist, found her identity as an artist when she began working in collage. Using an intuitive process, she seeks to create a sense of order from a disparate range of papers and images. Bold line and broken text appear alongside patterns and shapes rich in color and texture, creating dynamic juxtapositions. Her influences include Tapies and Rauschenberg, and among the living, Michael Cutlip and Fran Skiles. Holland is represented by Nisa Touchon Fine Art—Santa Fe, New Mexico. More of her work can be seen at www.angelahollandart.com.

Opening reception for the show will be Friday, May 27th, from 5-8pm. Wine and refreshments will be served.

GraySpace GallerySanta Barbara, CA – GraySpace is pleased to join the Funk Zone Arts District this summer as its newest art gallery. The gallery presents exhibitions of contemporary abstract art from artists working locally and beyond. Please join us on Friday, July 24th from 5-8pm during the Funk Zone Art Walk for the opening of our inaugural exhibition, 3 Melodies.
3 Melodies will feature local artists Charlene Broudy, Carolyn Fox and Steven Gilbar. Charlene Broudy works to create colorful abstractions in acrylic on panel and canvas. She has been working as a fine artist and designer, producing paintings inspired by the vibrancy of Costa Rica, where she and her husband created the resort hotel, Xandari. Immersed in painting the Ojai valley since the 1980’s, Carolyn Fox is also inspired by her surrounding landscape with its lush gardens, oak trees, and ring of tall arid mountains. Her new body of work, “Roller Paintings,” are the product of experimentation with a new process that allows for luxuriously wide, flowing lines of color, creating large curves and compositions. The paintings’ consistent interplay of cool and warm with intense and muted color possess an elemental feel of rock, water, sand, and sky. Steven Gilbar is a self-taught artist originally inspired by the collage of architect Richard Meyer. From there, his work evolved from collage into mixed media and finally painting. His process, while intuitive, continues to draw from the artists and history of those before him.

GraySpace welcomes the community to our gallery and hopes to see you at our grand opening. GraySpace Gallery is open Friday through Sunday from 12pm to 5pm and by appointment. We are located at 219 Gray Ave between Yanonali and Montecito Street.
For inquiries please contact us by phone at 805.886.0552 or by email at

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.

Now there’s a post title that should get some attention…

This event is so exciting I almost didn’t want to post about it for fear of hurting my chances of getting some artwork by a great artist without breaking the bank. Seriously though, I would never do that. Art from Scrap is too wonderful an organization to hold back from helping them raise some money. And clearly I am not alone in thinking this, the list of artists who have signed up for this event range from national and international stars such as Yoko Ono (seriously?!?), and Jeff Bridges; local superstars like Penelope GottliebAnn Diener and John Nava; old favorites from the Haley Collective like Yoskay Yamamoto J. Shea9, Tanner Goldbeck, and Larry Mills; and up-and-comers like Inga Guzyte and Zack Paul. It would not be a stretch to say that nearly everyone I have ever written about on this blog will be part of this show. And then there are all the other great artists that I haven’t mentioned.

The deal is that you don’t know who has done each piece until you drop the $200 bucks to buy it. So it pays to do your homework if you want something by a particular artist. For $100 bucks you can get in the door at 6:30 to get first pick, or wait until 7pm and get in for $20. But if you are at all interested in any of these artists it would be silly to wait until 7. Getting a piece of art for $300 bucks from any of these artists is a steal, and you’re helping Art From Scrap to boot.

All the info is listed below, but if you haven’t checked out the artist list you can find it here.  And make a note that this show is not at Art From Scrap. It will be at the Brooks Institute’s Gallery 27 at 27 West Cota St.

See you there.
