I'm thrilled to be participating in the following 2 exhibitions this January...
Out of the Great Wide Open
Museum of Contemporary Art, Santa Barbara
Opening Reception: Saturday, Jan. 24th 6-8pm
Exhibit dates: Jan. 24th - March 29th, 2015
Each year, the Museum collaborates with regional artists who support and participate in its programs, and with those new to the area interested in taking part in activities that stimulate dialogue and critical thinking on contemporary art. As an opportunity to recognize these artists’ innovative, experimental, and skillful work, MCASB organizes its 8th annual tri-county Call For Entries artist exhibition in the museum’s main galleries, this year titled Out of the Great Wide Open. The series reveals new explorations into the vibrancy of our creative terrain, having involved artists whose varied practices include performance, visual arts, writing, design, and fashion-oftentimes expanding their medium, materials, and research in remarkable ways.
The artists in the 2015 exhibition include Ryan Bulis (Santa Barbara), Cathy Ellis (Goleta),Wendy Osher (Ojai), Erik ReeL (Ventura), Sommer Roman (Santa Barbara), Nick Wilkinson(Los Osos), and Seyburn Zorthian (Solvang).
