SB Museum of Art Travel Lecture Series Returns

CELEBRATING THE PIVOTAL ROLE TRAVEL PLAYS within our understanding of the world and art, historian Nigel McGilchrist will relaunch the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Travel Lecture Series for a three-day tour spanning January 18th through the 20th.

Hosted in honor of the Travel Lecture Series’ 50th anniversary, McGilchrist’s talks will reassess travel with a perspective informed by the pandemic, history, and a hopeful look toward the future.

“I hope it will really open their eyes to the importance of travel, and travel not just for purely pleasure seeking,” shared McGilchrist, who has worked with SBMA for 20 years, leading tours in Europe, Asia, and North Africa. “That’s one kind of relaxation that we need, but there’s a different kind of travel which is intelligent and helps us open our minds and understand how other cultures think, how we think... One great American, Mark Twain, said ‘one must travel to learn,’ and he’s absolutely right.”

The series kicks off with a voyage to Greece, as McGilchrist discusses his book When the Dog Speaks, the Philosopher Listens at 4pm on Wednesday, January 18th. As an academic living in Greece and specializing in ancient Greece, McGilchrist has guided numerous Santa Barbara community members as they explore the region’s art and culture. His book focuses on the philosopher Pythagoras, who was himself an avid traveler. Drawing upon this detail, McGilchrist will examine the importance of Pythagoras and ancient Greece for scientific thinking, along with the value of travel as a means of learning how other cultures think.

Venice is next on the itinerary, as McGilchrist presents Venice & the Veneto at 10am on Thursday, January 19th. Held in anticipation of SBMA’s upcoming September trip to Venice, the talk will review the city’s hinterlands, or Veneto, which stretches to the west and north. A source of agriculture, McGilchrist will discuss how this region’s geography and relationship to Venice impacted its art, architecture, and how that in turn shaped American architecture.

The series will conclude with reflection on memories and the future course of travel as SBMA Travel Leader Susie Orso joins McGilchrist for A Conversation Between Cherished SBMA Travel Leaders at 10am on Friday, January 20th. Longtime tour-planning partners with SBMA, the duo has become popular among Santa Barbara globetrotters for their informative, engaging trips.

“We’re looking at some of the journeys we’ve made, what we can do in the future,” explained McGilchrist. “And what the pandemic meant for all of us as a community of travelers, how it changed our feelings about things, how it changed the nature of travel, changed our sense of urgency about travel — because we realized after the pandemic that it is not something we can take for granted.”

All lectures will take place within SBMA’s Mary Craig Auditorium. For tickets ($10 members, $15 general) visit https://tickets.sbma.net

Community Members Named Goleta’s Finest

HONORING THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE MEANINGFULLY ENHANCED THE GOLETA COMMUNITY, the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce honored the 2022 Goleta’s Finest award winners at a classy celebration on December 17th at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara. A 72-year-old tradition, Goleta’s Finest recognizes remarkable community members who have given back through volunteer and professional efforts.

“The Goleta community has a rich history of volunteerism and philanthropy, and we are eager to honor those individuals and organizations who have made such remarkable impacts in the community,” said Kristen Miller, President & CEO of the Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of Commerce.

The 2022 Goleta’s Finest honorees:

Woman of the Year – Sachi Thompson: The General Manager of Global Hardware at Curvature, Thompson is a longtime community advocate who, in addition to being a wife, mother, and board member for several non-profits, has volunteered many hours for special events and causes. Thompson’s empathetic approach to management inspires her employees to be great in all aspects of their lives and has instilled a philanthropic attitude at Curvature.

Man of the Year – Brian Borgatello: Borgatello is the current president of MarBorg industries, a multi-generational business with nearly 500 employees. Raised to value service and community, Borgatello has supported local schools, hospitals, non-profits, and local individuals doing good work. Gracious and reliable, Borgatello offers an example of community commitment and corporate responsibility.

Lifetime Achievement Recognition – Jean Blois: 90 year-old Blois has dedicated her life to improving Goleta. As one of the charter members of the Goleta City Council, Blois helped form the City of Goleta, and served as mayor in 2004. She recently helped with the Goleta Old Town Holiday Parade, and still works every day to improve the City of Goleta and its community.

Educator of the Year – Dare Holdren: Holdren has filled many roles as a 20 year veteran of the Santa Barbara Unified School District, including assistant principal of Dos Pueblos High School, principal of Solvang School, and coach of the San Marcos High School football team, for which he won Channel League Coach of the Year. Now principal of San Marcos, Holdren’s leadership in Goleta high schools has made a significant impact on the local community.

Students of the Year – Aaliyah and Bella Rubio: Sisters Aaliyah and Bella created a remarkable opportunity for local youth to learn more about entrepreneurship and focusing their creativity by founding the Youth Maker’s Market. Both passionate students, they have successfully created a platform for local

youth artisans to safely sell their wares and connect with families, neighbors, and visitors.

Volunteer of the Year – Jack Turney: Turney has dedicated 18 years of involvement with Cottage Hospital, and over 5,111 hours of service as a volunteer. A member of the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation Board, he has supported Fun in the Sun, gift shop sales at GVCH, and helped with annual events like the Senior Expo. Turney is the current leader of the hospital volunteer program, where he started in 2011.

Innovator of the Year – Santa Barbara County Co-Response Team: Formed in partnership between the Sheriff’s department and County Behavioral Sciences Unit, the Santa Barbara County Co-Response teams are intended to de-escalate individuals in crises, divert them from the criminal justice system, connect them directly with care, and provide follow-up after the crises have subsided. Their ten-hour work days have contributed a significant amount of support to the community.

Non-Profit Organization of the Year – Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network: The Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network opened the doors to their 5,400 square-foot Wendy McCaw Wildlife Hospital in Goleta in February 2022. This allows the nonprofit to keep more patients from initial intake to release rather than transferring patients to partners. For over 30 years, the SBWCN has been saving and helping animals along the South Coast, as well as educating the public about the challenges facing local wildlife and effective steps they can take to ensure the health and survival of wildlife.

Special Recognition Award – Goleta Lemon Festival Volunteer Committee: Made up of 13 local leaders, the Goleta Lemon Festival Volunteer Committee was essential to the festival’s return for its 29th year. With over 200 volunteers to ensure the event runs efficiently, the 13 members of the Lemon Festival Volunteer Committee are involved at all stages of planning, including set-up and tear-down. Most have been members for years, with some having volunteered for over ten years.

Area Community Projects to Receive Over $16 Million in Federal Funding A

GRAND TOTAL OF $16,651,540 IN DIRECT FEDERAL FUNDING will soon be made available to community projects across Santa Barbara County. The funding was included in the omnibus spending package that was sent to President Biden by the U.S. House of Representatives the day before Christmas Eve.

Specifically, these funds will support upgrades to public spaces in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Lompoc, as well as support the expansion of Highway 101 carpool lanes.

“As the Central Coast’s Representative, my first and foremost responsibility is to deliver real results for our communities and its residents – and today I’m proud to do that again by delivering nearly $17 million for Santa Barbara County to support projects that will improve our quality of life,” said Representative Salud Carbajal, who specifically requested funding for Central Coast projects through the House Appropriations Committee.

“With these funds, we will be able to make critical upgrades that will reduce traffic, renovate public spaces, and improve access to food and clean water across the Central Coast,” he continued.

The full list of supported Santa Barbara County projects include:

$7,000,000 for the construction of one of the two remaining sections of carpool lane expansion on U.S. Highway 101 between Santa Barbara and Ventura.

$2,000,000 to help fund the acquisition and retrofit of a new building to serve as an upgrade location for the Orcutt Branch Library in Orcutt.

$1,500,000 to fund part of the total costs of the full-scale renovation of Dwight Murphy Field in Santa Barbara, including a brand new 36,000 squarefoot playground.

$1,500,000 to support the retrofitting of the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s new south county warehouse in Goleta.

$1,384,040 to help Santa Barbara County stabilize roughly 975 feet of railing roadway on San Marcos Road, a key fire suppression and emergency access road during closures of State Route 154. Funding will also help restore embankments and shoulders that are prone to landslides and other roadway failures.

$1,267,500 to fund renovations and upgrades for the City of Lompoc’s Pioneer Park, including the construction of a new playground and baseball fields.

$1,000,000 to support construction and equipment needs of Marian Regional Medical Center’s Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) Residency Program Clinic in Santa Maria.

$500,000 to support the construction of the Santa Maria Japanese Community Center to honor the original Japanese settlers to the Santa Maria valley.

$500,000 to help water districts reliant on Lake Cachuma to respond to record drought by supporting an emergency pumping facility project that is needed to allow Lake Cachuma’s water to continue supporting its surrounding regions.

Heavy Rain, Warnings of Potential Flooding and Debris Flows

Mandatory Evacuation Issued for Alisal, Thomas, and Cave Fire Burn Regions

DAYS BEFORE THE FIVEYEAR ANNIVERSARY of the Montecito Debris Flow, Santa Barbara County officials issued mandatory evacuation orders for community members living in the Alisal, Thomas, and Cave Fire burn scar areas.

Updates and evacuation maps can be accessed at www.readysbc.org or by calling 211. The Santa Barbara City College Wake Campus has been set up as an Evacuation Center for residents living in the affected areas.

“The National Weather Service has advised the public safety agencies in Santa Barbara County that we are in the beginning stages of a major storm,” said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown during the January 4th press conference.

This storm is expected to bring an average of four to eight inches of rain within 24 hours, with some regions anticipated to receive up to ten inches of rain, and high winds measuring up to 50 to 60 mph.

Due to the already saturated state of the county’s watershed threatening debris and mud flows in burn scar areas, residents were advised to evacuate prior to the arrival of Wednesday night’s storm. Sheriff Brown assured sheriff deputies would be patrolling evacuated areas to prevent criminal activity.

County Fire Department Chief Mark Hartwig said that its Type 3 Incident Management team would be activated and additional equipment, including fire engines, patrols, and rescue squads would be made ready in the event they were needed.

“We’re prepared for whatever happens,” said Hartwig. “We hope those resources

aren’t needed, but we’re here if you need us.”

Montecito Fire Protection District Captain Chief Kevin Taylor likened the situation to the 1969 debris flow that occurred after the 1964 Coyote Fire. He also referenced the approaching anniversary of the Montecito Debris Flow, indicating that while this storm is not anticipated to be as powerful as the 2018 storm that caused that tragedy, the area has experienced heavy rainfall that increases the likelihood of mud and debris flows.

Santa Barbara Chief of Police Kelly Gordon stated that the City of Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol was working to ensure boats were safely harbored before the storm.

In addition to resident evacuations, animal evacuation services will be made available throughout the county. Individuals needing these services should call (805) 683-2724.

Congressman Carbajal Releases Statement on Speaker of the House Stalemate

AMIDST THE ONGOING STRUGGLES TO ELECT A SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, Congressman Salud Carbajal has released a filmed statement calling for action. The delayed election has prevented Carbajal and his colleagues from being sworn in for the new 118th Congress.

Until this swearing in process happens, no new legislation can be introduced, there will be no hearings, and all other business within the U.S. House of Representatives will continue to be on standstill.

Carbajal’s statement reads as follows:

“I’m here in Washington, just got back. I was hoping to have gotten sworn in, but my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have not been able to come together and select the Speaker.

So, I know we’ve seen the chaos. At first it was entertaining, but we are beyond that. It’s no more fun and games. We are not able to govern as a House of Representatives to get things done, to have hearings, to initiate legislation.

We are at a standstill at a stalemate. And it’s not the Democrats that are at a stalemate. We are united. What we need here is for our colleagues who now have the majority to find some way to govern, to come to some, to find some way to govern for the American people, come together and select their speaker. The American people want us to govern.

And I came back this week to get sworn in, to get seated on our committees and start governing, which is what my constituents want me to do, which is what the American people want us to do. And guess what? That is not happening.”

The UC Santa Barbara Chancellor’s Medal


MEDAL will be presented to Narciso Torres, Master Maya Forest Gardener, by Chancellor Dr. Henry T Yang, of the University of California Santa Barbara on January 13th, at UCSB at 11 am. Torres has been working on the El Pilar project in Belize since 1980, along with Dr. Anabel Ford.

“In this award, the Academy is opening its eyes and welcoming traditions born of the basic scientific method of trial and error — recognizing the wide range of contributions to the world of science,” said Dr. Ford, President of Exploring Solution Past — The Maya Forest Alliance and UCSB professor.

The Chancellor’s Medal is the highest honor given by the University of California.

“Over the years, we realized he was our teacher, and we were learning from him,” continued Ford. "Torres sees the forest in a completely different way. He maps the landscape based on his knowledge of the plants, his understanding of habitats and his deep appreciation of plant-animal relationships. For Narciso, it is clear how to find water by the presence of an insect that I would not see; to recognize animals by the evidence of fruits, prints, odors, and scat; or to hear the sounds of weather changes.”

An anthropologist, Ford has observed Torres tend the forest since the early 1980s, while conducting research at the ancient Maya city of El Pilar, in Belize. Torres continues to be a major contributor to Ford’s research on ancient Maya settlement patterns and land use. He has helped to map El Pilar and identify trees surrounding the mapped sites.

UCSB Arts & Lectures to Host Author Amor Towles

HAILING FROM THE BOSTON AREA, Amor Towles has become a critical favorite and a popular success for his novels including Rules of Civility, A Gentleman in Moscow, and The Lincoln Highway. Towles will discuss his work and career with UCSB Arts & Lectures at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on Thursday, February 2nd at 7:30pm.

Towles’ novels have collectively sold more than six million copies. His works fit within the American literary tradition of thrilling narratives that follow memorable young men on intricate journeys of risk, discovery and redemption.

Graduating from Yale College and earning an MA in English from Stanford University, Towles now devotes himself to writing full time after an over 20-year career as an investment professional. Towles’ Rules of Civility is the story of a young woman in 1930s New York who has a chance encounter that ushers her into the elite communities of New York.

A Gentleman in Moscow tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov, who, in 1922, is sentenced to house arrest by a Bolshevik tribunal for being an unrepentant aristocrat. Count Rostov, in his now restricted circumstances, must live in an attic while Russian history unfolds just outside his window.

The Lincoln Highway, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, is about 18 year-old Emmett Watson who is trying to restructure his life after serving a year on a work farm for involuntary manslaughter. For tickets ($10-35) visit www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu

Two More Monkeys Jumping in the Zoo

TWO NEW GOELDI’S MONKEYS HAVE BEEN WELCOMED TO THE SANTA BARBARA ZOO all the way from New Bedford, MA. Zookeepers are enjoying getting to know the shaggy new residents, George Michael (three), and Jimi (two). This is not the first time that the zoo has housed Goeldi’s monkeys, but it was long ago, and many current keepers were not with the zoo at that point. Goeldi’s monkeys are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and keepers are at work trying to help them become acclimated to their new home.

“While these monkeys are very small, they have really big personalities and are very active and inquisitive!” shared Dr. Julie Barnes. George Michael and Jimi, who are brothers, can be found leaping amongst the White-face saki monkeys in their habitat.

the Penguin


Tacky remains the most popular penguin to be found in children’s literature. The star of the 1988 story Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester, Tacky’s adventures have since continued through nine additional picture books. Through it all, Tacky has remained unabashedly true to himself, showing young readers the value of rejecting conformity and expressing themselves as they wish.

Tacky the Penguin opens on a small penguin colony, where all of the penguins except for Tacky are named after positive traits such as “Lovely,” “Angel,” and “Perfect.” Tacky, as his name suggests, is “an odd bird” compared to these prim and proper penguins. While his peers gracefully march, dive, and sing in unison, Tacky prefers to clumsily strut, perform cannon balls, and belt out silly tunes with his accordion.

When a group of hunters arrive to capture the penguins, only Tacky is brave enough to confront the hunters and

convince them that he and his friends couldn’t possibly be real penguins, as he behaves so strangely. His friends quickly follow Tacky’s lead, driving the hunters away before embracing Tacky and appreciating him for his peculiar ways.

Tacky’s constant self-love makes him a bizarrely inspiring hero. His infectious joy in sharing who he is and pursuing his passions regardless of his peers’ opinions demonstrates to young readers the importance of maintaining one’s identity. Even though none of the other penguins openly criticize or ostracize Tacky, readers inherently pick up on the pressure most individuals would feel to conform. Tacky’s commitment to being “an odd bird,” however ultimately saves the day, teaching his friends and readers that everyone’s differences are actually strengths that contribute to the larger community.

Add illustrations by Lynn Munsinger that are as heartwarming as they are silly, and Tacky the Penguin provides an endearing reminder for readers of all ages that the best individual to be is yourself.

This year, donor support allowed us to award 151 scholarships to cover over $50,0000 of summer camp costs for local families. We were also able to help fund 9-weeks of free childcare for almost 500 participants through the Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Summer Fun program.

Youth and Art Programs

Over the past 20 years, the Santa Barbara Arts Alliance program has provided free art-based mentoring to over 700 youth at risk of violence. This year, the California Park and Recreation Society recognized the program with their annual Creating Community Award of Excellence for its significant impact on the City of Santa Barbara. PARC is proud to support the critical work of the Arts Alliance by providing funding for supplies and stipends for youth artists.

Every Dollar Counts!
PARC supporters raised over $55,000 to restore the historic band shell at Plaza del Mar. This restoration aims to revitalize one of Santa Barbara’s oldest parks as a community destination for music, theater, dance, and celebrations, just as it once was. Next year, we will seek local sponsors to fund free community concerts and performances for Santa Barbara’s newest outdoor performance venue.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can you believe an entire year has flown by and it’s suddenly 2023? What an interesting year it’s been, considering the somewhat guarded relationship between those of us living on the planet and a coronavirus that doesn’t want to go away. It can’t be said, however, that any of this has hindered the re-envisioned get-togethers and yearly traditions that were put on hold as a result of the pandemic. As a matter of fact, it seems to me that our community is pushing back, gathering itself together, and moving towards 2023 in a great big way!

Speaking of traditions, one of the most important ones in Santa Barbara took place at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club on New Year’s Eve. At the stroke of midnight, the club’s 150th year, under the leadership of Commodore Eli Parker, came to an end. With the clubhouse remodel in full display and the club’s activities reinstated (including the most successful VNA Charity Regatta ever!), plus the extra events of the 150th Anniversary year, the 2022 calendar was indeed a full one.

The last celebration of 2022 was the annual New Year’s Eve party attended by members and guests in full party regalia to leap in style from the old year into a new one. As the clock’s hands merged at 12 o ’clock, in keeping with tradition, the helm and leadership of the Yacht Club was officially passed from 2022 Commodore Eli Parker to 2023 Commodore David Sadecki. But the real fun began quickly after, as the revelers gathered downstairs in the Yacht Club’s lobby near the designated location of the commodore’s portrait. In what might be considered a yearly Unceremonious Ceremony, newly minted Commodore Sadecki took former Commodore Parker’s portrait from its revered location and dropped it into a conveniently placed trash barrel. To the laughter and cheers of the party-goers, he replaced Parker’s portrait with his own, where it is to remain for the next 12 months.

The last event of the evening was the unceremonious removal of outgoing Commodore Parker’s vehicle from its Numero Uno parking spot in the Yacht Club lot. The arrival of a tow truck indicated that the procedure was to be swift… and final. This year however, a surprise awaited: apparently a mysterious force, yet to be named, had filled Parker’s car to the brim with hundreds and hundreds of wine corks (each emblazoned with Fess Parker Winery) that naturally complicated the plan for a swift tow-away. Nonetheless, the maneuver did take place to the laughter of the onlookers standing outside in the cold air of the parking lot. Just a car’s length away was 2023 Commodore Sadecki in his truck, ready pull into the commodore’s spot and announce his own 12 month occupancy!

With the support of Bridge members

Vice Commodore Dennis Boneck (House and Grounds), Rear Commodore Jeff Berkus (Racing Program), and the SBYC Board of Directors, the

Commodore is looking forward to his time at the helm. Growing up in Santa Barbara, a nine year-old Sadecki was introduced to sailing at the tiller of a Seashell. He continued in the Youth Sailing Foundation program founded by the Santa Barbara Yacht Club. Today, power boating has been added to sailboat racing in the club’s competitive programs and regattas. Sadecki’s goal as 2023 commodore is certainly understandable considering his history.

“As we enter our 151st year, my goal is to uphold the traditions and history that have made the Santa Barbara Yacht Club the place that it is today: to honor the many volunteers who continue to give so much time and energy to its success every single year. Commodores who came before me have laid the groundwork and I hope to continue in their footsteps.” He added, “Let’s just say I have some very large topsiders to fill.”

The best advice from previous commodores however, was to just have fun and really enjoy this very special year. Not bad advice, I’d say! Congratulations to you Commodore Sadecki and to the Santa Barbara Yacht Club!

Where Inspiration & Music Meet

January 13th at Isla Vista School; 7pm on Saturday, January 14th at Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center; and at 7pm on Sunday, January 15th at the Marjorie Luke Theatre.

“With the youth, what I really enjoy is the exposure for us that are born on this side of the border,” shared Jimmy Cuéllar, leader of Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar. “They come from families that come from Mexico, but this thing, if we’re not shown it, it can be a tradition that gets lost. It’s a very beautiful tradition, the music’s amazing, the dances

are amazing, the costumes are next to none. If I don’t help expose the youth and others, and spread its joy, it could get lost.”

Since 2006, ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! has reached over 15,000 students and individuals each year. In addition to promoting access to the arts and celebrating Latin American culture, the program invites artists to inspire local students, especially those in the fourth through eighth grades.

This spring, ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! will host 42 educational and community sessions, including assemblies with area schools, artist workshops, and meet-and-greet opportunities.

“At Arts & Lectures, we are thrilled to resume the exciting and deeply rooted ¡Viva el Arte

de Santa Bárbara! program at multiple locations throughout the region,” said UCSB Arts & Lectures Miller McCune Executive Director Celesta M. Billeci. She also thanked the program’s partners and volunteers, adding, “From Carpinteria and Santa Barbara to Isla Vista, Lompoc, Guadalupe, and New Cuyama, people will again enjoy the best ensembles from Latin America and the rich traditions they represent.”

A past program participant, Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar’s story reflects Viva el Arte’s dedication to connecting youth and community members to the arts. Growing up in Bakersfield, Cuéllar grew up immersed in mariachi music, listening to his uncles’ and father’s band.

When Cuéllar began playing

Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar will perform January 13th-15th

mariachi as a teenager, his father realized that his son did not have any peers his age to play with. He decided to launch Mariachi Garibaldi as a youth ensemble, crowding 25 students and their parents into their apartment.

Cuéllar went on to become a member of Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano for ten years, performing on multiple GRAMMYwinning albums, including Cien Por Ciento Mexicano by Pepe Aguilar.

However, Mariachi Garibaldi and its potential lingered in his mind. In 2014, Cuéllar took the ensemble’s reins, moving it to Los Angeles and expanding it into a professional, touring group. The band has since been featured on singer-songwriter Camila Cabello’s song La Buena Vida! and played with dozens of renowned Mexican singers.

“In every concert we have, we’re just trying to take you away for whatever the duration is, to have you just sit back — enjoy, sing along, clap, if there’s space you might get up and dance,” said Cuéllar.

Ever a supporter of education, Cuéllar helps run Thee Academy, a folklórico and mariachi school in Los Angeles with his wife, Kareli Montoya, the Director of Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles.

“It’s what my father did to me, that I also try

to continue on,” said Cuéllar in an interview with Chapman University about Thee Academy. “We do the same thing, exposing the youth to this mariachi world, and also giving them the roots they need to be better musicians, performers, and from there they grow into helping the mariachi culture rise to a higher level.”

When performing for Santa Barbara students, Cuéllar works to play light, fun songs that will capture young audiences’ attention. He also educates them on which instruments make up a mariachi band, and encourages them to clap and dance along, even teaching them how to let out a grito, or shout, when they like a song.

“I tell them as we’re playing, if you like what you hear, you do a grito,” chuckled Cuéllar. “So sometimes when we’re playing, you can hear a little whoo-hoo-hoo!”

In returning to Santa Barbara, Cuéllar is also excited to share mariachi music with the larger community, fondly remembering the warm welcome shown at his past local concerts.

“When we have done the public performances, the crowd response and smiles that we see from the stage, it’s a great feeling,” he said.

What’s Next at ¡Viva el Arte!

WILL U.S. ECONOMIC GROWTH FALL OFF a cliff in January? Maybe not. The Atlanta Federal Reserves’ GDPNow estimate has just raised their estimate of fourth quarter GDP growth to 3.7 percent and it was right on predicting higher Q3 growth.

Yet the pundit chorus is growing for at least two quarters of negative growth in 2023 due to the Fed’s hawkish stance on inflation.

“The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the fourth quarter of 2022 is 3.7 percent on December 23, up from 2.7 percent on December 20,” said the GDPNow report. “After recent releases from the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the National Association of REALTORS, the nowcasts of fourth-quarter real personal consumption expenditures growth and fourth-quarter real gross private domestic investment growth increased from 3.4 percent and -0.2 percent, respectively, to 3.6 percent and 3.8 percent, respectively.”

One reliable indicator, the Conference Board’s Index of leading Indicators (LEI), is predicting a recession next year.

Ataman Ozyildirim, Senior Director, Economics, at The Conference Board said: “Despite the current resilience of the labor market—as revealed by the U.S. CEI in November—and consumer confidence improving in December, the U.S. LEI suggests the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening cycle is curtailing aspects of economic activity, especially housing. As a result, we project a U.S. recession is likely to start around the beginning of 2023 and last through mid-year.”

But the jury is still out among economists on what may happen next year. Harvard economist Jeffery Frankel, a leading growth expert, indicated it’s not so inevitable in a Project Syndicate column:

“Clearly, the reports that the United States was in recession during the first half of the year were premature, especially given how tight the U.S. labor market is. And, despite the confidence with which many again proclaim the inevitability of a downturn, the chances of one in the coming year are well below 100 percent.”

In fact, there are too many ‘known

unknowns’ to paraphrase Bush Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Let’s take the unemployment situation for starters. The unemployment rate is still at post-World War II lows, and 4.9 million jobs were created in 12 months, the fastest jobs recovery since the 1990 “Desert Storm” recession.

third quarter reflected increases in exports, consumer spending, nonresidential fixed investment, state and local government spending, and federal government spending, per the BEA.

Consumers, at least, haven’t got the message that a recession is immanent.

With so much government support, maybe they see a New Deal in the New Year.

Why are we still at full employment? There were record levels of government spending, to not only to aid the pandemic recovery but modernize our infrastructure, upgrade our healthcare system, and aid the environment. This is New Deal level spending such as brought us out of the Great Depression.

The $1 trillion infrastructure bill is the largest in history. And it was needed since we had just survived the Great Recession that almost repeated the Great Depression as well as a pandemic that killed more than one million Americans.

Government came to the rescue then, as it is doing now.

The increase in real GDP for the

It will do so again, and we have record corporate profits— still the highest as a percentage of GDP ever.

“Consumer confidence bounced back in December, reversing consecutive declines in October and November to reach its highest level since April 2022,” said

Lynn Franco, Senior Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board.

“The Present Situation and Expectations Indexes improved due to consumers’ more favorable view regarding the economy and jobs. Inflation expectations retreated in December to their lowest level since September 2021, with recent declines in gas prices a major impetus. Vacation intentions improved but plans to purchase homes and big-ticket appliances cooled further.”

Consumers, at least, haven’t got the message that a recession is immanent. With so much government support, maybe they see a New Deal in the New Year.

Sullivan Goss: An American Gallery

Turning Eyes to the Sky

In Search of the Modern West

FROM “DUDE” TO “DUDE” - cultural stereotypes live on in new images. The land of The West is just as captivating as the figures who used to roam it. Where there were once cowboys blazing the trail of Manifest Destiny, we now have surfers who keep their gaze fixed on the horizon, waiting for the opportunity to work with the ocean around them. Instead of treating the land as something passive, waiting to be claimed, attitudes have shifted toward praise and reverence for the beauty of which we are constantly surrounded.

“I wanted an exhibition where people are challenged by their expectations, and are then comforted by what they find,” explained gallery director Jeremy Tessmer of his motivation in planning the latest Sullivan Goss exhibition, In Search of the Modern West. “In alluding to something as familiar and loaded as ‘The West,’ I wanted to surprise and delight people, and encourage them to reframe their thinking.”

The exhibition is not entirely void of reference to these common western vernacular.

Pieces like Edgar Ewing’s Spanish Saddle and Jean Swiggett’s Peppers and Chillies anchor viewers in a more traditional southwestern landscape. But R. Nelson Parrish’s RNP X RL Foil calls to mind the Californian coast, with a smooth curve that almost looks like the waves that a surfboard would slice through.

“Cliché is part of the mythology of culture and society. It’s important to acknowledge,” Tessmer said.

In Search of the Modern West features bright, vibrant, and striking pieces that, despite having minimal human subjects, feel lively. Inspired by the vast, open landscapes that are characteristic of western North America, Tessmer’s west is powerful, expansive, and even mystical.

The pieces in the exhibition span from the 1940s to the present day, and cover land from the midwest to California. One of the iconic features of the western U.S. is the abundance of mountains. In addition, in comparison to the east coast where Tessmer was born, the west is less built and developed.

“When people don’t have buildings surrounding them, they turn their interest to the sky,” Tessmer related.

Many of the pieces featured are abstractions, such as Untitled by Chris Winfield. A dark orange rectangle, segmented by soft purple strokes, sits atop a bright orange background, conjuring the warmth of watching the magical western sunsets change color in the sky.

The sky is the most common theme among the featured pieces. Tessmer said that he chose to use Storm Clouds by Werner Drewes as the primary advertisement for the gallery because of the tradition in which it is situated.

Drewes, as Tessmer explained, references already famous images of the western sky in this piece, with its iconic red rock and cloud filled skies.

There is no mystery why—our sky is beautiful,

The Gallery is open daily 10am to 5:30pm • 11 E. Anapamu St • Instagram: @sullivangoss

and this exhibit shows to us that humankind’s fascination with it is not a recent occurrence. The people in the west have felt its call for generations.

Featured Lender of the Month ~ Meet Elizabeth

“I love being part of this group! Each Leading Lender provides something valuable and unique to the group as a whole and to our clients collectively. I feel that, for my part, Bank of the West, as a bank and a portfolio lender (meaning we keep many of the loans on our books and don’t sell them) provides me with other options and often, greater flexibility. During these crazy times, many lenders got out of jumbo loans, interest only and cut programs. Bank of the West changed very few programs. For example, we still do cash-out loans even on investment properties. The lending world and its process isn’t what I would call ‘fun’ now, but I love the consultative nature of the business and working with my clients in that capacity.”
