IVA LA FIESTA! RANG OUT FROM THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SANTA BARBARA earlier this month as Old Spanish Days announced its 2022 leadership team on Tuesday, November 2nd. Maria Cabrera, a retired school counselor and longtime Fiesta volunteer, will serve as La Presidenta for the celebration’s 98th year. Joining her are Fiesta Executive Committee members Primer Vice Presidente David Bolton, Segundo Vice Presidente Brian Schwabecher, Treasurer Colin Hayward, and El Secretario Fritz Olenberger. Together, the team looks forward to carrying the torch of Santa Barbara’s most cherished tradition. “I believe that in the last few years we’ve missed being together, and so coming together is going to be really joyous,” said La Presidenta Maria Cabrera. “My hope is that we embrace all of each other — the visitors, the people who are tenth generation Santa Barbarans, the newly arrived — and for that week, we’re all just together.” An Old Spanish Days volunteer for 30 years and a Board Member since 2006, Cabrera personally knows the significance Fiesta has for local families. She first became involved with the annual celebrations when her daughter began dancing during Fiesta as a young girl. Eventually, Cabrera and her husband took dance classes themselves, making Fiesta a shared family experience. When her daughter went to university, Cabrera continued her involvement with the organization as a way of giving back. “It’s part of who we are,” shared Cabrera. Additional members of the 2022 Old Spanish Days leadership team will include Division Chiefs Janice Howell (Celebrations), Patricia Oreña (Dance and Entertainment), Casie Killgore (External Relations), Marge Romero (Mercados), and Tony Miller (Pageantry). As Old Spanish Days observes its third celebration since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization hopes for the return of more of its traditional festivities. However, the ongoing pandemic and the status of the State Street Promenade has left many community members wondering what August 2022’s events will look like. “Old Spanish Days is working hard to do all of our traditional events,” explained Primer Vice Presidente David Bolton. “Obviously, there are circumstances that may make us tweak them and everything, and right now we’re in that early stage, but we’re using this time to really work with City officials and our other partners to organize events that are traditionally part of Fiesta, but also take into consideration kind of the new moment we’re all in.” In the meantime, community members can anticipate once again honoring Santa Barbara’s past, enjoying beautiful music and delicious food, and cracking cascarones on loved ones’ heads at the 98th Old Spanish Days from August 3rd-7th, 2022.

NOAA Advances Public Process for Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary

OLLOWING YEARS OF COMMUNITY LEADERS CALLING FOR A CHUMASH HERITAGE NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will begin gathering public input to continue the designation process. Originally nominated in 2015 by the Northern Chumash Tribal Council, the proposed sanctuary area extends onshore from Cambria to Gaviota Creek, and offshore to protect Rodriguez Seamount, Arguello Canyon, and Santa Lucia Bank. In doing so, the sanctuary will serve not only local wildlife habitats, but protect sacred Chumash sites.

Local Partners Release Regional Priority Plan to Reduce Wildfire Risks

“Successfully designating the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary will protect ocean life, sacred Chumash sites, strengthen Indigenous communities and serve as a model of environmental justice,” said Northern Chumash Tribal Council Chairwoman Violet Sage Walker in a November 9th statement. “Today’s announcement marks a major milestone after more than 40 years of tireless advocacy for ocean protection, and also represents the first tribally nominated sanctuary in the nation. Today my father would be proud. This is one of the things he wanted to see the most.” According to the NOAA, the sanctuary’s location bears international environmental significance due to it being situated where temperate northern waters meet the subtropics. Many threatened and endangered species call this area home, including southern sea otters, black abalone, snowy plovers, leatherback sea turtles, and blue whales. Moreover, the sanctuary’s boundaries would protect sacred submerged Chumash sites, including villages and locations of solstice alignments. There are also multiple sacred sites onshore, such as the former Chumash Capital in the Avila Beach area. If established, the sanctuary would protect all of these elements, as well as promote further environmental research and education. It would also provide recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors. “The Environmental Defense Center is delighted that we are one step closer to establishing the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary in an area that we have sought to protect through the sanctuary system for many decades,” said Kristen Hislop, EDC Marine Conservation Program Director. “Climate change and other human uses have already dramatically altered our oceans and coast, and we believe the resources that come with an established national marine sanctuary will lead to enhanced marine protections, resiliency, research opportunities, education, and recreation for generations to come.” The NOAA public comment period will continue through January 10th, 2022. Following this, a draft sanctuary proposal will be written outlining the sanctuary’s regulations, boundaries, and future management plans. NOAA will then make its decision, with both the governor and congress having the opportunity to review the final documents. Interested community members can provide public comment by attending NOAA’s virtual public meetings on December 8th, December 13th, and January 6th. Written comments can also be mailed and submitted electronically. To attend and submit comments, visit www.sanctuaries.noaa.gov/Chumash-heritage

N A MILESTONE FOR MAINTAINING LOCAL TRAILS, Eling Park’s nine miles of public trails will be expanded, improved, and sustained for the next 20 years due to financial support from the Trek Foundation. These efforts will begin this month by the local Sage Trail Alliance, with funding also going to support the creation of a trail map of the entire park. This map will later be displayed on two new information kiosks. “We have experienced an explosion of trail use due to the COVID quarantine and the growth in the popularity of mountain biking,” said Dean Noble, Executive Director for Elings Park. “This generous funding will take our trails from SAGE Trail Alliance Executive Director Dillon Osleger and Elings ‘good’ to ‘outstanding,’ and Park Executive Director Dean Noble also benefits the Park’s many walkers and hikers who share the trails with cyclists.” Established in July of this year by Trek Bicycle, this project is one of four recently funded by the Trek Foundation. Beyond caring for existing trails within Elings Park, the Sage Trail Alliance will also develop several new trails for the public’s enjoyment. They will also provide ecological restoration of key areas. “Our world needs more people on bikes and people need great places to ride those bikes,” said Bob Burns, Trek Bicycle Vice President of Advocacy. “This investment in Elings Park will help get more people on their bikes and outside in the awesome ecosystems of the Central Coast.”

MIDST HEIGHTENED THREATS FROM DROUGHT AND CLIMATE CHANGE, multiple local organizations have joined together to create the Regional Priority Plan to Reduce Wildfire Risk and Improve Forest Health in Santa Barbara County. Now available to the public online, the plan identifies more than 50 priority projects that proactively address wildfire risks and serve the community. “The Cachuma RCD and our partners are inspired and excited by what we have learned through the RPP,” said Anna Olsen, Cachuma Resource Conservation District Executive Director. “Several projects identified in the plan have already received funding to expand on the work the RPP has started, and a wide variety of other agencies and organizations have begun looking to the RPP to identify their own priorities and future projects.” Funded by the California Coastal Conservancy, the RPP project was administered and led by the Cachuma Resource Conservation District, with team members including LegacyWorks Group, Community Environmental Council, McGinnis Environmental, and Conservation Biology Institute. For 18 months, the team communicated with many other partners in the fields of fire protection, environmental stewardship, government leadership, and more. Altogether the RPP identifies and prioritizes projects to mitigate fire risks across a range of impact areas, including equity, neighborhood organizing, vegetation management, research and analysis, buffers and land protection, and more. It will also serve as a means for facilitating decision-making and be the basis for resilience planning and project implementation. Additionally, the plan maps specific areas in Santa Barbara County where different types of risk reduction activities would have the greatest impact. All of these maps and models are now available online via an interactive Spatial Tool. Community members are invited to learn how to use this Spatial Tool during a free webinar from 1-2pm on December 9th.

HE NEXT TIME YOU SEE A MONARCH BUTTERFLY, MAKE A NOTE! As monarch butterflies return to Goleta’s Ellwood Butterfly Grove this winter, community members are encouraged to participate in the 25th Annual Thanksgiving Western Monarch Butterfly Count. Taking place between now and Sunday, December 5th, this event is a yearly volunteer effort to gather data on Western Monarch Butterfly populations from Mendocino to Northern Baja, Mexico. To date, more than 10,000 monarchs have been counted at monarch butterfly overwintering locations across California’s coast, including Pismo Beach and Pacific Grove. Locally, the Ellwood Butterfly Grove has counted approximately 500 monarchs since the beginning of November — an extremely low number compared to past years’ records. As monarch butterflies’ overwintering season spans from October through March, this month’s campaign will be a crucial time to accumulate additional research on current monarch butterfly populations.

To participate in local efforts for the Thanksgiving Western Monarch Butterfly Count, contact regional coordinator Charis van der Heide at charisvdh@gmail.com. Another New Year’s Monarch Butterfly Count is also scheduled to take place from December 25th-January 9th.

Adding to the fun, children can either bring their own holiday gift lists, or create one at Paseo Nuevo’s Letters to Santa Creation Station, which is located near Center Court. Children and adults who want a “White Christmas” experience can also visit Paseo Nuevo during its nightly snowfall celebrations beginning Friday, November 26th. Running through New Year’s Eve, two free, ten minutelong snowfall shows will take place at 5:30pm and 6:30pm, playing holiday music as fluffy snowflakes rain around the crowd. www.paseonuevoshopping.com

in the mix. Bach again showed up, logically enough for the organist/organ composition master, in a rare local organ concert, Saturday afternoon at Trinity Episcopal Church, with the church’s formidable organist Thomas Joyce, impressive player and composer Raymond Egan, and the bold young Adan Fernandez. In the case of this concert, the first presented by the venerable Santa Barbara Music Club since pre-lockdown, the “being there” is especially vital: a good pipe organ, such as the instrument at Trinity Episcopal, is literally embedded in its host environment. Hearing an organ concert in the sterility of a streaming/ screen-bound form would be a shabby substitute for a concert in which the pipes and walls reverberate in the sacred room we occupy. It’s an experiential, in-your-face-and-bones thing.

Pedersen (a co-founder of Desert Rose Band, along with Jorgenson), Mark Fain and Patrick Sauber, cooking up a steamy menu of rich vocal harmonies and fiery-tasty licks. Earthy musical goods can also be found at the Lobero tonight (November 19), when fortysomething troubadour John Craigie lands on this roots music-friendly stage. On hypnotic tunes such as I Am California, the Californian singer-songwriter projects a relaxed, livedin and sometimes humor-speckled musical persona, validating a range of comparisons to the likes of Woody Guthrie, John Prine, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. But he’s got his own voice, one that can be wise, droll, tale-spinning, and happy to bask in retro musical wares, as heard on his latest album, Asterisk the Universe, with its fetching groover Don’t Ask among other allurements. To toss yet another reference in the influence pile, think Band-era Dylan, ala Craigie. Craigie gives us another good reason to get outta the house and into the Lobero.

O PARAPHRASE AND GENERALIZE THE OLD DEADHEAD ADAGE “there’s nothing like a Grateful Dead concert,” many of us have proven that there’s nothing like a live concert, period. Having witnessed three memorable concerts last weekend, in the space of 26 hours, I’m a believer. Again. The Yuja Wang/ Leonidas Kavakos concert at Campbell Hall lived up to high expectations, and felt John Craigie another strong validation that we had re-entered the world of world class classical artists in the 805, as the internationally-spun sensations Danish String Quartet and Avi Avital had done when in our town last month. One common denominator last weekend was the timeless imprint of J.S. Bach, centrally placed in the Wang/Kavakos TO SEE AND HEAR: program, and seconded the In other music venue news, next night when Baroque beyond the Lobero, Granada, specialist maestro Nicholas Campbell Hall, and the Santa McGegan led the Santa Barbara Barbara Bowl, the city’s Thomas Joyce Symphony in a Baroque premiere showcase club, SOhO, program built around the Brandenburg has been abuzz, not-so-quietly upstairs in its Concerto, with Rameau, Telemann, and Handel Victoria Court compound since September.

Movie review: Parallel Mothers

A

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

T ONCE A SPELLBINDING THRILLER and a vulnerable exploration of the Spanish Civil War’s lasting impacts, Parallel Mothers is a complex, decidedly woman-centered film. Set to be released in American theatres this December, the film is Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar’s latest masterpiece, weaving together a compelling and multi-layered drama. On November 12th, local film buffs were granted a preview as the Santa Barbara International Film Festival hosted Almodóvar for a screening and Q&A at the Riviera Theatre. The film opens with Janis (Penélope Cruz), a photographer in her late 30s asking Arturo (Israel Elejalde), an anthropologist, to excavate the mass grave where her greatgrandfather was buried during the Spanish Civil War. The two have an affair, and Janis Pedro Almodóvar becomes pregnant. When delivering the baby, Janis befriends her hospital roommate Ana (Milena Smit), an adolescent girl who will also be a single mother. Yet while Janis is excited to become a mother, Ana expresses great fear. Months later, Arturo visits Janis and their daughter, Cecilia, for the first time. Upon observing that Cecilia has darker skin than either him or Janis, he questions if he is the father. Confident in her fidelity to Arturo, Janis also begins to question Cecilia’s parentage as time passes. Suddenly, viewers find themselves following Janis through a series of increasingly surprising and morally ambiguous twists as she maintains her identity as a mother. Almodóvar consistently returns to Spain’s mass graves throughout Parallel Mothers, adding real complexity and details

to an otherwise fictional tale. During the Spanish Civil War, hundreds of thousands of people were murdered and buried in mass graves, with many remaining undisturbed to this day. This injustice’s lingering impact is revealed through Janis, who inherited her grandmother’s promise to see her father properly buried. In combining this background with Janis’ struggles as a mother, Almodóvar examines the value of truth. “It was this public truth, this historical memory if you like, that then I joined together in Penélope’s character through her own conflicted relationship to truth,” explained Almodóvar. “It’s this moral dilemma that I create in that character, that contradiction that their character is living between her inability to be truthful privately in her search for the public truth.” A regular star in his films, Almodóvar shared this is Cruz’s most difficult role to date. Yet Cruz meets the challenge, giving a nuanced performance that combines fierce determination with poignant yearning and passion. Her talent in this role earned her the Best Actress award at this year’s Venice Film Festival. The emphasis on Spain’s missing persons further highlights the theme of motherhood. Save for Arturo’s irregular appearances, all men referenced are conspicuously absent, including the ten men interred in the mass grave. Ana is estranged from her father, while Janis never even met hers. This forces viewers to confront Spain’s past and present through the eyes of single mothers, gaining insight into their different challenges. Janis has to accept lower-paying jobs to be near Cecilia, while Ana’s mother (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón) struggled to feel the maternal instinct others said she would. Ana, who became pregnant after a sexual assault, must overcome trauma in assuming her identity as a mother.

Holding A Mirror to Spanish History and Motherhood

All of the film’s emotional and dramatic points are punctuated perfectly by a remarkable score composed by Alberto Iglesias. Add to this the film’s carefully crafted sets, theatrical lighting, and breathtaking cinematography by José Luis Alcaine, and Parallel Mothers is a thriller-drama that is as visually captivating as its plot. Almodóvar ended the evening’s interview as he did his film – reminding the audience that Spain must honor the mothers, fathers, and children of the past before it can truly move forward. “It is a real debt that the Spanish society has with the victims and also with the families,” said Almodóvar. “And I really feel until the Spanish society does pay this debt, we can’t really close that chapter that the Civil War was.”

Concert review: Yuja Wang and Leonidas Kavakos, Campbell Hall, November 12, 2021

Dynamo Dualism OR ALL THE BOUNTY OF MUSICAL HIGHS supplied by the artful duo of pianist Yuja Wang and violinist Leonidas Kavakos last week at Campbell Hall, one key and slightly startling moment stood out. It involved an excusable breach of concert protocol and, more importantly, a cathartic collective outburst, which seemed to represent a venting of pent-up frustrations over longsuffered pandemic privations. Perhaps I’m over dramatizing. Perhaps not. At this sensitive juncture, creeping out of cultural hibernation, live music can tend to overly inflate the music lovers’ emotions. In this concert, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, the program was anchored around the mighty J.S. Bach—his two sonatas for violin and keyboard and a mercurial work by the Bach-obsessed composer Ferruccio Busoni—and capped off by the hardiest and wildest entry, Shostakovich’s Violin Sonata for Violin and Piano in G, Opus 134. It was that piece’s savagely beauty second movement, the Andantino, which stirred Campbell Hall crowd into a wild eruption, a hoot-filled ovation despite their proper silence-between-movements manners elsewhere that night. It couldn’t be helped. Kavakos, the Greek virtuoso commanding a quiet-butpotent force on his instrument, looked a bit alarmed by the mid-game ovation, as if joltingly awakened by the music’s entrancing hold. Up to that raucous point, he had shown restrained elegance (and gorgeous-toned long notes) on the Bach turf – seemingly heeding early music practice style – and romantic intensities in the blurred-identity canvas of Busoni’s Sonata No. 2 in E minor, Opus 36a. Busoni, who helped make Bach a piano staple through his pioneering arrangements and transcriptions (helping to make Glenn Gould possible, for instance), dips into

Bach’s DNA with a passage treating an aria from Bach’s “Notebook for Anna Magdalena” to twist-up variations. Kavakos and Wang, whose stunning sense of dynamic subtlety and energy-to-suit any score, were at the expressive ready, for this and other challenges on the program. That climaxed with the alternately brooding, salty, dissonant, folk-ish and primal characters of the Shostakovich (written in 1967 for violinist David Oistrakh). Twosomes among the upper echelon of classical music stars, sometimes as friendly pacts but sometimes as music business match-making, come in varying degrees of relationship success. Something special is embedded in the alliance of Wang and Kavakos, who last graced a local stage at the Granada Theater in 2017 (which, accounting for the time-bending pandemic era, feels like much longer ago than it is). They have an empathetic connection as musical partners, and related on certain evident planes, but also possess that indefinable yet palpable “x factor” in their linkage. Visually, opposites attract in this pairing. Wang, famously fashionable and tradition-busting, came equipped with intermission costume changes in long red and silver/powder blue gowns and high-rise heels, contrasting the tall Kavakos’ slightly ill-fitting black suit and bow tie. If there is a downside to the success of this package, it is that Wang doesn’t get her due spotlight on repertoire with violin as protagonist. We want more. But what we get, and what we got last week, is a sublime musical energy and nuanced detailing transmitted from the stage to our ears – underscore “our” ears in a gathered collective. Live music by world class performers: what a concept. In short, the Wang/Kavakos team delivered one of the clearly great performances of Santa Barbara’s music year.

IG NEWS! Little late, perhaps, but nonetheless a huge happenin’. Due to the stop/ start nature of this project and the many interesting and fun events going on in and around the harbor, it’s finally time to announce the half-way mark of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s ongoing remodel. Occasionally I’d climb the stairs to the upper deck hoping to catch a glimpse of the construction but, alas, like the rest of us, I had to wait until the doors officially opened. And what an experience that was! This week’s column will include a glimpse of what I saw that day, just after the upstairs was well... sort of unofficially opened, which was perfect for me and my camera. Practically no one was there except two of my favorites: Renee who, during the remodel, could be seen running up and down the stairs serving guests with a great big smile and Pablo, perched at his usual spot behind the newly renovated bar. Several things caught my eye immediately in the spacious interior: the first being the renovated bar and the spaciousness of the room and secondly, its revisioned ceiling from which hung the traditional collection of burgees – ever present in the old configuration, but curiously unnoticed by me until that moment. Moving into the main dining room – now separated by a massive movable glass wall – two seating areas had been added on either side of the room with a serious upgrade in furniture along with the traditional dining tables and chairs. The trophy cases that surrounded the room were also revisioned – lit and transparent from both sides. One of the most spectacular features was the former library now transformed into a private dining room (also equipped with a sliding glass partition) that could be utilized alone or as an expansion of the dining area. The canvas upon which all these new additions were placed was a carpet that was not only utilitarian, but didn’t distract from the highlighted elements in both areas. Silly to talk about a carpet you might say... but until that moment I was unaware of how important that element of interior design can be! “We’re so proud of the new features, especially the seating areas and our library remodel,” stated Commodore Andra Escola. “The finishing touches for the upstairs will be a series of historical photos that we plan to display on the interior walls upstairs in the next few days.” On my way out to the parking lot that day I noticed three amazing lamps hanging from the stairwell ceiling, ones that had been replicated in the new private dining area. As I stumbled down the stairs I knew I’d had quite an excursion for just one day. Commodore Escola brought me up to date on the downstairs remodel now in progress. “The former fleet room will be expanded to become a recreational area for our junior skippers, complete with table tennis and other activities for their enjoyment.” The room will include the same transparent trophy cases to display the trophies exclusively intended for the junior fleet. The area outside the rec room will include indoor/outdoor furniture to extend the area further and for general use by all members.“This section of the Club will be available for special events for the community and can be reserved by date for weddings and other celebrations,” added Escola. “We anticipate that the entire Club will be open and completed by the first weekend in April when our 2022 Opening Day has been scheduled.” Sounds like a worthwhile goal to me in celebration of the Yacht Club’s 150th year! I’m looking forward to reporting on the completion of the entire renovation on or before the anticipated opener and the 150th Birthday Bash. So... Stay tuned!

Santa Barbara Symphony

Guest conductor Nicholas McGegan makes Baroque with our modern orchestra

Photo by Steve Sherman

I

Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

T HAS BEEN SAID, “To the victor, the spoils.” Englishman Nicholas McGegan, well known to Santa Barbara audiences for his several pilgrimages here over the decades to set the record straight about Baroque performance practice on modern instruments, jollied himself onto the Granada Theatre stage last weekend to conduct the Santa Barbara Symphony in a program of Baroque repertoire that clearly gave away his Sawbridgeworth prejudices. Assembling, as is his Puckish habit, a program that was both straightforward at one level, and entirely tongue-in-cheek, even subversive at another, McGegan sandwiched two perfectly lovely and politically innocent works - Telemann’s G Major Viola Concerto and Bach’s ineluctable Brandenburg Concerto No. 4, also in G Major, between a stylistic, culinary, and bravado-laced food fight. However subtle the messaging, McGegan’s delightfully devilish programming choices in this case read: We (the Pragmatic Allies Britain, The Dutch Republic, The Electorate of Hanover) won the War of Austrian Succession (Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle 1748) and you (France, Prussia, Bavaria) suck. Disarmingly chatty and fun - his cover for nefarious international political intrigue McGegan helped his Americans understand a bit about the whole Austrian Succession thing - as sexist as it gets, Maria Theresa’s right as a woman, to inherit her father’s Austrian crown is challenged. In the end, she wins.

Conductor Nicholas McGegan

Yes! Having lost that struggle (Maria Theresa became one of Europe’s great empresses) the French nevertheless celebrated victory (?) with music; Jean Philippe Rameau’s pastorale héroïque in three acts, Nais, from which McGegan selected eight dances for audience delectation. Bottom line, each of the dances, performed with period stylings and subtleties out the cook house window, made a case, however inadvertently, for French cultural

distance and decadence - something about “let them eat cake.” Certainly not to an Englishman’s taste for fanfare, trumpets, and timpani, McGegan sensed a kill, and went for the jugular, a deliberate, if subtle cultural diss from our English guest conductor? Of course, and damn fun to boot! McGegan gave his motives for mischief away at the beginning ablutions for the evening. Dickensian as The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the maestro assured us we would soon discover the difference between French temperament and English beer drinking. After a delightfully precious performance of the opening set of Versailles-influenced frills and fluff from Rameau, not counting the Telemann and Bach pieces that somewhat centered the evening (more in a bit) it was a delightful jolt to be thrust upon the banks of the Thames at the end of the concert, imagining George II’s celebration of the Aix-la-Chapelle treaty, Handel’s eponymous Music for the Royal Fireworks. Remembering that George II was Duke of Hanover before the big invite to become King of England, all was well that ended Germanic in those days. Thus, to stretch to its limit a tenuous musical metaphor, Telemann and Bach were, ah, bedfellows to the reigning king of England’s taste, thus perfect choices for maestro McGegan’s fiendishly subtle comingling of English and French temperaments in last weekend’s program. Santa Barbara Symphony’s Principal Viola, Erik Rynearson, gave Saturday night’s

audience a deliciously calm, organized, subtly colored, warm, and unromanticized (good) performance of the Telemann concerto, as straightforward and uncluttered as a German pastry - sweet with a touch of tart. Likewise, Santa Barbara Symphony musicians Jessica Guideri (violin), Jennifer Ohlson (flute) and Katherine Marsh (flute) offered assured, balanced (important here), and stylistically appropriate accommodation to the modern instrument/Baroque temperament compromises for such a performance. Making clear who was on the winning side of the War of Austrian Succession, Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks trounced, annihilated, and obliterated the French fluff of Rameau’s commission. Kudos, the superb trumpets (we’re talking several flavors and sizes) of the Santa Barbara Symphony, plaudits too, for the fabulous timpani bits - authentic to a tee, and Santa Barbara Symphony winds and strings for accomplishing the miracle of style, color, balance, and Baroque performance practice on modern instruments, maestro McGegan’s specialty. A wonderful evening of Baroque repertoire, fashioned around a historical event. Food for fun.

Additionally, what about a home inherited by the children of an owner and reassessed at over $4 million. Previously, that new owner could keep the old tax basis of the property, but if this initiative passes, that new owner may not be able to afford the taxes on the home now and be forced to sell to someone wealthy enough to afford them. If the idea behind this is to make home ownership more affordable, it does not look as if it will achieve that goal. The initiative’s title sounds like it will make housing more affordable in California, but the bill does little to address the root causes of affordability, namely the lack of adequate supply of housing. This initiative still has to go through the process of raising enough signatures to qualify for the ballot for next year, so this will be monitored closely as it moves forward.

Habitat for Humanity Helps Local Resident Enjoy a Safe Home for the Holidays

U

NDERSTANDING THE VALUE OF BEING ABLE TO SAFELY AGE AT HOME, Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County provides critical home repairs to many low-income senior residents across our community. Recently, the organization extended this service to Barbara, a resident of the Hidden Valley area. As an 87 years-old homeowner, Barbara found herself unable to make necessary accommodations to her house that would allow her to safely and self-sufficiently stay there. Due to her severe arthritis, it is hard for her to move and drive, and she uses a walker around the house. With an urgent surgery scheduled for the future, she knew that she would not be able to bathe herself in her current bathroom. Her daughter, Kim, contacted Habitat Santa Barbara, who sent a crew to replace Barbara’s bathtub with a walk-in shower. They also altered built-in fixtures that blocked Barbara’s walker and installed a new toilet. Barbara’s children then painted the bathroom’s walls and completed the final finishings, as a part of Habitat Santa Barbara’s partnership model. “As a homeowner, you’re usually excluded from so many housing resources,” Kim told Habitat Santa Barbara. “But my mom is low-income. When we saw that Habitat for Humanity might be a resource for her as a homeowner on a small, fixed income, we thought it could be our only hope to keep Mom in her home.” Since March 2020, Habitat Santa Barbara has completed home repairs for over 20 local households. Beyond the Home Repair Program, the organization invests in construction projects for new affordable homeownership housing. It is in the beginning stages of building its fifth affordable housing project in the City of Santa Barbara. To learn more, visit www.sbhabitat.org

SB and Toba, Japan Students Exchange Origami Cranes for Paper Crane Project

I

N A GESTURE OF INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP, students from Santa Barbara and Toba, Japan have exchanged origami paper cranes inscribed with greetings and short messages. As Sister Cities for more than 50 years, Santa Barbara and Toba students exchanged these cranes on an annual basis prior to the pandemic. Now, this delightful tradition has resumed, with more than 500 students from each city participating. Toba students from nine elementary and junior high schools began this year’s exchange, sending carefully folded paper origami cranes across the Pacific. The cranes were then distributed to fourth and sixth grade classrooms at Franklin, Cold Springs, Peabody, and Santa Barbara Charter public elementary schools, as well as La Colina and Goleta Valley Jr. High students. The local students were then taught how to fold their own origami cranes by Lisa Ishikawa, Takako Wakita, Paula Steinmetz, Linda Mathews, Sally Hamilton, and Sue DiCicco, the founder of the Peace Crane Project. Eagerly, the students wrote their names and messages into the cranes to be sent back to Toba. Founded in 2013, over 2 million children beyond Santa Barbara and Toba have participated in the Peace Crane Project. Its founder, DiCicco, is also the co-author of The Complete Story of Sadako Sasaki, which tells the story of a young girl who succumbed to atomic radiation leukemia after the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima.

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

F ONE PICTURE CAN SAVE 1,000 WORDS, then maybe Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman’s citing of the huge decline in average hourly wages of Production and Non-supervisory Employees in Transportation and Warehousing since the 1970s goes a long way to explaining the current supply-chain bottleneck and concurrent inflation surge. It explains even more—why so many Americans are refusing to return to their workplaces. The COVID pandemic has exposed the consequences of the overall decline in working Americans’ wages and standard of living that has shrunk the middle class and endangered our democracy. Of course, the coincidence of declining wages and truck-driver shortages doesn’t necessarily spell causation, but at a time of soaring demand by consumers and producers for the products they deliver, they have one of the most demanding 24/7 jobs for less than college-educated workers. And, there is much anecdotal evidence from independent truckers that confirms the existing pay scale is not worth it. In October, the American Trucking Association said the U.S. needed 80,000 more truck drivers. Shauntai Robinson, an owner operator out

of the ports in South Carolina, in a post on Medium cited by Yahoo News, said that after 16 years in the industry, she was beginning to question the viability of a career as a truck driver. “There are thousands of valid class A CDL holders, across the United States, who have elected to not drive a truck anymore,” Robinson wrote. “These people have not relinquished their credentials. Instead, these valuable people have been forced to seek alternative forms of employment in order to be able to provide for their families.” On average, truck drivers working full time, year-round, earn about $43,252 annually, lower than the median for all full-time workers ($47,016), but exceeding those in other bluecollar jobs, reports the U.S. Census Bureau. The huge decline in transportation and warehousing wages actually mirrors the sharp decline in average hourly wages of all production and non-supervisory workers that began in 1980, as can be seen from the above FRED graph (gray bars are recessions). That was when Big Business began its lobbying campaign to influence economic policies—morphing into what came to be known as trickle-down economic policies with the election of President Ronald Reagan in 1980.

So-called Reaganomics accelerated the deregulation of whole industries that began in the 1970s, directly suppressing the collective bargaining rights of workers to such an extent that there are now 26 so-called right-to-work (red) states that say a worker can work in a company employing unionized workers, and enjoying its benefits, without having to pay union dues! The millions of workers holding back from reentering the workforce because of the worst pandemic in 100 years has perhaps awakened more than truck drivers to the need to hold out for a better economic system that has impoverished them since the 1980s, when conservative economic policies took away workers’ rights as well as drastically reduced their incomes. President Biden’s $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was passed just in time to make a difference for working families by providing jobs that can

For me, Richard Avedon (1923-2004) is one of the few contemporary artists able to capture the essence of modern times the way Holbein and Rubens did during their eras. Being the most famous fashion photographer of his time, Avedon, challenged himself by spending five years traveling through twenty-one western states photographing more than 1000 people in their daily lives. Now, the Gagosian Gallery in Beverley Hills presents his large-scale photographic portraits from his series, In the American West (1979–84). These ten photographs have not been shown together since then. These larger-than-life prints overwhelm you with their deep humanity, and vulnerability. They are timeless. There is no doubt in my mind that Avedon portraits will speak to future generations of viewers the way Holbein’s and Rubens’ speak to us. The exhibition runs through December 18, 2021.

OU MAY AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH ME, but on my list of the most amazing, most famous Old Master Painters are Hans Holbein the Younger (1497-1543), and Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640). Any museum would be lucky to show one or two of their masterpieces, but to have retrospectives of both artists at the same time, at the same museum... That is an impossible dream. Somehow, with the help of Gods and Muses, The Getty Center and The Getty Villa have managed to do just that. Hans Holbein the Younger The Holbein exhibition, Capturing Character in the L: A Lady with a Squirrel and a Starling, c. 1526-28 / R: Erasmus of Rotterdam, c. 1532 Renaissance, at The Getty Center brings together several dozen of his paintings and drawings on loan from museums and private collections from around the world. Born in Germany, Hans Holbein the Younger, launched his career in Switzerland, but ultimately settled in England where he became a Court Painter to King Henry VIII. The technical virtuosity of his portraits of the rich and famous are striking, but what truly holds our attention is the complexity and intelligence of their personalities. If not for their exquisite Renaissance clothing, portraits of these men and women rendered so realistically, they come across as present-day snapshots. Take a look at their faces and tell me, wouldn’t you want to know them? To ask them questions? To hear their stories? This chance of a lifetime exhibition, which begs for more than one visit, runs through January 9, 2022. Before Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens became one of Hans Holbein the Younger the most famous and sought-after European painters of the L: Derich Born, 1533 / R: Bonifacius Amerbach, 1519 17th century, he lived in Italy where he studied the art of the Renaissance Masters. He was equally inspired and impressed by Greek and Roman sculptures, which influenced his art for decades to come. In a very appealing and appropriately theatrical juxtaposition, his paintings are paired with ancient marble sculptures in the exhibition, Picturing Antiquity, at The Getty Villa. So, here is another blockbuster exhibition for us to enjoy. And not only to enjoy, but to be seduced by Rubens’ sense of humor, joyous sensuality and yes, blossoming sexuality. Now, let’s say hello to the young Rubens himself as he looks back at us with Peter Paul Rubens a group of friends. His buddies appear content living and staying in the 17th T: Installation shot of the exhibition at The Getty Villa century, but Rubens breaks through the fourth wall with his emotional gaze B: Self-Portrait with a Group of Friends in Mantua, c. 1602 connecting with us—here and now—in our time. The exhibition runs through January 24, 2022.

Waterhouse Gallery

37th Anniversary Exhibition & Celebration

O

By Kerry Methner / VOICE

NE OF THE DYNAMIC DUOS ON THE SANTA BARBARA ART SCENE, Diane and Ralph Waterhouse, owners of Waterhouse Gallery, are celebrating the Gallery’s anniversary. This year the Gallery has reached the ripe age of 37. For the Waterhouses, who love painters, painting, and all things art, there’s no better way to mark the moment than to gather their team of artists and invite the community in to enjoy. “We love painting - it’s our life and our passion,” Diane shared. “I feel so blessed that I’ve been able to do what I love to do.”

Artists and friends regularly stop by Waterhouse Gallery and proprietors Diane and Ralph enjoy seeing them in person. Here, Ellie Freudenstein, Ray Hunter, and Camille Dellar, longtime gallery artists (Ellie and Ray 1997, Camille 2013) with Ralph and Diane Waterhouse.

On Saturday, November 20th, the Anniversary celebration will boast no less than six master painters Cloud Over Montecito Peak-Sunset by Ann Shelton Beth working in the lovely La Arcada courtyard from 1 to 4pm. Artists doing demonstrations include: Rick Delanty, Derek Harrison, Wyllis Heaton, Craig Nelson, Thomas Van Stein, and Jove The Waterhouse Family Wang. They will be Claire, Diane, and Ralph painting our scenic and unique Santa Barbara. Oak Group members Ray Hunter, Thomas Van Stein, and Ann Sanders will also be present. As the day continues, an artist reception is set for 4 to 6:30pm.

By the Sea by Craig Nelson

Waterhouse Gallery opened its door in November of 1984 and has been in La Arcada for 30 years. Over those years, “We have showcased the finest in contemporary landscapes, figurative and urban paintings,” Diane recalled proudly. “We’ve been involved in the arts in many ways over all these years. We’re chapter chairs of the California Art Club, I’ve been on the Museum of Art’s women’s board for 12 years... We do the Artists’ Table at the Museum of Natural History...I love organizing art events,” Diane continued.

Craig Nelson, one of the six featured artists who will be painting in the courtyard is captured here, doing a demo earlier this year.

Many things have changed in the art world during that time. The gallery has been resilient and flexed as needed. “When we started, there were no computers and no black frames. Plein air was not as popular back then. Now, in the last ten years, Morning Ledbetter by Ray Hunter an on-line presence is critical,” she explained. For Waterhouse their online presence is an important part of what they offer. They have some longtime artists... Bela Bacsi has been with us since 1986. Ellie Freudenstein and Ray Hunter since 1997. In an important way, they become part of the Gallery family. The gallery is looking forward to continuing its presence in the arts community. Already in 2022 they are planning “lots of great things.” Their 2022 calendar will begin with a series of two person shows.... Wyllis Heaton and Thomas Van Stein in January; Steve Curry and Rick Garcia in March. The line-up will continues. If painting is a passion of yours, like it is for the Waterhouses, keep your eye out and stop in an join the celebration on Saturday.

CALL FOR: Environmental Justice Art

T

HE NEED TO RAISE COMMUNITY AWARENESS concerning environmental and climate issues through art has given birth to a collaboration between three county departments and will center on what environmental justice means to people residing in Santa Barbara County. The call for art entries is open to county artists. Three artists will be accepted and receive a $500 honorarium, and two student artists will be awarded $250 scholarships as part of this initiative. The three collaborating departments are: County Planning and Development Department Long Range Planning Division, the Community Services Department Sustainability Division, and the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts & Culture. The project has been designed to create an opportunity for community members to share their perspectives and will expand community understanding and awareness of environmental and climate issues. All mediums will be accepted and artists submitting work may have an opportunity to be showcased in County media, documents, and policy platforms. Art submissions must be sent electronically by January 10, 2022 via the Arts & Culture website at www.sbac.ca.gov/environmental-justice
