Imagination & Improvisation A Transformative Light Shines on Classical Music

INFUSING SOULFUL IMPROVISATIONAL

The Artists

Nir Kabaretti, Conductor

Natasha Kislenko, Piano

Ted Nash, Saxophone

Josh Nelson Trio

PROGRAM

SPONTANEITY of jazz in the context of a fully orchestrated symphonic composition, legendary jazz saxophonist Ted Nash accepted the Santa Barbara Symphony’s invitation to pen an arrangement of his 2021 jazz ensemble piece for the symphony. That new work, Transformation, will have its world premiere during the Symphony’s upcoming performances at the Granada Theatre on Saturday, February 18th at 7:30pm and Sunday, February 19th at 3pm.

Concert Duration: 2 hrs, 15 min

• Ernst Von Dohnanyi | Variations on a Nursery Song, Op. 25

• Ted Nash | Transformation for Symphony Orchestra and Narrator – World Premiere

• Richard Strauss | Death and Transfiguration

• Maurice Ravel | Boléro

Want to experience a deeper connection with the music? Here’s how:

Sunday matinee attendees can attend Conversations with Kabaretti with guest Ted Nash to get an insider’s perspective on the music being performed. Join us Sunday, February 19 at 2pm. No RSVP required!

“It has been a dream of mine to write for orchestra, and I can’t think of one I’d like more to be my first experience,” Nash related in an email interview. “Over the years I have come to feel very connected to the community here in Santa Barbara, and having an opportunity to perform this music here with Nir conducting is a natural extension of the love I have for this city and the people here.”

No stranger to composition, Nash noted, “I have a lot of experience writing and arranging for big band and other ensembles, like string quartet, but never for full orchestra. There was a lot to learn about certain instruments, their extreme ranges (like the contra bassoon) and techniques and characteristics (like percussion). Over the years I have listened to and absorbed so much of the sound of the symphonic orchestra and feel that a lot of it is already inside my soul. I just need to let it all out. And now I have an opportunity to do so. I am excited, curious, and a little nervous.”

His piece

will be part of a program focusing on “transformation,” including the opening number Variations on a Nursery Song for Piano, and Orchestra, Op. 25 by Hungarian composer Ernst von Dohnányi. Nash’s work is next, followed by the tone poem Death and Transfiguration, Op. 24 (1888-1889) by German composer Richard Strauss. Maurice Ravel’s popular Boléro, will conclude the performance with Nash returning to the stage on saxophone.

The program came to life in the mind of Santa Barbara Symphony Music & Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti, who, inspired by life’s many examples of transformation, designed a program leading the audience through a transcendental experience of symphonic sound. Von Dohnányi’s Variations on a Nursery Song and Ravel’s Boléro represent both physical and mechanical metamorphoses with simple tunes that evolve into complex and imaginative orchestral masterpieces. Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration reflects human transitions and Nash’s personal journey is depicted in Transformation for Symphony Orchestra and Narrator. Each of the works, especially together on the program, exemplify the brilliant potential of musical metamorphosis.

“When Ted told me about his Transformation project and I had a chance to listen to the show, I asked him if he would transform this project for the classical concert hall,” Kabaretti recalled of how the program came together, “he graciously agreed - and we are thrilled to be the ones to share this world premiere with you!”

Inspiration for Nash’s composition Transformation: Personal Stories of Change,

Acceptance, and Evolution (as the first iteration was called) was initially seeded years earlier when he worked with actor Glenn Close on an album.

“Glenn is such a deep artist, and working with her was one of the greatest experiences of my life. She had appeared on my album, Presidential Suite. We kept in touch after that and talked about how we could collaborate on a large piece. We explored several themes, ultimately choosing Transformation. During the process of working with Ms. Close, I asked about her method of acting, what technical approach she took to develop her characters. Her answer: ‘I just use my imagination.’ At the time I didn’t think much about it, but over the next couple years I realized how inspiring an answer that was. Imagination is everything. I talk about that a lot now when I teach composing and improvisation. I mean, you can have all the technique and education, but what is the value of all that if you don’t use your imagination?”

Nash worked long hours creating the new Transformation despite his extensive experience with composition.

“Having great musicians play your music, bringing their expertise and experience to help realize your vision, is such a blessing. I am so lucky to have been a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis for the past 24 years and having some of greatest jazz musicians in the world play my compositions. I have composed or arranged at least 150 pieces. I am not sure exactly how I will react when I hear the Santa Barbara Symphony play these pieces for the first time, but I have an idea that it will be quite an emotional experience. Especially hearing Dear Dad, [one of the movements in Transformation] and having my son read his letter accompanied by the orchestra. That might make it hard to keep it together and play.”

Nash explained that “there is more similar than different between these forms of music. Jazz gets most of its harmonic base from European classical music. Charlie Parker can sound like Bach. (In fact, I wanted to be a classical clarinetist until I discovered Charlie Parker.) One big difference is that jazz is largely improvised and in classical music you don’t hear that very much. I love bringing improvisation, with its rich opportunity for personal expression, to the environment of the orchestra, but not in a way that the orchestra takes a back seat and acts as a background,

Jamie Lee Curtis A True Maltin Modern Master

WINNING OVER GENERATIONS OF MOVIE-GOERS with her blunt personality, wit, and impressive emotional range, Jamie Lee Curtis brings an infectious enthusiasm to each role she tackles. In celebration of her illustrious career, Curtis will accept the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Maltin Modern Master Award at 8pm on Saturday, February 11th at the Arlington Theatre.

“Jamie Lee Curtis has long since proven that she has staying power,” said film critic Leonard Maltin, who will be moderating Saturday’s event. “People want to watch her, whether it’s in a Halloween movie or an offbeat character role. She’s talented and charismatic, and in the process does her movie-star parents proud.”

Curtis’ tribute follows on the heels of her first Oscar nomination for her performance as Deirdre, a dowdy IRS inspector, in Everything Everywhere All At Once. In a role that verges on giving viewers whiplash, Curtis shifts between different iterations of her character — including an alter ego that lives with hot dog fingers — constantly returning to the original Deirdre’s tired persona. She has voiced great affection and understanding for Deirdre’s character in the months since the film’s release.

“When people want love and don’t get love, it hardens you,” Curtis told the New York Times in October 2022. “I know a lot of women who go home alone, and it breaks my heart — I know how soft they are, I know how much they long for connection and affection and contact with another human being.”

The daughter of Hollywood icons Janet Lee and Tony Curtis, Curtis began her road to stardom as Laurie Strode in the 1978 horror film Halloween. Curtis has continued to appear as Laurie over the past 44 years, evolving her character from the terrified teenage babysitter seen in the first Halloween film to the

determined, calculative figure of the franchise’s 2022 conclusion, Halloween Ends. The Halloween franchise has now grossed over $800 million.

Her other “scream queen” roles have included The Fog and Prom Night

However, the 1988 cult classic A Fish Called Wanda introduced Curtis to a whole new audience of moviegoers and allowed Curtis to show off her comedy skills. Her funny, sexy, and smart performance as a diamondhungry con artist earned Curtis BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations.

Ever faithful to her identity as a “truthteller,” Curtis has since demonstrated her powerful ability to impart heartfelt emotions in coming-ofage stories such as My Girl, wit and wisdom in comedies like Freaky Friday, and intrigue, such as in the mystery blockbuster Knives Out

Curtis spoke about why she works to champion truth in each of her roles and everyday life in a December 2022 LA Times interview.

“We live in a world of lies,” shared Curtis. “Everywhere we look seems somewhat fraudulent. Did I wear makeup today? Yes. Did I do fancy pictures on a fancy panel? Yes. Do I look like this in my regular life? No. I wear fuzzy Birkenstocks and black yoga pants and a very specific black button-down shirt. All day, every day. I don’t wear makeup, I keep my hair short so I don’t have to do anything — because I’m obsessed with truth. I’m obsessed with the demystification of it.”

Santa Barbara International Film Festival champion actress

Cate Blanchett

in a league of her own

Blanchett to Receive Second Career SBIFF

Outstanding Performer of the Year Award

FOR A TREMENDOUS THIRD

TIME, Cate Blanchett will be awarded at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for her acting prowess. After receiving the 2008 Maltin Modern Master Award, Blanchett has now been selected twice to receive the SBIFF Outstanding Performer of the Year Award—once in 2014 for her role in Blue Jasmine, and again this year for Tár. The tribute will take place Friday, February 10th at 8pm at the Arlington Theatre.

“Cate Blanchett is an artist that has nothing left to prove; she is one of the most brilliant actresses ever - yet she keeps challenging herself and proving over and over again that she’s the most outstanding performer!” said SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling.

Blanchett has almost 100 acting credits to her name. Her first role was in 1990’s Kaboria, where she was an extra during a dancing scene, followed by a short list of Australian films until her breakout role in 1998’s Elizabeth. She received her first Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her performance as Queen Elizabeth I and her first Golden Globe win

for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.

Since then, Blanchett has received 20 Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. To date, she has won four Golden Globe awards and two Academy Awards. She is currently nominated for a 2023 Academy Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Blanchett’s childhood was marked by the loss of her father at age ten. She worked at a nursing home in her early adulthood, later enrolling to study economics and fine art at the University of Melbourne. She dropped out after a year to travel the world. It was on this journey that Blanchett’s acting career began.

While backpacking through Egypt, she met a casting director who hired her as an extra for Kaboria. Blanchett shared with The Herald that the experience was both “boring” and “embarrassing.” It must have had some strong subliminal impact, however, because Blanchett soon enrolled in the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney, Australia, graduating with a Bachelor of

Fine Arts in 1992.

Over the course of her career, Blanchett has proven herself to be amongst the best character actors of her generation, with roles ranging from monarchs, a goddess of death, and most recently, a classical music composer. In Manifesto, Blanchett performs an astounding 13 roles in one film, where she is able to fully display her chameleonic ability to allow characters

to speak through her. 2022’s Tár shows Blanchett as methodical, cruel, and careless of the human toll that her pursuit of artistic perfection takes.

“I think the questions for me, really, are not so much about agenda, but what is permissible when trying to approach something great?” Blanchett said of her role in Tár to Entertainment Weekly. “And what are the costs?”

Social Justice Spotlight Returns to SBIFF

SERIES contributes a unique focus at the SBIFF. The festival has long supported films that entertain and enlighten while addressing some of the most immediate social and environmental issues.  SBIFF is one of very few prominent film festivals that has a dedicated social justice side bar.

In addition, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Santa Barbara/Tri-Counties supports an ADL Stand Up Award, given to a film “that exemplifies the impact storytelling can have in fostering mutual understanding and respect.” The ADL has recently led a strong response to the antisemitic leafleting in Santa Barbara and Isla Vista. Prior to SBIFF’s opening night, ADL has already announced its 2023 winner, The Quiet Girl, which will play twice: at 6pm on Wednesday, Feb. 15th at Metro 4 Theatre, #4, and at 5pm on Thursday, Feb. 16th, at Metro 4 Theatre #1.

SBIFF is a feast for those looking to consume substantive fare that promises a journey into socially relevant issues. Social justice films can be a bit of a hard sell, often considered what you watch because “it’s good for you” but SBIFF’s programmers ensure the films are compelling and rewarding.

This year’s crop of social justice docs cover the personal to the global, from the Pacific Coast Highway to South Africa.

The following are the social justice films which are all in competition.  Seeing one may be “good for you…”

21 Miles in Malibu: An exposé revealing PCH as one of the deadliest roads in America following a group of committed locals as they try to change its legacy. Director Nic Davis stated, “my goal was to create something shocking and

visceral but also to capture the subtle emotion of those affected.” It will screen at 8:40pm on Thursday, Feb. 16th, at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3, and at 7:40pm on Saturday, Feb. 18th at Fiesta 5 Theatre Aud. #4.

Black Mambas: The tale of South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching patrol in Kruger National Park. The story and themes grow richer as the women face race and gender bias from the creators of the unit that control them. As a reviewer remarked, the film is an “twin portrait of both heroic and dubious do gooders.” Screenings will be held at 2:40pm on Thursday, Feb. 9th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3, and at 8:30am on Saturday, Feb. 11th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #4.

The Dirty Divide: Los Angeles’ skid row is a cauldron of human suffering. The issue of people experiencing homelessness dominated the recent mayoral race and policy makers continue to grapple with an effective response. The Dirty Divide chronicles community organizers fighting for the rights of residents to live in dignity and peace. Screenings will be held at 2:20pm on Wednesday, Feb. 15th, at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #2, and at 8pm on Friday, Feb. 17th at Metro 4 Theatre, Aud. #1.

Into My Name (Nel mio nome): A heartfelt documentary that follows four friends who are resolved to selfdetermine their gender identities. The film is an intimate portrait of their struggles, big and small, but never veers into voyeurism. The executive producer described it as “a meditation on trans humanity.” It will screen at 9pm on Tuesday, Feb. 14th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #4, and at 4pm on Thursday, Feb. 16th at Fiesta 5 Theatre Aud. #2.

Lyra: This poignant but optimistic tale of activism in post-conflict Northern Ireland is told through the life of fearless writer and

activist Lyra who was shot dead at age 29, collateral damage of a riot in Derry. The film carries the perspective of the generation of “cease fire” babies growing up after peace came to Northern Ireland. Screenings will be hosted at 4:20pm on Monday, Feb. 13th at Fiesta 5 Theatre Aud. #4, and at 11:40am on Tuesday, Feb. 14th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3.

My Name is Happy: An inspiring film that follows an aspiring Turkish popstar, Mutlu Kaya, who escapes an attempt on her life. However, she doesn’t let the injuries she sustained stop her from pursuing her dream of being a singer, and she now has 1.5 million followers on Tik Tok. It will screen at 11:40am on Thursday, Feb. 9th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3, and at 8am on Monday, Feb. 13th at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #1.

The Right to Read: Produced by Levar Burton, The Right to Read is a vivid portrait of Oakland NAACP activist Kareem Weaver, who addresses literacy across a number of dimensions. The film’s center is the notion that “literacy is our greatest civil right.” Screenings will be held at 2:40pm on Saturday, Feb. 11th and at 11:40am on Sunday, Feb. 12th, both at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3.

Wade in the Water: A Journey into Black Surfing and Aquatic Culture: Surfing films that break barriers, honor its history and treat surfing as cultural exchange are a SBIFF specialty. Wade in the Water tells the 1,000 year-old history of Black surfing, with a focus on pioneering surfers out of Santa Monica. It’s a rich and little-known history but a story waiting to be told. It will be screened at 5:40pm on Saturday, Feb. 11th and at 2:40pm on Sunday, Feb. 12th, both at Metro 4 Theatre Aud. #3.

Bringing Back Our Wetland

DEMONSTRATING THE POWER OF COMMUNITY when it comes to environmental action, Bringing Back Our Wetland chronicles a true story of hard work and hope. Written, directed, and produced by local Michael Love, the documentary follows Santa Barbara community members’ efforts to restore a wetland to its natural state after it had been turned into a golf course over 50 years ago.

The film will have its world premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, with screenings at 8:40pm on Monday, February 13th at the Metro 4 Theatre, Auditorium #3, and at 1pm on Wednesday, February 15th at the Fiesta 5 Theatre, Auditorium #2.

“I hope this film will convey the message that people can reverse environmental degradation by working together with incredible results,” shared Love. “It was certainly not easy, but it can be done, and I hope it inspires more of the same from our wonderful Santa Barbara community.”

Love’s filmmaking career dates back to his teenage years in Mexico City. A successful screenwriter for over 30 years, his past major works have included the Academy Award-nominated biographical drama Gaby, A True Story and For Greater Glory

In 2012, Love made The Santa Ynez River Wilderness, his first environmental film

Open 1-3pm, Saturday February 11th

examining Santa Barbara County’s breathtaking natural surroundings. This kicked off his ongoing fascination with exploring the region through film.

“Living here inspired me to learn more about the natural world and share it through film,” said Love. “In that process I got the opportunity to work with wonderful scientists and environmental leaders who increased my desire to document the environment and the actions we can take to protect it.”

Love began creating Bringing Back Our Wetland in 2016, working with UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration and its Director of Ecosystem Management, Lisa Stratton. The film follows the community’s efforts to purchase and ultimately restore a golf course back into the wetland it was decades ago.

“I’d say the biggest surprise was how moved I was when the Chumash Community came to bless the restored wetland,” said Love. “This place was part of a wetland complex that included a deep water bay where Santa Barbara Airport is now and Mescalitan Island, which had about a thousand inhabitants. To have that community come and celebrate the achievement was very special and felt like a homecoming.”

GRACE POINT MARKS A PLACE OF DEPARTURE FOR DIRECTOR RORY

KARPF, who, until now, had never directed a scripted film. His first theatrical release was in 2007 for Dale, an archival documentary about the NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt’s life. Since then, he has directed several sports-focused films for ESPN.

Grace Point will be screened Saturday, February 11th at 8:40pm in the Metro 4 Theatre Aud #3, as well as Saturday February 18th at 4:20pm in the Fiesta 5 Theatre Aud #4.

“I started in documentary filmmaking right out of college with NFL Films,” said Karpf. “Career highlights have been creating a series with Snoop Dogg for Netflix and working with Rob Lowe on various unscripted projects. Also, putting my bulldog, Dozer, in my first scripted project was pretty awesome.”

Karpf and Lowe, a Montecito resident, met in 2018 while working on Madness in the Hills, a documentary about the catastrophic Thomas Fire and subsequent 2018 mudslide. It was during this process that Karpf was introduced to Lowe’s son, John, who would eventually come to be the star of Grace Point

“This experience was very personal to me,”

said John Lowe. “I related so deeply with my character and his struggles with sobriety that I knew this could be a special project. I am really proud of what we accomplished.”

Originally written by Paul Russell Smith, Grace Point follows a teen on his way to a rehab program, who has hostile encounters with the locals in a small town while trying to escape his own demons. Karpf rewrote it to fit it to a smaller budget, and also to personalize the story for John Lowe, who has been vocal about his own struggles with addiction and his sobriety journey.

“I’m grateful John Owen has trusted me to tell this deeply personal story for his feature film debut, as I transition from documentaries into narrative storytelling,” said filmmaker Karpf. “As a coming-of-age thriller, I’m hoping Grace Point takes the audience on a thought-provoking, entertaining journey.”

Larry J. Feinberg To Retire As Art Museum Director

COMMUNITY ADVOCATE AND THE LEADER of Santa Barbara’s most prestigious art institution, Larry J. Feinberg, the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and CEO of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art will retire, according to an announcement made by the museum this week.

“Our gem of a museum will long benefit from the outstanding leadership of Larry Feinberg,” stated Nicholas Mutton, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “By far the longest tenured of our past Directors, Larry has guided SBMA to new levels of accomplishment and recognition. Through personal dedication, Larry assisted in raising $50 million for the Imagine More capital campaign and oversaw the most significant renovation in the Museum’s history, which assures the integrity of the building’s structure and permanent collection for the community’s future enjoyment. In addition, he was responsible for bringing many exhibitions of major importance to the Museum to fulfill our mission of ‘integrating art into the lives of people.”

Feinberg took up his post at SBMA in March 2008 and brought with him more than 30 years of museum experience. His plans to leave later in the year will allow him to continue in his position through a transition process that will commence with a formal search for his successor. The Museum’s Board of Trustees will be fully engaged in a search for new leadership and key stakeholders will be involved in the selection process.

“His stewardship of the institution through the very difficult COVID years without impacting the staff has set us up for continued success. The Museum’s outreach programs are back in full force, including those serving schools, teachers, adults, and families,” Mutton continued. “The Board extends a deep appreciation for the outstanding work he has done.”

In describing his 15-year tenure at SBMA, the Museum notes, Feinberg has raised the stature of the Museum nationally and internationally by elevating its exhibitions programs and the diversity of its collection. Under his leadership, major exhibitions were organized and presented at SBMA along with scholarly publications, including Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources (2022), Puja and Piety (2016), Delacroix and the Matter of Finish (2013), Labour and Wait (2013), The Artful Recluse: Painting, Poetry, and Politics in 17th-Century China (2013), and Picasso and Braque: The Cubist Experiment, 1910 – 1912 (2011).

Feinberg noted, “With a very talented and hardworking staff and a dedicated and supportive board of trustees, together we have accomplished over the past 15 years virtually everything we set out to do. I feel honored to have been a part of this phase in SBMA’s history and take great pride in the fact that the Museum is in a stronger position to serve the community.”

During Feinberg’s time at the Museum, SBMA’s Education Department greatly expanded its programs, including outreach into the schools throughout Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, and beyond. Before COVID, more than 25,000 students were involved annually and more than 1,100 teachers trained each year in how to use the visual arts to teach across the curriculum. Partnerships were established and strengthened among more than 40 other educational and cultural institutions. Adult education programs were significantly expanded with the development of lecture series and classes, including Art Matters, Curator’s Choice, Director’s Dialogue, Parallel Stories, Writing in the Galleries, Sketching in the Galleries, various art-making workshops, and scholarly symposia.

All the while, the Museum’s leadership achieved continued fiscal stability, and SBMA is one of only a small number of non-profits to receive Charity Navigator’s highest rating of four stars for the last six years in a row.

Previous to SBMA, Feinberg had 30 years of curatorial experience in major museums, including the Allen Art Museum of Oberlin College, The Frick Collection, the National Gallery of Art, and, between 1991 and 2008, the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was the Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Curator in the Department of Medieval through Modern European Painting, and Modern European Sculpture.

After his retirement, Feinberg plans to spend more time traveling and writing, and perhaps teaching and consulting. He and his wife, Starr Siegele, will continue to live in Santa Barbara.

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is one of the finest museums on the West coast and is celebrated for the superb quality of its permanent collection. Its mission is to integrate art into the lives of people through internationally recognized exhibitions and special programs, as well as the thoughtful presentation of its permanent collection.

Carbajal Secures Money for Monarchs

FUNDING FOR CRITICAL MONARCH BUTTERFLY AND POLLINATOR CONSERVATION has more than doubled since the last fiscal year thanks to U.S. Representatives Salud Carbajal (CA-24) and Jimmy Panetta (CA-19), who managed to secure $10 million.

$3 million of the funds were acquired through the Monarch and Pollinator Highway Program (MPHP), which promotes pollinator-friendly practices on roadsides and highway rights-of-way, including the planting and seeding of beneficial local plants. Funding is available to states and Native American tribes to help conserve and protect natural habitats. The MPHP was created as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in 2021 with the support of Panetta and Carbajal.

"I proudly represent two major monarch groves on the Central Coast of California: Pismo Beach and Goleta – both of which have been devastated by the dramatic drop off of monarch populations that we have seen over the past two decades. This decline has been a wake-up call for scientists, conservationists, and lovers of the monarch who come from far and wide to see their splendor each year,” said Rep. Carbajal. www.carbajal.house.gov

Voice Magazine Named Newspaper Of Record for City of Santa Barbara

Voice Magazine is a general circulation and legally adjudicated publication in Santa Barbara County, with a weekly circulation of 28,000.

Occupancy Tax Rise Creates Surplus Revenue Results

REFLECTING SUSTAINED GROWTH of transient occupancy tax revenues, the City of Santa Barbara collected $1.7 million in the month ended December 31st 2022. These revenues were about 2.9 percent above the monthly city budget projection. The City has collected $17.6 million through December, the sixth month in the City’s fiscal year and at this rate will exceed the City’s adopted TOT budget of $28.3 million. The City’s TOT tax rate is 12 percent. Ten percent goes to the City’s General Fund and the remaining two percent goes to the Creeks/Clean Water Fund.

Montecito Bank & Trust Closes Year With $2.29 Billion in Assets

REPORTING A NET INCOME OF $18.27 MILLION, Montecito Bank & Trust showed an increase of 4.22 percent year-over-year, while assets closed the year at $2.29 billion, down 2.8 percent or $65.95 million. Loans grew $20.92 million finishing at $1.19 billion, an increase of 1.78 percent. Excluding the payoff of PPP loans, loans grew $64.0 million or 5.66 percent. Deposits ended the year at $2.11 billion, down 1.03 percent for the year ending 12/31/2022. The bank’s total riskbased capital remains very strong at 14.22 percent, far exceeding the ten percent regulatory minimum required to be considered well capitalized.

“The Bank’s strong earnings and profitability performance allowed us to celebrate and honor our Founder, Michael Towbes, by increasing our 20th annual Community Dividends awards to over $2 million this year, while also enabling us to continue investing in our digital platforms, our technology infrastructure, and our cyber security programs,” noted Chairman and CEO Janet Garufis. “With continued weak loan demand and rising interest rates creating headwinds in 2023,” Garufis noted she is “confident that the Bank’s strong balance sheet and highperforming loan portfolio will successfully lead Montecito Bank & Trust through these economic headwinds, and that our locally based teams remain resolute in their commitment to working with our clients, delivering a world-class experience and continuing our unwavering support of the communities we serve.”

Montecito Bank & Trust is the oldest and largest locally owned community bank in the Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Founded in 1975, the bank celebrated its 47th anniversary on March 17, 2022 and operates 12 branch offices in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Santa Maria, Solvang, Montecito, Carpinteria, Ventura, Camarillo and Westlake Village.

but more integrated, bringing the two forms together.”

“I learned so much during the months I worked on this music,” he explained of the challenges. “There are certain instruments in the orchestra I realized I didn’t know enough about. I didn’t want to avoid certain instruments due to my lack of experience with them, so I really tried to embrace them. I have never written for the bassoon, but love the sound so much. So one of the pieces features the bassoon. Again, using Ms. Close’s idea of imagination, I let this guide me as much as possible. Often, I close my eyes and imagine where the piece is going, where it needs and wants to go. If I can hear something I can usually capture it.”

Part of the magic this weekend’s concerts will be the musicians playing the music. Nash himself has led a storied career. A child of a well-known family of jazz and studio musicians in Los Angeles, Nash has become one of the most significant jazz composers of the 21st century. He is co-founder of the New Yorkbased nonprofit Composers Collective.

“I love the collaborative nature of this - jazz meets classical. I am looking forward to hearing the incredible pianist Josh Nelson and his trio with Luca Alemanno on bass and Dan Schnelle on drums in the context of the orchestra.”

Nash, on solo saxophone, joined by the Los Angeles-based Josh Nelson Trio, will perform his new version of Transformation with the Symphony, including two new pieces, and the world premiere of Nash’s extensive orchestrations.

“I love that, after years of working on technique and theoretical understanding, I realize that it all comes down to trust. Trusting you will be in the moment to be creative, trusting you will listen to the musicians you are playing with and be reactive, and trusting that, although this performance is just one moment in time, there will be many more to come,” he shared.

For von Dohnányi’s Variations on a Nursery Song for Piano, and Orchestra, Op. 25, the Symphony’s very own Natasha Kislenko, Principal Piano, and a local musical virtuoso and faculty member at UCSB and the Music Academy of the West, will also demonstrate the power of transformation through a piece on the piano, playing variations on a theme that everyone in the audience knows and loves – Twinkle, Twinkle.

Also during Nash’s Symphony residency, he has worked with local musicians. The Symphony partners with many area organizations and by creating artist residencies, is providing an enriching learning experience to local student musicians. In collaboration with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and inspired by the Transformation theme, Nash is leading an educational program taking place throughout January and February 2023. Members of the Santa Barbara Symphony’s own Youth Ensembles

will be among the local student musicians benefitting from this exploratory musical experience.

“This workshop is much more than a music lesson,” shared Kabaretti. “With his unique style, Ted shares the concept of transformation with students, allowing them to connect music to their own real-life experiences. Through this connection grows a belief in one’s musical skills and growth as a human being.”

Nash added, “Part of being a teacher is understanding that you are not there to demand, dictate, or decide things for people, but to inspire and encourage them to find their own voice and experience their own journey. Also, I often learn just as much as the students when I teach. And the experience of composing and playing with the Symphony has allowed me to have my own journey and to learn something about myself in the process.”

Transformation is generously supported by Principal Concert Sponsor, Zegar Family Foundation; Artist Sponsor, Marilyn & Richard Mazess; and Selection Sponsors, Mark & Shelley Bookspan, Karen Drown & John Trotti, and Vista del Monte Retirement Community.

70th Anniversary Season Sponsor: Sarah and Roger Chrisman; 70th Anniversary Corporate Sponsor: Montecito Bank & Trust; 70th Anniversary Grand Venue Sponsor: Granada Theatre.

California Premiere of An American Dream

Exploring a dark chapter of American history

OPERA SANTA BARBARA’S EXPLORATION OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN

DRAMAS continues in 2023 with the California premiere of An American Dream by Jack Perla and Jessica Murphy Moo on Saturday, February 18th at 2:30 and 7:30pm at the Lobero Theater. Set in the Pacific Northwest during World War II, An American Dream explores and melds the lives of two women: a Japanese American forcibly removed from her home during the mass incarceration of the Japanese American community, and a German Jewish immigrant preoccupied with those she left in Germany. The Seattle Times, in Seattle Opera’s 2015 premiere, called the production “a heart-wrenching opera... eloquent and moving.”

Announcing the California premier, Kostis Protopapas, Opera Santa Barbara Artistic and General Director stated, “Art has a powerful way to illustrate history and cast light into even the darkest corners of the human experience. Having seen An American Dream in Seattle, it’s a powerful piece of musical theater that I have wanted to produce ever since.”

Bringing contemporary opera to Santa Barbara is an essential aspect of Opera SB’s mission. “This is a perfect story for our company and the perfect time … truly a fascinating, often overlooked, chapter in American history,” he added.

In the role of Hiroko Kobayashi, the Japanese-American mother, Opera SB proudly welcomes Santa Barbara native mezzo-soprano Nina Yoshida-Nelsen, who created the role of Hiroko in the opera’s 2015 premiere and has appeared in nearly all subsequent productions. She is perhaps

best known for her countless performances of Suzuki in Madama Butterfly with opera companies throughout North America and Europe, and for creating roles in seven world premieres. In recent years Yoshida-Nelsen has also played a leading role as an advocate for equity in the arts.

An American Dream began as a community storytelling project with which Yoshida-Nelsen was involved, asking the question: ‘If you had to leave your home today and couldn’t return, what would you take with you, and why is that object – that connection to your past – so important?’ What evolved from this inquiry was a tale based on the personal experiences of several Puget Sound residents. For YoshidaNelsen the story is deeply personal: her grandparents were among those detained behind guard towers and barbed wire along with over 120,000 other Japanese Americans during WWII.

“Bringing An American Dream home to Santa Barbara is an incredible honor for me”, shared Yoshida Nelsen. “The aria I sing in the opera was written specifically for me after the librettist interviewed my grandma about her experiences being incarcerated during WWII. Not only is this opera a privilege for me to share but more importantly, it feels like it is my responsibility to tell Japanese American history that is not often taught in schools. The opportunity to share this story with my community is extremely powerful and poignant to me.”

As the opera begins, we see a Japanese American family burning their precious belongings before they are incarcerated during WWII. The daughter, Setsuko, hides her beloved Hinamatsuri doll before they are forced to leave their home. Newlyweds Jim and Eva move into the home. Eva, a German Jewish immigrant preoccupied by her family’s situation in Germany, doesn’t know the circumstances by which her Irish Catholic husband acquired the home. She slowly discovers the truth – about the family in whose house she moved, and the fate of her own.

As an introduction to An American Dream in its historical context, a community conversation was held on February 4th at the Faulkner Gallery. An overflowing crowd attended as Mayor Randy Rowse spoke in behalf of the City, sharing, “The story of the Japanese American community is one of the triumph of the human spirit as our returning residents overcame injustices and succeeded through industry and integrity to build the Santa Barbara we enjoy today. I am honored to have an opportunity to recognize and appreciate their contributions.” Moderated by Yoshida-Nelsen against the background of Hinamatsuri dolls, donated for their significance in the opera, a panel of Japanese American internees and their descendants were introduced: Dr. Paul Mori of Westmont College, Ruke Fukumura, 100 years old, still working at Tri-County Produce, and Hideko Malis, who was detained in a Santa Anita Race Track stable. The panelists shared their experience in the camps and answered questions from the packed gallery. Yoshida-Nelsen exclaimed,“I was pleased and surprised that there was such interest…and am so grateful!”

Opera Santa Barbara’s new production of An American Dream is directed by Richard Gammon in his company debut. He has previously directed two other productions of the piece, with set and projection designer Yuki Izumihara (Semele and Tosca, 2022) The cast features Yoshida-Nelsen, Janet Szepei Todd, and Paul Chwe MinChul An. Portraying two other members of the Kobayashi family in their OSB debuts are Audrey Babcock and Ben Lowe. Houston based conductor Eiki Isomura will conduct the 15-member ensemble from the Opera Santa Barbara Orchestra.

In addition to the public performances, a school matinee performance will be offered on February 16th, at 10am. Teachers interested in bringing groups please contact tim@operasb.org

Santa Barbara Company to Produce its 18th Super Bowl

Scholarship Foundation Honors 23 Student Artists, Presents Students’ Art at SB Museum of Art Through February 12th

23 LOCAL STUDENT ARTISTS received support to pursue their dreams and the chance to share their art with the community when the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara’s 2023 Art Scholarship Competition hosted its reception late last month. Each winner will receive a scholarship and have their art exhibited in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Family Resource Center through February 12th.

“This was our first art scholarship reception in three years, and there was a remarkable electricity in the air,” said Mary Dwyer, interim president and CEO of the Scholarship Foundation. “The student work on exhibit was superb, and it was evident that all assembled enjoyed celebrating the students’ creative triumphs in person once again. The Scholarship Foundation is proud to partner with area art teachers and their talented students.”

The Scholarship Foundation invites high school seniors every year to submit a portfolio of original work to be judged by a panel of prominent local artists. Each winner receives a $2,500 scholarship with an additional $1,000 for the winner of best in show. Annabel Contreras from Dos Pueblos High School was awarded the Schall Family Best of Show Prize. The other 2023 art scholarship winners are Aya Al Sabeh (Dos Pueblos HS), Ella Bailey (Santa Barbara HS), Olivia Broughton (Carpinteria HS), Logan Bryce (Dos Pueblos HS), Sophia Chamorro (Santa Barbara HS), Emma Coombes (San Marcos HS), Avala Elwood (Providence School), Elliott Gleason (Dos Pueblos HS), Molly Grant (Alta Vista Alternative HS), Jonathan Guerrero Palma (San Marcos HS), Kassy Guinto (Providence School), Jackson Leck (San Marcos HS), Summer McCeney (Dos Pueblos HS), Andrew McEachen (Dos Pueblos HS), Ava Miller (Santa Barbara HS), Denisse Navarrete (Dos Pueblos HS), Ella Piersma (San Marcos HS), William Roberts (San Marcos High School), Carolina Torres (San Marcos HS), Kiana Torrijos (Dos Pueblos High School), Mia Von Protz (Dos Pueblos HS), and Grace Wyman (Santa Barbara HS).

THE BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT IN THE US will be broadcast in Spanish throughout Latin America thanks to the efforts of a Santa Barbara-based company. For the eighth time in nine years, Cultural Global Media is coordinating all aspects of the live Super Bowl production for Fox Sports Latin America.

When Philadelphia faces Kansas City it will be a special moment for CGM and its founder and owner David Bolton. A graduate of Santa Barbara High, he is beginning his 35th year of producing live national sports broadcasts.

“We are honored that the NFL and Fox Sports executives in Mexico City again have the confidence in our work to hire us for this 57th Super Bowl,” said Bolton who began his television career at KEYT in 1982. “Every Super Bowl is memorable. We are fortunate to have a strong, talented, and dedicated production team. Some of the camera and audio operators have worked with us for more than 20 years. On the field it’s always a team effort. It’s the same for us on the production side. A lot goes into pulling off a solid broadcast. It’s definitely a team effort in our production truck.”

The Santa Barbara company is responsible for everything from production truck to cameras, satellite coordination, camera, audio and replay operators, plus logistics with the NFL. In nine years of coordinating NFL broadcasts, CGM has produced Super Bowls and multiple NFC playoff and championship games. “These stadiums are so modern and so energetic on game day. It is truly an honor to be able to be a part of these big games,” said Bolton.

One of Bolton’s early career ideas wa s creating a local sports show on Santa Barbara TV, which developed into KEYT’s Friday Football Focus — the longest running non-news show on local television. This weekend it will be the 57th edition of the Super Bowl for an international Spanish-speaking audience.

Major Success for Foodbank Fundraising

THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY OF THE SANTA BARBARA COMMUNITY, big things are on the way for the Foodbank. Over the course of an 18-month private campaign and with last fall’s public phase (September 1st-December 31st), the organization was able to raise $20 million.

“This campaign was successful thanks to individual contributions from $20 donations to leadership gifts of over $1 million, along with public, private, and government sources,” explained Foodbank CEO Erik Talkin. “The Sharehouse truly belongs to the entire community.”

Of the $20 million, $1.5 million of the support was federal funding procured by Congressmember Salud Carbajal who advocated tirelessly for the project at the national level. Congressmember Carbajal is expected to make a visit to tour the facility this week to share his comments and speak with CEO Erik Talkin.

During the end-of-year public campaign, the Foodbank additionally raised $4 million to support general operations along with nutrition educations programs and ongoing disaster readiness initiatives, such as Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trainings.

The Foodbank’s first step is to purchase and modify their Sharehouse and build a space that will increase their cold storage capacity tenfold. There will also be new Nutrition Promotion Center and Volunteer Center, and administrative offices. Once operational, Sharehouse will allow the Foodbank to increase their services for food insecure community members county wide, and will ensure that south county is adequately prepared for emergency food needs during future large-scale disasters.

The Sharehouse, located at 80 Coromar Drive in Goleta, signals the end of a decadelong search for a comprehensive south county warehouse and administrative facility. The Sharehouse name indicates it will serve as more than just a warehouse; it will be a comprehensive center where the community can “share food, education and hope.”

Selling Kabul

A Timely Story of Family & Determination

WORDS ALMOST FALL SHORT of describing the emotional impact of viewing Selling Kabul, the Ensemble Theatre Company’s first 2023 production. Set in Kabul during the 2013 partial withdrawal of American military forces, the drama reckons with family dynamics, questions of moral integrity, and personal identity under the most trying circumstances.

Masterfully tackling this maelstrom of issues is a cast of four seasoned actors, led by director Nike Douglas. Guidance from Dialect Coach and Cultural Advisor Mustafa Haidari, who hails from Kabul, ensures that the production remains as authentic as it is powerful, making Selling Kabul the most compelling drama the New Vic Theatre has witnessed in recent memory. Performances will continue through February 19th.

The play opens on the day Taroon (Rishan Dhamija), an Afghan man and former U.S. Army interpreter, welcomes the birth of his first child. However, instead of celebrating in the hospital with his wife, Taroon is forced to receive all news through his sister, Afiya (Nitya Vidyasagar), who has been hiding Taroon in her apartment for four months. Their conversations are interrupted by Afiya’s neighbor, Leyla (Christine Mirzayan), who becomes an inadvertent accessory to Taroon’s concealment. Tensions rise as it becomes clear that local Taliban forces are

aware of Taroon’s presence in the city, forcing Afiya and her husband, Jawid (Beejan Land) to figure out how to get Taroon out of the country that night.

The knowledge that playwright Sylvia Khoury penned Selling Kabul prior to the Taliban’s complete takeover in 2021 only increases the play’s relevance. An air of dramatic irony surrounds the characters’ conversations, as audience members grow painfully aware that their concerns over Afghanistan’s future will eventually be realized.

Heightening this anxiety is the play’s open-ended nature. As the play is restricted to one day’s events in the confines of Afiya’s apartment, audience members are left with an idea of what will happen to Taroon and those who helped him, but no definitive conclusions. Essentially, Selling Kabul is an insightful work that asks viewers to consider the sheer number of lives upended by totalitarianism worldwide.

Leading the charge of this political family story are two strong female characters, making Selling Kabul at its core a tale of womanhood. As Afiya, Vidyasagar delivers a performance full of love and dignity, full of sisterly teasing, anger, and grief. Mirzayan skillfully matches Vidyasagar’s energy, evolving from a chatty new mother to a woman suffering immeasurable loss. Consistently, the duo demonstrates the struggles of living in a society that oppresses women, revealing their hopes, passions, and vibrant personalities within the safety of their homes.

Dhamija and Land continue this theme of identity through their nuanced performances. As Taroon, Dhamija embodies a man who questions if his hiding is the brave or correct decision to make. Land delivers an especially complex performance, revealing Jawid as a determined husband facing the moral dilemma of taking actions that will protect his family, but will also betray his homeland.

Ultimately, Selling Kabul offers a searing examination of humans’ capacity for resilience, bravery, and love that will linger with viewers long after they exit the theater. Performances continue through February 19th at the New Vic Theatre. For tickets visit www.etcsb.org

No More Recession, Period

ISAID LAST WEEK, the U.S. economy has done it again with stronger than predicted fourth quarter GDP growth. This time it’s another record employment gain that will shock most economists and professional prognosticaters to their roots.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 517,000 in January, and the unemployment rate dropped to 3.4 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. It was double the estimates of job growth for January; whereas just 223,000 nonfarm payroll jobs were created in December.

economic growth continuing as the $trillions in government spending over the past two years gets put into a more productive economy.

“Job growth was widespread, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike,” said the BLS.

Why wouldn’t this be with a five-year allocation of $550 billion in federal investments in America’s infrastructure to upgrade highways and major roads, bridges, airports, ports, and water systems?

Additional investments cover expansions and improvements to the nation’s broadband access, public transportation systems, and energy grid infrastructure, as I said last week, all boosters to economic growth.

In fact, all sectors had job growth except for the information services. Is Silicon Valley cutting jobs because its revenues are shrinking? Apple, Google, Microsoft have all announced layoffs.

President Biden gave a short announcement this morning that a total 12 million jobs were created in his first two years in office, also a record. It’s now looking like we should anticipate a record year of recovery rather than worry about an incipient recession, with

The drop from 3.5 percent to 3.4 percent unemployment was the lowest level since 1969 and the number of hours people work jumped 0.3 hours to 34.7 hours, matching the highest level in a year.

The fall in wage inflation will upset the Fed most, since the report showed that average annual hourly wage growth had dropped to 4.4 percent. And it is falling with a stronger job market.

So, inflation isn’t endangering job growth, the opposite is happening. The most important figure in the Q4 GDP report was the inflation rate rose at an annual 3.2 percent pace in Q4, falling from a 4.3 percent advance in the prior three-month period.

The so-called inflation deflator used in the Bureau of Economic Analysis that

measures the aggregate prices for all goods and services transacted domestically signals inflation will continue to decline. So why shouldn’t we be hopeful that 2023 might be a better year for Americans?

The fastest job growth was in sectors that most benefit the public—Education & Health, Leisure/Hospitality, Professional/ Business, and Government.

In the face of a rising tide of prosperity for all, does the Fed dare to raise interest rates much further?

Harbor Operations Almost Back to Normal

HOW DO WE GO FROM SUNNY TO BLISTERY SUNDAYS AND BACK AGAIN?

Some weekends the harbor and waterfront has that New York City ambiance with wall-to-wall people, others a little more than a few stalls along Cabrillo Boulevard’s famed Art Walk and a similar vibe along the harbor walkway. The occasional visitor is wrapped in winter warmies and wet weather boots: My last visit, on the other hand, had me dressed like summer…well, maybe not quite, it’s still February!

In anticipation of another storm expected to arrive it seemed prudent to check out the results of the dredging progress at the harbor’s entrance before needing an umbrella. It was a good thing because my visit revealed much more that just that. Although higher than average tides remained, the clean-up under the direction of the Waterfront Department had made huge strides to create a semblance of order.

The rock berms had grown higher and the beaches and parking lots were cleared of most of the debris. Cushman Construction had been hired to do the job, one that was well underway. Heavy equipment built a rock wall and sand berm near the Yacht Club with the California Coastal Commission’s emergency permit for a 300- to 400-foot rock revetment to back fill and replace eroded coastal land between the Yacht Club building and the Harbor West parking lot. Additionally heavy equipment materialized to install an underground pipe extending from half the Yacht Club’s parking lot to Marina One, making access to those areas impossible. But what seemed like overnight, the pipe was in place hidden beneath a newly cemented walkway as if nothing had happened. Now how’s that for instant improvements and upgrades in the harbor area?

Emergency dredging operations to clear the harbor entrance had been well underway to remove the large amount of sand and sediment that was pushed into the narrow passage during the recent storms – in fact, 30,000 cubic yards of sand! Official word from the Waterfront Department announced that Pacific Dredge was awarded the contract and its dredge, affectionately named “Sandpiper,” was able to finish the job by the end of last month. Once again watercraft can be seen going in and out of the harbor and I’m told the Yacht Club will resume its racing season despite the clubhouse closure. Other operations and upgrades continue throughout the harbor and waterfront in anticipation of continuing weather surprises in the future.

One of the things I couldn’t resist on a very chilly Sunday a couple of weeks ago was to walk down to the end of Marina One for a closer look at the dredge lodged at the end of the sand spit. On my way I saw how the January 9th storms had impacted the area inside the breakwater. Debris was still strewn about along the walkways of the docks but, even more interesting, was the brown oil-like patterns of sand and emulsified debris that surrounded the boats moored within breakwater’s protective arm. That must have been one stormy atmospheric river to grab the still waters within the confines of the harbor in its grasp.

A clear view of the massive dredge in all its mechanical glory was indeed awesome! The almost mile walk in the cold and wind was worth it just to appreciate the kind of human-constructed power is takes

to make a little dent in Mother Nature’s ongoing agenda. While awaiting her next whim the Santa Barbara harbor is nonetheless in the process of returning to full operating condition thanks to the hard work of the Waterfront Department with the help of so many others. So stay tuned to see what the next chapter will bring...

Bookworm Corner: Hidden Figures

INSPIRING YOUNG READERS TO TURN THEIR EYES AND DREAMS TO THE SKY, Hidden Figures: The True Story of Four Black Women and the Space Race highlights a chapter from our country’s history that is just now receiving the awareness it deserves. Written by Margot Lee Shetterly with Winifred Conkling, and illustrated by Laura Freeman, this picture book was published after the 2016 critically-acclaimed film Hidden Figures debuted, telling the story of three Black women who fought racism and misogyny to help NASA send the first man into space.

Written in a style straightforward enough for third grade readers and up, the Hidden Figures picture book ventures a step further than the film to emphasize how mathematicians Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson paved the way for future Black mathematicians. This legacy is outlined in the story of Christine Darden, who helped make the first moon landing possible.

Readers first meet Dorothy Vaughan, who initially helped improve American airplanes during World War II. When the Cold War begins, she is joined by Mary Jackson, who tirelessly works toward becoming the first Black female engineer to work at the Langley Research Center. The duo then meet Katherine Johnson, who was excluded from laboratory meetings due to her being a woman. However, Katherine continued to demand equal participation and treatment, ultimately becoming the first woman to sign her name to a group’s laboratory report.

Throughout these womens’ stories, the book does an excellent job of providing historical context to ensure young readers understand the full weight of their accomplishments. In exploring colorful

illustrated pages, students learn how the first computers were people, and that attempting to work as a computer as both a woman and a Black person was extraordinarily difficult in 1950’s society. Topics such as segregation and misogyny are outlined in direct language, providing young readers with a solid basis for future conversations.

The book also introduces much of America’s early space exploration history, including the creation of NASA and the missions to send astronaut John Glenn around the world and the landing of Apollo 11 on the moon. The constant presence of Dorothy, Mary, and Katherine, and later Christine Darden, emphasizes their determination, intelligence, and importance.

As Santa Barbara students continue to celebrate Black History Month, Hidden Figures: The True Story of Four Black Women and the Space Race offers a positive example of how Black women have and will continue to pave the future of STEM fields of study. As the book’s conclusion reminds us, “with hard work, perseverance, and a love of math, anything is possible.”

Broad Spectrum

OFFERING A SMORGASBORD OF FINE ART IN VARIOUS DIMENSIONS and themes, Broad Spectrum, the newest exhibition at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery, features an artist collective titled Western Edge, or WE.

The collective is composed of twelve women artists living in Southern California, whose work has been widely celebrated. Each visitor should find something tantalizing.

The exhibition is masterfully curated by Andi Campognone, director of the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, CA.

Although a few might resist acknowledging that this is a womenonly exhibition, it is symbolic and important to underline that women no longer are just muses for the canvas or clay. Women are the artists of creation. As such, they have banded together to promote their proximity to the environment on the edge of the Western Continent. Yet, the exhibition is much broader, and its themes universal. Their work could easily hold its own in any other geographic location.

The artists have loosely defined themselves in categories of: Storytellers, Messengers, Beyond Realism, and Abstractionists. Some showcase well in these slots, others slide in under the wire. Cynthia Martin’s colorful stripes and strips in Time Lapse, acrylic on nine panels, beckon us into the gallery like eye candy.

In terms of complex and audacious work, Dorothy Churchill-Johnson’s two massive paintings stand out. Angels and Demons, oil on canvas, 40×60 inches, is more than just a peek into a kaleidoscope of thoughts. If you stand too close you become part of it. She says that, “Through observation I hope to elevate the mundane to the extraordinary.” Last year one of her paintings went into the permanent collection at Butler Museum of American Art. Evidently, they agreed.

Joan Rosenberg-Dent’s porcelain abstraction titled, Haikui, on a wood panel speaks from the wall as a 3-D spatial construct, referencing the

rigid Japanese poem of three stanzas of 17 syllables. The exploration of the spoken word is not lost in this exhibition. Artist Nancy Gifford, notes that, “For me painting is the refuge of the failed poet.”

Her work Tar Sands, acrylic resin on laser cut birch on cradled birch, speaks truth of our environment.

RT Livingston, Cic #3, Sunrise, allows only a narrow band of pink to begin the break of day, which calls us to both the beauty and the darkness when the ocean meets the sky.

Susan Tibbles creates conversations about socio/political issues with undercurrents of satire, yet in complex illustrations and composites, like Balloon Boy collage.

Marlene Struss calls her abstractions

“biomorphic,” which they seem on an intricate level. What Happened Here?, acrylic on panel, is a prime example of wondering.

Artists Kerrie Smith and Cynthia James work with color and refined expression that captures both floral and plants, and an environment we wish would constantly be available to us. Smith’s work is bright, spot on, and engaging, as in Flora Ficciones Series: Gygantha Glorietta, acrylic on cradled wood panel; while James is luminescent and luscious, almost mythical in her use of color and seductive structure, as in Autumn Kiss, oil on canvas.

Everyone loves a good story. Ruth Ellen Hoag tells a lovely tale in Beach Day, acrylic. She says that “Music is inherent in my being,” so pianissimo is visible in her application of color at the beach. Pamela Hill Enticknap, captures the essence of a narrative in her delightful clay figurines. Baby Grand, polymer clay and acrylic, is very thought provoking. Veronica Walmsley’s Lucky Ducks, color pencil and watercolor is basically surrealism, executed precisely in tightly knit colors.

You can read about each artist and their work in a well documented manual at the gallery. The exhibition continues through March 25th at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery at 1331 State Street in Santa Barbara, near the historic Arlington Theater. A second reception with the artists will be held on Friday, February 10th, from 5 to 8pm.

The Climate Infowhelm

Heather Houser is the Mody C. Boatright Regents Professor in American and English Literature at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of Ecosickness in Contemporary U.S. Fiction: Environment and Affect (2014), Infowhelm: Environmental Art and Literature in an Age of Data (2020), as well as numerous academic and public articles.
