Artful Minds A Day of Art, Sunshine, & Self-Expression

EXPLORING THE WORLD AND THEMSELVES with passionate colors, eclectic shapes, and in some cases intricate beadwork, 60 local artists will share their creative visions with the Santa Barbara community when the 27th annual Artful Minds Arts Fair opens at the beachfront opposite Chase Palm Park from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, May 20th.

Hosted by the Mental Wellness Center, the day honors National Mental Health Awareness Month by highlighting artists living with mental illness in a fun, festive way — complete with a fleet of food trucks and sweet treats.

“Beyond just being an arts festival, this event offers a unique opportunity for individuals living with mental illness to exhibit their creative talents, enhance their self-esteem, and be perceived as worthy and valuable members of our community,” said Darcy Keep, longtime MWC Board Member and Administrative Director of Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, Cottage Health.

Artful Minds continues the MWC’s decades-long tradition of supporting individuals living with mental illness through art. Many of the artists participating in this year’s fair began their artistic practices through the center’s Fellowship Club. There, peer educators and an art specialist help individuals realize how they can better understand and express their emotions through art.

“Creative work benefits people,” explained Annmarie Cameron, MWC CEO. “Studies show that music, painting and other material art forms contribute to brain functioning, not just for children but also for adults. The physical act of craftmanship can be calming and help with anxiety and depression. Art helps form a road map or vision that can advance recovery from mental illness.”

One glance at Artful Minds’ array of styles and subjects reveals our artistic community’s creativity and diversity. Bold colors drive forward abstract shapes or patterns, while other canvases capture lovely

landscapes. Other pieces are overtly reflective, depicting distinctive self portraits and natural wonders, such as animals and flowers.

Jewelry and sculptures round out the festival, emphasizing the sheer number of ways these artists living with mental illness can and do express themselves through their craft.

“This is a poignant way to put a human face to mental illness,” said Darcy Keep, Chair of the Mental Health Arts Festival Committee and Administrative Director of Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine at Cottage Health.

Local elementary through high school students will also join in the fun by showcasing their original artworks. These young artists participate in the MWC’s Mental Health Matters program, which introduces Santa Barbara students to basic mental health knowledge, resources, and wellness activities they can easily practice. In the 2023-2024 academic year, the nonprofit is expecting to reach over 5,000 students across 100 classrooms.

“The underlying premise of MHM is that with understanding, youth will know to seek help should

City of SB Receives Microplastic Pollution Prevention Grant

Santa Barbara Airport Launches Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program

HELPING PEOPLE WITH A RANGE OF DISABILITIES, especially nonvisible disabilities, experience supportive and accessible travel, the Santa Barbara Airport has joined 200 airports worldwide participating in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower program. Travelers with a disability may wear a Sunflower lanyard or another Sunflower branded item to indicate they need extra time or assistance.

Airport staff are trained to recognize the Sunflower and provide extra assistance to travelers. Sunflower lanyards are available for free delivery or pickup via the SBA airport website.

“The Santa Barbara Airport staff work every day to ensure the safety and ease of travel for all passengers,” said Christopher Hastert, SBA Director. “It is our goal to be innovative and forward thinking in how we can better serve our passengers that may have diverse accessibility needs. By participating in the Sunflower program passengers that may need just a little extra help can travel more easily knowing our staff are trained and ready to support them.”

Alpha Resource Center is acting as an SBA community partner to help spread the word about the Sunflower program. Visit https://flysba.santabarbaraca.gov/terminal/accessibility/sunflower-program

GRANT FUNDING TOTALING $1.26 MILLION has been awarded to the City’s Sustainability & Resilience Department’s Creeks Division, in partnership with USC’s Sea Grant Program, for micro plastic pollution research. The project, “Clean Street, Clean Seas: Innovating Public Works to Intercept Microplastics in Urban Runoff,” will provide the first measured and reported results on the impacts of street sweeping and trash capture devices on microplastic marine debris in stormwater runoff. Project fieldwork will take place in Santa Barbara, the San Francisco Bay, and Los Angeles areas.

“We are incredibly excited to work with USC Sea Grant and our research partners, including Dr. Patricia Holden at UCSB,” said Jill Murray, Creeks Division Water Quality Research Analyst. “This project will determine how to remove microplastics from impervious urban surfaces to the greatest extent possible, as soon as possible, from as many acres as possible, in order to protect our streams, estuaries, and oceans from harmful pollution.” https://tinyurl.com/yrhcmbhz

Healing Space Partners with SB Unified School District

TO SUPPORT BLACK, INDIGENOUS, AND PEOPLE OF COLOR (BIPOC) STUDENTS, the Santa Barbara Unified School District is partnering with The Healing Space as part of its efforts to provide improved and informed psychological services. Along with individual or group counseling rooted in race-based stress or wellness, the Healing Space’s assistance includes support with individual education programs, counseling with students, and responding to referrals that involve racialized bullying.

“The type of support offered by The Healing Space is a much-needed service. It has become clear that we need to transform how we support students who have been historically marginalized. We are proud to partner with the UCSB Healing Space team, and we look forward to working with them,” said Dr. Hilda Maldonado, Superintendent.

The Healing Space is a therapy training clinic under the UCSB Counseling, Clinical & School Psychology Department supporting community-led efforts that center wellness for the Black Community.

Housing Authority Hosts Family Digital Literacy Day


ACQUIRE THE DIGITAL RESOURCES THEY NEED, the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara (HACSB) hosted its inaugural Family Digital Literacy Day on May 3rd. Hosted in collaboration with Partners in Education, the event provided Housing Authority families and youth with free computers, assistance in accessing low-cost internet services, technical support, and online safety instruction.

“Digital technology can help enhance education and promote socioeconomic development, but for families to benefit from these opportunities they must have access to technology and affordable connectivity,” said Alice Villarreal Redit, HACSB Resident Programs Supervisor. “And while the internet is a powerful tool with many advantages, it is also important to teach youth how to safely navigate online spaces.”

A community member receives a free, refurbished computer

Both English and Spanish workshops were provided, with the first 50 families who signed up receiving a refurbished computer or tablet. HACSB was recently awarded a $75,000 grant from the Federal Communications Commission as part of its Affordable Connectivity Outreach Grant Program. www.hacsb.org

350 Merino Sheep Graze Elings Park for Wildfire Prevention

THEY’RE BAAAACK! A flock of Merino sheep can now be spotted at Elings Park’s scenic South Bluffs, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. By devouring invasive, non-native plants, the sheep also reduce the amount of wildfire fodder, serve as an alternative to pesticides, break up hard soil to allow native plants to spread, and provide “natural” fertilizer. The public is welcome to hike onto the south bluffs to view the flock during daylight hours through June 1st. The trailhead is off Jerry Harwin Parkway, behind the Administration Building’s parking lot.

Chumash Elder Named Old Spanish Days Grand Marshal

HONORING SANTA BARBARA’S FIRST RESIDENTS’ CONTINUING LEGACY AND SIGNIFICANCE, Old Spanish Days has named Ernestine Ygnacio-De Soto the 2023 Old Spanish Days Grand Marshal.

A Barbareño Chumash tribal elder, Ygnacio-De Soto’s family historically resided in Syuxtun, the dominant Chumash village between Carpinteria and Gaviota. Her great, great grandmother, Maria Ygnacia, was the last survivor of community members who had been born at Syuxtun before the Spanish relocated the entire band of Chumash individuals to Old Mission Santa Barbara.

“Being asked to be the Fiesta Parade Grand Marshall is for me a wonderful opportunity to show our Santa Barbara community that we Chumash are still here and that we have left our mark on this place,” said Ernestine Ygnacio-De Soto. “Our presence was the first and our town of Syuxtun, located at the harbor front, was the first village here.

October 1st Rooted in Beauty

First Church of Christ, Scientist

When held back by fear...

LISA TROSETH, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present her talk, Moving past fear - to healing, on Saturday, May 20th, at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, located at 120 East Valerio Street in Santa Barbara.

The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Bible, especially in Jesus’ life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science.

The talk is free, open to the community, and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Santa Barbara.

“Fear can be overcome and even healed in our lives by discovering the strong connection and relationship we have to something bigger than ourselves—God,” shared Troseth. “By learning to lean and rely on this greater, higher good, we can feel moved to love beyond ourselves—and this frees us from fear and so much more.”

Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Troseth will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Troseth will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, who came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing.

Lisa Troseth has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. She travels from her home base in Rogers, Arkansas, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

It will also be livestreamed at https://christiansciencesb.org

Why Mental Health Awareness Matters

ANNOUNCED “THE DEFINING PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS OF OUR TIME” by U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, mental health remains one of the most serious issues facing our community — especially for local youth. According to the Cottage Center for Population Health, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people ages ten to 24 in Santa Barbara County.

Ninety percent of teenagers included among this devastating statistic are found to have an underlying, untreated mental illness. In the first semester of the Santa Barbara Unified School District’s 2022 academic year, there were 56 suicide incidences reported. On a national scale, one in six youth have shared they have made a suicide plan in the past year.

they or someone they know experience symptoms of a possible mental health disorder, knowing that early treatment tends to lead to better outcomes,” shared Cameron.

By inviting art lovers of all ages to connect with local artists living with mental illness, MWC aims to inspire acceptance, understanding, and awareness.

“All too often, people living with mental illness are marginalized and not seen; while others may focus on their differences or limitations, MWC chooses to see their attributes, their strengths and their resilience despite the often enormous odds against them,” shared Keep.

By promoting Mental Health Awareness month, and supporting mental health and wellbeing programs year-round, the Mental Wellness Center is working to educate and empower Santa Barbara community members to learn how to take care of themselves and others struggling with mental health.

“With a commitment to diverse programming through re-envisioned, bilingual programs and services at our state-of-the-art, downtown location, we have launched full force into shaping an imminent future where all community members can easily seek out and participate in the mental health support they need,” related Annmarie Cameron, MWC CEO.

MWC services include its Mental Health Matters youth education program and residential services for individuals struggling with mental health in need of a home. The nonprofit also hosts a series of support groups, social connection programs, and other wellbeing resources addressing a range of mental health needs.

Off the Wall Reimagined

LEAVING WITH NEW ARTISTIC TREASURES IN HAND, local art enthusiasts, collectors, and creatives turned out in full force for the long-anticipated return of Off the Wall Reimagined on Friday, April 28th.

An elegant soirée hosted by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Women’s Board, the fundraiser featured 73 local artists who donated pieces across styles to benefit museum education and exhibition programming.

“This couldn’t happen without your generosity,” said Larry J. Feinberg,

SBMA Robert and Mercedes Eichholz

Director & CEO, to the evening’s artists before thanking the Women’s Board for another “tremendous job.”

“It’s one of our most fun events,” he added. “I’m sure everybody will walk home with a very nice work of art!

Guests basked in the golden hour light, strolling the Santa Barbara Woman’s Club grounds while enjoying the jazzy vocals of Téka, sipping cocktails, and savoring scrumptious hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Catering Connection.

Inside the clubhouse, guests had the opportunity to peruse the dozens of paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, assemblages, and more up for auction. Grouped into five sections — digital media/ photography, abstract, landscapes, realism, and mixed media — the displayed works spoke to Santa Barbara’s varied artistic community.

Boasting the theme “Art Educators in the Santa Barbara Community,” the 2023 Off the Wall Reimagined featured many local individuals who have inspired future generations of artists.

“This event is held by the Women’s Board, which serves a wonderful purpose for the community, for the museum, and to be able to represent this as an artist is such an honor,” said artist, SB County Arts Commissioner, and former art educator Mariko Tabar. “The museum plays a huge role culturally and visually, and it’s a destination that is always bringing stimulating access to art to the community.”

A touching moment emerged as Milton Hess, husband of longtime Women’s Board member and Off the Wall founder Cecia Hess, addressed the crowd. As Cecia passed away during the pandemic, the evening carried a bittersweet note for many.

“This evening, the Women’s Board is bringing back an event that gave happiness to a lot of people and Cecia would be delighted,” said Hess, sharing that much of the art in his home are pieces he and Cecia picked up at Off the Wall events.

A buzz of anticipation swept the clubhouse as guests settled for the main event. Local artist Ralph Waterhouse acted as auctioneer, expertly leading a lively bidding war among attendees as they bid for the chance to handpick the night’s first three acquisitions. An abstract work by Michael Irwin emerged as the front runner, selling for $2,600.

After this exciting kick-off, Women’s Board member Linda Wortham took the stage, pulling names from a bucket to give each attendee the opportunity to voice which work they wanted to take home with them. Cheers and groans were heard throughout the crowd, as guests celebrated personal victories or quickly pivoted when the work they originally wanted was snatched up.

With such a marvelous selection of art, however, camaraderie prevailed, and all departed with smiles on their faces and works that carry the memories of another successful Off the Wall.

SB Unified Teachers Rally for Greater Pay at School Board Meeting


and Flowers for Derby Day at SB Polo & Racquet Club

SATURDAY, MAY 6TH: The Kentucky Derby watch party and hat contest was a colorful gathering (and prediction event) at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Thank you to Ricky Oshay, Teresa Kuskey Nowak, Lisa and Michael Amador, Joseph Souza and all involved.

The hat winner was Barbara Logan, who is also known for her costumes in the annual Solstice Parade. The hat had many Barbie dolls on it presented in a colorful way. Rocking music was played by BFD (Bobby, Fin and Dave).

Parma Park Adds 2.7 Miles of New Trails

WEDNESDAY, MAY 3RD: New trails are going in to the western end of Parma Park in Santa Barbara. They are about three feet wide. Some are graded gently to be accessible to those with mobility aids.

“You can see so much of what Santa Barbara has to offer just in this one park,” said Monique O’Conner, the City of Santa Barbara’s Open Space Planner. “You get views of the ocean you see many of our

native vegetation communities and you get some nice exercise in as well. It’s pretty unique in that we have a lot of different vegetation types out here we have oak woodland, we have riparian corridors, we have grasslands and we have chaparral. “

The trails will open later this month, and add 2.7 miles of new trail to the park’s existing 4.1 miles. Native plants will be going in the ground near the trail this summer.

Cinco de Mayo in Santa Barbara!

FRIDAY, MAY 5TH: Holidays often bring a big business boost throughout the year. During Cinco de Mayo, many Mexican restaurants saw an increase in customers and hope they return often.

After a slower winter, this is an important time to jump start the rest of the year. I visited two in Santa Barbara for a close up look at their menus, kitchens and to talk to owners and customers. Thank you to Los Arroyos and Maiz Picante.

“La familia Arroyo. That is how we feel,” said Los Arroyos Manager Lesli Borrayo. “La familia Arroyo... Like family to me, this is like to me our second home and customers are familia.”

Miniatures Big on Message!

SUNDAY’S SUNNY WEATHER was the perfect time to take a walk and to enjoy the fresh air, the sparkling blue ocean, and the Channel Islands, all seemingly within arms length. The sight of an occasional sailboat suggested a stroll along the breakwater, but the crowds along Cabrillo Boulevard’s Arts and Crafts Show on my way were an instant distraction. It looked to me like those folks were also enjoying this beautiful day but with the added advantage of discovering Santa Barbara’s local artists – kinda like the whipped cream atop a fudge sundae!

With the previous plan scrapped, I joined the crowds wandering past the booths displaying arts and crafts of all kinds, jewelry, leather goods, photographs, and paintings. Not looking for anything in particular, just enjoying this outdoor jaunt, I passed a display that instantly caught my attention: Standing in sharp contrast to the larger paintings and photographs, this unusual presentation of framed miniatures, no larger than a greeting card, was truly an attention getter! The whimsical delicacy of the tiny imaginative creatures painted within a small space actually seemed much larger. And upon closer examination each of the characters touched me in some strange, mysterious way.

The artist, Chris Hamilton, depicted as The Scary Fairy Factory on her card, was in conversation with visitors to her booth. From my vantage point she appeared animated and curious, interested in an exchange of ideas outside of her work. Inquiring if some of her conversations might serve as inspiration she responded, “I’m reminded of Goethe, the German poet, philosopher, who said that we are all ‘geniuses together.’ Meaning that art - and most else - begins in community with others…that is also my philosophy and my inspiration.”

The whimsical characters depicted in her work, the human and animal images and creatures from her imagination – fairies, monsters, and all revisioned caricatures – are projected through this artists’s lens as portraits of thoughts and feelings common to us all.

“Regardless from where people come, or what their backgrounds or beliefs are,” Hamilton observed, “they seem to respond to these fanciful creatures in an organic way. This tells me they ‘get it,’ they understand, which for me as an artist is confirming.”

The artist’s comments certainly applied to me that day. Whether depicted as a human, animal, or a being from a world of fantasy, regardless of form, color, or shape these tiny creatures seem to have spoken to me in a split second without firing a neuron of thought!

“That’s also how I create my creatures,” shared Hamilton. “They arrive when it’s time, in a split second or a moment that’s right, which is why I believe that the viewer feels that way too. And that’s a moment shared, as we share ourselves in the manner Goethe described.”

Through Hamilton’s use of space and place, these card size watercolors appear intensely large. As an example, the painted caricature of a minuscule black robed Ruth Bader Ginsberg seated in the oversized hot seat of legal responsibility goes beyond the image’s emotional impact. In a split second, who RBG was, her challenges, and what she’d accomplished became instantly clear.

Now how’s that for an arrow that meets its mark? Thank you, Chris Hamilton for your wonderful work. Do visit Sunday’s Arts and Crafts Show to treat yourself to some of the creativity in our Santa Barbara community!

Aging the Bottle to Perfection

TALKING TO BENJAMIN SILVER is like talking to a living wine encyclopedia. And when it comes to making wines, his are some of the best. Living and breathing the Central Coast wine business, just talking to Benjamin can be intoxicating. He knows far more than just the basics... he knows the local fields, individual blocks in many of the fields, even which winemaker had the block planted in its current configuration. He can quote seasonal weather patterns and their effect on the fruit. And, of course, he knows the local winemakers and their wines.

Silver grew up the son of an Amherst University organic chemistry professor. As a child, he would hang out in the labs. He loved to conduct experiments and seemed to have a knack for the science itself. In his late high school years, he took summer jobs at the University, doing gardening work and earning the charmingly affectionate title of Junior Bushman. Working with the plants began a lifelong love of horticulture, and a deep understanding of the hand of nature. Moving on to UMASS to get degrees in pre-veterinary science and Italian, he spent time abroad in Sienna, Italy, and in Salamanca, Spain. There, he learned an appreciation for the wines of Europe that informs his winemaking style to this day.

Graduating in 1993, Silver went off to Martha’s Vineyard for the summer to consider what to do next. Neither going to veterinary school nor becoming a professor of Italian seemed as interesting as they had as an undergraduate. Instead, he took a job at Chicama Vineyards in Martha’s Vineyard, initially

the result of dialing the wrong telephone number, but mostly because it sounded interesting. He did all sorts of work there… and got the fever.

In 1994 he sent out resumes to Italy and around America to see if he could get a job working the harvest. He received a letter from the now legendary local winemaker, Dan Gehrs, who was in his acclaimed years at Zaca Mesa Vineyard. Benjamin didn’t know much about Dan. He didn’t know much about Santa Barbara, either. He knew it was by the sea, and that there was a good aikido dojo there. But, that was enough to tempt him out to California.

Arriving in Santa Barbara, he found himself studying at Zaca Mesa, which some call the Great University of Wine. There, Dan Gehrs was schooling a dazzling list of future superstars in the fine art of winemaking. Silver also took seminars up at UC Davis’ School of Viticulture and Enology. But the most important part of that winemaking education came from being around Dan Gehrs. Though it is helpful to look at the chemistry and the numbers of winemaking, Dan taught Benjamin to make wine by the palate. He worked four harvests with Dan, as laboratory technician and as an assistant winemaker. Then, when Dan left in 1997, Benjamin became Zaca Mesa’s chief winemaker. Benjamin stayed there until 2000.

In 2000, Silver Wines did its first vintage, crushing 22 tons of Cabernet and Pinot Noir. Though it is fairly easy these days to source fruit from independent growers around California,

it was difficult in 2000. Back then, it was done by grabbing a few tons here, and a few tons there, from somebody else’s estate wine vineyard. Coming up with a quality wine was quite a trick, but Benjamin pulled it off. Decades later, he is still focused on making top quality wines.

One of the best things about Silver’s operation is his wine club. “I wanted a wine club that allows you to choose your own bottles.” There is a phrase you seldom hear. And what is there to choose? The lineup at Silver Wines is heavy on 100 percent Sangiovese (the grape of Tuscan Chianti,) Nebbiolo (the grape of Barolo and Barbaresco,) Cabernet Franc, and Chenin Blanc. And then there are his wonderful blends, of which there are many. All of these are loaded with marvelous minerality, carefully nuanced flavors, and a clear vision of what the wine should be. There is nothing murky or flabby about any of his wines, and we really appreciate that!

The other nice thing about Silver’s wines is that he believes in storing them until they are fully ready for release. Hence, you will find newly released wines there that are much older than you would find almost anywhere else in a Central Coast tasting room. The quality of the wines is what makes the Silver label one that stands out in the constellation of the Central Coast winemakers. So when you drop by, take time to find the new wine tasting room, as it can be tricky to discover. Then, cross your fingers and hope that he is in the tasting room. Then just sit back and listen to him go.

U.S. Still Fully Employed!

SURPRISE, SURPRISE. Americans remain fully employed, in spite of the Fed’s efforts to slow economic growth. The ‘official’ unemployment rate dropped to 3.4 percent in April. The last time it was this low was in 1968.

“Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 253,000 in April, and the unemployment rate changed little at 3.4 percent,” the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported recently. “Employment continued to trend up in professional and business services, health care, leisure and hospitality, and social assistance.”

What is going on? It peaked at 14.7 percent in April 2020 then plunged incredibly quickly after what was just a two month recession. This had never happened since World War II.

Twenties kicked in that was the greatest economic expansion in history at the time.

And then came the Great Depression and a New Deal when Roosevelt’s government became the solution rather than the problem.

The same is happening today. Both Democrats and Republicans raised $trillions to pay for the COVID-19 recovery, putting actual checks in consumers’ pockets so that they still have some $1 trillion in savings, which has kept them spending, and employers hiring ever more employees.

Everyone seems to be working that wants to work.

Economic VOICE

Could it be the COVID-19 pandemic, the first worldwide pandemic in 100 years that has killed more then seven million citizens of the world?

Of course it was the pandemic, which has upset everyone’s prognostications, especially the Fed’s economists, because so much has changed in 100 years. But there are some similarities. The Spanish flu lasted from 1920-22, and then the Roaring

The BLS said among major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.3 percent), adult women (3.1 percent), teenagers (9.2 percent), Whites (3.1 percent), Blacks (4.7 percent),

Asians (2.8 percent), and Hispanics (4.4 percent) were at record lows.

Education and Health added 77,000 jobs, followed by Professional/Business and Leisure and Hospitality: all in the service sector. Governments added 23,000 jobs, which highlighted just how government spending has boosted growth.

The one factor that worries Fed governors most is that average hourly wages rose slightly to 4.4 percent, though it has fallen sharply from its high last year.

Stocks are rallying because it has reduced fears of an imminent recession. In fact, how could that be possible now?

Consumer spending is the main engine of U.S. growth and grew 3.7 percent last month, I wrote last week. It was the biggest increase in almost two years. Businesses are now aggravating the inflation problem by not meeting consumers’ needs, reducing

investments and production at a time when consumers are still consuming, thus keeping prices from declining more quickly.

What is the Fed to do that just raised their rate another 0.25 percent? Former Fed Chair Greenspan made the mistake of contining to raise the Fed Funds rate 16 consecutive times over two years, this causing the housing bubble to bust and the Great Recession in 2008-09.

How can Chairman Powell avoid making the same mistake?

Teens Rock SBCEO’s 2023 Poetry Slam

SPEAKING WITH POISE, ELOQUENCE, AND ORIGINALITY, three high school students were selected as the winners of the Santa Barbara County Education Office Poetry Slam on May 4th. The first place winner was Samantha McDonald, a 10th grade student at Ernest Righetti High School, with second place being a tie between Litzy Matematico and Natalie Lancor, who are in the 10th and 11th grades at Ernest Righetti High School, respectively.

“Spoken word poetry provides students a stage to be unapologetic truth-tellers and to use the power of language and authentic performance to transcend human struggle and create beauty. It is art for collective healing,” said Ellen Barger, Associate Superintendent of SBCEO Curriculum & Instruction.

The SBCEO Poetry Slam combines performance, writing, competition, and audience participation. Judges scored contestants on the basis of performance elements such as enthusiasm, delivery, and facial expressions. Ahead of the slam, SBCEO partnered with Los Angeles-based nonprofit Get Lit - Words Ignite to support teachers and students as they learned about and created their own spoken word poetry.

“The students transformed written poems to a new level of brave artistry and creative expression,” said County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido. “Congratulations and thank you to all the participants for sharing your poetry with our community.” www.sbceo.org

Carpinteria & Summerland Artists Studio Tour

Stepping into Art’s Home

REVERBERATING WITH LIFE, YET A PRIVATE SPACE where creativity is safe to flourish, an artist’s studio is often off limits to visitors. This weekend, though, locals and visitors can venture a peek into these creative worlds when 23 artists open their doors for the Carpinteria & Summerland Artists Studio Tour over Mother’s Day Weekend.

Back in-person for the first time since 2019, the free tour is a rare chance to explore where and how artists put brush to canvas, finger to clay, and everything in between. Between 10am and 5pm Saturday and Sunday, May 13th and 14th, the public is welcome to visit and discover how the magic happens.

“This is much more personable than just coming across artwork online or going into a gallery, because in this case, you get to visit the artists,” shared photographer Ted Rhodes, this year’s organizer of the Tour. “In the studios, you get to find out more about the artists and learn about what they are really passionate about.”

Studio Tour is a delightful weekend for the artists themselves as they meet and get to know their audiences.

“I always get new people coming, but I also get people coming back because they liked the work,” said Rhodes.

“Sometimes they have to see it three or four times before they decide, ‘I really want that piece.’ If [artists are] exposing their artwork to new people, down the road, it’s going to lead to greater visibility.”

Creating art can be a solitary occupation, requiring hours tucked away in the studio, but the Studio Tour offers artists the chance to shine and connect with community members.

“Working in a vacuum as an artist doesn’t work very well,” chuckled artist Gary Campopiano. “If people respond to your work, it’s much more encouraging to do more.”

The Carpinteria & Summerland Artists Studio Tour is presented by The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a vibrant community through the arts. For folks interested in attending, the Studio Tour Art Show is open at The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center (located on 865 Linden Ave.) through Thursday, May 18th. Community members are welcome to stop by the gallery and decide which studios they would like to tour.

Now in its 16th year, the Carpinteria & Summerland Artists Studio Tour has helped establish the central coast as an arts haven and a destination for those touched by imagination. When exploring the artists’ physical spaces, visitors have the opportunity to see art in a new light.

“Most communities have some sort of tour like this, and a lot of them charge to go on the tour,” said Rhodes. “Carpinteria being a small town, we’ve always thought that’s not the Carpinteria way–we should offer this for free. So that’s what we do.”

Participating artists: Susie Anderson, Benjamin Anderson, James Paul Brown, Jayne Burton, Gary Campopiano, Carpinteria Community Church Crafty Ladies, Patricia Clarke, Birgitte Ibsen, Deb Jorgenson, Brecia Kralovic-Logan, Jenny L. Michael, Baba Masino, Matt Moore, John Randall Nelson, Hal Price, Ted Rhodes, Joseph Sacks, Kim Snyder, Leigh Sparks, Arturo Tello, Tamara

Summer Solstice Workshop


AHUB OF CREATIVITY AND COLOR, the Solstice Workshop will throw open its gates for an open house to kick off the workshop season! Located at 631 Garden Street at the corner of Ortega (enter on Ortega), the open house takes place on Saturday, May 13th, from 3 to 5 pm, when the public can meet the artists and see what they are designing for this year’s parade. The artists will have drawings and models of their ideas for this year’s parade - all revolving around the theme, “ROOTS.”

The heart of the Solstice celebration begins in the community Workshop where most of the floats, costumes, and masks in the parade are made. All parade participants must register to walk in the parade, but, for a small additional fee, people can visit the workshop and participate in the creation of the ensembles and floats. The Workshop’s staff of professional artists-in-residence teach, mentor, and assist participants to transform ordinary lumber, paper, fabric, and paint into animated works of art.

In its 49th year, the Solstice Celebration offers many ways to get involved in this amazing people-powered parade. The Junior Artist Program headed by former Executive Director Claudia Bratton offers teens the opportunity to work with artists in residence. Youth can get community service hours. This hands-on program takes place for two months, at the Community Arts Workshop, beginning in May and ending in June after the Parade. Applicants must be 13 to 20 years old. Students must email a letter about themselves and why they wish to participate in the program to juniorartists@solsticeparade.com

Solstice artists help the public implement and build the floats, design the ensembles, costumes, masks. “It’s an amazing outpouring of creativity, connection, and collaboration. There are not many places in the world where celebration arts are taught the way we do here in Santa Barbara. Come create with us!” shared Executive Director Penny Little. For more information on how to get involved, go to the website: solsticeparade.com

Call for New Artist Members

The Abstract Art Collective, AAC, will hold its Spring New Membership Jury Day on Saturday, May 20th.

Nothing More than Freedom: The Failure of Abolition in American Law (Cambridge University Press, 2023)


Nothing More than Freedom: The Failure of Abolition in American Law (Cambridge University Press, 2023)

Nothing More than Freedom explores the long and complex legal history of Black freedom in the United States. From the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865 until the end of Reconstruction in 1877, supreme courts in former slave states decided approximately 700 lawsuits associated with the struggle for Black freedom and equal citizenship. This litigation – the majority through private law – triggered questions about American liberty and reassessed the nation’s legal and political order following the Civil War. Judicial decisions set the terms of debates about racial identity, civil rights, and national belonging, and established that slavery, as a legal institution and social practice, remained actionable in American law well after its ostensible demise. The verdicts determined how unresolved facets of slavery would undercut ongoing efforts for abolition and the realization of equality. Insightful and compelling, this work makes an important intervention in the history of post-Civil War law.
