After the video, season brochures, with a cover image of the all-new Swan Lake by Ballet Preljocaj were passed out by staff. With it in hand, it was impossible to not start exploring and dreaming.

Perspectives on Juneteenth


Scholars discuss what the holiday symbolizes, how it can be observed — and why there is much more work to be done. By Shelly Leachman / The UC Santa Barbara Current

T WAS THE DAY that U.S. Army General Gordon Granger announced the end of slavery in Texas. Word of the Emancipation Proclamation had already gotten around since its signing more than two years earlier, but this news made it official in Texas and, ostensibly, meant it was going to be enforced. Celebration ensued. One year later, on June 19, 1866, Texas marked its first “Jubilee Day” and Juneteenth has been commemorated there ever since, eventually spreading across the nation and made a holiday in several states. In 2021, Juneteenth National Independence Day was at last established as a federal holiday. In advance and in honor of Juneteenth this year, The Current asked a diversity of scholars for their perspectives on its significance, and on some meaningful ways it can be commemorated. Here are the responses that were received:

Stephanie L. Batiste, associate professor of English; associate director, Center for Black Studies Research Neither the United States nor the world has ever taken full accountability for the totalizing impact of 400-plus years of race-based slavery and global colonialism that forged the modern era — in fact forged everything that happened during and has come after it. Slavery governed human, identity, sexual, economic, legal, trade, labor, political, regional, national, and international features of structural and everyday life in an epic and intergenerational fashion. Slavery as a structure of knowledge vibrates deeply in the sinews of assumption and practice of our national identities to the extent that destructive racist sensibilities and practices still traverse quotidian interactions as natural and innocent. This holiday acknowledging that it took years after the legal emancipation for slaveholders to release their ownership, subjugation, labor, and resource extraction of human beings with “inalienable rights” to freedom is a tiny step in recognizing the errors of a normalized violent history. Science fiction understands slavery better than everyday people and certainly our political entities. Addressing history can reveal the deviously tangled, again thickly totalizing structures of racism in a nation purportedly committed to democracy and freedom. Black Americans as a people have been committed to that dream, and to broader freedom dreams, even as we have not been able to benefit from national promises or the entitlements of citizenship. This holiday may be a celebration, but it is also a very late federal step, particularly for contemporary citizens, in recognizing that slavery was a significant happening in the U.S. with thundering consequences that resonate to this moment, to each moment. Community celebrations toward healing and mutual recognition of survival, resilience, creativity, and genius among Black people will be wonderful. But a public reckoning with the many outstanding histories my colleagues and forebears have written about the broad processes and intimate details of colonialism, slavery, and abolition is essential. Slavery and its deep-seated global legacies of anti-Black racism have impacted every institution in this and every other country. An intentional dismantling of racist structures that universally impact the poor, the young, the sick, the practice of law, the incarcerated, the structurally hopeless, entire industries of workers, et cetera must occur if this recognition on the part of our government is to have any feet.

Ninotchka Bennahum, professor of theater and dance Juneteenth is significant because it symbolizes the re-founding of a nation, not on the backs of a free labor source brutalized and enslaved but rather with the written and holistic notion of a place where everybody is born equal, with an inalienable right to happiness, to freedom, to life. Juneteenth is a reimagining of a nation that was founded far away from the principles of an egalitarian nation. It is a reenactment of an ideal: a united nation where all are free to live in freedom and prosperity. It is important to remember that 1866 [the first year Juneteenth was officially celebrated in Texas] also witnessed another tragedy: the genocidal tactics of the U.S. government against First Peoples, Native Americans, in order to seize their land and to control their ancient secular and religious traditions. To commemorate Juneteenth we can dance, a kinesthetic act of remembrance. We can dance in public spaces, civic spaces. Dance becomes an act, however small, of resistance, a mnemonic — an embodied liberty that recognizes the tremendous cultural contribution of African Americans to our history.

Richard Durán, professor of education, associate dean for faculty equity, The Gevirtz School The proclamation of Juneteenth as a federal holiday marks our country’s moral commitment

to keep its promises to ensure the freedom and liberty of Black Americans backed by whatever actions are necessary. It is a day of national recognition of the racist harms that Black Americans suffered historically stemming from slavery and that they continue to encounter to this day. It also marks our celebration that, as Americans, we can right wrongs when we understand each other’s common good and human rights, and that, when put to the test, we can take actions righting wrongs — whether this be by civil policies or healing enforcement of laws tied to education and human rights. Importantly, the Juneteenth holiday is about the energy of hope and belief in each other, when we look ahead to building our futures as Americans in concert with our many global partners and heritage communities. We all can join in honoring and celebrating this joyful holiday. I suggest visiting the 2022 Juneteenth “Caring for the People” Block Party (https://tinyurl.com/54y9cu5f). This site and the local in-person activities set for June 19th described therein is a collaboration of many Santa Barbara community groups led by Juneteenth SB and Healing Justice Santa Barbara. Beyond offering details on the planned wonderful block party event open to all, this site includes information on the history of the Juneteenth movement locally as well as nationally. While Juneteenth is commemorated as a distinct holiday, it also needs to be commemorated in our everyday reflections on the importance of our support for our Black community members, and their well-being must be backed up by our actions and advocacy in daily life.

Giuliana Perrone, associate professor of history; affiliated faculty, Center for Black Studies Research Often, we’re told that Juneteenth was the moment enslaved Texans learned they were free. Not quite. Plenty knew what was going on and were actively working to subvert the power of enslavers. Rather, General Order No. 3 told white enslavers that the U.S. Army would enforce emancipation in Texas and prevent them from holding human property from that point forward. Current rhetoric also runs the risk of overstating what Granger’s order did; it prevented ongoing enslavement but did NOT deliver lasting equality or citizenship. The job of securing liberation, that is, isn’t over. The holiday honors not only emancipation but also the historical Black celebrations of it. Making the holiday federal signals to all Americans that those celebrations are not just for Black people but should be shared by all Americans — that Black history is American history, and vice versa. It’s also a reminder that the nation has a slave past and that it must continue to move beyond the legacies of slavery. It is, in that way, a call to action; it reminds people that celebrating freedom from bondage is just one step in a much longer liberation struggle. We can celebrate successes in that struggle (emancipation) while we continue to fight for the promises made during Reconstruction (civil rights acts and new amendments especially). It’s also a way to honor the fact that Black Americans — often enslaved Black Americans — made the Civil War about their own freedom. So celebrating Juneteenth is a celebration of the thousands of Black people who fled plantations, worked in union encampments, and served as soldiers whose names may not be known but whose collective deeds fundamentally changed the course of American history. To me, commemorations of Juneteenth should include joyful celebration of an important moment in the Black freedom struggle AND a recommitment to continue fighting for the abolition of structural and other forms of racism that have lingered well after the end of enslavement. (The distinction between emancipation and abolition is really important in my work; emancipation notes the moment that enslavement ended, but abolition requires something much more substantial — the removal of slavery’s lasting legacies and the construction of equal and equitable citizenship.) There’s a reason that efforts to make Juneteenth a federal holiday finally

Jodi House’s 8th Annual Run, Walk & Roll Event a Success

succeeded with the momentum of the George Floyd uprising behind it. It was a moment in which Americans mobilized for change and renewed calls to end all manifestations of racism. So when we celebrate Juneteenth, we must each honor that by asking ourselves, “What am I going to do to advance the cause of social justice for all?”

Paul Spickard, distinguished professor of history; affiliate professor of Black studies We celebrate freedom in many ways in our country, but freedom has not been equally available to all Americans throughout our history. July 4 celebrates our national independence from Britain, but only a small minority — adult, propertied, White males — possessed full citizenship rights in the first several generations. Wives were legally considered the property of their husbands, as were children of their parents. Most egregiously, one out of every six Americans was enslaved: abused, working for no wages, subject to being separated from family members, bought and sold, having no rights. Enslaved African Americans did not suddenly become free and acquire full citizenship rights on June 19, 1865, when word went out across Texas of the Emancipation Proclamation two years earlier. Gradually then, formerly enslaved people worked to achieve something like full citizenship. That has taken more than 125 years and we are far from equality. But since the Galveston Black community first celebrated their limited freedom on Juneteenth in 1866, African Americans have consistently pushed against White supremacy. We have made some progress since then, but it has not been steady, and we currently are in a period when White supremacy is on the rise again. Juneteenth reminds all Americans that the Bill of Rights is supposed to be for everybody. It holds out our better ideals before us, even as we still fail to achieve them. I’m sure there will be a parade somewhere, and picnics and barbecues. Those are good things to do. But I’m going to suggest another.

Jodi House members at the Run, Walk, & Roll event


NVITING COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO RUN, WALK, OR ROLL FOR A GOOD CAUSE, about 50 brain injury survivors, their friends and family, and other supportive locals participated in Jodi House’s 8th annual athletic event on May 19th. Hosted at Chase Palm Park, this marked the first in person Run, Walk, & Roll event in three years due to the pandemic. Participants either completed a 5K or a one-mile course in the manner of their choosing, either in person or remotely at a location of their choosing. All registration fees went toward supporting Santa Barbara nonprofit Jodi House, which is dedicated to supporting brain injury survivors. The organizaiton consistently offers daytime programming, case management, caregiver resources, and more.

I’m in Hungary at the moment on sabbatical. Here this year I have watched democracy be systematically disassembled by a corrupt dictatorship. All the things that have been done in Hungary to destroy democracy and social equality, and to subvert the will of the people, are currently being tried by political actors in the United States. Now is a time to get to work to stop them. Find a political cause or campaign that favors social justice and get involved. That’s a good way to celebrate Juneteenth.

Sharon Tettegah, associate vice chancellor for diversity, equity and inclusion; director, Center for Black Studies Research; professor of Black studies Juneteenth is an important date that commemorates emancipation of slaves of African descent in the U.S. No human

being should be enslaved to the extent that African Americans were enslaved. It’s a prime example of how the history of African American peoples was erased and Juneteenth is a recognition of how we have not been recognized up until today as human beings. We can systematize and create a safe space for African Americans on the UCSB campus. We need more anti-racism training for nonBlack faculty, staff and students — particularly for those who do not understand African American/Black individuals and communities. This campus should demonstrate support for African Americans knowing that historical, institutional and structural racism still exists and the struggle continues. Governor Gavin Newsom signed measure AB3121 and developed a task force to study and develop reparations. At the very least, the university and its system should understand the part it plays in maintaining over 400 years of institutional racism and anti-Blackness. African Americans are still trying to fight for justice against verbal, physical, and emotional accusations and abuse, as in the cases of Emmett Till, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others whose accusers and killers never faced any legal consequences. The Black individual in U.S. society does not have any power in a system based on the tenets of antiBlackness, regardless of their position. A 2016 meta-analytical integration of over 40 years of research on diversity training evaluation found that DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) training and dialogue are insufficient to address anti-Blackness. We need actions that address anti-Blackness and an understanding of the history of slavery and its impact.

Isaiah Jay Jones, doctoral student, counseling, clinical and school psychology; clinician, The Healing Space The injustice of the continued enslavement of peoples in Galveston, Texas, for an additional two years was able to continue because of enforced isolation and ignorance. Through community, allyship, learning and sharing, we celebrate, support, and uplift Black life. While there is more work to be done, we must all also take time for radical joy, hope and healing, and especially so in times of hardship. As Juneteenth is the commemoration of Black/African American freedom, celebration, and community, the best ways to honor that are by participating with the community! In Santa Barbara, that could mean attending the Juneteenth “Caring for the People” Block Party, supporting local Black businesses, spending time with each other, or simply continuing to be an ally and friend. As individuals, we can also prioritize opening ourselves to discussions or reflections on injustice in the U.S., both historic and ongoing.

Anticipating the Season


Ballet Preljocaj will perform Swan Lake at The Granada Theatre on Saturday and Sunday, February 25th and 26th at 8pm.

An especially important change is the growing presence of UCSB Arts & Lectures as a body that partners in commissioning original works. This year they are collaborating on four projects: Mark Morris, The Look of Love: An Evening of Dance to the Music of Burt Bacharach; Joyce DiDonato, EDEN; Danish String Quartet, The Döppelganger Project Part III, and Alisa

DakhaBrakha, from Ukraine, will offer a a sonic feast crafted from ancient Ukrainian folk melodies and embracing indie rock, pop, hip hop, and more at The Granada Theatre during the season’s opening week on Thursday, October 6th at 8pm.

Weilerstein, FRAGMENTS... Exciting! As the Executive Director pointed out, the depth of the calendar wouldn’t be possible without A&L’s many loyal supporters and benefactors. She singled out UCSB Arts & Lectures Council Co-Chair Rich Janssen and Producer Circle Members. In a thankyou for support they were given first dibs on subscriptions, from June 10th to the 17th when season subscriptions open to the public. Single tickets go on sale August 5th.

UCSB Arts & Lectures Council Co-Chair Rich Janssen, UCSB Professor of English Candace Waid, Executive Vice Chancellor David Marshall, Arts & Lectures Miller McCune Executive Director Celesta M. Billeci, Arts & Lectures Partner Betsy Atwater and SAGE Sara Miller McCune Dean of Social Sciences Charles Hale

As always, the season is packed with dance, music, authors, and thought leaders. This year it includes three new subscription series:

Vanguard, Americana, and Young at Heart. Young at Heart recognizes that “families aren’t the only ones who need rejuvenation.” Look for acts “guaranteed to satisfy every generation.” The new Vanguard series is “all about the new - new forms, new artists, and new approaches brought to you with an eye toward the future.”

Photo by Gregor Hohenberg

After opening night you’ll have a feel for this new kind of Americana. The series will embrace “the spirit of eclecticism and authenticity that has transformed the music world over the last two decades.”

Lang Lang will perform Schumann and Bach at The Granada Theatre on Monday, February 27th at 7pm.

The season reveal party also highlighted new staff and folks serving in new roles, such as Caitlin O’Hara taking on the mantle of the now retired Roman Baratiak as A&L Director of Public Lectures & Special Initiatives. Baratiak, who retired during the pandemic, was present for the announcement. For more information visit www.ArtsAndLectures.UCSB.edu

Community “Paddles Out” for SB Maritime Museum!

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


During COVID’s two year onslaught, the Maritime Museum’s Annual Gala & Fundraiser, an indoor event, couldn’t be held because of various health and safety protocols. With the creative thinking unleashed by the lockdown, the staff acted on a novel suggestion made by legendary surfer Shaun Tomson for an alternative solution: an outside event on the beach… a Paddle Out! Thanks to Tomson and the museum’s hardworking staff, the result was the ‘alternative’ benefit and beach party that is now a permanent fixture on the Maritime Museum’s annual calendar. With the SBMM’s signature hat in hand, I headed for the beach.

Greg Gorga, the Maritime Museum’s Executive Director, guided me to the check-in table where I was gifted with another signature SBMM chapeau for my husband, Bud, and a beach bag for me. “There’s lots to do here,” he said with a twinkle in his eye, suspecting that I was not exactly on my way to the water’s edge with the hardier guests. “We have delicious food from Romanti-Ezer, surf music by the Wrinkled Teenagers, and the Kids enjoyed making crafts opportunity to join in beach games and crafts for the kids… our great big beach party!” he laughed. An assortment of watercraft including surfboards, kayaks, and other self-propelled vessels were on display waiting for the signal to head out to sea.

As the crowd gathered for the opening ceremony, Gorga took the microphone to welcome guests and introduce the speakers. Antonette Cordero, former Chief of the Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation, began with a Chumash blessing before addressing the crowd. “As a member of the local Chumash band, I am grateful to be so near my ancestral home near the coast,” she exclaimed. “Here at the water’s edge, I am reminded that we are are all connected to the land and sea and to the creatures who reside there.

As I watched them fade toward the horizon, the messages delivered by both Antonette Codero and Shaun Tomson rang true. We are all voyagers on planet Earth, a tiny speck in a vast universe and caring for our home must be our number one priority.

T’S TRUE! Summer’s almost here and Leadbetter Beach is a very popular spot and a great place for a party! On Saturday, June 10th from 1 to 4pm in the afternoon, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum celebrated its second Paddle Out Fundraiser in support of the museum and to honor our community’s connection to the ocean. The idea of an outdoor event was inspired by the onslaught of the coronavirus when most events were either canceled or avoided by the cautious citizens of our community. But… when one door closes, another opens!

The next speaker was Shaun Tomson, former World Surfing Champion, environmentalist, author, filmmaker, and businessman, and the Honorary Chair of the Paddle Out. Originally from South Africa, he found Santa Barbara to be his spiritual home surrounded by mountains and the ocean he loves.“I am a huge fan of the Maritime Antonette Cordero and Shaun Tomson Museum and its mission,” stated Tomson. “This wonderful day is an opportunity for all members of the community to connect with each other, the Museum, the ocean, and our Santa Barbara Channel.” He also emphasized how important it is to honor our environment and care for it on behalf of all the creatures who call Earth home. Tomson concluded the ceremony by signaling the paddlers to head to the water’s edge and begin their journey out to sea. Photo by Jay Farbman

Speaking of multi-tiered platforms, Stage Director, Tara Faircloth, and Production Stage Manager, Kourtni Dale-Noll Mitchiner, moved people and furniture about that stationary set without clutter or confusion, abetted by several huge gilt frames of various sizes that descended from the fly tower on several occasions. At one point in the action, a frame descended and functioned as a “mirror” for a shaving scene. At other times the frames were used to project artwork with projections demarcating changing seasons, evolving emotions, and the passing of time.

Verdi’s La Traviata – Sex and the City Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE


RESENTING A LONG PROMISED AND EAGERLY AWAITED production of Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata, Opera Santa Barbara finished its 2021-2022 season with a return to the Granada Theatre last Sunday afternoon. With a plot potpourri featuring promiscuous sex as backstory; true love perceived as grifting; rampant 19th century misogyny a given; social redemption too little, too late; and tragic death the inevitable denouement; what’s not to like? Chorus, orchestra, dancers, singing cast, and audience embraced this special, oneperformance only occasion in the manner of long separated friends - heartily. Our grand opera company was back, and it felt good. Since January 2022 performing arts groups have begun to emerge with renewed vigor from the dark cave of repeated lockdowns and limited audience access. The road to full fiscal recovery will be uphill, but last Sunday for the first time in two years, a packed Granada audience was not required to wear facial masks. Yes! A slippery slope, judging which of Verdi’s operas is the most popular (there are so many), but Traviata is certainly near the top. Its tunes are universally recognized, if not with the specificity of a musicologist. The opera’s libretto, developed from Alexandre Dumas fils’ 1848 novel and play, La Dame aux camélias (The Lady of the camelias). Verdi saw the play in Paris in 1852, and it so inspired him, his operatic take, which he titled La Traviata, was finished by March 1853. The opera’s themes, like the novel, were popular in the mid 19th century, and remain so today - redemption through true love, and the inevitable karma of a woman gone astray. Think Madama Butterfly (Puccini).

June 17, 2022

Tenor Nathan Granner as Alfredo and Soprano Anya Matanovic as Violetta

Think Carmen (Bizet). For Opera Santa Barbara’s Artistic and General Director, Kostis Protopapas, conducting from the orchestra pit last Sunday must have felt particularly special after such a long time – two years getting the production together and on stage. The Opera Santa Barbara Orchestra, no strangers to the score, obliged Protopapas with what to this listener’s ear was a calmly nuanced, never overwrought interpretation of Verdi’s masterpiece. The music was allowed to play itself. Refreshing. Sunday’s production also reflected, brilliantly, how imagination, implied reality, and magical ingenuity can seduce the eye without busting the bank. François-Pierre Couture’s projections and scenic design, in tandem with Azra King-Abadi’s simple and simply ravishing lighting architecture, created the illusion of bigger things, like ballrooms and summer villas, while also conveying powerfully, symbolic messages, like the use of red at crucial moments in the narrative. A particularly beguiling light and projection illusion at the opening, and again at the end of the opera, convinced my eyes the stage was a slant stage; an amazing hallucination, considering the reality was multi-tiered platforms.

Choreographer, Cecily MacDougall, created several pointillist movement fragments for a small “Greek chorus” of dancers, who silently punctuated the action from time to time with visual symbolism and narrative subtext, while Stacie Logue’s costume design, late 19th century patterns in ambient browns, khaki, grays, and lavender, lent continuity to the action, and complemented Heather Sterling Morse’s hair and makeup stylings. La Traviata, like Carmen and Madama Butterfly, pivots on the principal female role, in Verdi’s case, the character of Violetta Valery. Soprano Anya Matanovic enjoys a glorious voice, by turns variegated, agile, and in her low register, portentous. Her coloratura soars, her acting delivers. Wonderful. Tenor Nathan Granner, (Violetta’s lover Alfredo Germont), commands a powerful, emotionally fraught, versatile and exciting instrument. His acting is superb, his command of this challenging role, vocally and emotionally spot-on. A delight. Ditto, baritone Joel Balzun (Giorgio Germont, Alfredo’s father). A delightfully collaborative supporting ensemble, including baritone Matthew Peterson (Baron Douphol), bass Omar Rodriguez (Marquis D’Obigny), mezzo-soprano Max Potter (Flora Bervoix), tenor Benjamin Brecher (Gastone De Letorieres), bass Norman Espinoza (Doctor Grenvil), and soprano Adrien Roberts (Annina), were in the good company of the Opera Santa Barbara Chorus.

This virtual program arrives after the cancellation of MLKSB’s in-person event due to health concerns this past February. Its keynote speaker will be Guy R. Walker, President of the Endowment for Youth Community which offers scholarships to African American and Black students along the Central Coast. Walker was the fourth black student to graduate from Dunn School in Los Olivos in the 1970s, and has since dedicated himself to supporting youth education.

HE INSPIRING TEACHINGS AND LASTING IMPACT OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. WILL JOIN SANTA BARBARA’S JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION this weekend, as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Santa Barbara Committee (MLKSB) presents their new, virtual program on TV Santa Barbara June 17th through 20th. Featuring speakers, songs, and poetry, the program’s theme derives from a quote Dr. King wrote in Birmingham, Alabama, on April 14th, 1963: “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, ties in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects us all.”

Following the presentation, inspiring time-lapse moving photography, will be projected on the outside wall of the Lobero Theatre from 8 to 10pm, letting attendees and passersby appreciate nature’s beauty.

Premio Eco Héroe en el Lobero

Celebra los diversos ecosistemas de nuestro planeta y las personas que trabajan para protegerlos cuando la Red de Permacultura de Santa Bárbara presente el segundo premio anual Eco Héroe al micólogo Paul Stamets y al galardonado director de fotografía Louie Schwartzberg. El dúo colaboró para crear el libro y película popular, Fantastic Fungi, y se mostrarán fragmentos del documental. La presentación, junto con una oportunidad de preguntas y respuestas de la audiencia, se llevará a cabo en el Teatro Lobero a las 6:pm el viernes, 17 de junio. Para boletos ($20-100) visita www.lobero.org Después de la presentación, se proyectarán inspiradoras fotografías en movimiento en lapso de tiempo en la pared exterior del Teatro Lobero de 8 a 10pm, lo que permitirá a los asistentes y transeúntes apreciar la belleza de la naturaleza

Bookworm Corner: Hair Love


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

HEARTFELT CELEBRATION OF A FATHER’S LOVE AND BLACK BEAUTY, Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry and illustrated by Vashti Harrison makes for a positive read this Father’s Day and beyond. Adapted into a picture book from the 2019 Oscar-winning short film of the same name, the touching story focuses on Zuri, a young Black girl whose hair “has a mind of its own.” Luckily, Zuri’s dad is always there to help braid it into different styles, making her feel like a superhero. Readers follow Zuri and her dad as they prepare her hair for a very special day, which is ultimately revealed as the day her mother returns home after battling cancer. In meaningfully representing Black hair, Hair Love presents kids with hair like Zuri’s the chance to admire its beauty, and grants other readers greater appreciation for different hair types. Moreover, the book represents a family dynamic where Zuri’s dad primarily cares for her, showing young readers how fathers can and often do accomplish tasks that social stereotypes ascribe to mother figures. Ultimately, readers are left with a story as moving as it is culturally relevant, making it a delightful, important addition to any bookshelf. Bookworm Corner is a weekly column dedicated to highlighting children’s and young adult books that carry positive messages. It is penned by Daisy Scott, a lifelong reader and lover of children’s literature who holds her degree in literature and writing from UC San Diego.

Matthew Floyd Miller and Daniel Gerroll star in Ensemble Theatre Company’s Sleuth


NLY A NOVELIST WITH A CUNNING IMAGINATION COULD PUT TOGETHER THE PERFECT CRIME — as a set up for a fictitious novel — which doubles as the set up for the lively, intriguing, and laughter filled play at the Ensemble Theatre Company called Sleuth.

As drama goes, the dialogue is scorching hot and bitter cold. These actors nail their parts to the boards, with novelist Andrew Wyke played to perfection by Daniel Gerrol and the foil, interloper, and wife thief Milo, played by Mattew Floyd Miller – deftly up to the challenge and playfulness of his role. This twosome engage in a worthy theatrical duel in this riddle-filled slippery slope story. Inspector Doppler, played by Cornelius Patrick, nearly stole the show as he unfolded the con. The set is exquisite and received a gasp of delight as the curtain went up. The stagecraft was superb and the direction by Jenny Sullivan was award winning in quality. Sleuth is a must see, as the ETC winds up its season. - M.W.

Economic VOICE

By Harlan Green

What the twin 2021 bills have done instead is create record employment, with full employment achieved 26 months after the COVID recession, vs. the 76 months it took to reach full employment after the Great Recession, which was because congress shortchanged the prior recovery with too little aid. Former Fed Chair Ben Bernanke said on Fareed Zakaria’s GPS Sunday that he doubts that the current inflation surge might turn into another stagflationary episode. The 1970’s stagflation was caused by 14 years of high inflation, whereas we are suffering from just six months of high inflation, after 40 years with very little inflation, since the 1970s.

Daisy Scott, Writer; Calendar Editor • News@VoiceSB.com



Local News for a Global Village | www.VoiceSB.com

A recurrence of the stagflation of the 1970s is only possible if rising interest rates engineered by the Fed cause a prolonged slowdown in business activity and consumer spending. The 1970’s inflationary spiral was caused by policies that enabled workers to get raises every time there was a spike in inflation. Workers’ salaries today are barely keeping up with inflation and declining, rather than staying ahead of it. The rate of inflation over the past year, based on the more reliable PCE Index, slowed to 6.3 percent in April from a 40year high of 6.6 percent in March, the first decline in a year and a half. Coutesy of www.EPI.org

June 17, 2022

May’s U.S. CPI surge of 8.6 percent was concentrated in three categories: airfares, used car prices, and shelter costs, all in the service industries. Most of the inflation to date is in the goods sector. Surging shelter costs will be the most worrisome trend and that the Fed will watch most closely. Higher inflation is occurring all over the world from the same factors, which signals that it’s mostly about rising food and energy prices affected by panicky traders worried about food and energy shortages. For example, Russia’s inflation rate is currently18 percent, Turkey’s 70 percent and the E.U. inflation rate is eight percent. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions that it triggered account for more than a third of the 40-year high CPI annual inflation of 8.6 percent, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, as reported by MarketWatch. The real question is, if longer term inflation is embedded in consumers’ expectations as happened in the 1970s. But, that would mean the so-called ‘supply-shocks’ from COVID, China, and the Ukraine war, that are the main causes of the current inflation rate, won’t eventually subside. Why wouldn’t they?

Book Review

Strange Antlers: Turning to Nature for Inspiration and Answers By Daisy Scott / VOICE


VOKING MYSTICAL NATURAL IMAGERY TO EXPLORE THE HUMAN CONDITION, MEMORY, AND OUR CURRENT POLITICAL MOMENT, Strange Antlers by Richard Jarrette is a deeply intimate reading experience. Published earlier this year, the collection marks Jarrette’s newest collection of free verse poetry, showcasing his skill in capturing abstract concepts and emotions within mere lines of text. The result is an almost transcendental compendium that raises more questions than it answers, inspiring readers to reflect upon nature’s constancy and nuanced beauty. Having lived in the Southern Appalachian Highlands of North Carolina, and a current Central Coast resident, Jarrette has consistently turned to nature for poetic inspiration. His past books include Beso the Donkey, A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances, The Beatitudes of Ekaterina, and The Pond. Divided into three parts, each of the poems included within Strange Antlers act as stand-alone works rather than connecting to a larger narrative. This sense of independence is further heightened by the poems’ reliance on their titles to provide readers context for Jarrette’s imagery and comments. In using titles such as Clouds Mixed with the Smoke of Another Fifty Homes Burning in Fires South of Here, and Apart from Righteous Fury at the Neo-Nazis Maybe Some of This Rage is Aging Melancholy, readers feel as if they are peering into small windows of Jarrette’s psyche as he examines his life, memories, and society.

by Richard Jarrette

However, Jarrette maintains a feeling of unity across the collection by consistently turning to natural imagery to place humanity and his emotions into a broader perspective and indicate that we are all part of something larger than ourselves. Much of this is accomplished through brief vignettes that pair stunning beauty with serious subjects like death or politics. Memorable by Richard Jarrette examples include lines such as “little black and yellow / little butterfly / you make the dying juniper pretty,” or “a day so autumn pure it praises / the sorrow of countless farewells.” Repeating natural symbols, especially crows, swans, sparrows, and the sky, also provide a sense of constancy. Jarrette’s focus on birdlife almost seems to mirror his role as a poet, assuming a bird’s-eye view of issues only to swoop down for closer examinations when something strikes his inspiration. There are also multiple repeating characters, including Jarrette’s grandmother, father, and daughter. This allows overarching themes of family, nostalgia, and the nature of legacy to gradually emerge in a poignant manner; as if the reader is getting to know Jarrette’s history over a budding relationship. Jarrette also continually references the plethora of writers that inspire him, ranging from ancient Chinese writers such as Li Po and Yang Wan-Li to more modern poets like W.S. Merwin, Joy Harjo, and Jane Hirshfield. In many cases, Jarrette addresses these poets as old friends, personally responding to their works and directly incorporating quotes. This ultimately highlights that art and poetry — much like nature — have a lasting, constantly evolving impact on humanity.

While readers unfamiliar with these writers may initially feel disconnected from these references, Jarrette’s intimate style surmounts this issue, clearly drawing out the heart of his and the other writers’ ideas. Strange Antlers also includes an index of all the works Jarrette references, motivating readers to look up the original texts if they desire further context or to reflect upon their own emotional responses. The collection’s final multi-part poem, Rumor of Your Passage as Starlight, serves as the culmination of Jarrette’s skills to write ethereal yet powerfully real verses, cementing Strange Antlers as a uniquely compelling read.

Finding FiFi A Global Treasure Hunt in Santa Barbara UIDED BY A SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE, Florence (FiFi) Russell built her creative life around travel - from sketching along the Seine in Paris to public markets in Mexico. Her joie de vivre percolates just below the surface in a series of watercolors, sketches, and one clay piece that will be on view at no less than eleven local art venues next month. Arranged as a kind of treasure hunt, the multi-venue exhibition offers fruit from a lifetime of careful observation, and is the basis of a community-wide birthday celebration of this long time Santa Barbara resident who turns 100 on July 24th.

Florence (FiFi) Russell

Collectively titled Finding FiFi: Watercolor Travels with Florence Russell, the various exhibitions, ranging from individual pieces to whole groupings of work, were instigated by FiFi’s friends - Larry Iwerks and Rita Ferri.

Participating venues include: 10 West Gallery, CLAY Studio, Corridan Gallery, Gallery 113, Goleta Valley Art Association at the Goleta Library, La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts’s Fine Line and Illuminations Galleries, Larry Iwerks Studio Gallery, Santa Barbara Art Association’s exhibition at the Santa Barbara Public Library’s Faulkner Gallery, Santa Barbara Fine Art, and the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum. Ferri, who’s reputation as an artist’s advocate and for careful, creative curation proceeds her, issued this call to the community: “Throughout the month of July we invite Santa Barbara art lovers to celebrate her [Florence’s] 100th birthday with us, by Finding FiFi and visiting each listed location where at least one original watercolor will be exhibited.” Florence, known as FiFi by her world of friends, began her travels early. She first moved to Santa Barbara as a child where her father was a physician and psychiatrist for Stanley McCormick, at Riven Rock.

Reflecting back to that time, during a recent conversation in her Santa Barbara home, she recalled she may have turned to art to as she adjusted to her new home - noting she was not “one of Sunday Mass by Florence (FiFi) Russell those ready made children Southern California museums and schools where she worked in that just had this hand.” She continued, “No, I didn’t do that... the early ‘50s. During her lengthy career, Russell was Education It’s mostly through hard work, and understanding, and interest, Curator at Long Beach Museum of Art; taught art and was the and concentration... I moved from one part of the country to Department Chair at the Norwalk-La Mirada School District in another and I suppose I needed some sort of inner strength or Norwalk, CA, and was voted teacher of the year. activity to sort of hold myself secure. And my mother and father Enjoying this type of travel, and having summers free, of course were very occupied. I had two younger brothers and Russell traveled the world, painting en plein air. Along the way she was very occupied being a mother.” she learned from those she encountered and the scenes she After graduating from Scripps College in 1944 where she captures in over 25 countries she visited. “Experienced artists studied with sculptor Albert Stewart, painters Phil Dyke, Henry always say,” she explained, “if you want to paint or if you want Lee McFee, Jean Goodwin Ames, and Southern California to do anything, you have to do sketch after Regionalist Millard Sheets, and attending sketch; just get out all the time.” They taught Claremont Graduate School for a year, she “get a sketchbook, (which I did), put it on finished out the last years of World War II your shoulder, and don’t let a single day go by working with a Haverford Quaker Group without doing some drawings. So, I took this under the auspices of United Nations seriously and I thought, well, that’s a good Relief And Rehabilitation in their D.C. idea. So I always had a sketchbook on my headquarters. There, she learned about shoulder... and I always had a drawing pen rehabilitation and helped people who with me. And the first day I just start doing were refugees, set on making a new life for new little things. Then the next day you sort themselves and their families. of get going. And after a while you learn how When the war ended, and while to draw...

She was impacted into her lifetime ardor for travel. by a statement of his: “I can sit down anyplace and make a Florence’s travels hit high gear after she met Thurman painting.” She explained, “He didn’t have to be taken by airplane Hewitt.

He can sit right here... and on painting trips - his trips became the model for art traveling. see a composition. And, I can do that right now. I could see a “There was a man named Thurman Hewitt and he lived in composition just sitting here.” Mexico City. And he was an artists’ person, kind of a For decades, Russell captured daily scenes repeated around decorator, and he was acquainted with visitors from the world with a fresh sense of color and an eye for composition. the United States that would come down there. Along According to Ferri, Russell’s goal has always been “to make the way, he heard about or became acquainted with some doctors and they’re traveling together in a group, painting sing.” Those songs can be heard around town in July. Take a moment to delight in the treasure hunt. Open your ears and he thought, ‘Well, that’s very interesting. Why and celebrate her long art-filled life. don’t I have a group of artists traveling together?’” Courtesy photos

Soon FiFi was joining in Hewitt’s groups that always included a professional artist to assist participants with their art work documenting their travels. These travels, as well as her continuing her studies by attending the Rex Brandt Watercolor Summer School in Corona del Mar and master class workshops with renowned artists such as George Post, Joan Irvine, Gerald Brommer, the well-known artist Milford Zornes, shaped her artistic practice after graduate school.

Going Global: Abstract Art at Mid-Century


NVESTIGATING THE SYMBOLISM, REACTIONS, AND LASTING INFLUENCES OF ABSTRACT ART WITH NUANCED REFLECTION, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art will present its newest exhibition, Going Global: Abstract Art at Mid-Century on June 21st. Spanning 35 from the museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition celebrates 20th century abstraction in all its forms, from paintings and lithography to sculpture, photography, and even kinetic art. The exhibition will remain open through September 25th. “Abstraction was a Rorschach test on to which the anxieties, fears, and hopes Ernst Wilhelm Nay, Chromatik stark und zart (Untitled), 1956.

Artists range from well-known figures such as Isamu Noguchi and Pierre Soulages to individuals who may not be familiar to viewers, including Kenzo Okada and Edward Chávez. To best capture the complex subject of abstract art and all it encompasses, the artists’ works are divided across four sections: “Op Art,” “Layers,” “Gestural Abstraction,” and To plan your visit to the SB Museum of Art, visit www.sbma.net “Signs & Symbols.” Photo courtesy of SBMA
