UCSB Arts & Lectures Single Ticket Sales Begin

A Season of Interdisciplinary Stars

UNITING DAZZLING MUSICIANS, SHARP-WITTED INTELLECTUALS, AND NIMBLE DANCERS in our idyllic town by the sea, UCSB Arts & Lectures closely monitors the pulse of America’s creative heartbeat. Its upcoming 2023-2024 season, which will kick off on October 1st with Grammy Award winner Jacob Collier, promises an exciting line-up of over 45 events — with more due to be announced as the year progresses.

Now, as locals look forward to the approaching fall cultural season, single, non-subscription ticket sales for all UCSB Arts & Lectures events are about to begin.

“Once we open the box office for single ticket sales on Friday, August 4th at 10 am, seats for our most popular events will go quickly,” said Celesta M. Billeci, UCSB Arts & Lectures’ Miller McCune Executive Director. “I’m especially excited for our season opener, the young musician Jacob Collier, who will be at Campbell Hall on October 1st, and for the festivities we’re organizing for that special night. Jacob headlines the Hollywood Bowl just before making his Santa Barbara debut; the Arts & Lectures audience will get to see him in a much more intimate setting, and it is sure to be a night to remember.”

As the UCSB Arts & Lectures season opener, Collier will fill UCSB Campbell Hall with his dynamic fusion of R&B, jazz, and pop music. A five-time Grammy honoree, Collier’s vocals meld with engaging soundscapes and audience interaction to create a truly unique concert experience. Locals who opt for a top tier ticket will be invited to UCSB Arts & Lectures’ opening night party in addition to the October 1st performance.

The Martha Graham Dance Company will add to the artistic momentum at the Granada Theatre on Wednesday, October 4th. A pioneer in the contemporary dance world, the company has been hailed as “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe” by The Washington Post.

A voyage into Americana music rounds out opening week, as roots trio Nickel Creek transforms the Granada Theatre into a folksy music box on Sunday, October 8th. Featuring mandolinist Chris Thile, violinist Sara Watkins, and guitarist Sean Watkins, the trio arrives hot on the heels of their recently released album, Celebrants. Folk band Hawktail will also deliver a special guest performance.

Sonic thrills will continue throughout the season, offering opportunities for individuals of all ages and interests to view cross-genre superstars and broaden their horizons.

Looking ahead, classical music lovers will delight in an intimate concert by pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, violinist Lisa Batiashvili, and cellist Gautier Capuçon, while history buffs can experience the music of America’s many immigrant communities as performed by Silkroad Ensemble.

Broadway will overtake the Granada when star actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth lends her powerhouse voice to the unforgettable melodies of Dolly Parton, Barbara Streisand, and more. Barely a month later, Mariachi Sol de México will present a holiday concert that celebrates the culture and beauty of Mexican music traditions.

Bookworms will also be in fine supply for the 2023-2024 season, as essayist Pico Iyer returns for his popular series of onstage author conversations, beginning with biographer Walter Isaacson. Additional authors to appear include investigative journalist Jeff Goodell, humorist David Sedaris, and National Book Award finalist Lauren Groff.

As ever, dance from ballet to contemporary styles will be well represented, with gravity and genre-defying performances by Tiler Peck & Friends, Alonzo King LINES Ballet, and Batsheva Dance Company.

“Over the next few weeks we will be announcing exciting additions to our schedule,” shared Billeci. “Come out to hear the most influential voices on the day’s hottest topics and be inspired by world-renowned artists from across the globe.”

Single ticket sales will begin at 10am on Friday, August 4th. Series subscription sales will also continue, inviting locals to plan ahead and save up to 25 percent on UCSB Arts & Lectures events. Visit www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu

United Way of Santa Barbara County Celebrates $50,000 Gift for Learning Centers

A$50,000 GIFT


tutoring program has been made by community members Mike and Betty Noling. Managed by United Way of Santa Barbara County, the United Learning Center supports local kindergarten through sixth grade students with individual academic help crafted by tutors.

These tutors are trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of literacy instruction, which supports students with a variety of learning differences including dyslexia.

“The Nolings’ generous gift means that students will continue to receive this vital academic support. This donation will continue to pay dividends in the lives of students for years to come,” said Steve Ortiz, president and CEO of United Way of Santa Barbara County.

The donation was celebrated during the 35th Heritage Club Luncheon on July 13th. The Heritage Club is comprised of community members who have made long-term contributions to United Way through planned giving. United Way staff kicked off the celebration by joining community members and students from the Franklin Elementary School ULC to unveil a decorative rock and plaque installed on school grounds to recognize the donation.

Following the unveiling at the school, a celebratory lunch commenced at La Cumbre Country Club. Mike and Betty Noling were the honorees at the event, which was sponsored by Kayne Anderson Rudnick Wealth Advisors.

Half of the Nolings’ gift will go to United Way’s Children’s Services Endowment Fund to support the ULC program in perpetuity. The remaining half will sustain the entire current program, which operates at three sites and serves up to 75 students per year, through 2025.

Research shows that on average, program participants improved two reading grade levels after participation in the 12-week program. Students also improved in phonological awareness, word decoding, and sight word mastery. www.unitedwaysb.org

Angels Foster Care Launches New Kinship Care Program

GREATER RESOURCES AND SUPPORT are now available for families and children navigating foster care, thanks to Angels Foster Care’s new kinship care program

“Family & Friends Together.” The program provides intensive, trauma-informed multigenerational support to kinship families caring for foster children from birth to age five in Santa Barbara County.

Angels partnered with Santa Barbara County Child Welfare Services, Towbes Foundation, Bower Foundation, Hazen Foundation, and private donors to launch and fund the program.

“Family & Friends Together is especially important because family members caring for children in foster care face unique challenges,” said Holly Carmody, Executive Director of Angels Foster Care. “They typically do not have much time to prepare for fostering; they often deal with fear, guilt and anger; and they may have challenges navigating complex family relationships. It is vital that kinship caregivers receive the extra support they need during this time, and we are grateful to partner with SB County Child Welfare Services, private local foundations and our donors to offer this important program.”

FFT assists with case management, referrals, individualized education, and brief therapeutic intervention to kinship caregivers and the children they are fostering. An Angels Foster Care social worker meets with each kinship family to conduct an assessment, craft a personalized family plan, and work closely with the family and SB County Child Welfare Services to help each child thrive.

Marlene Velazquez, who has been with Angels for over a year, has taken on the new role as the social worker for FFT families. Velazquez has nearly two decades of experience in the social services field and previously served as a social worker at the Santa Barbara County Department of Social Services. She holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology, sociology, and bible studies from Biola University. www.angelsfostercare.org.

Community Environmental Council Launches Campaign to Prepare Central Coast Residents for Extreme Heat Impacts

THE COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL (CEC) recently announced it was named a member of the national Extreme Heat Resilience Alliance (EHRA), an initiative of the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center (Arsht-Rock). As an EHRA member, CEC will bring awareness to the increasing threat of extreme heat events in California’s Central Coast Region—like the widespread heat wave last week that sparked the first excessive heat warning of the season.

Assisted by the new partnership, CEC is launching an Extreme Heat campaign for the months of July, August, and September. The campaign will share stories, tips, and resources to help California Central Coast residents learn how to protect themselves and their communities from rising temperatures, and share what local organizations and municipalities are doing to build heat resilience. Information will be shared via CEC’s website, email newsletter, and social media accounts. California residents can also find statewide resources from the Governor’s Office at https://heatreadyca.com

“As a Climate leader for California’s Central Coast, we recognize that without community resilience, extreme heat will continue to exacerbate the underlying inequalities within our region,” said CEC Director of Climate Resilience Em Johnson. “Leading a regional coalition of over fifteen government agencies, grassroots organizations, and community-based organizations, our vision as an EHRA partner is to reduce our region’s economic and health disparities related to the prevalence of extreme heat.”

Ventura County is warming faster than any other county in the contiguous U.S., with neighboring Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties not far behind. In 2021, Ventura County alone experienced 20 extreme heat events—more than any previously recorded years. Higher temperatures put the health and well-being of the most vulnerable—including agricultural workers, youth, and the elderly—in serious jeopardy.

One action already underway in Santa Barbara County is the establishment of community climate resilience hubs that provide centralized disaster services, support, and education to residents who are most vulnerable or at high risk during disasters. Individuals and organizations are working together to design and plan what services will be offered at these Hubs, and making plans for how to operate during climate disruptions.

EL CONSEJO COMUNITARIO DEL MEDIOAMBIENTE (CEC) anunció recientemente que ha sido nombrado miembro de la Alianza para la Resiliencia ante el Calor Extremo (EHRA, por sus siglas en inglés) una iniciativa del Centro de Resiliencia de la Fundación Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller (Arsht-Rock). Como miembro de la EHRA, el CEC brindará concientización sobre la creciente amenaza de episodios de calor extremo en la región de la costa central de California, como la ola de calor de la semana pasada que provocó el primer aviso de calor excesivo de la temporada.

Con la ayuda de esta nueva colaboración, el CEC estará lanzando una campaña de calor extremo para los meses de julio, agosto, y septiembre. La campaña compartirá historias, consejos y recursos para ayudar a los residentes de la costa central de California a aprender a protegerse a sí mismos y a sus comunidades de las alzas de las temperaturas, y compartirá lo que las organizaciones locales y los municipios están haciendo para desarrollar la resiliencia ante el calor. La información se difundirá a través del sitio web del CEC, boletín electrónicoy las redes sociales. Los residentes de California también pueden encontrar recursos estatales de la Oficina del Gobernador en https://heatreadyca.com

“Como líderes climáticos de la costa central de California, somos conscientes de que, sin resiliencia comunitaria, el calor extremo seguirá empeorando las desigualdades dentro de nuestra región”, declaró Em Johnson, Directora de resiliencia climática del CEC. “Liderando una coalición regional de más de quince agencias gubernamentales, organizaciones de base popular, y organizaciones comunitarias, nuestra visión como socios de la EHRA es reducir las desigualdades económicas y sanitarias de nuestra región relacionadas con la prevalencia del calor extremo.”

El condado de Ventura se está calentando más rápido que cualquier otro condado de los EE.UU. contiguos, y los condados vecinos de Santa Bárbara y San Luis Obispo no se quedan muy atrás. En 2021, sólo en el condado de Ventura se registraron 20 episodios de calor extremo, más que en ningún otro año anterior. Las altas temperaturas ponen en grave peligro la salud y el bienestar de los más vulnerables, incluyendo a los trabajadores agrícolas y los jóvenes.

Una medida que ya está en marcha en el condado de Santa Bárbara es la creación de centros comunitarios de resiliencia climática que ofrezcan servicios centralizados en caso de catástrofe, apoyo y educación a los residentes más vulnerables o en situación de alto riesgo durante las catástrofes. Individuos y organizaciones están trabajando juntos para diseñar y planificar los servicios que se ofrecerán en estos centros y planificar su funcionamiento en caso de trastornos climáticos.

Los miembros de la comunidad interesados en saber más sobre cómo pueden implementar en su región los Centros de Resiliencia pueden obtener más información en: https://cecsb.org/resilience-hubs

Santa Barbara Zoo Opens New Ranger Station

Music Academy Festival Orchestra

JoAnn Falletta:

Surprises & Satisfactions

AMERICAN CONDUCTOR JOANN FALLETTA is one of those extraordinary forces of art and nature who tears the fabric of convention to shreds but always tidies up the scene of each of her several apotheoses.

Importantly, she never looks back. The litany of orchestras Falletta has helmed and recordings she’s made is legion. Watching her conducting last Saturday’s Music Academy Festival Orchestra concert at the Granada Theatre, a concoction of spicy magical realism (Roberto Sierra’s Fandangos), French angst (Maurice Ravel’s La Valse), and Russian mystery (Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, Op. 45), it became clear immediately Falletta was not just in charge but in supreme command of every color-filled, rhythm-bursting moment of Fandangos and later, the Ravel (a revelatory performance), and moody Rachmaninoff.

Walking onto the Granada stage last Saturday looking for all the world like a worried mom fussing over her massive family of musicians, JoAnn Falletta’s conducting

– straight and clean and clear, but not particularly charismatic – did not in the first nanoseconds of the evening appear to be lighting any fires. Then the high brass fanfares began in the opening moments of the Sierra piece – unique sparkles of thrillingly complicated color. Falletta, still no-nonsense about stick technique, nevertheless began a slow melt into a subtler and palpably effective body language of rhythm and pulse that successfully lured her colleagues into a slow-dance crescendo of such excited intensity the piece reached full rollicking throttle while the audience held its breath; a spectacular take by Roberto Sierra on two earlier fandangos by predecessors Soler and Boccherini. The orchestra, now thoroughly seasoned as an ensemble for this, its next to last concert of the summer season, gave Fandangos a slick performance, and Falletta 120 percent of their attention.

Before conducting Maurice Ravel’s La valse (19191920), JoAnn Falletta took a few minutes to instruct the audience about the piece. Both La valse and Boléro (1928) hold messages in their harmonic and structural incongruities. Ravel, a survivor barely, of World War I was injured physically and psychologically by the experience. La Valse, like Boléro, eventually collapses of its own weight and hysteria; the waltz pattern in La valse is a musical totem to antebellum Europe, washed away in a confused tidal wave of blood and despair.

The opening bars, conducted by Falletta as a throbbing heartbeat, were just the first of several interpretive revelations brought to the listener’s attention. Little pockets of color not noticed before came into audible play under

Falletta’s microscopic attentions. And with unerring noblesse oblige, Falletta advocated on behalf of Ravel’s sense of duty and outrage about the effects of world conflict on societies. Finesse and elasticity of bar line, orchestral sighs and pouts, ominous forebodings from the bottom of the orchestra that build to its hysterical climax – made for a particularly thoughtful and inspired interpretation of La valse.

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s last major composition, the Symphonic Dances, Op. 45 (1940), were composed during the composer’s only stay in the United States at Centerport, New York, overlooking Long Island Sound. Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra premiered the work in January 1941, as another world war began to ravage the European continent, including the composer’s homeland. Falletta and the Festival Orchestra plumbed the richly Russo-nostalgic three dances of the suite with particular emphasis on Rachmaninoff’s gorgeous orchestrations, including his lush string writing, which Falletta dug into with unabashed gusto. Balances throughout and between various sections of the orchestra were carefully tweaked by the conductor for maximum color. If heartbreak were an instrument, Rachmaninoff’s use of alto sax, his breathtaking melodies for high strings, his orchestral whispers and sighs describe the composer’s homesickness with passion. Falletta, whose powers of persuasion are those of a goddess – gentle, and without error – gave her Festival Orchestra colleagues several lessons in the art of interpretation, and her audience several opportunities to cheer.

Hahn Hall Hosts a Delightful Cabaret 1979

ABARET 1979, held the evening of July 27th and in the afternoon on July 29th 2023, provided a nostalgic and entertaining mélange of popular songs and jingles from the 1960s and 1970s. This is the adventurous director James Darrah’s newest creative opera project which was co-produced by Craig Terry. Held within the elegance of the Hahn Hall, the show was a recognizable look back that gave an exuberant spotlight to the Lehrer Vocal Institute’s singers chosen for this summer’s program.

Cabaret 1979 provided a re-listening to a bygone era of the swinging ‘60s and ‘70s, a surprising weaving of songs by famous composers including Michel Legrand, Randy Newman, Jule Styne, Joni Mitchell,

Carole King, Johnny Cash, and even an instrumental interlude featuring composer John Williams’ themes from Star Wars. The pop groups and stars represented included Abba, Lionel Richie, Sonny & Cher, Elton John, John Denver, and The Carpenters. The experience was a little like a cross between watching a studio audience sitcom per the stage furniture and a bright vacuum cleaner, and a 1930s live on the air radio show with an assortment of tunes sung over a downstage solitary microphone and audio headgear.

One of the strongest numbers was from the Broadway musical Funny Girl (which put Barbra Streisand into the stratosphere) with an stirring interpretation of People from soprano Angela Lamar and accompanist Beatriz Batista. Another zenith was Tivoli Treloar’s singing of Joni Mitchell’s The

Circle Game with Meghan Rhoades at the piano. The zig-zagging selections concluded with Leonard Cohen’s masterwork song, Hallelujah, a company-wide and touching finale. It was intriguing to hear these operatrained voices interpret, with varying levels of success, the stable of popular music from the past, including commercial jingles rarely heard anymore.

The cabaret was entertaining throughout, including the joyous staging from director Darrah. Visual artist Adam Larsen showed off his expertise with inventive projections at the back of the stage. The costume designer was Molly Irelan, created bright and sexy costumes based on 1960s prototypes, including Go-Go boots, mini-skirts, and Hollywood style wigs, and there was even a drag outfit. The characters, all over-the-top

exuberant, rambled around a drab setting of furniture with visual backdrop references to the 1960s romantic comics that brought to mind the canvas compositions of Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein.

All those involved including the musicians and production staff can be proud of their accomplishments for such an entertaining program. The audience, at least most of them, were probably familiar with the music and the obvious faintly remembered references. The program sponsors included Shirley and Seymour Lehrer, the Lucifer Lighting Compay, the Luria/Budgor Family Foundation, the Zegar Family Foundation and the supportive members of the Music Academy Auxiliary.

Sadako Peace Day

A Time for Community Reflection

FLUTTERING TOKENS FOLDED WITH HOPE, PEACE, AND LOVE, paper cranes also serve as a poignant reminder of a wish unfulfilled. In 1955, 12-year-old Sadako Sasaki folded over a thousand origami cranes in accordance with the Japanese legend that doing so would grant her a wish. A radiation victim of the United States’ nuclear attack on Hiroshima, Sadako only wished for the

opportunity to defeat leukemia and abandon her hospital bed.

In memory of Sadako’s bravery and other innocent victims of war, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will host its annual free Sadako Peace Day gathering from 6 to 7pm on Wednesday, August 9th at La Casa de Maria Retreat Center. Dozens of advocates, musicians, poets, and community members from all walks of life

will unite for an evening of reflection through testimony and art.

“Art is powerful and it’s a powerful way of communicating about the world and communicating our vision for a better world. For us, that vision very clearly includes no nuclear weapons,” shared Dr. Ivana N. Hughes, NAPF President. “This is about touching people’s hearts, minds, and souls and also giving everybody an opportunity for reflection.”

A Santa Barbara-based nonprofit, NAPF leads the charge for a future free of nuclear weapons by advocating for international policies and presenting educational programming. For 29 years, the organization has commemorated Sadako Peace Day by inviting community members to learn about Sadako and the countless other hibakushas, the Japanese word for people irrevocably harmed by the

1945 nuclear attacks.

Today, Sadako’s determination has cemented the paper crane as an international symbol of peace.

“It’s a beautiful story about our message to the world that peace is really the only way to go, and that the victims of those bombings were not just the people who died at the moment, but there were many victims for years to come from the radiation effects,” explained Hughes. “That, of course, is what makes nuclear weapons so different from so many other ways of waging war.”

This year’s event, which is hosted on the Nagasaki bombing’s 78th anniversary, will immerse attendees in the natural beauty of La Casa de Maria’s Sadako Peace Garden. Given that La Casa de Maria is still recovering from the 2018 Montecito debris flow, the center’s reopening exclusively for NAPF is a remarkable tribute to the event’s significance.

“We’re incredibly grateful to La Casa de Maria and the Immaculate Heart Community,” expressed Hughes, adding this is a rare opportunity for community members to visit the center’s beautiful grounds.

Dr. Jimmy Hara, who was born in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, will serve as the keynote speaker. Today, he serves as Vice Chair of the NAPF’s Board of Directors. Hughes, as well as Jean Holsten, La Casa de Maria Executive Director, will also deliver remarks.

Per tradition, music will be provided by Bob Nyosui Sedivy, a komusō monk who plays the shakuhachi, a traditional Japanese flute. Original songs will also be performed by singer-songwriter Hal Maynard and NAPF Director of Communications Sandy Jones.

Poetry will round out the evening’s program, including readings by former Santa Barbara Poet Laureates Emma Trelles, David Starkey, and Perie Longo, who also serves as Chair of NAPF’s poetry committee. Father Larry Gosselin, a Franciscan priest of the Province of Saint Barbara, will also perform a poem.

Sadako Peace Day is free and open to all. To learn more visit www.wagingpeace.org

La Recepción del Presidente

PAST PRESIDENTES AND DIRECTORS were honored along with 2023 El Presidente David Bolton during a rich and festive gathering at the Santa Barbara Club, the location where Old Spanish Days was organized as a nonprofit after the first Fiesta took place in 1924. Honorary chairs of the event included Rudy Castillo, Sr. and Erik Davis.

El Presidente David Bolton was there to greet revelers and welcome back nearly 20 past presidentes. With Mariachi music in the background followed by fantastic flamenco by Junior Spirit Olivia Nelson, Spirit Jack Harwood, the Maria Bermudez Dance Studio, and Zermeño Dance Academy, hearts were afire and wide smiles abundant.

The meal included courses symbolic of the nations who have had a presence in this area, including the first peoples, the Chumash, as well as Mexico, Spain, and the United States. The program featured the reading of Fiesta themes of years gone by as past presidentes gathered on stage for a photo.

A short live auction was held with auctioneer and master of ceremonies John Palminteri drawing everyone’s attention.

Dancing under the lights and stars followed the formal program. Let’s Fiesta! ¡Viva!

Celebrate the King HarborFiestaRace’s Ties!

WOW! I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE REST OF YOU BUT ALL I CAN SAY IS... WHAT A WEEK! Old Spanish Days not only celebrates a historic and cultural tradition, but serves to highlight Santa Barbara’s sense of community. Whether at the rodeo at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, the parties, the events, or the official Fiesta and Los Niños parades, this time of year is magical – and meaningful. Everyone gets into the spirit and the harbor community is no exception. Well... that is, maybe with just one! Each year the King Harbor Race (which at King Harbor is called the Santa Barbara Race!) ends just short of Fiesta week. Why is that? Inquiring Minds (in this case mine!) want to know...

Soon discovering that the Santa Barbara to King Harbor Race, now celebrating its 50th year, was originally included as an activity during Santa Barbara’s Old Spanish Days wasn’t a surprise, in fact, it made sense. After all, Santa Barbara is a coastal town and a natural venue for Fiesta fun on the water. But... times were different in the 1970s when Santa Barbara was smaller, fewer people came for Fiesta, and the parade wasn’t as renowned as it is today. The King Harbor Race was actually created to draw visitors to the city with a challenging long distance regatta. As Fiesta activities increased over the years, drawing visitors in droves, the expanded Fiesta parade forced street closures limiting access to the harbor. The King Harbor Race start was pushed forward a week, close enough to Fiesta not to lose its connection to the festivities.

The present 2023 King Harbor Race has grown to 80

plus entries in ten sailing classes. This year competitors arrived from California yacht clubs all over the State, along with several non-locals. Wind and course depending, this offshore 81 nautical mile race can last from a few hours to over 24. I don’t know about you, but to me that would take one hardy gang of motivated sailors and a lotta Red Bull! Nonetheless it was indeed a beautiful sight as this year’s competitors set sail toward the horizon. True to its Fiesta roots however, the fun before and after the race remains a huge attraction.

The 2023 Santa Barbara Yacht Club Race Chair Rob Miller, assisted by Race Director Brad Schaupeter, worked hard to prepare for the King Harbor Race activities aided by SBYC volunteers. In advance of the Friday race, Thursday night’s welcoming party offered a yummy BBQ accompanied by a live band and lots of libations! Santa Barbara mayor Randy Rowse – a sailor himself and a SBYC member – welcomed the crowd.

“This year is the 50th celebration of this extraordinary long distance race which had its roots right here in Santa Barbara,” said Rowse. “As mayor and an SBYC member, I welcome all you courageous competitors from up and down the coast of California to this beautiful harbor. And in keeping with the season...Viva la Fiesta!”

Before the noon start of the race the next day a hardy breakfast was served, also a long time tradition. On the subject of tradition, it’s important to mention SBYC Staff Commodore Stan Darrow, Sr., who conceived and mounted the race now celebrating its 50th year! How about that?

The SBYC was represented by nine boats with five finishing despite languishing winds. During the closing festivities hosted

by the King Harbor Yacht Club, trophies were awarded to Santa Barbara sailors: First Place in Class was awarded to Dirk Freeland in Full Send, Second in Class was awarded to two competitors, Kenny Kieding and John Vincent in Argo 4 and Tom Bollay in Armida, with Third in Class going to Vance Newell in Epic. I’d say that race is still a part of Fiesta …. only one week early and celebrated offshore!

Fiesta Mercados Pop Up Across Town

MONDAY, JULY 31ST: Santa Barbara’s historic downtown De la Guerra Plaza is about to be converted into Mercado De la Guerra for Old Spanish Days beginning Wednesday. Thousands will come out for food, music, and dancing day and night at the 99th Fiesta.

The new Mercado de la Playa in Santa Barbara will help to create two choices for those looking for fun, food, and entertainment during the 99th Old Spanish Days. 30 free shows have been scheduled at this mercado and the Mercado de la Guerra. The rides have just arrived at the Mercado at the beach at Santa Barbara City College.

SB City Council Considers State Street

Underpass Redesign Project

TUESDAY, AUGUST 1ST: The Santa Barbara City Council is considering an estimated $11 million project that would change the State St. underpass with wider sidewalks, wider bike lanes, and reduce the street from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction.

It would also add more artistic designs and lighting. In recent years there’s been an effort to create a more appealing gateway between the beach area and Funk Zone to downtown. Public review hearings have been held before these designs were created.

O’Malley’s Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Elubia Orozco will be operating two of her Elubia’s kitchen sites at both the Mercado de la Playa and at Mercado de la Guerra. She just won the Latino Business Awards Woman Business of the Year.

Local Law Enforcement Updates

SUNDAY, JULY 30TH: Celebrating 35 years as a neighborhood bar in the heart of State St. in Santa Barbara, O’Malley’s had a special party Sunday afternoon. Officially it opened Aug. 3, 1988. With Fiesta this week, the special party was held earlier with food, drink specials, and good friends.

FRIDAY, JULY 28TH: There was a close call at the Santa Barbara Courthouse when a man was able to scale the fountain side of the historic building and make his way to a mid-level ledge. He yelled a variety of comments but eventually cooperated with

police department’s Crisis Negotiations Response Team and firefighters to come down by way of the ladder truck. The first responders say their number one concern was to get him a medical evaluation and any additional help. If you or someone you know needs mental health support, dial 988 or visit www.988lifeline.org any time of day.

MONDAY, JULY 31ST: Escape stopped at the Santa Barbara main jail Monday night. There was a swift response by custody deputies to track down and locate inmates who never got off the property but got past one level of security.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 1ST: Four vehicle crash. Hwy 101 SB at upper State St. All lanes initially closed by vehicles or debris. CHP and Santa Barbara City Fire on it.

Jean Luc Godard’s

Contempt & Other Compelling

French Films


at the Riviera Theatre this summer when the Santa Barbara International Film Festival screened 1963's Contempt and during the reinvigorated French Film pop-up festival known as “The Wave,” July 14th through 20th. These screenings drew a variety of moviegoers seeking more character-based stories, an antidote to the typical blockbusters released by contemporary corporate Hollywood. Films both wistful and reflective – offered a retreat filled with thoughtful themes that are not easy to forget – a strong bulwark against the onslaught of both Barbie and Oppenheimer, currently drawing large audiences across the land.

Shot in specific and unusual locations in Italy, including deep within Rome’s large studio lot, Cinecittà Studios, shown in a dilapidated weed-infested state (revealing one of the film’s themes), and at breathtaking locations on the island of Capri, Contempt shows off the unforgettable style of the early sixties. The film follows a financially needy scriptwriter, Paul, played by Michel Piccoli, in an attempt to rescue and make sense of a runaway commercial film of Homer’s Odyssey, fictionally directed by real-life director Fritz Lang. The film within a film approach uses philosophical quotes from Homer’s classic, alluding to an overlyintellectual movie production. An ambitious producer, Jeremy Prokosch, played by a young, stylish Jack Palance, wants to insert nude scenes and dialogue to bring sense to the project.

Bridget Bardot plays Camille, the heroine and victim of Contempt, beset by multiple betrayals by a weak husband, the screenwriter Paul. Bardot was at the height of her fame, youth, and appeal as a voluptuous international star, the “it” girl of her day. She plays the lead in Godard’s 1963 New Wave classic credibly, probably the best film role in her long career. Bardot’s casting swallowed half the available budget at the time, after Godard had previously sought other star cast members who avoided the controversial project.

Partly a relationship drama and a subversive critique of the Hollywood industry, the film looks at betrayal and the deadly consequences.

Opposite Bardot, French character actor Michel Piccoli provides a portrayal of a hapless shell of a writer, who offers his wife to the wolfish studio executive, played by Palance, menacing in every scene. The spectacular locations in Capri are also threatening, offering viewers a rarefied real-life location at the edge of a sea cliff, a lonely outcrop, and a wind-swept mansion (Casa Malaparte on Capri) that the main characters, as well as the film crew, had to negotiate. It is as if the unique to the seaside location is at least equal to the menace of the Palance character, creating a threatening atmosphere of lurking danger and perilous consequences.

Contempt contains softly shot sex scenes which echo some of the love-making scenes in Bertolucci’s Last Tango in Paris from 1973. An extended scene between the couple, well played by Bardot and Piccoli, shows a degrading relationship within the choppy pace of a ground-breaking continuous shot, bringing to mind the masterful newspaper scene in Orson Welles’ masterpiece, Citizen Kane. The themes are unforgettable, the behavior is outrageous, and the film’s visual rewards are many.

The Riviera has extended the run of Contempt, being screened at a few art houses across the USA, due to a recent restoration in 4K.

The Wave Breaking attendance records, ‘The Wave’ French Film Festival returned to the Riviera after an absence of

several years. Films were expertly chosen by SBIFF programming staff and included recent award-winning films. Kicking things off with a bright reception at the Belmond El Encanto, the week was filled with characterdriven stories, intriguing for the local and smart film audiences.

One of the highlights of the festival was Revoir Paris, featuring a César award-winning performance from perennial French actress Virginie Efira. Alice Winocour’s film was honestly and dramatically conceived and written. The filmmaker’s story follows the perspective of a mass-shooting survivor and her quest to heal. The film had captivating scene-by-scene dramatic moments, and the lead actress Efira has never been better, along with the credible supporting cast. It was filmed on location within the urban haunts of contemporary Paris to foment an indelible atmosphere.

Other noteworthy films included the appealing magical realism of a historical romantic drama, Scarlet, directed and written by Pietro Marcello, as well as the drama within a comedy, Diary of a Fleeting Affair from writer-director Emmanuel Mouret. The film looks at modern relationships and examines unmet expectations, sex fantasies, and sobering limitations between couples. The film features outstanding performances from both screen veterans Sanndrine Kiberlain and Vincent Macaigne.

Mikhaël Hers’ gentle film The Passengers of the Night featured another superlative performance from French-English actress Charlotte Gainsbourg in a female identity storyline with the main character emerging triumphant at the conclusion. The riveting The Night of the 12th was exciting to watch. It's a taut crime mystery written by Giles Marchand and Dominik Moll, and directed by Moll. The film won a treasure trove of César awards that were well-deserved. Pacifiction, written and directed by Albert Serra, featured amazing locations of the seedy side of Tahiti, with ambiguous characters constantly attempting to deceive one another. The film’s strong point was the cinematography, the locations, and the stylish performance from actor Benoît Magime as the manipulative High Commisioner of French Polynesia.

The festival was sponsored by many community partners including VOICE Magazine, a worthwhile exploration of French cinema. Audiences were happy that this festival was back in full force.

What is Bidenomics?

Experience you can count on!


(805) 682-4304




‘BIDENOMICS,’ now being touted by a growing consensus of economists, is explained in the recent resurgence of construction spending, as portrayed in the FRED graph.

Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, among others, has been touting the strength of the post-pandemic economic recovery, which is being called ‘Bidenomics’ in a play on words to compare it to Reaganomics, the 1980s recovery from the 1970’s era of stagflation and double-digit inflation.

Reagan decreed that government was the problem, so it financed its recovery with tax cuts that inflated the first substantial federal debt since World War II.

Bidenomics is being financed with tax receipts, private investment, and some increased taxes, but without tax cuts. So, it must pay for itself, and governmentfunded programs are providing the incentives.

Economic VOICE

“The economy’s resilience in the face of rate hikes suggests that overall demand has been stronger than anyone expected — possibly in part because Biden administration policies appear to have unleashed a huge wave of manufacturing investment,” said Krugman in a New York Times Op-ed.

The big difference between the two eras is government’s role. President

President Joe Biden’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has become a part of the domestic economy, “driving a boom in large-scale infrastructure,” wrote Ellen Zentner, chief U.S. economist for Morgan Stanley, in a research note out last week cited by MarketWatch.

As a result, Morgan Stanley now projects 1.9 percent economic expansion in the first half of this year. That’s nearly four times the bank’s previous 0.5 percent forecast for growth in gross domestic product in the first half of 2023.

Some $1 trillion in infrastructure spending signed into law in 2021 marked an early legislative win for a president handed only a

slim majority in Congress upon his election over then-incumbent Republican Donald Trump in November 2020.

It was followed up by another legislative banner for Biden: the Inflation Reduction Act, a climatechange and healthcare-focused spending bill signed into law about a year ago. Many of the incentives in the laws are tied to domestic manufacturing and a reason manufacturing activity is beginning to expand again after a period of contraction, per the S&P U.S. manufacturing-sector index that rose to 49 from 46.3 in July, but has been negative for months.

Soon the first estimate of second quarter GDP growth will be released by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Research (BEA). The consensus is 2.0 percent GDP growth, the midrange of most predictions.

The Atlanta Fed’s latest GDPNow estimate of second quarter GDP growth by Blue Chip economists is 2.4 percent.

Construction spending in manufacturing is soaring, up 76 percent YoY and helping to boost employment, traditionally with higher-paying jobs. So Bidenomics is a win-win solution for both continued economic growth and keeping workers fully employed.

Tree-of-the-Month, July 2023

Santa Cruz Island Ironwood

Lyonothamnus floribundus ssp. aspleniifolius

IRONWOOD is a rare tree species that once grew in vast areas of California and the American Southwest. However, its range was drastically reduced over the course of the last six million years by geologic and climatic changes that resulted in the uplift of our coastal mountains and the drying of the interior lands to the east - changes to which it could not adapt. Consequently, it now is endemic to a remarkably small area – just three of the Channel Islands off our coast: Santa Cruz Island, Santa Rosa Island, and San Clemente Island.

It has also declined in genetic variance. There is now only one species (Lyonothamnus floribundus) - and of that species only two subspecies exist, the Santa Cruz Island Ironwood (ssp. aspleniifolius) and the Catalina Ironwood (ssp. floribundus).

Even though it was introduced as early as 1900 into Santa Barbara by the pioneering horticulturist Dr. Francesco Franceschi, who recommended it as an ornamental tree for its spectacular flora display and graceful foliage, Santa Cruz Island Ironwood has been infrequently planted in our local landscapes.

Nonetheless, this lovely native tree has been appreciated and recognized by our community over the years. In 1935, it was designated by the Board of Supervisors as the official tree of Santa Barbara County. The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden features it in its logo - and chose its name for its biannual magazine, Ironwood

In its island habitat, Santa Cruz Island

Ironwood is often found in either shrub form (with short multiple stems) or in tree form (with a low crown dwarfed by windy conditions). In landscape cultivation, it is a medium- to fastgrowing tree, depending on growing conditions. It can reach a height of 25 to 50 feet tall and a spread of 15 to 20 feet wide. It usually has a straight single trunk but frequently develops basil shoots that can become multiple trunks.

Its canopy is dense when young, becoming more open with age. The foliage consists of fern-like pinnately-compound leaves (4- to 8-inches long), each with two to nine leaflets (2- to 4½-inches long and

½-inch wide). The deep green leaflets are lobed into many segments that resemble those on the spleenwort fern (Asplenium). These fern-like leaves give the tree one of its most distinctive ornamental qualities - and provide the derivation for both its subspecies name and its other common name, “Fern-leaf Ironwood.”

The stunning flower clusters make this tree a real standout in the spring. The individual flowers are white and small (¼-inch wide) but emerge at the ends of branches in flat-topped panicles that contain hundreds of flowers. When in full bloom, they give the tree a luminous glow. Each flower is “perfect,” meaning it contains both female parts and male parts. The nectar is eagerly enjoyed by native and domesticated bees and by other pollinators.

Pollinated flowers produce fruits that consist of two small follicles (¼-inch long) that are brown and woody with a persistent calyx (flower base). Each fruit follicle contains four tiny seeds that are disbursed in the autumn when the follicles ripen, dry, and open, allowing the seeds to fall. The spent fruit clusters, often considered unattractive, persist for some time –or are easily pruned off.

Another distinguishing feature is the graybrown outer bark – this peels off in long thin strips to reveal the crimson red color of the inner bark.

Santa Cruz Island Ironwood can be somewhat difficult to grow, due to its sensitivity to heavy, poorly drained soils. It develops best in locations with sandy loam soil and the influence of coastal moisture. It can do well in full sun to partial shade. When established, it is quite drought-tolerant but appreciates intermittent deep watering during very dry periods. It is cold-hardy to 15 degrees F. It can be grown as a single specimen - but looks better in a grouping or grove, because of its open growth habit at maturity.

Propagation was once considered difficult from seeds collected on the islands, since the trees there are confined to clonal or genetically identical groves. Therefore, the first nursery stocks were propagated from stump sprouts. Now that seeds are collected from cross-pollinated trees grown on the mainland, almost all

Ironwoods are propagated using seeds.

The common name most frequently used for this tree, “Ironwood,” refers to its wood, which is remarkably hard. It has a fine grain and a distinctive red color with a yellow tint; consequently, it is highly prized by wood turners and sculptors for use in wood crafts and artistic objects. Its limited availability reduces its larger scale commercial use – and increases its price.

As noted above, Santa Cruz Island Ironwood’s additional common name, “Fernleaf Ironwood,” refers to its delicate fern-like foliage. The other subspecies, “Catalina Ironwood,” which is endemic to Santa Catalina Island, bears simple, entire (non-segmented), smooth-edged leaves - this feature distinguishes it from its subspecies relative.

The Santa Cruz Island Ironwood’s botanical name is Lyonothamnus floribundus ssp. aspleniifolius. The first part of the genus name, Lyonothamnus, honors William Scrugham Lyon (1851-1916), a Los Angeles area nurseryman who collected Ironwood specimens on Santa Catalina Island in 1884 and sent them to the famous American botanist Asa Gray who then named the species. The second part of the genus name, thamnus, comes from the Greek word,

thamnos, meaning “shrub.” The specific epithet, floribundus, is Latin and means “freely flowering.” The subspecies name, aspleniifolius, means “leaves like the Asplenium fern.”

Ironwood’s primary value is for use as an ornamental tree - it makes a lovely addition to any local private garden or larger landscape. Being a tree native to our area, it is certainly well-adapted to our climate. It makes an outstanding low-maintenance tree, if given the appropriate soil conditions. It is perfect to include in a garden of California native plants designed for drought tolerance and wildlife habitat. It really should be planted more extensively in our area.

Santa Cruz Island Ironwoods can be seen in several locations about town: at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (at the entrance and in front of the library); on the north side of Shoreline Drive (just below Shoreline Park); in the 500 block of W. Carrillo Street (north side); and, on Highway 101 (at the Patterson Avenue northbound offramp and on the west side of the Ward Memorial (Hwy 217) offramp).

To Feast on Clouds and Surfacing,

Expressions of Hope & Joy

PAPER may be Holli Harmon’s crown jewel. Each one features a month of the year reproduced from a 1866 Farmer’s Almanac, when hand labor began to be replaced with machine farming. Each piece, inspired by her sketchbook, represents a month of the year at the Jalama Canyon Ranch, floating over deep blue cyanotype prints made using autochthonous vegetation. Incidentally, the cyanotype process was invented in 1842.

These layered works are the result of the White Buffalo Land Trust pilot Artist-in-Residence Program (which officially launches next year). “I found that regenerative agriculture really offers the world a practical hope to reverse global warming,” says Harmon. “What if we have farming practices that leave the Earth in a healthy state?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if while we are growing food to feed ourselves we could heal the planet? I want to lean into hope when I find it. All of the work here is an expression of my hope.”

The 89 Cloud Project consists of 89 cloudscape oil paintings on vintage ware, each titled after a line of Mark Strand’s 89 Cloud poem, reminding us “that water is essential for the food we consume.”

You can tell Harmon had a good time creating these. “31. A wild cloud should never be ridden” uses the depth of a gravy boat to its advantage, and “82. She was made of ice and I of cloud” scatters the moon and some night clouds into a little round dish.

Harmon says she fell “through a rabbit hole” when researching “cloud science, cloud poetry, agricultural revolutions, and new mediums.”

The four oil and cold wax on panel Cloud Cubes were inspired by poems Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe wrote in 1817 to honor Luke Howard, the young chemist who created the classification of clouds in 1803.

If Holli Harmon’s Clouds express Hope (with a capital H), Nicole

Strasburg’s Surfacing brings out the Joy of her beach walks, which she later transforms into oil paintings on birch panels, with a minimalist approach, interweaving “naturalistic imagery and abstract sensibilities.”

“My process starts outside, absorbing nature through the act of wandering,” explains Strasburg. “In these moments I feel connected to something greater than myself. I return to the studio to reinterpret these impressions through an autobiographical lens. Photographs taken in the field prompt memories, memories influence the translation, and active brushwork builds the fabric of the surfaces, reinterpreting the experience in nature.”

Strasburg welcomes us with a hypnotic triptych, Pulchra Mysterium - Beautiful Mystery, 2023. What at first looks like a simple landscape of orange and blues sucks the viewer in, with its hues of greens and purples and its delicate lines. That’s usually the case with the paintings in this exhibition; their simplicity is misleading, capturing the eye which gets lost in the intricacies of line and color, be it calm oceans or tide pools like Radiant Heat, or foaming waves like You’re Swell. It’s as if Strasburg is inviting us to look deeper, not just into her paintings, but into nature, to take longer when experiencing the beauty that surrounds us, to be present to what she calls “the divine moment.”

Surfacing includes two grids of 12x12” birch panels arranged by Sullivan Goss curator Susan Bush. Although the paintings are available individually, they work well together, just like Harmon’s 89 Clouds

Strasburg and Harmon are good friends, and they have co-curated two shows for the Wildling Museum of Art & Nature in Solvang. Their art is a reflection of their joy and hope, which is contagious. I challenge you to visit the gallery and not crack a smile.

The two shows (as well as the multi-artist exhibit Summer Fling, are on view through September 25th, with an opening reception during 1st Thursday, August 3rd, from 5 to 8pm.

Roman Emperor Hidden In A Sewage Pipe

d’Avenches Archives, Etat de Vaud

IN THE FORTY-FIVE YEARS that I’ve been living in Los Angeles, I’ve probably visited the Getty Villa more than 100 times. Its treasure trove of Greek and Roman antiquities brings happy memories of my youth when I studied Greek and Roman history while living in St. Petersburg. The current exhibition at The Getty Villa, The Gold Emperor from Aventicum, with a nearly life-sized gold bust of the emperor Marcus Aurelius transported me not only through the second century AD when Marcus Aurelius ruled in AD 161–180, but also sparked my memory of participating in an archeological excavation in the Crimean Peninsula during the 1960s. Digging through layers of earth and remnants of an ancient Greek settlement, I discovered an amazing bronze ring with a carved stone. Now, this artifact is part of The Hermitage Collection.

In 1939, this gold bust of the Roman Emperor, weighing 3.5 pounds, was found hidden in a sewage pipe during an archeological excavation at Aventicum (present-day Avenches, Switzerland) ), an ancient Roman city built on an earlier Celtic settlement. This hallow gold bust of the Emperor hammered from a single sheet of metal sheds light on the wealth and power of the Roman Empire in Northern Europe. Take a look at the photo of the man holding the gold bust as he removes it from an ancient sewer and try not to dream about you being there in the sewer holding this emperor portrait in your own hands.

The Getty Villa exhibition, The Gold Emperor from Aventicum, runs through January 2024.

LOS ANGELES AND AUSTIN-BASED ARTIST, GREG MILLER (b. 1951) has a solo exhibition at William Turner Gallery. The exhibition title, Once Upon a Time, makes you think about the glamour and illusion of Hollywood. Miller’s acrylic and collage paintings create cheerful visual noises with their reference to billboards, pulp fiction, comic books, and cinema marquees. Staring at the phantasmagorical stories of Miller’s paintings is a journey through Post-WWII American culture. It is difficult to decide which of the close-ups in his paintings seduces you more—the gleaming headlight of the Porsche or the tempting black and white photographic image of the Hollywood beauty staring at us. Approaching the paintings, you discover that what initially appeared to be a photo is actually an image meticulously rendered with spray paint.

Walking through William Turner Gallery exploring Miller’s nostalgic references to American popular culture, I found myself dreaming about drive-in movie theaters, speeding on freeways, and enjoying smoking and drinking…

The exhibition runs through August 12th.

RECEIVING THE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE MOSKOWITZ BAYSE GALLERY about its exhibition, Sculpture Into Photography, I was intrigued how these two mediums would intersect. The exhibition features works by 15 artists working across both mediums transforming “a photograph from a reproducible medium into a unique or singular object.” The exhibition poses the question, “Where does a photograph end and where does an object begin, and vice versa?” I have to admit that I couldn’t resist touching some of the photo/sculptures not only with my eyes, but with my fingers. Guilty as charged.

A photograph by Matthew Brandt, David 2F (2020—22), particularly intrigued me with its reference to the famous Michelangelo sculpture. It shows fragments of the marble replica of Michelangelo’s David that was made for Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles where in 2020, it fell to pieces. Another surprise of combining sculpture and photography is that this photo is printed on paper covered with marble dust from the fallen statue. This smart and challenging show at Moskowitz Bayse Gallery is definitely not to be missed.

The exhibition runs through August 19th.
