STAR POWER AND SILVER SCREENS will soon illuminate the Arlington Theatre and downtown Santa Barbara when the Santa Barbara International Film Festival returns February 8th to 18th. Back for its 38th year, anticipation reached new heights on January 18th as SBIFF unveiled its 2023 poster and its full schedule of films, industry panels, and celebrity tributes at Sullivan Goss.

With 43 countries represented, including 52 world premieres and 78 U.S. premieres, the 2023 SBIFF will unite film lovers, actors, and filmmakers in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Highlights will include SBIFF’s first International Feature panel, as well as celebrity tributes to Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Angela Bassett, Brendan Fraser, and more.

Chidlaw’s 2023 poster speaks to her decades-long career painting urban settings, drawing intense beauty from scenes of reality.

“When asked what kind of paintings I make, I usually call my work ‘Urban Landscapes’ to distinguish them as paintings about areas of human habitation rather than landscapes that reference the natural world,” explains Chidlaw in her artist statement. “While I often treat older architectural forms, I want to make it clear these are not paintings about nostalgia – all are contemporary scenes, recently observed.”

The 38th SBIFF will kick off at the Arlington Theatre on Wednesday, February 8th with the Opening Night World Premiere screening of Miranda’s Victim. Starring Abigail Breslin, Luke Wilson, and Donald Sutherland, and directed by Michelle Danner, the film recounts the story of Patricia Weir, who was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by Ernesto Miranda in 1963 — resulting in the creation of America’s Miranda Warning laws.

The festival will close on Saturday, February 18th at the Arlington Theatre with the U.S. Premiere of I Like Movies. Directed by Chandler Levack and starring Isaiah Lehtinen, this comedy-drama follows an awkward 17-year-old movie buff who begins working at a 2000s video store. Complications arise as he develops a friendship with his older, female manager.

“At a time where there's a dwindling of movie theater attendance, the role of film festivals has never been more important,” said SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling in a statement. “At SBIFF, with the 38th edition, our marching orders are clear, to celebrate movies and to nurture and exalt the film community, the artists as well as the cinephiles. It's a great slate...”


“I feel like it will be really edifying, enlightening, and entertaining — the three ‘E’s!’” commented SBIFF Programming Director Claudia Puig on the diversity of the 2023 film lineup.

Local artist Patricia Chidlaw created the 2023 SBIFF poster, depicting the festival’s central gathering point, the historic Arlington Theatre, from the vantage point of the Granada Theatre’s parking lot. A UC Santa Barbara alumna, she has exhibited her work throughout Southern California and is regularly featured in Sullivan Goss. The gallery is currently displaying the SBIFF poster painting, as well as two others that were considered.

Beyond film screenings, SBIFF will offer community members the chance to hear filmmaking experts discuss their craft in a variety of industry panels, including producers, writers, animators, and the first international feature panel. Celebrity tributes will honor actors who have delivered 2022’s most memorable and culturally significant performances.

The approximately 200 films to be screened represent a diverse cross-section of the filmmaking world, in both countries represented and themes explored.

SB High School Students Win Congressional Challenge

CHRISTIAN SANCHEZ AND ANTONIO AYALA, Santa Barbara High School students, won the Congressional App Challenge with the creation of their app, One Connected. Members of the SBHS Computer Science Academy, Sanchez, a senior, and Ayala, a sophomore, addressed the two-pronged issue of forming a digital community with an anti-cyberbullying approach.

“We are so proud of our students. Christian and Antonio not only developed a useful app for Santa Barbara High School, but they also did it while ensuring their work is inclusive for everyone,” said Principal Elise Simmons.

The group’s focus this year is to increase the sense of belonging, safety, and community for all students at SBHS.

One Connected is a platform for students to easily discover and safely join extracurriculars such as clubs or organizations by browsing through the school’s directory. In addition, One Connected has moderated communications that allow for safe messaging.

The pair were honored by Congressman Salud Carbajal who discussed with them their app’s positive impacts and its potential. Additionally, One Connected is eligible to be featured in the U.S. Capitol Building, and posted on www.whitehouse.gov

Santa Barbara Harbor Entrance Blocked by Storm Sediment

AFTER DRYING OFF FROM LAST WEEK’S DOWNPOUR in Santa Barbara County and the coast of California, Mother Nature’s over-sharing is still in the recovery stage. She continues to bless and bruise us equally: creeks and streets overflowed as Lake Cachuma neared 100 percent capacity, tides overpowered barriers as enthusiastic surfers rode unimaginably huge waves …. need I go on?

The waterfront and harbor managed to survive major damage other than minor inconveniences. Stearns Wharf held up nicely, most likely the reason it has reached the advanced age of 150 years plus. Businesses along the waterfront area were open with the exception of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, which is presently in a state of disrepair as the result of sand berms being washed away by the overpowering swells.

The biggest impact of last week’s storm surge was to

the entrance to the harbor. In a short period of 48 hours, approximately a couple of year’s worth of sediment moved into the harbor’s entrance making it too shallow for boats to safely navigate into the channel. A few vessels managed on a high tide, but for most it was essentially nonnavigable.

“The harbor entrance is still open, but it is to be used at a mariners own risk,” Mike Wiltshire, the Waterfront Department Director stated. “The Harbor Patrol has been providing escorts through the channel and can be contacted at the office or on marine radio.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is currently on-site and will be performing an emergency dredging operation starting this week. They should have the channel back to passable depths by the end of this week or early next week.”

The accumulation of sediment at the bottom of Santa Barbara Harbor began as early as the 1920s. The federal government began a vital annual dredging project of the harbor in 1972: a contract was awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the harbor two times a year.

Regular maintenance dredging keeps the channel at the desired depth for safe navigation.

About 720,000 cubic yards of dredged material is transferred down the coast for beach replenishment services within East Beach. This week’s emergency dredging is different - instead of moving all the sediment directly to East Beach, it will be temporarily discharged on West Beach to be moved later.

The Waterfront Department is busily working to insure the safety of the entire harbor and waterfront area. Caution continues to be recommended in anticipation of further storms that might be making their way to our shores. Although more charitable weather is expected for the week, excising a hefty degree of awareness out of respect for Mother Nature’s unpredictable whims might be the prudent thing to do. And do stay tuned...

The Women Starring in Holy Spider & Corsage

RIVIERA AUDIENCES were treated to a double-header weekend of Cinema Society screenings with two films based-on-real-life narrative features spotlighting two powerful female actors. Zar Amir-Ebrahimi played a journalist in the Iran-set thriller Holy Spider and the historical drama, Marie Kreutzer's Corsage, starred Vicky Krieps, who was excellent in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, and indelible in the Mia Hansen-Løve dramatic feature Bergman’s Island from last year.

Zar Amir-Ebrahimi, the Iranian-born star of Holy Spider was threatened by the Iranian government and had to relocate to Paris, France in 2008. Starting her interesting career over from scratch, she acted in plays, appeared in television documentaries produced by the BBC, and did voice-overs for an animated television series titled 50 Shades of Greek, and then caught a big break by appearing in Ali Abbasi’s Holy Spider. The Iran government has since has issued threats to punish all those who worked on the film, since it was a clearsighted, unflinching illustration of the cruelty of Iranian government policies, now resonating globally with the crackdown on protests of how women are treated in an unapologetic patriarchal system of oppression. Since the film has received widespread attention, Amir-Ebrahimi has received hundreds of threats. She was named on the BBC’s 100 Women as one of the most influential women of 2022.

Amir-Ebrahimi is unflinching in her portrayal, and the camera captures her at close-up range throughout her centered performance. Based on a true story, the film is set in Mashhad, a holy city in central Iran. Authentic, riveting, and dynamic, her portrayal shows a wide range of expression, from fear to courageous resistance and ultimately to untethered joy, and is easily one of the best female performances from last year’s cinema season. She deservedly won the Best Actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last May, and the film has slowly been released in the USA since late October.

Not short of accomplishments or career controversy, considering her experience and exile from Iran, Amir-Ebrahimi sat down for an interview with SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling where she recollected, “Our movie was a fight for women’s rights, where all of us can live freely without being part of a misogynist society.” She continued, “I was able to bring my own weakness and experiences to the part, I am lucky to be an actress, it’s a special movie where we could show how women suffer.”

Of her work with the director she mentioned, “The director likes to break rules, and on the set we were free to improvise, the camera was following us. In the last few months people are

seeing the violence in Iran, and our movie is kind of a mirror to Iranian society... I think we created a message of hope, seeing women not as victims but as human beings.”

Holy Spider was featured at the Palm Springs Film Festival, and has been shortlisted for Oscar consideration. Her next project is playing the title role in Shayda, directed by Tehranborn short film director Noora Niasari and executive produced by the award-winning actor Cate Blanchett, which will premiere at this month’s Sundance Film Festival.

Corsage featured a subtle and remarkably eccentric performance from Vicky Krieps. The core story reimagines the life of the famed beauty of the Austrian royal court, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Based on a suggestion from Krieps to tell a different story of the Empress (popularly known as “Sissi” in Austria), director Marie Kreutzer wrote a script for Krieps. The film takes us to fascinating locations in Austria, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, and Italy.

Specific settings included the Hofburg and Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, as well as Eckartsau Castle in Lower Austria. The story imaginatively looks at Sissi’s life at age 40 and how she begins to fight the restrictions of the Court surrounding her. Another royal in distress movie, the film’s gem-like flow is due to Kriep’s whimsical performance as well as the extraordinary locations. Krieps portrays the famed Empress as a person struggling with her privileged trappings, caught in a web of conformance and her sly but determined resistance. This is also a story about the perceptions of fading youth within a very patriarchal system and a curious public fascinated with the historical Empress.

Many of the scenes amplify Krieps’ subtly reactive moments where a sly smile might indicate a large shift. For her work in Corsage, Krieps received the Un Certain Regard Best Performance prize at Cannes and she also won Best Actress at the European Film Awards in December.

In a post-screening interview also conducted by Roger Durling, she mentioned that she had to learn many new skills such as ice-swimming! “I had only a month to prepare and every morning I went ice swimming in the Danube, had fencing and Hungarian (language) lessons, and lessons in the manners of the Court,” she shared.

About her experience playing the Empress she revealed, “I feel free in front of the camera, it’s where I feel safest. I had to follow my intuition where my character was both trapped and ahead of her time. She disappears from the expectation of others and just be who she is. The movie is about today, where we are slaves to our own image and what happens when an image of a person becomes bigger than themselves.”

These are the questions Krieps asks in reflecting on her newest film, which is currently playing at the Riviera and in a few art house cinemas around the country.

Santa Barbara Museum of Art Remembers Michael Armand Hammer

THE SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF ART remembers Michael Armand Hammer, who passed away recently. Michael was a generous friend to the Museum, member of the SBMA Board of Trustees from 2011 to 2015, and longtime SBMA Member.

Michael was a major contributor to the exhibition Van Gogh to Munch: European Masterworks from the Armand Hammer Foundation and the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation, presented at the Museum in 2011, which included the four important loans of Impressionist paintings from him and the Hammer International Foundation: Edgar Degas’ Laundress Carrying Linen (1888-1892) and Three Dancers in Yellow Skirts (c. 1891), Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Coastline at Antibes (1888), and Camille Pissarro’s Paysage a Osny, vue de la Ferme (c. 1883). Later, a wonderful painting by Mary Cassatt, Summertime (1894), was lent to the Museum as well.

These paintings were originally acquired by Michael’s grandfather, the industrialist Armand Hammer. Over the last decade, paintings from his personal collection have also resided intermittently in the SBMA galleries as guests of honor. All of these works are currently on view in the Museum’s Ridley-Tree Gallery as testament to the philanthropic legacy of Michael Armand Hammer, to whom SBMA pays tribute in memoriam.

Larry Feinberg, SBMA Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and CEO, states, “Michael was a great, generous, and thoughtful friend of the Museum and to me, personally. The important artwork lent to SBMA over the years much enhanced our display, providing to the community and, especially to local students, the opportunity to see and learn about important 19th-century French artists, including the major Impressionists.

In addition to serving on the SBMA Board of Trustees, Michael also was active on the Buildings & Grounds, Collections, and Development Committees.

The Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour Celebrating 65 Years


HALL on Sunday, January 29th at 7pm, a dynamic group of jazz artists, headlined by two unique and gifted vocalists will be preparing to light up the stage in a UCSB Arts & Lectures presentation of the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour.

Celebrating its 65th year, The Monterey Jazz Festival is one of the world’s longest running, iconic music events, with a musthear, once-in-a-lifetime touring ensemble.

On stage, 2017 NEA Jazz Master, threetime Grammy and Tony award winner, and UN Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater and two-time GRAMMY winner and one of the world’s foremost jazz vocalists Kurt Elling, will scat, swoon, and soar as they

infuse vitality and heart into jazz standards, ballads, bop, and Latin hits. A sparkling band, led by pianist Christian Sands, with risingstar saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Clarence Penn will share the stage.

MJF’s mission is to inspire the discovery and celebration of jazz, anchored by an iconic festival. On Tour, it does just that.

Who’s Who?

Dee Dee Bridgewater

An iconoclast and jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has a style of her own. She has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics.

“The whole thing, I think, as an artist, is being an individual. Being unafraid to stand up and be who you are. I don’t want to be like anybody else! And I don’t want somebody to be like me, or try to be like me! I’m really a supporter of people finding their own, unique voice and emphasizing their uniqueness. That’s what makes it interesting,” she shared in an inteview with Grammy.com’s Morgan Enos in 2022.

Along the way she has starred in musicals on Broadway and London’s West End to great acclaim as well as recently winning the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee (her second Grammy).

She has performed with jazz icons including Thad Jones/Mel Louis Big Band, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, and others. In 2017 she was awarded a NEA Jazz Master Fellowship. Bridgewater has performed at MJF six times since 1973.

Bridgewater also started a non-profit program, The Woodshed Network, for self-identifying women in jazz.

“I’m really about trying to lift the image of women in jazz, but not in a way that I’m going to hit people over the head. I’m just trying to push forward with myself without making a lot of noise. I’m just trying to do the things I do — the things I believe in — and I’m really trying to champion women. They need championing. I think I’m at a place in my career where no matter who I work with, I always want to provide a platform for any musicians that work with me,” she added in the Enos interview.

Kurt Elling

Known for his robust swing, warm rich baritone, and poetic insight, two-time Grammy winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among

the world’s foremost jazz vocalists.

1997–2000 National Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky declared of him, “In Kurt Elling’s art, the voice of jazz gives new spiritual presence to the ancient, sweet, and powerful bond between poetry and music.” That depth is reflected in his decades-long appeal.

With a four octave range in the service of his virtuosic improvisational skills, Elling has become a compelling story jazz teller.

Many of his words rise from poetry. One of his inspirations are the poems of Rilke, which speak to the heart of the human experience. In an interview with Lee Mergner in JazzTimes.com Elling related, “I have been going down my road of inquiry and searching. I realized that I am actually living through what Rainer Maria Rilke subscribed, which was to try to live the questions and be humble in the face of all that can’t be understood or articulated. That is so much propulsion for me, from my natural befuddlement at life.”

He continued, “The piece [by Rilke] that comes to mind, and I’m paraphrasing now: ‘Don’t look for the answers to these big questions. Instead, try to live the questions themselves as though they are a great treasure in a room that is forever locked. Live the questions and perhaps, someday, if you give enough dedication and attention to them, you may live your way into an answer.’ That sounds very wise and beautiful to me. It’s appropriately humble for a human being.”

Over his 25-year career of touring and recording, Elling has won three French Prix du Jazz Vocal awards, two German Echo Awards, two Dutch Edison Awards, and has been nominated for 15 Grammys.

Elling had a 14-year run topping the DownBeat Critics and Readers polls and has won 12 Jazz Journalists Awards for “Male Vocalist of the Year.”

Elling has performed at MJF six times, including acting as Artist-in-Residence in 2006 and was the vocalist in the MJF on Tour All-Stars in 2009-2010.

Lakecia Benjamin

Voted as the winner of the 2020 DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star Alto Saxophonist and Up and Coming Artist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association, charismatic and dynamic saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin fuses traditional conceptions of jazz, hip-hop, and soul. Benjamin’s electric presence and fiery sax work has shared stages with legendary artists, including Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots, and Macy Gray. Benjamin’s album Pursuance is an intergenerational masterpiece that takes one on a journey through the lineage of the music with the works of John and Alice Coltrane. Her new album, Phoenix, out in late January 2023, features Patrice Rushen, Dianne Reeves, Angela Davis, and Wayne Shorter, and was produced by Terri Lyne Carrington. Benjamin has performed at MJF twice since 2016.

Christian Sands

Washington and received his bachelor’s degree in jazz performance from Berklee College of Music, and an artist diploma from the Juilliard School. He has recorded or performed with Wynton Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Hank Jones, Dave Douglas, Emmet Cohen, and many others, and is a member of the American Patchwork Quartet. As an educator, Nakamura has led master classes and summer intensive courses at Juilliard, The New School, Koyo Conservatory, Osaka Geidai, and Savannah Swing Central. In 2016, Nakamura released his debut album A Lifetime Treasure and his second record, Hometown, received the 2017 Album of the Year award from JazzLife magazine. Nakamura has performed at MJF many times since 2004 and was the bassist in MJF on Tour in 20182019.

Clarence Penn

The charismatic and dynamic Clarence Penn is one of the busiest jazz drummers in the world, a leader of multiple bands, a composer, a prolific producer, and an educator. Penn currently leads several ensembles and is a member of the American Patchwork Quartet. His most recent “rhythmically intoxicating” recording is 2014’s Monk: The Lost Files on Origin Records.


Pianist and MJF on Tour Music Director Christian Sands is a two-time Grammy nominee. Growing up in New Haven, Connecticut, he started playing professionally at the age of 10 and received his Bachelor of Arts and master’s degrees from the Manhattan School of Music. A protégé of Dr. Billy Taylor, Sands began a six-year association with bassist Christian McBride in 2009, and has followed in Dr. Taylor’s footsteps by encouraging, inspiring, and advocating for the preservation and history of jazz. As Monterey Jazz Festival’s Artist-in-Residence from 2020-2022, Christian launched his online video series Welcome to the Sands Box, interviewing his friends and favorites from the jazz world. Sands’ third recording for Mack Avenue Music Group, Be Water, captures and establishes him as a forceful leader in composition and conceptual vision. Sands has performed at MJF five times since 2014 and acted as MJF on Tour’s musical director in 2018-2019.

Yasushi Nakamura

Bassist Yasushi Nakamura is one of the most commanding voices on bass today. Born in Tokyo, Nakamura moved to Seattle,

Since 1991, when he arrived in New York City, Penn has placed his unique blend of mega-chops, keen intellect, and heady musicianship at the service of a staggering array of A-list artists. A chronological shortlist includes Ellis and Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter, Stanley Clarke, Steps Ahead, Makoto Ozone, Michael Brecker, Dave Douglas, Maria Schneider, Luciana Souza, Richard Galliano, and Fourplay. Penn’s discography includes several hundred studio albums (including the Grammywinning recordings 34th and Lex by Randy Brecker and Concert in the Garden and Sky Blue by Maria Schneider.) Penn recently joined the University of Central Florida Department of Music as an assistant professor of jazz percussion, having previously taught with the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music, the Stanford Jazz Workshop, the Saint Louis College of Music in Rome, Italy, and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Intensive Jazz Institute. Penn has performed at MJF multiple times since 1992.

Bringing Back the Garden

Joyce DiDonato at The Granada

“EDEN is an invitation to return to our roots and to explore whether or not we are connecting as profoundly as we can to the pure essence of our being, to create a new EDEN from within and plant seeds of hope for the future,” DiDonato shared in with the Princeton Town Topics earlier this month.

Climate change is a pertinent issue with the potential for vast consequences if change is not made. Spurred in part

by the dissolution of the connection that people have to their surroundings, EDEN seeks to remind people of these connections and to revitalize them.

DiDonato’s art stands steadfast in its commitment to bringing about the dawn of a new, living world, and to remind her audiences that they are just as much part of the world as the seeds they plant.


CONNECTING THE BIBLICAL, IDYLLIC DAWN OF HUMANKIND, four centuries of classical music, and solarpunk environmental sentiments in a single performance is no small artistic endeavor. EDEN, the Grammynominated latest creation by worldrenowned mezzo-soprano singer, Joyce DiDonato, does just that. She reaches towards contemporary audiences to inspire them to seek the sublime and find the beauty in the natural world around them. Commissioned by UCSB Arts & Lectures, DiDonato takes stage at The Granada Theatre at 7pm on Tuesday, January 24th.

"Arts & Lectures is thrilled to be a co-commissioner on EDEN, Joyce DiDonato's spectacular new eveninglength celebration of the muse of nature and its impact on four centuries of music," shared Celesta M. Billeci, the Miller McCune Executive Director of Arts & Lectures.

I want to meet the audience where they are. It’s not dumbing down; it’s recognizing the cultural context that the majority of audience members bring into a theater with them today.

— Joyce DiDonato

In this impressive undertaking, DiDonato is set to traverse five inhabited continents performing at 45 concert halls, and will engage local communities by inviting children’s choirs to perform

the finale alongside her, including Santa Barbara’s very own Sing! children’s choir. As a member of the International Artists Teaching Collaborative, one of DiDonato’s goals with incorporating youth into her performance is to teach them to use their voices to understand how they connect with nature and how their voices matter.

“The presence of Sing!, the youth choir of the Music Academy, is sure to bring youthful joy to what will undoubtedly be a memorable experience at the Granada,” added Billeci.

EDEN is more than just a vocal concert, however. DiDonato acknowledges that even amongst audience members who are versed in classical music, there is a wide array of additional influences, contexts, and media knowledge that they bring into a show with them. To DiDonato, accounting for these narratives is an essential part of the EDEN experience.

“I want to meet the audience where they are. It’s not dumbing down; it’s recognizing the cultural context that the majority of audience members bring into a theater with them today,” said DiDonato to the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this month.

In addition to meeting what audiences bring into the performance with them, EDEN prompts viewer action after they leave the show. Audience members will receive seeds to plant, creating a direct connection from DiDonato and EDEN to new life emerging all over the world. Presented with songs arranged by theme and feeling rather than chronology, EDEN evokes a feeling of timelessness. In this, DiDonato shows listeners that these feelings of hope and optimism that she is trying to instill are not new or novel experiences, but rather essential features of the human experience.

IT, raising interest rates enough to break the back of the highest in ation rate in 40 years. But will it be enough to stop the Fed Governors from continuing to raise their interest rates to cause a recession?

Let us hope so, as nancial markets are rallying on the good in ation news and interest rates are tumbling. e Fed looks at the rate of in ation that is a di erent animal from day-to-day prices seen by consumers and producers, which are tumbling fast.

I hope the Fed has done enough, as the main ingredients of consumer prices—gas, food, and housing prices (or equivalent rents, in the case of housing)—have been declining of late. And this is re ected in longer-term interest rates, but not in the Fed’s shortterm rates that determine credit card and auto loans.

7.1 percent. Its 40-year peak was 9.1 percent last summer. e so-called core rate of in ation, which omits food and energy, rose 0.3 percent. e core rate over the past 12 months dropped to 5.7 percent from 6 percent to mark the lowest level in a year.

is is what pandemics and wars do— create shortages of such essential items, hence the panicked Fed Governors who were fearing a repeat of the 1970s in ation surge when OPEC oil embargos and a war between Egypt and Israel broke out.

e so-called Middle East war was quickly over, but because we were still dependent on fossil fuels and hadn’t yet developed domestic production with the infamous fracking boom, we needed OPEC supplies. So in ation took longer to subside; almost t years during the 1980s, in fact.

e U.S. consumer-price index (CPI) re ected in the above FRED graph fell 0.1 percent in December and posted the rst decline since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, pointing to a further slowdown in ation a er it hit a 40-year peak last summer.

e annual rate of in ation fell for the sixth month in a row to 6.5 percent from

e developed countries are bringing down energy prices with alternative fuel supplies and a price cap on Russian oil.

Housing prices (and equivalent rents) will subside as interest rates continue falling. And economists are beginning to notice the decline in in ation.

One economist quoted by MarketWatch said, “ e 3-month annualized core CPI is down to 3.1% and at least another 1% lower if using new leases versus existing leases that have a six

to twelve month lag. We continue to expect the Fed to only raise rates two more times as CPI continues to moderate,” said Bryce Doty, senior portfolio manager at Sit Investment Associates, in emailed comments.

Food prices may be the most di cult component of the CPI to bring down with the current shortages of such essentials as wheat and corn.

But help might be on the way come Spring, since California supplies a large part of U.S. food supplies. e prolonged drought has caused California state crop production to drop some 50 percent.

According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, California’s Central Valley normally supplies eight percent of U.S. agricultural output and produces 1/4 of the Nation’s food, including 40 percent of the Nation’s fruits, nuts and other table foods.

But the Pineapple Express, named because an almost endless stream of atmospheric rivers originating in the

S. Paci c near Hawaii have hit California this winter, may have broken the latest drought. So there is some hope for lower food prices as well.

One homeowner who was recently interviewed by a local Santa Barbara TV station said he wasn’t surprised by the latest oods a ecting California because they occurred a er almost every drought period.

Maybe most U.S. consumers know this as well, and will be able to weather the latest in ation cycle without too much damage to their pocketbooks, if the Fed Governors understand such natural phenomena as well. In ation seems to occur in cycles due to events the Fed has little power to control, as do droughts and oods.

Miramar Beach in Montecito has been rewarded for its dedication to excellence in the 2022 MICHELIN Guide twice over — winning both a MICHELIN one-star, and a MICHELIN Green Star. This international accolade is one of the most prestigious honors that a restaurant can achieve, and is highly coveted throughout the world. Over 3,000 restaurants in the world have reached such acclaim, with 95 being in California. Of those 95, however, only 3 are in Santa Barbara County — Sushi by Scratch in Montecito, Bell’s in Los Alamos, and now Caruso’s.

“This recognition from the MICHELIN Guide is the ultimate honor for any chef and would not be possible without the talented contributions and hard work of our team at Caruso’s along with our remarkable purveyors,” shared Executive Chef Massimo Falsini in a statement. “I am beyond proud to be included among the state’s best restaurants and want to thank MICHELIN for continuing to promote California’s culinary excellence.”

A luxuriously designed restaurant with a view to match, Caruso’s offers Italianinspired Californian food. They are not the only dining establishment at Rosewood Miramar Beach to be recently acknowledged by the MICHELIN Guide. AMA Sushi, also at the Rosewood Miramar, was added to MICHELIN’s summer 2022 “new discoveries” list. This means that the hotel offers some of the most esteemed food that diners have available to them in Santa Barbara.

The MICHELIN Guide began in 1920, published by the French tire company of the same name. Originally created to boost tire sales by providing drivers with locations and destinations to travel to, the guide began to

take on a life of its own, and soon developed the star rating system for restaurants. Now, over 100 years later, the MICHELIN Guide has reviewed thousands of restaurants, and only superlative locations receive such acclaim.

Caruso’s has also been recognized for their dedicated sustainable consumption practices, for which they received a MICHELIN Green Star. Their comprehensive sustainability practices include partnerships with non-profits that support ocean health, a compost program to support local soil regeneration, glass reduction, oil upcycling, and hyperlocal ingredient sourcing from providers in the Central Coast. Only eleven restaurants in California have received this designation.

The Green Star is a very new award compared to what MICHELIN has typically presented to restaurants. This award can be given alone, or like with Caruso’s, alongside a

traditional star rating. That MICHELIN now includes this award is a reflection of world sentiments shifting toward sustainable and eco-friendly practices, and the chefs that cook with these ideals in mind.

“Caruso’s at Rosewood Miramar Beach is the epitome of the culinary experience showcasing the highest-quality ingredients sourced from neighboring farmers, fishermen and ranchers creating the perfect marriage between Southern Italian and Coastal Californian cuisines,” said Yannick Augy, Director of Food & Beverage for Rosewood Miramar Beach. “Its design, confident service, energy, and atmosphere

framed by the Pacific Ocean give our guests a tasteful, transformative, and sophisticated gastronomic journey that is unrivaled in the area.”

Caruso’s menu features classic Italian dishes such as burrata and spagettoni, while items such as their ‘Santa Barbara Black Cod’ or ‘Channel Island Halibut’ indicate the ‘hyperlocal’ aspect of these ingredients as part of their name in a way that connects the food that diners eat to the expansive Pacific below them.

Contemporary Art Pops Up Across SB

WITH PIONEERING CONCEPTS, contemporary art plays a key role in Santa Barbara’s vibrant arts scene, inviting personal introspection while initiating critical conversations.

This winter, locals can anticipate a city-wide celebration of this multifaceted art style as new shows open at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Arts Fund, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, which will triumphantly reopen its doors with an open house event from 12pm to 4pm on Sunday, January 22nd.


CREATIVITY, The Arts Fund’s Guest Curator Program will open its newest show, The Kind of Mother: Coloring Outside the Lines of Motherhood on Friday, January 20th from 5 to 8pm. Curated by artist Amber Valley Evangelista, the show features the works of five local artists as they reflect on the social role of mothers and motherhood.

“I was compelled to curate this show because my experiences as a mother had me questioning myself, trying to measure up to influencer moms -

thanks, social media,” shared Evangelista. “It took a time before I realized being a mom is not a series of perfectly curated moments, but a true learning experience.”

While not a strictly contemporary art exhibition, many of the works fall within that multi-faceted categorization as they explore abstraction and assemblage. Golden, plant-filled vases resembling insect-adorned busts rest across from a ceramic vessel boasting a human form. Intimate portraits depicting mother and child celebrate motherhood across cultures.

“The showcased pieces are made by passionate artists who share their personal views by honoring their mother, questioning cultural traditions, and celebrating the body,” explained Evangelista.

Participating artists include Vanessa WallaceGonzales, Meiya Sidney, Hope Okere, Juan D. Mendoza, and Amber Valley Evangelista.

MCASB’S REOPENING COMES AS A WELCOME SURPRISE after the organization announced that it was permanently closing its doors in August 2022. Now, after securing funding through a combination of sources, including foundation grants, individual support, and more, MCASB will present Opening the Doors to Wonder

“We strongly believe that art has the potential to offer the viewer opportunities for reflection, wisdom, and surprise,” shared MCASB’s Board of Trustees in a statement to VOICE. “With our reopening show, Opening the Doors to Wonder, the exhibited artists address our unique collective moment in new and surprising ways. We are living in an unsettled time of unknowing, political unrest, and on the heels of a pandemic. We hope by bringing in art that is analytically exciting and aesthetically complex, we can contribute to the community's capacity for creative thinking towards a more just future.”

A centerpiece of this show will be filmmaker Cameron Patricia Downey’s video installation Hymn of Dust. Created with collaborators Ize Commers, M. Jamison, and Cooper Felien, the film merges aspects of horror and dystopia to create a reimagined hymn.

“We also knew that we wanted to center voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color from the get-go,” continued MCASB’s Board of Trustees.

“Cameron Downey's Afrofuturist video installation centers the artist's collaborative practice and material ingenuity, offering viewers a vision of a liberated imagination.”

Filmmaker Spenser Jaimes, a Santa Barbara local with ŠmuwičChumash heritage, will also screen his documentary Connected by Water at MCASB. Premiered at the 2022 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the documentary depicts members of the Chumash, Tongva, and Acjachemen tribal nations participating in a regional paddle-out in tomols.

MCASB has also commissioned a new neon work by Los Angeles, Japanese-American artist David Horvitz. Titled Seaea, the piece hinges on the idea of examining and being examined by the sea. As a limited edition work, any proceeds raised will be divided among MCASB and Horvitz.

fought over “ten rounds” and dissolved into apathy, as husband and wife ignore each other in the same tiny room.

“Although the Kienholz often makes artwork about loneliness and isolation, that wasn't their experience,” commented James Glisson, SBMA’s Curator of Contemporary Art. “It was a very close marriage, so that's an instance in which art does not imitate life.”

By including this recent acquisition alongside other works by the Kienholz, viewers will be compelled to assess issues such as marriage, family, and sexuality. It also offers new insight into the couple’s personal and professional artistic relationship, in which Edward insisted that Nancy be attributed equal billing; an especially meaningful move within the context of 20th century American society.

The show also highlights Nancy’s solo career following Edward’s death, making SBMA the first museum to showcase her piece Home Sweet Home. Depicting a melted ‘60s television set, the piece furthers commentary on American society and shifting familial relationships.

“This doesn't explore all that Nancy's done, but it definitely sends a signal that there's great work to be assessed, there is more to be said, and here's another part of the story,” said Glisson.

exhibition, Out of Joint, showcasing sculptures and drawings visual artist and Santa Barbara resident Joan Tanner has created since 2013. Opening

“That idea that you can take something very common, like mesh, plastic sheeting, or construction materials, and with a few simple gestures - little bit of paint, a little bit of twisting, a little bit tearing - turn it into something visually interesting, I think is very, simple, straightforward, and nonetheless a powerful point to make to the public,” said Glisson, who curated the show with co-curator Julian Robson of the Great Meadows Foundation.

Tanner’s drawings mirror this artistic vision, evoking intrigue as their seemingly undeliberate swirls and forms remind viewers of familiar shapes and movements while remaining elusive. For Tanner, who held her first solo exhibition at SBMA in 1967, this exhibition will serve as a full-circle moment.


Submissions are now open for 2nd Fridays Art’s 2023 Nip it in the Bud art competition. Judged this year by artist Kerrie Smith, the theme is “Flower.” Submissions are due by February 25th, and the exhibition will be open from March 4th through April 12th. The artists reception and awards will take place on March 10th from 4:30 to 6pm. The winner of Best in Show will receive a 3-month membership to the Santa Barbara Tennis Club. info@susantibbles.com

Featured Lender of the Month ~ Meet Elizabeth

“I love being part of this group! Each Leading Lender provides something valuable and unique to the group as a whole and to our clients collectively. I feel that, for my part, Bank of the West, as a bank and a portfolio lender (meaning we keep many of the loans on our books and don’t sell them) provides me with other options and often, greater flexibility. During these crazy times, many lenders got out of jumbo loans, interest only and cut programs. Bank of the West changed very few programs. For example, we still do cash-out loans even on investment properties. The lending world and its process isn’t what I would call ‘fun’ now, but I love the consultative nature of the business and working with my clients in that capacity.”
