Stork to exhibit at SBCAST
Carpinteria artist Matthew Stork’s exhibition “In Flight,” will be part of Downtown Santa Barbara’s First Thursday art events at SBCAST, 513 Garden St., Santa Barbara, on Thursday April 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. Stork explores the metaphor of flying through mixed media and augmented reality. “Concepts of animism and semiotics influence my mixed-media work combining drawing, painting and found objects, including discarded technology and natural-world objects,” Stork wrote. “These works create emotions, thoughts, questions and answers experienced within the viewer’s mind.” Stork will also participate in the Carpinteria Arts Center’s Studio Tour event on the weekend of May 11-12.

Former Carpinterian publishes third novel
Willard Thompson’s third novel, “The Girl from the Lighthouse,” is set in the 19th century and tells the story of Emma Dobbins who was raised by her father, a lighthouse keeper at Point Conception. Dobbins discovers her artistic talent and travels to Paris with a chaperone at the age of 17. She ends up alone during the start of the Belle Èpoque, and France soon is involved in the Franco/Prussian War and the Commune Uprising. Dobbins struggles to realize her dream of becoming an artist in the novel, which is told in the first person and takes place from the 1870s until 1912, just before the start of WWI. Thompson has won numerous awards for his writing and is also a lecturer and historian. His previous novels are “Dream Helper” and “Delfina’s Gold.” Thompson now lives in Montecito.
