  April 17 – August 28, 2016  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

This exhibition celebrates the complexity of South Asian representation and iconography by examining the relationship between aesthetic expression and the devotional practice, or puja, in the three native religions of the Indian subcontinent.

From monumental painted temple hangings to meditation diagrams and portable pictures for pilgrims, from stone sculptures to processional bronzes and wooden chariots, from ancient terracottas to various devotional objects for domestic shrines, this exhibition aims to examine and provide contextualized insights for both classical and popular works of art.    ($5 - $10)

Lewis deSoto: Paranirvana (Self-Portrait)  
  On view April 17 – August 21, 2016  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

Works by Lewis deSoto are informed by the artist’s longstanding interest in anthropology, history, mythology, and religion. Proficient in a variety of media, DeSoto is recognized for his photography, sculpture, and mixed media installations that incorporate video, sound, and performance. Paranirvana (Self-Portrait) (2015) is the most recent work in a series of oversize, inflatable sculptures based on the figure of the 12th-century Buddha at Gal Vihara in Sri Lanka. Conceived after his father died, figures from this series are in recline, much like the famous Buddha, and painted with features that resemble the artist. This work is just as much a self-portrait as it is a representation of universal life, death, and supreme consciousness. Activated with a low-noise industrial fan, the 26-foot long, 6-foot high sculpture inflates (inhales) when switched on, and deflates (exhales) when switched off at the end of each day, alluding to the spiritual breath, or Prana, in Hindu philosophy. Prevailing among a vast range of counterpoints: monumental and ephemeral, witty and thought-provoking, Paranirvana (Self-Portrait) rouses reflections upon existence, loss, spirituality, and much more. This work was specially commissioned by SBMA and is presented in the Museum’s historic Ludington Court.    ($5 - $10)

    Temporary/Contemporary performance by Weslie Ching  
  MCASB Satellite @ Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara, 121 State Street, Santa Barbara CA
Featured as part of Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara’s exhibition Shift, Stretch, Expand: Everyday Transformations at MCASB Satellite @ Hotel Indigo, is a site-specific dance work by Santa Barbara-based artist, Weslie Ching. The piece unfolds in various areas of the hotel—a setting, similar to that of a train station, airport, office building, and museum, in which people who have no relationship to each other, other than their temporary location, are together. Ching’s performance explores the sense of anonymity, rootlessness, restlessness, time dilation or contraction, and identity shifting an individual can experience in transitional environments. Temporary/Contemporary is performed three times throughout 2016:June 26 at 2pm; and October 7 at 6pm.

Fallen Angels  
  The New Vic Theatre, 33 West Victoria Street, Santa Barbara CA

By Noël Coward - With their passionless husbands away playing golf, a mutual long-ago lover announces his intention to pay Julia and Jane an impromptu visit. All in a fluster, there’s clearly only one thing to do: hit the bottle! Or rather, pop open the bubbly. Each successive glass loosens their tongues, hidden jealousies surface, the claws come out, and all attempts at demure behavior go out of the window. But it’s not until the unexpected early return of their golfing husbands that the women’s evening really hits its frenzied peak. Sponsored by Geoff and Joan Rutkowski & Dan and Donna Hone. Directed by Art Manke.   ($20 - $75)

The Glass Menagerie  
  Solvang Festival Theater, 420 2nd Street, Solvang CA

A faded remnant of Southern gentility, Amanda Wingfield lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment. Abandoned by her husband, Amanda comforts herself with recollections of her earlier, more gracious life in Blue Mountain when she was pursued by “gentleman callers.” Her son Tom, a poet with a job in a warehouse, longs for adventure and escape from his mother's suffocating embrace, while Laura, her shy ‘crippled’ daughter, has her glass menagerie and her memories. Amanda is desperate to find her daughter a husband, but when the long-awaited gentleman caller does arrive, Laura's romantic illusions are crushed. A drama of great tenderness and beauty, The Glass Menagerie rightfully holds a place as a classic of modern American dramas.
