    Contemporary/Modern: Selections from the Permanent Collection
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
"Contemporary/Modern" brings together a selection of significant painting and sculpture from the Museum’s permanent collection. Works in the exhibition date from 1958 to 2014, and together highlight the persistent influence of modernism. The most recent works inventively reference and reinterpret the past—including both popular and obscure forms of painting, architecture, and design. The earliest works, each part of significant movements in abstract painting, articulate reductive forms suggesting a distinctively utopian view of the future. By sampling and mixing substantial works of the present with the past, this installation aims to provide a glimpse into an ongoing and dynamic dialogue between the two. Featuring eleven works by eight artists of national and international renown: Helen Frankenthaler, Guy Goodwin, Frederick Hammersley, Josiah McElheny, John McLaughlin, Jorge Pardo, Larry Poons, and Lucas Samaras.

Artist-in-Residence: Eric Beltz, The Cave of Treasures
  Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
As the 2014 Artist-in-Residence, Eric Beltz will present an ambitious new project, The Cave of Treasures, a dramatic departure for the artist who is known for his intimately-scaled, highly-detailed graphite drawings. The title refers to three recurring themes in Beltz's work that are commonly understood as harmful-Medusa, poison oak, and the swastika- and is rooted in the artist's academic research into legends, tragedies, misinterpretations, and evolutions of iconography surrounding mythological figures, plants, and symbols. These interests manifest in a large-scale wall drawing, in silver ink on black paper, and a wood and concrete sculpture containing live plants. Collectively, they serve as a meditative interpretation of nature, fear, seduction, and repulsion. The Cave of Treasures is Beltz's first solo Museum exhibition and represents the ten-year anniversary of the artist's graduation from UC Santa Barbara.

> DETAILS

  William Polonsky, PhD, CDE 
Living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) not only presents physical challenges, but mindset challenges as well. To live well with T1D, acknowledging and addressing these emotional stresses is often the most important step a patient can take. Unfortunately, it is too easy for both T1Ders as well as doctors to neglect this "personal" side of the diabetes. Polonsky's presentation will cover the stresses of diabetes as well as the latest scientific research on these subjects. Most importantly, it will discuss some of the key strategies for overcoming these stresses and managing T1D more effectively. This event open to those with type 1 diabetes or parents of children with type 1 diabetes.
