Highlights of the Permanent Collection  
  Opens February 7, 2016 – Ongoing  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

In celebration of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s 75th Anniversary in 2016, this installation highlights the most celebrated works of art from SBMA’s permanent collection, as well as several of the most exciting gifts and acquisitions in the areas of modern and contemporary art, photography, and the arts of Asia. The small works on paper gallery features favorite photographs of former curator, Karen Sinsheimer, as a tribute to her vision in the building of the permanent collection. This eclectic group of objects, meant to sample the breadth and diversity of the permanent collection while some of the Museum’s galleries are temporarily closed for renovation, includes favorites such as the sensual life-size bronze Bather Putting Up Her Hair (1932) by Aristide Maillol, the haunting Yuan dynasty Seated Luohan (13th century), and the important, early painting by the famed Bay Area Figuration artist Richard Diebenkorn. Ridley-Tree Gallery also continues to showcase favorites of 19th-century Impressionism, such as the beloved Villas in Bordighera (1884) by Claude Monet, along with the long-term loans from the Armand Hammer Foundation and the collection of Michael Armand Hammer. Works of art honoring the collecting acumen of Karen Sinsheimer include photographs such as Michael Light’s captivating appropriation of Southern Lunar Hemisphere (1999)—a work that demonstrates the late curator’s fascination with innovative intersections of art and science.    ($5 - $10)

Interventions: Cayetano Ferrer  
  November 8, 2015 – March 13, 2016  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

This site-specific installation reveals the artist’s ongoing investigation into what he calls object prosthetics—the reconstruction of broken remains using a variety of conceptual and technological methods. Ferrer is interested in architectural fragments—as both objects and as ideas. His Composite series of sculpture is made by filling in pieces of marble or stone with digitally printed PVC that acts as a stand-in for what is perceived as “missing.” What results is a reimagining that can be considered both authentic as well as speculative. Hybrid sculptures that represent part fantasy and part elegy, Ferrer’s works provide the viewer ample space to imagine what lies between historical fact and invention.

Cameron Carpenter  
  Cameron Carpenter  
  The Granada Theatre, 1214 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

Cameron Carpenter is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music, and all the while generating international acclaim unprecedented in his field. Carpenter’s repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, his original compositions and hundreds of transcriptions and arrangements – is probably the largest and most diverse of any organist. He is the first concert organist in history to prefer the digital organ to the pipe organ and to champion it as the future of the instrument. In 2014, Carpenter launched his International Touring Organ, a monumental cross-genre digital organ built by Marshall & Ogletree to his own design. His album If You Could Read My Mind entered Billboard’s Traditional Classical chart at No. 1 on its U.S. release.    ($20 - $48)
