David Wiesner & The Art of Wordless Storytelling
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
January 29 – May 14, 2017 ..... David Wiesner (b. 1956) is one of the most highly acclaimed picture book artists in the world. Winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal for “Tuesday” in 1992, “The Three Pigs” in 2002, and “Flotsam” in 2007, Wiesner is only the second person in the history of the award to have received it three times. This exhibition of 90 objects is the first to contextualize Wiesner’s art through the inclusion of work by other artists by whom Wiesner was influenced, while also foregrounding the artist’s creative process. Of the earlier masters of wordless picture books, Wiesner has cited three in particular who held sway over his artistic formation: the Belgian born Frans Masereel (1889–1972), the German artist Otto Nückel (1888–1955), and American wordless book specialist, Lynd Ward (1905–1985). Wiesner was also deeply affected by comic book legends Jack Kirby (1917–1994) and Jim Steranko (b. 1938), best known for their work for Marvel. The exhibition and associated catalogue include original art by these artists, as well as Salvador Dalí, Joseph Stella, and Charles Sheeler. In addition, the exhibition catalogue features full-color plates of Wiesner’s original watercolors from his earliest artistic successes to his most recent project: his first graphic novel, “Fish Girl,” scheduled for release in March 2017. The exhibition catalogue is made possible through the generosity of Zora and Les Charles. ..... $6 - $10

Christian Marclay: Telephones
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
Ongoing ..... A landmark in the history of video art, Christian Marclay’s "Telephones" (1995) is an expertly edited sequence of black-and-white and color film clips featuring people using an assortment of telephones, all from the pre-smart phone era. "Telephones" offers an engaging yet complex experience: while we are all familiar with watching “the movies,” Marclay’s work blends unrelated but recognizable characters and stories into a continuous stream that upends our expectations of how stories are told and meanings are created. At times humorous, startling, tense and poignant, "Telephones" allows us to reflect on how we immediately—and often involuntarily—process information and entertainment in our media-dominated world. ..... $6 - $10

Judith Shea: Mid-Life Venus
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
Ongoing ..... Inspired by an affirmation of the classical, employing the space that traditionally houses SBMA’s Wright Ludington/Lansdowne Collection of Greco-Roman antiquities (currently on view at the Getty Center), and extending the celebration of SBMA’s 75th anniversary, Judith Shea’s iconic "Mid-Life Venus" was recently installed in Ludington Court, where it will remain through winter. Shea's Venus is a direct reference to the famous ancient sculpture "Venus de Milo," the famous ancient Greek sculpture in the collection of the Louvre. Unlike the classical statue, this figure is depicted as a bit older than usual—a victim of middle age, as its title humorously suggests. She also clutches a white dress, which cascades into fabric, terminating in the bolt from which the dress was cut. A multitude of associations are triggered by this work, perhaps strongest of all the persistence of the depiction of the nude female form and the many different ways such depictions may be understood as social attitudes continue to shift. ..... $6 - $10

Carved Paper: The Art of the Japanese Stencil
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
February 12 – May 7, 2017 ..... Japanese paper stencils, or katagami, are the pattern-bearing tools used in a resist-dyeing textile process known as katazome. Despite their utilitarian role, katagami, with their striking patterns, have long captivated Western collectors and artists. Stencil designs were not intended to be viewed as isolated compositions, but as repeated, rhythmic patterns on the fluid surface of cloth. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, the selected stencils were produced in the late Edo and Meiji periods (1850–1912) when the Japanese demand for new fashion stimulated an outpouring of patterns that has rarely been equaled in the world of design. Since few everyday garments have survived, stencils remain the principal record of this rich textile tradition. These finely carved patterns on rich brown papers were a major source of inspiration in the Art Nouveau movement in France, the Applied Arts movement in Vienna, and the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain and America. The katagami collection at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art was first established with the gift of 75 stencils from the estate of Lockwood de Forest (1850–1932), a key figure in the American Aesthetic movement who was at one time a business partner of Louis Comfort Tiffany. ..... $6 - $10

Landscapes from the Permanent Collection
Wildling Museum
, 1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang
The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature has a small and diverse permanent art collection. The works in this exhibition are the majority of our painting collection with a few of our special prints included. Almost all of the works were received as gifts, for which we are very grateful. Works date from as early as 1918 to the 2010s and represent sweeping vistas like Henry Breuer’s large panoramic painting to more intimate moments, like Ray Strong’s small canvas of a flowering plum tree.

Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin; Simone Forti; Yvonne Rainer in CA and NY 1955-1972
Art, Design & Architecture Museum
, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin taught an experimental workshop attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer on her dance deck on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco. Within two years, Forti’s conceptually forceful dance constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono’s loft and Rainer had cofounded the ground-breaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time in over fifty-five years. Dance was a fundamental part of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized vision for dance, music and the visual arts that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day.

In a house where you do as you like, no questions asked - they encounter the open circle of Sycamore family and friends - novel novelist, devoted dancer, ballet master, ex-Grand Duchess waitress, amateur printer, tax evaders, society shirkers and free thinkers and the evening explodes into hysterical, and all too real, fireworks.

SBAS Tree Swallow Nest Box Project
Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History
, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road, Santa Barbara
Steve Senesac
The Tree Swallow naturally nests in tree cavities (often made by woodpeckers). Tree removal and grooming disturbs this habitat and is the likely reason why Tree Swallows dropped to the status of being an uncommon breeder around Santa Barbara and Ventura. Starting in the 1980s, Jan Wasserman in Ventura and later Dave Eldridge and Don Schroeder in Santa Barbara worked to reverse this trend by developing nest box programs. Steve Senesac continued their legacy in 2015 when he became the Science Chair for SBAS. He will discuss what SBAS has been doing to reinforce our efforts in this area and provide analysis of years of data that have produced a number of fascinating facts and identified thought-provoking trends.
