British Art from Whistler to World War II
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
September 18, 2016 – January 8, 2017 ..... Curated by art historian Peyton Skipwith and drawn entirely from the permanent collection of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, this selection of some 50 paintings, drawings, and sculptures presents an overview of British art from around 1890 through 1945. Essentially, the exhibition presents the story of modernism unique to England: the persistence of figuration even as the lessons from continental avant-garde practice were absorbed. Cubism, Surrealism, Suprematism, Expressionism, and Vorticism signaled a definitive rupture with the tradition of representational content as commonly understood and a decided move towards abstraction. Artists represented include three of the founders of the New English Art Club: Walter Sickert, Philip Wilson Steer, and Paul Maitland, who established an alternative exhibition space to the traditional spaces of the Royal Academy in the 1890s. Richly represented are those artists who attended the Slade School in the heady years right before World War I, including James Innes, Christopher Nevinson, Adrian Allinson, and Stanley Spencer. The show takes the visitor through the World Wars and the ultimate absorption of continental modernism in England with representative works by Wyndam Lewis, Paul Nash, John Tunnard, and Eileen Agar and concludes with the biomorphic abstractions of Graham Sutherland and Henry Moore. ..... $6 - $10

Seven Doors: Jan Tichy and the Chiaroscuro of Art Museum Collecting
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
September 18 – November 27, 2016 ..... In this unique presentation, artist Jan Tichy (b. 1974, Czech, resides in Chicago) has devised a special installation in direct response to the Museum’s current position in its 75-year history―on the brink of a transformative renovation, with the vibration and sound of concrete demolition palpable. The Museum is typically celebrated for the art that it displays. But in the situation of systematic overhaul for renovation in which SBMA finds itself, suddenly some doors that are habitually open, must be closed. Tichy is known for his time-based video installations, which are typically motivated by a specific social and institutional situation. In this case, the institution of the Museum is at a turning point in its evolution. Working with SBMA curators and with full access to the Museum’s rich documentation, which has recently been organized and mostly digitized in anticipation of the Museum’s 75th-anniversary year now underway, Tichy has combined his own work with seven objects that he has plucked from the Museum’s vast permanent collection. The result is a stunning, visually elegant, and meaningful exhibition in the hallowed spaces of the original 1912 post office structure, which was later designated the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 1941. ..... $6 - $10

September 18, 2016 – January 8, 2017 ..... Adjacent to the “British Art from Whistler to World War II” exhibition, is a series of dramatic World War II photographs by Sir Cecil Beaton (1904–1980). Best known for his iconic images of royalty and movie legends and multi-award winning designs for such films as “My Fair Lady,” Beaton created extraordinary photographs of Britain during World War II’s cataclysm. Already established in the 1930s as a major fashion, society and Hollywood photographer, Beaton was hired by the UK’s Ministry of Information at the war’s outset to persuasively reflect the hardships and spirit of the British nation during this legendary time of trial. ..... $6 - $10

Done. Undone. Redone. The Chair
Art, Design & Architecture Museum
, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
The evolution of the chair has depended upon the human body and the history of previous designs. The challenge of chair design is to balance form and function; it is as important to look at a chair as it is to sit in it. This exhibition explores the morphology of chair design and the 'object-ness' of the chair as a sculptural statement. Works from the eighteenth century to present day, including modern icons by Eames, Rietveld, Schindler, and Weber, reveal both the rejection and the revisiting of earlier styles. Curated by Lilit Sadoyan, Curatorial Fellow and Doctoral Candidate, History of Art and Architecture.

Irving J. Gill: Simplicity and Reform
Art, Design & Architecture Museum
, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
Irving J. Gill (1870–1936) created a distinctive architecture in Southern California, using a refined and abstracted architectural vocabulary which he described as “the straight line, the cube, the arch, and the circle.” This exhibition examines Gill’s architectural language and his experiments with materials and construction. The roots of his idealistic achievement are traced to the social concerns of the Progressive era and the Arts and Crafts movement, and the influence of Chicago architectLouis Sullivan (1856–1924), who argued for a “new architecture in America,” unaffected by the past and based on a transcendental view of nature.

Iron & Wine
UCSB Campbell Hall
, UCSB Campus , Santa Barbara
The last decade has seen Sam Beam, under the stage name Iron & Wine, become a bona fide superstar in indie circles. The release of his debut album, The Creek Drank the Cradle, heralded the arrival of a strikingly original vocal talent with hushed tones backed by sparse instrumentation. Since then, Beam has expanded his sound to include electronic instruments and rich, lush textures. His recent album, Love Letter for Fire, written with singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, veers from introspective folk to disparate pop. Beam returns to the unforgettable lo-fi sound of his beginnings in this intimate solo-acoustic performance.
