Robin Lloyd will present a visual power point (more than 100 visuals, many of them maritime painting images from 6 different museums) that will take you into the world of the American merchant marine from 1820-1850. The talk will give you the history behind his book, Rough Passage to London, as well as give a detailed portrayal of the ships, the routes, the passengers and the sailors of the ante-bellum era when the United States sailing ships were the link across the Atlantic. The talk focuses heavily on the New York packet ship lines as they were carrying most of the passengers and cargo across to England and France. As such, you will see some wonderful historic paintings of old New York as well as many illustrations of these ships off the coast of England, illustrations of the Thames River and the Docklands of London. The talk will also explain how he uncovered the story of his ancestor, Captain Elisha Ely Morgan and his close connection with Charles Dickens. He will tell you the personal story of this man’s rise through the ranks of the merchant marine.

Robin Lloyd’s early years were spent on the island of St. Croix where his father ran a dairy farm and the island’s only milk plant. As a boy, he grew up blue water sailing with his parents between islands in the Caribbean. While his childhood was spent in an environment of sailing and farming, his higher education and subsequent broadcasting career took him elsewhere. After an undergraduate degree from Princeton University and a Master’s degree from Columbia University’s School of Journalism, he worked in local television news for several years as an on-air reporter in Seattle and then later in Miami. In 1979, he began reporting for NBC News in Latin America and the Caribbean.

During his 14 year tenure with NBC as a correspondent, he covered the guerrilla wars in El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua, as well as the Falklands War in Argentina; in the Reagan years, he was reassigned to Washington D.C. where he covered the State Department as well as the White House. In 1988, he was named NBC’s African correspondent where he covered the turmoil surrounding the last years of South Africa’s apartheid regime as well as the release of Nelson Mandela from prison. He was sent by the network to provide coverage of the first Gulf War, reporting from Egypt and Kuwait. After NBC closed its African bureau in Johannesburg in 1992, he was brought back to Washington where he was named one of NBC’s National Correspondents.

In 1994, he left NBC to begin a new career, creating and producing news programs with foreign networks, and writing and producing longer news segments and documentaries, primarily for Maryland Public Television. Over the years, he has won numerous awards, including an Overseas Press Award, and four Emmy’s from the National Capital Chesapeake Bay region for documentaries done for Maryland Public Television. The last award he received was for a 2009 documentary on the building of an historic wooden ship in the Chesapeake Bay. He has also written travel articles for many publications, including the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has also written boating articles for Cruising World and the British magazine, Classic Boat.

Art Exhibit Opening Reception

Sponsored by Mimi Michaelis

Where: Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, California
When: Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Art Exhibit Open until February 1, 2015
What: Woodcut Prints and Mosaics

Cost: Free

Please RSVP below or call (805) 962-8404 x115

Patti Jacquemain’s exhibit, From the Mountains to the Sea, is a reflection of her love of both aspects of our coast, the sea on one side and the land on the other. It is a reflection of the time of her life when she spent three years living and creating art on a 44’ CSY (Caribbean Sailing Yachts) sailboat and how inspired she was by the moods of the sea, the beauty of the coastline, and mankind’s interaction with both. Some of the woodblock prints in this exhibit have been drawn from that experience and others are from her life growing up in Santa Barbara, where she has lived since she was three-years old. The media she is exhibiting are woodblock prints and glass mosaic tile, two very time consuming and ancient forms of art. Her choice of images for this exhibit also reflect her concern and love for our local land, sea, and airborne wildlife, all of which she feels are becoming more and more endangered as we expand into their habitats.

Patti Jacquemain grew up on a ranch in Santa Barbara and attended local schools. She received a scholarship from Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles but later transferred to the University of California at Santa Barbara where she received her BA and MFA in Fine Art. As an artist, Jacquemain has had many one-woman shows of her original woodblock prints across the country and her work is found in numerous collections. Her images have been distributed internationally through the publication of greeting cards and calendars by UNICEF, Pomegranate Press, and the Sierra Club, and locally through Mission Creek Studios and Chaucer’s Bookstore. She is the author and illustrator of three art books; Sweet Seasons: Santa Barbara in Time and Color, Wild Birds of the West, and a children’s book, Journey of the Great Bear. Jacquemain is also a mosaic artist with commissions permanently installed in Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital, the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, the First Presbyterian Church, and Creekspirit (a private mosaic garden in Mission Canyon), among other public and private collections.

Jacquemain founded the Wildling Art Museum in 1997, now located in Solvang, CA, and the Creekspirit Wildlife Foundation in Santa Barbara in 2002. Both organizations are devoted to the preservation of our environment and wildlife through art.

Surfing today is pursued by an estimated 20 million people worldwide and it supports a $10 billion global industry. The sport has acquired an inescapable cultural presence, and there are thriving surf communities from Iceland and Ireland to Israel and Indonesia—and, of course, Santa Barbara, which has been a surfing hotbed for over half a century. How did an ancient Polynesian pastime become a global commercial and cultural phenomenon?

Surfing is often portrayed as a refuge from modern society, but the sport’s expansion rode deep social currents: from colonialism, the military-industrial complex, and globalization to environmental engineering and race and gender roles. Surfing combines romantic counterculture ideals and middle-class values; it reconciles an individualistic communion with nature and a growing commitment to commerce and technology. This split personality, which pairs subversive social rebellion and the middle-class mainstream, dates to the earliest encounters between European explorers and Polynesian surfers and has characterized modern surfing for the last century. This talk will examine the history of surfing’s constant struggle to save its soul, with particular attention to Santa Barbara’s thriving surf community.

Peter Westwick was born and raised in Santa Barbara and has been an avid surfer for over thirty years. He received his BA in physics and PhD in history from Berkeley and is now on the history faculty at USC, where he directs the Aerospace History Project at the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West.  He was previously the Eleanor Searle Visiting Professor in the History of Science at Caltech and an Olin Fellow in International Security Studies at Yale.

He is the author of Into the Black: JPL and the American Space Program, 1976-2004 (Yale, 2006), which won book prizes from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the American Astronautical Society; and The National Labs: Science in an American System, 1947-1974 (Harvard, 2003), which won the book prize of the Forum for the History of Science in America.  He is also editor of Blue Sky Metropolis: The Aerospace Century in Southern California (UC Press, 2012), which was selected to the Best Non-Fiction of 2012 by the Los Angeles Public Library.  Most recently he co-authored, with fellow Santa Barbaran Peter Neushul, The World in the Curl: An Unconventional History of Surfing (Random House, 2013), an LA Times bestseller and the subject of his talk at the SB Maritime Museum.

This boutique beer festival will offer guests a chance to taste nautically-inspired beers from a dozen different craft breweries as they explore the museum and learn about beer. Tickets include a commemorative glass, unlimited tastings, and food pairings. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.

Anchors and Ales is being curated by beer writer and Certified Cicerone (beer Sommelier) Zach Rosen. The different brews being served will examine the relationship between beer, water, and the sea, including some beers that even use the ocean as an ingredient. Guests will get to sample the beers while exploring traditional brewing techniques and learning about the role of beer in maritime history. Guests will also learn about water as a beer ingredient and breweries’ efforts towards sustainability and water conservation. Anchors and Ales will be a unique event that offers an evening full of beer, education, and fun.

Zach Rosen is a Certified Cicerone® and beer educator. His specialty is coordinating and hosting beer events, in addition to serving as a consultant, teacher and writer. Zach uses his background in chemical engineering and the arts to seek out abstract expressions of beer, combining it with movies, music, and other conceptual counterparts to demonstrate how beer pairs with life.
