Lecture Series Sponsored by Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and Silvio Di Loreto

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.
