Description:

by Sharon Green

Where: Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, California

When: Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 7 pm

Members only Reception at 6:15 pm

The trademark photography of Sharon Green, “who shoots to thrill”, captures the true essence of competitive sailing at the highest levels. Whether hanging from helicopters or clinging to chase boats, she knows how to freeze the action and preserve its energy in a single frame.

Sharon Green will present a slideshow of images from 30+ years of Ultimate Sailing. Sharon will talk about the rigors and challenges of her unique specialization in competitive yacht racing photography and the creation of her brand Ultimate Sailing. She will share some of her behind the scenes stories of working in the world with yachting’s elite as well as discuss the changes in camera equipment and the transition of photography from film to digital.

Sharon Green has been capturing electrifying images of performance sailing for more than 30 years. Her annual Ultimate Sailing Calendar, featuring the highlights of competitive sailing, is eagerly anticipated by yachting and photography enthusiasts worldwide. Sharon has been published in major boating publications, both locally and internationally, since she first took up a camera while still in high school. In recognition of her extraordinary accomplishments in photography Sharon was awarded an honorary Master’s Degree from the prestigious Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California, where she lives with her daughter Michaela and son Kieran.

Sharon is happiest when she is on the water or hanging from a helicopter in search of the elusive image that can be called ‘Ultimate Sailing’. “My greatest satisfaction is when it all comes together: the anticipation, the planning, the organizing, the traveling, the epic conditions – to create a thrilling photograph. The pursuit of ‘Ultimate Sailing’ images never seems to grow old. Three decades and I still love the challenge of creating memorable images for my clients and the calendar.”

NOTE: This lecture will be paired with an exhibit of Sharon’s photography in the Munger Theater.

113 Harbor Way, Suite 190

View MapMap and Directions | Register

Description:

by Pamela Zwehl-Burke

Sponsored by Mimi Michaelis

Where: Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, California
When: Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm
What: Large-scale oilstick painting-drawings reference the surface of the natural world.
Cost: Free
Please RSVP: (805) 962-8404 x115

Pamela Zwehl-Burke oilstick paintings-drawings are enlarged excerpts depicting ocean, pond, forest, garden and field, organized to show the push-and-pull, the dynamic tension in nature and in designed compositions. Organic and somewhat abstract, most are made to be viewed in any of the four orientations. Many of the images connect water, sky, fauna and flora.
Forever interested in what the natural world means, she has spent many years looking, to encode and decode visual matters. She learned (at the Hochschule fuer bildende Kuenste, Kassel and Staatliches Seminar, Goettingen (both Germany), California State University, Northridge and the University of Southern California) and then taught (at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and Santa Barbara City College) drawing, figure drawing, printmaking, design and artists’ books.
The subjects of her works in a variety of scale, format and material, are for the most part a commonplace visual experiences of animal, vegetable, mineral, and their stories.

James “Bud” Bottoms is a native Californian who lives in Santa Barbara, where he has spent his life swimming and diving. His art education began at Jefferson Machamer School of Art in Santa Monica from 1947-48 and continued at the University of California-Santa Barbara from 1948-52. He worked for many years as an art director for GE’s think tank TEMPO, but after a powerful dream he had in 1978 of a woman with a dolphin, he was inspired to sculpt and to commit his life to marine mammal awareness and protection.

Bottoms became a committed environmental activist in 1969, when Santa Barbara experienced an oil blowout which polluted the ocean and devastated the local beaches, killing sea birds and marine life.

In addition to other local environmental protection projects, Bottoms has won numerous awards in recognition of his art and his contributions to protecting the oceans. Paul Watson of Sea Shepard, Ric O’Barry of Earth Island Institute, the Greenpeace crew of The Rainbow Warrior, Jacques and his son Jon-Michel Cousteau, Mikhail Gorbachev of Green Cross International, and Ted Danson of American Oceans Campaign are recipients of Bottoms’ bronze dolphin sculptures.

Bottoms is internationally known for his fountains and monuments in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Toba City, Japan; and Dingle, Ireland.
