Surface Tension Art Exhibit Opening Reception

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.

Cultural anthropologist and author Marla Daily shares the little-known facts and anecdotes behind photographs featured in her latest book, The California Channel Islands (Images of America). Daily has researched the islands for almost 40 years.  Every day, thousands of Southern California residents see the California Channel Islands on the horizon, yet few can name all eight islands.

Marla Daily has spent her career researching the histories of all eight islands. For over 25 years she has served as president of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation, a nonprofit organization that collects, protects and preserves the cultural histories of Santa Cruz and the other seven islands. The California Historical Society bestowed upon Daily its Distinguished Service Award for her extraordinary service and dedicated efforts in preserving Channel Islands history. The majority of island images to be presented are from the archives of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation.
