Art at the JCC: SB Art Association Exhib
Thursday July 05, 2012
Sunday, July 5, 5-8 pm
as part of Santa Barbara's 1st Thursday
Art at the JCC is hosting a juried art show for the Santa Barbara Art Association (SBAA). Paintings in a mix of media and genres will be submitted by SBAA members to be judged for excellence. Those chosen will exhibit at the Bronfman Family Jewish Community Center Gallery July 5-Sept. 25, 2012. The judge will be Frank Goss, owner of Sullivan Goss - An American Gallery.
Artist and collector Eli Luria launched Art at the JCC in 1999 to provide high-caliber, strongly-themed exhibits for the Santa Barbara community. The exhibit openings often feature gallery talks and panels with artists, curators and collectors that draw lively crowds.
The Santa Barbara Art Association’s first exhibition was in June 1952 at the Faulkner Gallery’s reopening after the war. Started by a few of the local artists with the mission to present free art shows and encourage art in the community, they have sponsored over 500 shows at venues around town with a rich diversity of art in various media. SBAA now has 545 members, including painters, printmakers, mixed media artists, sculptors, ceramists, fused glass makers, and jewelers. SBAA is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

Sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara
