Art in the Garden
A dozen Santa Barbara artists, most from the Mesa Artists Studio Tour, are looking forward to showing their work for sale in an extraordinary historic garden on the Mesa. Artists and their work will be tucked in among a dozen secluded little nooks in the shady, hundred-year-old garden.
Artist Poppy Jewett and her husband, current owners of the house and garden at 403 Loma Alta Drive, will host with additional art work by Meg Ricks, Danuta Bennett, Sherri West, Ellen Yeomans, Karin Aggeler, Sara Woodburn, Wendy Brewer, Sally Hamilton, Kimberly Pratt, and Lena Savage.
The well-known Carl Oscar Borg created both the house and garden as a Santa Barbara studio and retreat. Borg, who painted scenery for Hollywood films, was also a fine artist, one of the founders of the California Art Club, a member of the Academy of Arts and Academy of Design, as well as of the French National Society of Beaux Arts. He was a friend to the Santa Barbara group of artists that developed on the Mesa in the early twentieth century, including Edward Borein, whose life and work was recently featured at the Santa Barbara History Museum
Artwork on display will range from Poppy Jewett’s exuberant, bright paintings, to Sara Woodburn’s intricate woodcut prints, Wendy Brewer’s inspiring mosaics of broken glass and tiny objects, and Sherri West’s sculptural basketry.
