The Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment (SCAPE) and the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) are cohosting The SBMM 20th Anniversary Virtual SCAPE Art Show & Sale, an online exhibit and sale of fine art on Saturday, July 25-Friday, August 7. This event will feature the work of 75 artists and their views of our ocean and Santa Barbara’s maritime life to benefit SBMM. Artwork may be viewed and purchased online at beginning July 25, 2020.

SCAPE was founded in 2002 and has grown to over 200 members, a diverse group including nationally known and local artists, students, patrons, and gallery owners. Membership is open year-round to everyone who wants to participate. SCAPE’s goals are to have exhibitions to help raise money to protect open spaces, to increase public awareness of environmental and conservation issues, to promote camaraderie and provide education for artists. They mount 2 or 3 juried exhibits every year. To date over $100,000 has been raised to benefit local non-profit beneficiaries including the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Channelkeeper, and Heal the Ocean, among others.
