It was all about accentuating the negative when Cabana Home, the interior design store, just a tiara’s toss from the Funk Zone, hosted a reception for Santa Barbara artist George Legrady.

Legrady, 69, described as a multidisciplinary digital media artist, had 13 of his interesting works, based in Transylvania, Athens, Greece, and Montreal, on display.

The works, photographic negatives on metal, have been shown in many international galleries including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, MOCA in Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Museum of Art, with his unusual art in the permanent collections of the National Galley of Canada, the Whitney in New York, and the Smithsonian in Washington.

Among the art lovers turning out for the bash, hosted by Steve and Caroline Thompson, were Gerald Incandela, Robyn Geddes, Mary Ellen Tiffany, and Dawn Moore, daughter of Lone Ranger actor Clayton Moore.
