Social gridlock reigned when dynamic duo Ralph and Diane Waterhouse opened their first art gallery on Coast Village Road, formerly the site of the Scoops ice cream store.

The Waterhouse Gallery is an extension of their nearly four decades old La Arcada emporium in Santa Barbara, next door to the popular French eatery Petit Valentien.

“We’ve always wanted to have a gallery on Coast Village Road and this became available,” Diane told me at the opening bash.

Diane, who I’ve known for many years, has been a member of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Women’s Board for 13 years and also served on the Santa Barbara Historical Museum board for two terms.
