By Ted Mills   |   September 9, 2021

I’m knocking on wood right now (my own skull, don’t ya know), but it almost feels like some normalcy is returning in pockets to Santa Barbara’s art scene. I know that’s hard when a lot of our favorite galleries and spaces have upped and left. But there’s things you should know about, and I’d be […]

3 Qs with Delila Moseley: Finally Free to Dance on Film
By Steven Libowitz   |   April 28, 2021

The opening sequence of UCSB Dance Department’s COVID-coping triptych of dance films shows a series of eerily empty spaces all over the seaside campus. But it’s not meant to be a metaphor or pandering to the pandemic, said artistic director Delila Moseley, a longtime professor of dance at UCSB. Moseley has been able to actually […]

Virtual Visual Arts, Plus Chances to Actually Visit
By Steven Libowitz   |   May 7, 2020

This issue arrives on May 7, which, in normal times, would have been a time for art lovers to gather downtown on lower State Street and nearby blocks to partake in the gallery, museum, and boutique self-guided tour known as 1st Thursday.

A Rebel will Rise
By Ted Mills   |   May 30, 2019

Artist Inga Guzyte is lucky.

By Mitchell Kriegman   |   October 18, 2018

“I look for microbubbles, that lie among the wheat, and bake them into mutton-pies, and sell them in the street,” to misquote Lewis Carroll. I’ve always wondered why the Walrus didn’t mention microbubbles as well. He certainly didn’t mind talking of those other things, like shoes, and ships, and sealing wax. Whenever I see an […]
