SUNDAY, April 15, 3-5pm
Kathryn Jacobi in the Main Gallery
Arias and Nocturnes
Through the Apocalypse: Sleepers
Kathryn Jacobi's poignant
paintings of musicians and singers are like a great piece of music in and
of themselves. Shown together, the works suggest a fugue: the quiet,
introspective views of singular vocalists against blackened voids next to
the dramatic, intimate operatic duets are dynamically contrapuntal and
wonderfully moving. This exhibition highlights singer Geeta Novotny
singing the Habanera from the opera Carmen, in which Jacobi captures the
intensity of music with a passion few artists can muster.
Born in New York, Kathryn
Jacobi has spent most of her life in California. Classically trained, she
counts the early Northern European Renaissance painters Durer, Hans
Holbein the Younger and Roger Van der Weyden among her greatest
influences. Jacobi studied painting, drawing, graphics and photography at
California State University, Northridge where she earned a B.A. in 1978
and an M.A. in 1980.
A prolific artist in many mediums including etching,
printmaking, drawing and watercolor painting, Jacobi has focused her most
recent efforts in oil painting and digital photography. She has shown her work
in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and in Canada,
Germany, Denmark, the former Czechoslovakia and Spain. Jacobi's works of art belong to the
public collections of the Centrum Judaicum (Stiftung Neue Synogogue) in
Berlin, Germany, the San Francisco Cultural and Civic Center, the Herbert
F. Johnson Museum of Cornell University, the New York Public Library, the
Fresno Art Museum, California State University, Northridge, the National
Watercolor Society and the Skirball Museum among many other cultural
Ruth Weisberg in the North Gallery
Then & Now
Ruth Weisberg is an artist and
Professor at the Roski School of Fine Arts, University of Southern
California. Her most recent solo museum exhibitions were at the Skirball
Museum, Los Angeles 2007 and the Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena California
2009. Recent major commissions include the 28 foot mural for the New York
Jewish Federation entitled New Beginnings: 100 Years of Jewish
Immigration and the drawings for The Open Door Haggada published by the
Central Council of American Rabbis (The Reform Movement). Weisberg is in
over 60 museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New
York, the National Gallery, Washington, DC and the Art Institute of
The Chicago-born Weisberg works
primarily in painting, lithography, and drawing. According to Drew
Stevens, "Ruth Weisberg's art has consistently been figurative and
often autobiographical through times when other styles have passed in and
out of fashion. These two qualities are like a breath of fresh air at a
time when we are accustomed to works of art encompassing huge gestures
and global concerns; works that are personal and subtle as Weisberg's
require a corresponding sympathy and close attention to the narratives
her images imply. Weisberg's art seems an extension of her life; her
personal convictions, her activism in the artworld, and her commitment to
her many students reflect the same sort of concerns about the place of
the individual in society as does her art, which has consistently
examined her own place in the concentric realms of family, society, and
history. The artist Alberto Giacometti (1901 - 1966) emerges as a
resonant character in Weisberg's Tandem prints." In the Good
Daughter she places her daughter in Giacometti's studio, "with
enough realism that I seduce the viewer into my dream."

Afternoons with June: Stories of June Wayne's Art &
Ann Brown with June Wayne, 2011
Afternoons with June traces June Wayne's extraordinary life, beginning with
her birth in Chicago to Russian Jewish immigrant parents; covering her
first exhibition at the young age of 17, her travels to Mexico, as well
as her time in the art worlds of New York and Paris; and culminating in
her richly productive creative life in Los Angeles. We learn that she met
Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Mexico, and befriended Pablo O'Higgins
there. She knew and worked with Louise Bourgeois and Louise Nevelson in
New York, and often had dinner with Man Ray in Paris. In Los Angeles, she
exhibited and worked with everyone from Helen Lundeberg to Joseph Albers
Duchamp. And one night, at a
dinner party for novelist Irving Stone, she wryly put Charlton Heston in
Art historian Betty Brown mixes
anecdotes about Wayne's life-and her many famous friends-with analyses of
her remarkably diverse artworks and rich historical research. The text is
based on more than two years of interviews with the artist and
wonderfully illustrated with photographs by Niku Kashef. Ruth Weisberg
wrote the Introduction and Larry Workman, now Director of The June Wayne
Collection, contributed the Afterword. The volume was beautifully
designed by Ruth Ann Anderson.
Afternoons with June is published by Midmarch Arts Press and will be available
for purchase at Sylvia White Gallery during the opening Sunday, April 15

Forum Lounge: Monica Bill Barnes, Suddenly Summer
Thursday, April 5, 5 pm happy hour at
CAF, 7 pm performance at Center Stage Theater ADMISSION IS FREE
Bill Barnes’ choreographed antics and quirky characterizations bring the Rat
Pack to CAF in Suddenly Summer Somewhere.
A whimsical dance theater work, Suddenly Summer
Somewhere is performed by dance duo Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass
of Monica Bill Barnes & Company. Set to live Rat Pack recordings
complete with audience applause, the performance blends deadpan comedy,
space-devouring choreography, and awkwardly strenuous partnering as Barnes and
Bass embody endearing, fallible, and familiar characters reminiscent of Frank
Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. Barnes’ work slips between
comedy and tragedy as the performers struggle along their journey together,
presenting to us both the roughhouse shenanigans and extreme closeness of fast
friends. Monica Bill Barnes will be performing at Center Stage Theater at 7 pm
sharp! We invite you arrive early and join us for a pre-performance happy hour
at CAF--featuring La Tour wine, music, and an opportunity to peruse the
exhibition Fights from Wonder.
New York-based choreographer and performer Monica Bill Barnes
received her B.A. in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego,
San Diego, CA. In 1995, she created Monica Bill Barnes & Company, a
contemporary American dance company. Monica Bill Barnes &
Company has performed in venues in New York City, including the Fall for Dance
at New York City Center, Bates Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, and in
over 30 cities nationally and abroad.
A Virginia native, Anna Bass (Rehearsal Director/Dancer)
received a B.A. in Dance and Theater from James Madison University,
Harrisonburg, VA. In 2003, Bass joined Monica Bill Barnes & Company and

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14TH
6.00 pm. POLLOCK THEATER
Between July 2007 and June 2008, veteran independent film-maker James Benning
built replicas of two iconic American Cabins in a remote part of the High
Sierras: Henry David Thoreau's hut from Walden Pond and the one-room
plywood shack in rural Montana from which Theodore John Kaczynski (the
'Unabomber') conducted his 16-year bombing campaign via the U.S. mail. The
juxtaposition of these two simple structures invokes and implicates
deeply conflicted and enduring foundational American myths concerning the
scope and meaning of personal liberty, civic responsibility and the rule
of law; individual conscience, democracy and civil disobedience;
the transcendental value of nature, wilderness and the god-given right
to exploit natural resources; American exceptionalism,
environmental conservationism and faith in technological progress; the imperative
to make oneself (anew), to 'succeed' and, if necessary, to secede.
James Benning will introduce and screen a 30 minute film related to the
project. Afterwards New York- and Oregon-based artist, Julie Ault and
UCSB faculty member, Dick Hebdige (Art Studio and Film & Media
Studies) will talk about their contributions to the resulting book,
"Two Cabins by James Benning" (A.R.T Press, New York, 2011).
JAMES BENNING has made more than 40 films including "81/2x11"
(1974), "One Way Boogie Woogie" (1977), "American
Dreams" (1984), "Landscape Suicide" (1986), "North on
Evers" (1992), "The California Trilogy" (2000-1), "13
Lakes" (2004), "Ruhr" (2009) and Twenty Cigarettes (2011).
His work has been shown at major Film Festivals and Biennials including
Austin TX, Berlin, Brisbane, Duisberg, Jeonju, London, Ljubljana, New
York,Rotterdam and the Whitney.
JULIE AULT is an artist, curator and editor. One of the co-founders of Group
Material, a New York-based artists' collaborative, she has produced over
50 exhibitions and public projects exploring relationships between
politics and aesthetics. Her publications include Alternative
Art New York, 1965-1985, (University of Minnesota Press, 2002), Come
Alive: The Spirited Art of Sister Corita, (Four Corners Books, 2006),
Felix Gonzalez-Torres, (steidldangin, 2006) and Show and Tell:
A Chronicle of Group Material, (Four Corners Books, 2010).
Copies of Two Cabins by James Benning, (A.R.T. Press, 2011) will
be on sale at the event.

Please feel free to Forward this
message to a friend!
For almost 20 years, Rob
Kapilow has brought the joy and wonder of classical music—and
unraveled some of its mysteries—to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Characterized by his unique ability to create an “aha” moment for his
audiences and collaborators, whatever their level of musical sophistication,
Kapilow’s work brings music into people’s lives: opening new ears to musical
experiences and helping people to listen actively rather than just hear.
"In my 20 years in this business I have never seen a
more innovative musical program help to open minds and change attitudes and
perceptions about classical music."
- Martha H. Jones, President of the Celebrity Series of Boston
“Not since the late Leonard Bernstein has classical music had a
combination salesman-teacher as irresistible as Kapilow. ... He’s as lively
as a top-flight sports announcer and as entertaining as a stand-up comedian.
But he’s also got substance in spades.”
— Kansas City Star
Rob Kapilow’s engaging commentaries are “a knockout combination of
entertainment and education.” Theatermania.com
“Not many people write good music for children, but Rob Kapilow
appears to be an exception. ...Written in an engagingly sophisticated, quasi-
stravinskian musical idiom with no hint of pandering.”
- Heidi Waleson, Billboard
"A wonderful guy who brings music alive!"
- Katie Couric, NBC's Today Show
"An educator, motivational speaker, and game show host, all rolled up
in one...Rob Kapilow's insightful and entertaining programs...often bring
moments of revelation to even the most seasoned aficionados."

IMAGINE THAT!: An Original Dance and
Santa Barbara Dance Institute's Event-Of-The-Year
2012, IMAGINE THAT!, is an original dance/theater piece, written by
Rosalina Macisco and Rod Lathim. The show’s creative team includes: music
producer, Michael Mortilla, voice over artist, Katie Thatcher, and
choreographer, Rosalina Macisco. IMAGINE THAT! will be performed by 300
children from Adelante Charter, El Camino and Solvang Elementary Schools.
The performance will take place on Sunday,
May 20th at 3pm at the Marjorie Luke Theatre,
721 East Cota St.
In addition to the 300 schoolchildren, special
performing guests that evening will be our local schoolteachers, parents, and
community members. Here is an enthusiastic testimonial from one of last year's teachers:
students in my class need special education assistance several times a week.
go to our speech
therapist. These special needs students, through the opportunity of dance with
SBDI, are allowed to be equal and excel with their peers. I have witnessed such
enthusiasm and confidence displayed by these children throughout the school
year. The best confidence-builder
is performing on stage. I
believe it affects them in other life endeavors.” – Chris Bowman, 3rd Grade Teacher
& SBDI Liaison, Solvang Elementary School
THAT! is a dance performance experience for young people to explore the vast
possibilities of what can happen when imagination and creativity are made a
priority. Art, new technology, and social change happen because of our
ability to find creative solutions, dream, and envision a better world. IMAGINE
THAT! explores the work of visionary world
leaders and the simple wonders of letting one's creativity run wild through the
medium of dance. A diverse pallet of music, from vintage through contemporary,
will please both young and old in the audience. The exuberance and joy of the
300+ young dancers from elementary schools in Solvang, Goleta, and Santa
Barbara has made past SBDI productions legendary. IMAGINE THAT! delivers an
inspiring, fun, and exciting dance performance experience for the entire
SBDI uses dance as a vehicle to establish a standard
of excellence in children and to teach a valuable life lesson: that energy,
discipline, hard work, commitment, and joyful concentration lead to
success. For many children, SBDI is a
life-changing event; for all, it is an amazing experience they will never
forget. As a non-profit founded in 2005,
SBDI’s full-year programs have served more than 1,800 children and over 8,000

“Point and shoot” is definitely not in Luther Gerlach’s lexicon.
This nationally known, highly respected photographer prefers to
concentrate on 19th century photographic processes. He has amassed an
extensive collection of antique cameras and lenses, with a special focus
(no pun intended!) on mammoth plate cameras. He spent a year building his
own “golden ratio” 22” x 30” camera that is the largest wet plate camera
being used today. England-born, Luther grew up in Minnesota. He has
resided in California since 1983 and now calls Ventura’s WAV his home.
His work is found in many private and public collections, including that
of President and Mrs. Obama. He has lectured and given demonstrations at
The Getty, Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, Museum of Ventura County
and other institutions. His photographs have appeared in numerous
prestigious publications. Reserve your seat today for what promises to be
a fascinating interview with an artist who says his “soul is in the past
and [his] mind in the future.”

"A Bold Master Plan
for A New Global Financial System"
Occupy World Street is
a masterpiece which deserves to get wide circulation and commitment by world
—Maurice Strong, Secretary-General of the UN Earth Summit, Rio 1992
"A Bold Master Plan for A New Global Financial
People the world over are starting to rise up against a
global financial cabal that has essentially bought governments and left
economies in tatters. In the United States, occupiers gather in an ever-growing
list of cities. In Greece, angry citizens march outside their parliament crying
out “Thieves!” and “Traitors!” as their economy crumbles and pundits discuss
how just long it will take for Portugal, Spain, and other nations to follow
suit. Not all the demonstrators clearly understand the roots of these problems;
not all can articulate solutions. But they know one thing: their lives have
been radically changed, for the worse, by an unsustainable financial paradigm.
In Occupy World Street, Ross Jackson delivers one of the
most incisive, clear descriptions of the global financial practices that have
driven economies—and resources—to the brink of collapse. He also puts forth a compelling,
detailed plan to let sovereign nations
- regain control of their
- reorganize global trade
alliances on more human scale
- gradually phase out global
institutions that have wreaked havoc and replace them with institutions
that support sustainable economies, uphold human rights,and respect
In sum, he has done what few others have
dared to: constructed a specific, implementable plan to reorganize the way
world economies work. It’s a plan that, according to sustainable economics
pioneer Hazel Henderson, “has the potential to unite hundreds of NGOs and
millions of ordinary citizens in the streets behind a single simple proposal
that could change the current dysfunctional game.”
This work is the end result of forty years of looking for
solutions to global problems like overpopulation, unsustainable growth,
ecosystem overload, species extinction, exploitation of the developing
countries, growing inequality, global injustice, and, more recently, global
warming and peak oil. This book asks, "Where are the leverage
points that can break the logjam and create real solutions that could lead to a
radically different kind of global society?
Ross Jackson, an expert in international finance and
operations research, has long been an innovative leader in both the business
and NGO worlds. He is chairman of Gaia Trust, a Danish-based foundation that
supports the Global Ecovillage Network and Gaia Education, as well as hundreds
of sustainability projects in forty countries. He is also director and owner of
Urtekram, Scandinavia’s largest wholesale organic-food company, and former
chairman of Gaiacorp, foreign-exchange consultants and hedge fund
