ART DEPARTMENT EVENTS:
THE STUDENT SUSTAINABILITY COALITION: Call for Student Art The Student Sustainability Coalition is hosting a Community Gathering on West Campus. We would love it if we could get the art students involved and have some artwork displayed. Our theme is based around sustainability, the environment, and community so it would be cool if students have work representing these themes, but all artwork is accepted as long as the artist would like to have it displayed Be mindful that the gathering will take place outside, so that is something to keep the artists aware of…
Students who are interested can contact Lindsey:
ARTIST LECTURE: Megan Geckler
Wednesday, April 30, 4:30pm
Administration Building, Room 211
Upon first look, Megan Geckler's work seems to be digital in nature; the colors
are vibrant and unreal. Most of her installations are created with flagging tape, a mass-produced colorful plastic ribbon utilized on construction sites and assembled by hand alongside crews of assistants. Geckler has been exhibiting in galleries, museums and alternative spaces since 1998, with many shows in the United States including solo shows at the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Creative Artists Agency, and the Pasadena Museum of California Art among others. She has also worked with commercial clients such as Urban Outfitters, Nike and Target. She received her BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and her MFA from Claremont Graduate University.

Rafael Perea de la Cabada works primarily as a visual artist who uses a variety of mediums and processes to interact with planes and spaces where the acts of thinking and making merge seamlessly. His concepts stem from political discomfort, current events, playful thinking, humor, and gratitude, which result in what he calls “hybrid responses and artistic resolutions.” Cabada has exhibited internationally, including most recently Kunst (Art) and Film: Up to Date Art Exhibition; International Contemporary Art: RAFAEL PEREA DE LA CABADA, Liedberg, Germany; and Alien Heartland at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, CA. He is currently creating a new body of work for a solo exhibition at the National Museum of Animals & Society, Los Angeles, CA.
Rafael Perea de la Cabada received his MFA at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was born in Mexico City, Mexico and currently lives and works in Santa Barbara, CA.
The smART Talks program serves to increase awareness of local artists through a series of three annual lectures by Santa Barbara-based artists. The series, begun in 1996, was created in honor of Helen Rosenberg, mother of Susan Rose, and grandmother of Julie Weiner, and honors artists who live and work in the Santa Barbara area.
