The Santa Barbara Visual Artists’ 2nd Fridays Art at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club is back again for the month of May. The Santa Barbara Tennis Club (2375 Foothill Rd.) gallery hosts an exhibition once a month to showcase new artists from the area. This month’s reception takes place May 12 from 5:30 –7:30 p.m. and the exhibition will be on display until June 2. The gallery is curated by Susan Tibbles, gallery director and curator, each month has a universalized theme or concept that all the art pieces apply to.
The Santa Barbara Visual Artists organization was formed in 2013 by a group of artists who were newcomers to Santa Barbara. This group of newcomers discovered their passion for art together and formed a collective to promote art alongside supporting artists and other social and charitable endeavors in the Santa Barbara community.
The artists that comprise the collective are Jan Baker, Sally Blevins, Catey Low Dunkley, Ann Elliott, Ivanie Finsvik, Patricia Franco, Britt Friedman, Karen Frishman, Annie Guillemette, Jane Hurd, Kenneth McAshan, Soosan Marshall, Gloria Peyrat, Maria Thayer and Allison Wells.
