Ever wish you could go back in time to the literati and artistic salons of yesteryear, enjoying intellectual discourse with a side of vino? Santa Barbara Art Fund‘s Salon 4: Off the Wall is as close as one can get to such an experience.
A work by Nicholas Gazin
Salon 4: Off the Wall- Where Millennium Generation Artists Sell is an evening of artistic discussion and pleasurable company. Held at the home of Cayetana Conrad on Sunday, September 9 from 4-6 p.m., this event will showcase the works of artist and illustrator Nicholas Gazin and his artist/animator sister Penelope Gazin (they also happen to be Conrad’s children). Their works will promote a discussion on the artist’s role in product branding, social media’s advantages for artists and different, more accessible outlets for their range of work. This discussion will be mediated by Ted Mills and held in a home saturated in artistic prowess— the Summerland home was originally owned by Cubist painter Howard Warshaw.
Step back in time with this salon, hosted by the most gracious of hosts in a setting sure to stir ideas and artistic impulses. Brander Winery will act as wine-tender for the night, providing liquid inspiration for discourse. As Joy Sterling once said, “Artists and poets still find life’s meaning in a glass of wine.”
