Jane Gottlieb’s Fantasy Gardens Exhibition at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden!
April 13 @ 9:00 am - July 5 @ 6:00 pm$12
From April 13 to July 4, the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens (1212 Mission Canyon Rd.) will display Jane Gottlieb’s unique combination of paint, colors, and photography in a four-month-long exhibit, the “Fantasy Gardens.” Gottlieb started exploding her color sills and altering reality over 35 years ago, and for the last 25 years, she been scanning her one-in-a-million prints and collection of Kodachrome slides and creating an idyllic vision in a voice that is distinctly her own.
Countless art museums and institutions throughout the world have honored Gottlieb’s inventive crafts, and over 100 large artworks are currently on loan for ten years at UC Los Angeles and UC Santa Barbara. Her creative voice has inspired two novels to be written about her, and she has been the spotlight feature of various magazines, such as the Los Angeles Times, Elle Magazine, and American Photographer Magazine.
Displaying Gottliebt’s talents, “Fantasy Gardens,” will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Pritzlaff Conservation Gallery and the 14 masterpieces included are for sale with a generous percent of the proceeds benefiting the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens. A private reception will be held on Thursday, April 13, to launch this display of Gottlieb’s ability to transform the real-life landscapes of Europe, Bali, and the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden into dream-like wonderlands.
The exhibition is free with paid admission to the Garden ($12.00 for adults)!
