For its first exhibition of 2012, Atkinson Gallery will focus on abstract art in Santa Barbara with and exhibition called “Persistence.” The ten artists featured are exemplary of the extensive and insistent history of abstraction in our area. Diverse in style, technique and attitude, they are vital components of Santa Barbara’s visual chronicle.
The artists in this exhibition are a mix of native Californians and transplants from across the U.S., England, and the Isle of Man. Each has spent considerable time in their practice, some for several decades. Artists include Philip Argent, Jerrold Burchman, Jane Callister, Dan Connally, Julia Ford, Rollin Fortier, Mary Heebner, Hugh Margerum, Harry Reese, and Joan Tanner.
Atkinson Gallery is honored to show the paintings and sculptures of these exceptional artists. This exhibition will be a vibrant
representation of the rich legacy of abstract art in our area, says curator Dane Goodman.
The show will be on exhibit from January 23-February 16. A reception will be held on Friday, January 27, 5-7 p.m.
