Datebook Seasonal Events for September

Posted on Aug 27 by SEASONS Magazine

Ongoing Scenery, Story, Spirit: American Painting and Sculpture

This presentation draws on the rich holdings of American paintings and sculptures in the collection of Santa Barbara Museum of Art. In both idealized and naturalistically rendered landscapes, scenes of everyday life or meticulously detailed images of everyday objects, the exhibition also narrates an important chapter in American cultural history that witnessed the Civil War and its aftermath, the expansion of national boundaries, the closing of the western frontier and the transformations wrought by the emergence of new technologies at the dawn of the 20th century.

Annie Lapin’s artworks are mined from a wide variety of art historical references and search for a place where image and memory become another layer that viewers experience as non-verbally as paint and canvas.
