Ruminate over some mulch-y art on March 15 from 5–7 p.m. as Art From Scrap Gallery opens the spring-inspired exhibit, MULCH.

Featured art includes painting, ceramics, woodworking, horticulture (yes, horticulture), printmaking and assemblage by artists Scott Chatenever, Jaime Coxon, Francis Dawson, Barbara McIntyre, Judy Nilsen, Mary Price, Ron Robertson, Pali X Mano and Pamela Zwehl-Burke.

Dawson is the really mulch-y one. His live art pieces incorporate walls made of succulents and other plant materials that bring nature of a usually horizontal plane into a vertical, framed piece of art. Dawson works as a landscape designer and an artist (and a combination of the two of course).  If you think you’ve seen Dawson’s work before, then maybe you have—he is the mastermind behind the plant-based sculpture “Stochastic Probability” at the Jardin de las Granadas exhibition space in downtown Santa Barbara.

Come enjoy this exhibition focused on all aspects of spring: decay, new growth and rebirth. The gallery will be open through April 13.
