Impoverished Vision: Abstraction to the Rescue is the latest exhibition to grace the walls of Channing Peake Gallery from August 25 until October 17.

Presented by Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, a kick off reception will coincide with 1st Thursday on September 4, from 5-8 p.m.

The show is curated by John Hood, artist and professor of art at Allan Hancock College. The exhibiting artists include: Adrienne Allebe, Larry Dilenger, Cass Ensberg, Peggy Ferris, Felicia Kincaid, Philip Koplin, Hugh Margerum, Carey Reimer, Natalie Romero, Juan Manuel Perez Salazar, Rick Stich, Ariana Sariañana, and Marlene Struss. The pieces range from painting to mixed media photography, and sculpture.

“Ever since artists began to stray away from Naturalism over 150 years ago we have seen a more personal and conceptual approach to visual communication. These 12 artists have moved away from realism and in the process offer up an abundance of views,” said the curator, John Hood.

Impoverished Vision was first exhibited at the Betteravia Government Gallery, however, moving the exhibition from Santa Maria has allowed more artists from South County to be included.

Channing Peake Gallery is located on the 1st floor of the County Administration Building at 105 E. Anapamu St.
