Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation has an exciting new exhibition partnership with the Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara. Surreal By Nature opens to the public on Thursday, December 6, and features artworks from the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Study Collection augmented with a special selection of additional works. The exhibition is curated by Frederick Janka, Executive Director, and John Connelly, principal of JC Connelly, Inc. and will be on view through May 5, 2019.
The exhibition is a hybrid model of public-private partnership between the Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara, the Carolyn Glasoe
Bailey Foundation, with the support of JC Connelly, Inc., and features artworks that focus on elements of nature (or nature-like
elements) that appear abstracted, unearthly or transformed by the artists’ interaction and/or encounter with them.
Of the Surreal By Nature exhibition, Daniel Alvarado, Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara’s General Manager, says, “Our hotel is excited to
be partnering with the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation to share unexpected art encounters with both locals and guests in
the unique space of our hotel and to create a connection to our community that extends beyond our front door.”
Artists include: Kelly Akashi, Matthew Barney, Petra Cortright, Rob Fischer, Penelope Gottlieb, Cole M James, Miranda Lichtenstein, Yassi Mazandi, Ry Rocklen, Peter Rostovsky, David Rathman, Monica Reede, Melanie Schiff, Lisa Schulte, Alec Soth, Kevin
Sudeith, Marc Swanson and Charlotta Westergren.
There will be an opening reception on December 6 from 5-7 p.m. at Hotel Indigo, 121 State St.
