Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative and Santa Barbara Museum of Art Present:

Mixed-Media Workshop: Van Gogh and Matisse walk into a bar...

Next Week: Thursday March 10, 5:30-7pm 

Join the Santa Barbara Museum of Art at the CAW for a free art workshop exploring the connections between Henri Matisse and his predecessor, Vincent van Gogh.  Inspired by the current SBMA exhibition Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources, guests create mash-up masterpieces by cutting and collaging colorful paper and details of Van Gogh’s brushstrokes into organic compositions that echo Matisse’s later work. Sip a glass of French wine and enjoy this creative dialogue between two of the world’s most famous artists.

Instructors: Kendall Pata and Mayela Rodriguez
Participants must be age 21 and over.

Diana Small Presents:

Who Knows What You Are

March 24, 25, 26, 31 April 1, 2 — 8pm.
Written and directed by Diana Small
With original pop songs by Diana Small 

Who Knows What You Are is a dramatized song cycle, featuring original music, film, and theater. Centered around a high-stakes OB/GYN exam, interchanging female protagonists birth the world, are drafted for the war, plant pollinators, become entertainers, encounter death and choose love. It’s pop music and ocean forward. 

This show emerged out of the constraints of the pandemic (what could collaborative artists create together while keeping physical distance?) and the existential question that emerged: When we give meaning & purpose to suffering, are we encouraging preventable suffering to persist? This show acknowledges and wrestles with the pain of the current moment, while also offering the hope that comes from choosing human connection against all odds.
