On the cusp of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Opal Restaurant and Bar at 1325 State St. will be hosting a show in its newly remodeled side room.

Starting this Thursday, Jan. 24, and running through Feb. 4, photographer Vince Gonzales will display photography at Opal from his popular TECH ART series.

TECH ART explores the design and beauty of antique motion picture equipment. Gonzales has spent years documenting cameras, projectors and all tools used in the art of filmmaking. Many of these items have been photographed with a sense of urgency before they were replaced by newer technologies.

Gonzales has shown this series at two well-received TECH ART exhibitions at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He also exhibited this work at the Hollywood Entertainment Museum, the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Museum in Washington, D.C.

— Richard Yates is a co-owner of Opal Restaurant and Bar.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
