1st Thursday at Canary Hotel to Feature Local Artist Maria Rendon

Stop by Coast Restaurant & Bar for live music and extended happy hour

Stop by the Canary Hotel, 31 W. Carrillo St., and take in Santa Barbara’s 1st Thursday art scene downtown.

This month, the Canary Hotel will feature local artist Maria Rendon, kicking off the exhibit from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. March 3 in the hotel’s Coast Restaurant & Bar. Enjoy live music by Fitz Minor and extended happy hour.

Rendon was born and raised in Mexico City. She received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts at Universidad Anahuac in Mexico and a degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

For the past 14 years, she has created imagery for the printed page, exhibited in galleries and taught at her alma mater. She lives and works in Santa Barbara.

Her work has been featured in top publications such as Harper’s,, National Public Radio, Reader’s Digest and The Washington Post to name a few. The exhibit will remain on display in the restaurant throughout the month for the public to enjoy.

Coast in and spend First Thursdays at Canary Hotel — it’s guaranteed to be a deliciously artful experience! At Coast, you’ll fall in love with the food, dine in style, and feel at home.

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!
