Call for Entries for County’s ‘Art in the Parks’

Submission deadline is Sept. 1 for the juried exhibition

Landscape artists needed! If you’re an artist who celebrates the outdoors, and particularly our diverse Santa Barbara County parks, we want to see your work.

The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, with the Santa Barbara County Park Foundation and the County Art in Public Places Committee, is organizing the exhibition “Art in the Parks” to open Thursday, Oct. 7.

The juror for the exhibition is Scott Canty, curator/director of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, senior curator for the Los Angeles World Airports exhibition program, director of the Department of Cultural Affairs Slide Registry, and director of exhibitions at the Palos Verdes Art Center in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Santa Barbara County Parks is the steward of more than 2,000 acres of parks, beaches, open spaces, historical landmarks and miles of trails all over the county. The Santa Barbara County Park Foundation’s mission is to sustain and enhance regional parks, trails and open spaces through community partnerships and volunteer efforts and serves as a vehicle for private donations that can supplement public funding for our parks and open spaces. The exhibition will celebrate the beauty and diversity of these unique resources with a wide variety of artist styles and media.

The exhibition, open to all residents of California, will be seen in two venues: Sept. 27 through Feb. 18, 2011, at the Channing Peake Gallery in Santa Barbara and Feb. 21, 2011, through May 20, 2011 at the Betteravia Gallery in Santa Maria. The entry deadline is Sept. 1.

There will be cash awards totaling $500, and works entered may be featured in a 2011 Santa Barbara County Parks calendar.

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!
