San Marcos High School senior Alexis Ireland’s art work is now on display in the Balboa Building Foyer Gallery as part of First Thursdays.

Ireland was this past spring’s “Best in Show” winner of the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s Art Show. She was also a runner-up as a sophomore.

Ireland specializes in painting in large scale in oils, and is currently working on her AP portfolio.

“Alexis has won many awards for her art work and is one of the finest young artists I have worked with,” teacher Mike Irwin said.

Ireland’ work will be on display in the Balboa Building Foyer Gallery through the end of November. The building is located at 735 State St. in Santa Barbara next to the entrance of Paseo Nuevo.

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!
