Abstract Concepts Frame JCC’s Art Exhibit Fundraiser

The Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara’s Art at the JCC will host an reception for its newest exhibition, the Abstract Art Collective’s 3rd Annual ArtSEE fundraiser, 2-4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 4.

The Abstract Art Collective exhibit and sale, which benefits SEE International, will be on display June 4-Aug. 18 at the Jewish Federation’s Bronfman Family Jewish Community Center, 524 Chapala St.

SEE International is a nonprofit, humanitarian organization whose volunteer eye surgeons work to restore sight to disadvantaged blind individuals worldwide.
ArtSEE features a 100-piece GRID WALL display of original 10-inch-by-10-inch abstract artworks, created and donated by AAC members and offered for sale at $100 each on a first-come-first-choose basis.

All proceeds from GRID WALL sales will be donated to SEE International.
Also on display is a juried exhibition of larger abstract works by AAC members. Juror for the exhibit is Daniel Barnett, director/art instructor for Santa Barbara High School's Visual Arts and Design Academy.

Twenty-five percent of sales from the juried pieces will be donated to benefit the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara’s community programs.

The ArtSEE exhibit includes a range of abstract media – painting, assemblage/collage, printmaking, photography and digital art.

Abstract art encompasses as many processes as there are artists.

One artist may work in an intuitive arc, not knowing how a piece will begin or end. Another may have a defined concept and their work isn't finished until that concept is expressed to their satisfaction.

The juried exhibit and GRID WALL art sale will be ongoing during the exhibition.

For regular viewing hours, the Jewish Federation’s Bronfman Family Jewish Community Center is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Friday. For best visiting hours, call 957-1115.

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!
