Brad Nack’s 19th Annual ‘100% Reindeer Art Show’ Scheduled for Dec. 3

The 19th annual Brad Nack "100% Reindeer Art Show" returns for an unveiling of this year’s herd from 6–8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, 2015, at Roy, 7 W. Carrillo Street in Santa Barbara.

Roy has been home to many of Nack's last 18 openings and this year the exhibit will be both as small as always yet bigger than ever.

Like always, the exhibit will feature elegantly framed, small oil paintings of reindeer in the back room for one night only. As an added bonus the front room will feature a series of larger reindeer paintings that will be on display through the end of the year.

“I always envisioned the reindeer paintings as small, whimsical pieces” says Nack “so, now I decided to paint some bigger ones.”

Next year will be the 20th anniversary of the Brad Nack "100% Reindeer Art Show," so it is important to come this year, before all the hype starts and the series really gets going.

The public is invited and encouraged to arrive early to get a free number and return for priority entry at 6 p.m. sharp.

“Get There Early! This is one of the craziest, most lively and most beloved art events of the entire year," says Nathan Vonk of Santa Barbara Art Blog. "And for good reason. Don’t miss this one.” 

Brad Nack is local artist.

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!
