The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce a new exhibition of prints by Meagan Stirling titled “Crack Shot.”

An opening reception with the artist will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 8, 2016, and all are welcome. The exhibition will continue through May 13, 2016.

Fascinated and inspired by American culture and the theme of safety, Stirling creates one-of-a kind prints using an amalgam of printmaking techniques including monotype, lithography and serigraphy.

Her compelling compositions, infused with echoes of pain and grief, layer and blend imagery derived from wind energy turbines, shooting range targets and her memories.

Stirling received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

She has taught art at Whitworth University, the Beijing International College and the University of Colorado Denver. Currently, Stirling is an assistant professor of art at Westmont College.

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!
