smART Talk | Michael Matheson

Michael Matheson will speak about his work that combines historical references to folk art, Americana, and popular culture in large woodblock prints as well as intimate black-and-white watercolors with a contemporary twist.

Inspired by MCASB's summer exhibition Barry McGee: SB Mid Summer Intensive, the 2018 smART Talks series features local emerging artists whose work references urban culture in distinctly different ways.

Michael Matheson discovered his passion for print making while studying at Santa Barbara City College and continued his education at Art Center College of Design Pasadena. He is currently managing the woodshop at the Department of Art at UCSB and curating art shows at The French Press.

Artists in the 2018 series of smART Talks are represented by Sullivan Goss - An American Gallery as part of Sullivan Goss Extracurricular (SG:Xc), a gallery program taking advantage of off-site pop up opportunities to build a market for the work of exciting young, emerging artists.

The smART Talks lecture series serves to increase awareness of regional contemporary art through a series of three talks a year by local artists about their work, careers, and creative process. The series, begun in 1996, was created in honor of Helen Rosenberg, mother of Susan Rose, and grandmother of Julie Weiner, and honors artists who live and work in the Santa Barbara area.
