CAF showcases five stand-outs from the tri-counties in our annual Call For Entries (CFE) group exhibition, an opportunity that invited the artists to present newly commissioned work in the galleries. Guest curated by Kim Beil, the exhibition ranges in media, gender, and point of view, reflecting the sophistication and diversity of our region. Artist Leighton Collier Roux will present a performance artwork during the Opening Reception.
Applicants were selected in Fall 2010 by a panel of distinguished jurors made up of artists and art professionals currently working in the visual arts field including: Kim Beil, Independent Art Writer, Santa Barbara, CA; Stephanie Dotson, Artist and Assistant Printmaking Professor at Santa Barbara City College, Santa Barbara, CA; Rachel Gugelberger, Independent Curator, New York, NY; and Annie Wharton, Gallery Director at Annie Wharton Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA.
