We are proud to be hosting the 12th annual ocean-inspired Student Art Show, “What the Channel Means to Me.” Please join us for the opening exhibit, public reception and awards ceremony on Thursday, March 5th (1st Thursday) from 5-8 pm at the Jodi House Gallery at 625 Chapala Street in Santa Barbara. The goal of the show, which is open to high school students from Carpinteria to Goleta, is to inspire local youth to create art that celebrates the natural beauty and diversity of the Santa Barbara Channel, and for their art to inspire others in our community. This year’s show will be juried by Erika Carter, a local artist, and is sponsored by Trillium Enterprises. The art show winners will receive cash prizes that they can invest in their education. The entire show will remain on display at the Jodi House Gallery for two weeks following the opening, and the winning pieces will also be featured at Channelkeeper’s Blue Water Ball on May 2nd.
