Breathing Space: Recent Prints by Bay Hallowell

July 1 to August 5 (noon), 2016
Architectural Foundation Gallery
Opening Reception Friday, July 1, 5-7 p.m.

The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce a new exhibition, Breathing Space: Recent Prints by Bay Hallowell. An opening reception with the artist, music by the Jaybirds String Band and refreshments will be held on Friday, July 1 from 5 – 7 pm. All are welcome. The exhibition will continue through Friday, August 5 (noon).

The phrase Breathing Space connotes a physical environment, a state of mind, a moment in time, as well as the act of breathing. Hallowell explores intersections of these meanings in vibrant, multi-layered monoprints created with oil-based inks on Arches 88 and BFK Rives paper using stencil and viscosity techniques. Lush gardens, architectural elements, the experience of breathing and of meditating, and a sense of both inner and outer space are all subtly invoked in this diverse series of unique, light-suffused prints.

Hallowell received a B. A. in painting and drawing at Bennington College (VT) where she also studied art criticism. After working as a museum educator/curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh) and the Philadelphia Museum of Art and teaching at the Tyler School of Art (Temple University), she studied printmaking in Santa Barbara with Siu and Don Zimmerman, Elaine LeVasseur, and Michael McCabe. She is a member of the LA Printmaking Society, the Santa Barbara Printmakers, and the Inkspots of Ventura.

The AFSB Gallery is located in the historic Acheson House on the corner of Garden and East Victoria Streets in Santa Barbara. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 2pm, and by appointment.
