A Conversation about the Art of Collage

FREE. Please RSVP.

The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to present a conversation about the art of collage with three prominent members of Santa Barbara’s art community. Please join us as they share their personal experiences and knowledge of collage techniques and history.  Discover how and why each came to embrace this unique art form as well as the special role of collage in the history of art in Santa Barbara.

  • Jeremy Tessmer is the Gallery Director of Sullivan Goss – An American Art Gallery where he is also curator of nineteenth and twentieth-century American art and sculpture.
