The works of Westmont art faculty are being showcased at one of Santa Barbara’s premiere art galleries Dec. 6- Jan. 20. An opening reception for “Mentors and Makers: The Artists of Westmont College” is Thursday from 5-8 p.m. at Sullivan Goss, at 11 East Anapamu Street.
The show features full-time studio faculty Meagan Stirling, Nathan Huff and Scott Anderson, and part-time faculty Sommer Roman, James Daly and Chris Rupp.
“In our continuing commitment to exhibit the work of talented emerging artists alongside important established and historically significant artists, Sullivan Goss is excited to host an exhibition of works by the art department faculty of Westmont College,” the gallery statement reads. “The art department at Westmont College has always had an outsized influence on the art scene of the region, but tucked away in its bucolic Montecito campus, it can be easy to overlook how much concentrated talent is found there. Currently, Westmont’s arts faculty consists of some of the most intriguing, adventurous, and distinct artists working in and around Santa Barbara, though their work is making waves over a much larger area.”
