John Hood, Curator
The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission presents, The Audacity of
Process: An Exploration in Diverse Practices, an exhibition of regional artists
curated by John Hood, Professor of Art, Allan Hancock College, and Arts
Commissioner from the 5th District, from November 21 through February 10 at
the Betteravia Government Center, 511 E. Lakeside, Santa Maria. The opening
reception will be Friday, Dec. 9th from 4-6pm.
The Audacity of Process, is an exhibition exploring and revealing the variety of
process modalities in the work of Peg Grady, Carey Reimer, Amanda
Hoopingarner, Larry Delinger, Bob Burridge, Autumn Jennings, Dave Passage
and Karen Carson. This local talent converges in an exhibition that varies greatly
in style and subject matter.
Curator John Hood said, “I’ve brought these artists together to highlight the rich
diversity of something often overlooked, process. Each artist brings with them a
unique set of approaches, which as a teacher, both intrigues and inspires my
own work. I have asked each to share their experiences of the art-making
process. Most artists don’t necessarily offer up these behind-the-scene scenarios
for a variety of reasons. I am reminded of how the Parisian avant-garde of the
early 20th Century often locked their studio doors to keep Picasso away. The fear
was that he would learn of their process and take it to his studio and proceed to
do it better than they ever could have imagined. These eight exhibiting artists
demonstrate a bold and adventurous sequence of events which are captured and
finalized in their current works. I hope observers will take the time to investigate
and appreciate what it takes to create visual art.”
