Water is such a prevalent topic in the Tri-Counties, its abundance or dearth.
Water and all of its sources will guide the investigation of Rose Compass as we create an exhibition of intimate gouache paintings for the Wildling Museum in Solvang. The River's Journey: One Year, Six Artists, Ninety-Two Miles will open Febraury 17, 2018 and will run through July 9, 2018. We invite you to follow our journey along the watershed of the Santa Ynez River, the life source that feeds our communities.
