Water is such a prevalent topic in the Tri-Counties, its abundance or dearth. 

  • Water and all of its sources have guided the investigation of Rose Compass. We have created an exhibition titled The River's Journey: One Year, Six Artists, Ninety-Two Miles. Consisting of intimate gouache paintings and originally made for the Wildling Museum in Solvang, the show will now travel to the city of Santa Barbara where it will be hosted in three new venues.  Santa Barbara City Hall Gallery is installed and open at 735 Anacapa Street with the reception on First Thursday, September 6th, 2018. Another iteration focusing on the group's oil paintings will open at Sullivan Goss Gallery in October and Westmont Museum will have more small images in January of 2019. We invite you to follow our journey along the watershed of the Santa Ynez River, the life source that feeds our communities.
