The River's Journey Project, developed by six artists calling themselves Rose Compass, is a collaboration telling a BIG story about the Santa Ynez River and watershed through some really SMALL gouache paintings. The River's Journey: One Year, Six Artists, Ninety-two miles showed at the Wildling Museum in Solvang earlier this year and is now reconfigured, redesigned, added to and installed at the Santa Barbara City Hall Gallery hosted by the Santa Barbara Office of Arts and Culture.
Rose Compass artists include Connie Connally, Holli Harmon, Libby Smith, Nicole Strasburg, Nina Warner, and Pamela Zwehl-Burke. Ourcollective serves to connect our community to their limited and valuable water resources.
Come learn more about the water source that feeds our community with this engaging exhibit.
