Artists in Residence
Piri Friedman Artist
Piri Kaethe Friedman 805.451.1058 firstname.lastname@example.org
My two-dimensional works express moments of abstracted experience via collage, using vintage kimono scraps, quilt cottons or found papers. Recent work incorporates line (ink), building on a dimension of meaning, which I augment with the lost and found of layering. Assemblage and mixed media afford me additional means to evoke a fragment of storyline or personal myth. From childhood the faded grace of old Vermont quilts, Watt’s towers, African textile patterns, illustrations in old children’s books, the design of poetry on a page all moved me. Images from childhood and the present co-mingle to reinterpret references of a lifetime. Thus I draw from a jumbled repository of Picasso, outsider art, Cezanne, antique kimonos and Matisse. Hypnotic geometrics of farmland I saw from the air would become an “Aha!” moment decades later when introduced to Diebenkorn paintings. Nevelson’s wooden box sculptures and de Kooning women reside there among Mexican tin icons, old maps, Japanese and Persian calligraphy, Paul Klee, a flying Pegasus, African masks – the inventory of influences goes on. My art bins overflow with gathered scraps of papers, silks, rusty metal, letter and number forms, broken toys and ice-fishing decoys I seem to need to peruse daily like visual vitamins. In their own time, they rise up to coalesce into a piece. Carol Erickson was my calligraphy teacher in Portland. In Santa Barbara I count myself lucky to have found as teachers Siu Zimmerman, Tony Askew, Susan Tibbles, Karen Brody and Barbara McIntyre. Member: Abstract Art Collective, Santa Barbara Art Association, Carpinteria Arts Council, Goleta Valley Art Association. I have exhibited in Portland, Oregon, and in Santa Barbara: Jewish Community Center, Carpinteria Arts Center Gallery, The Faulkner Gallery, Gallery 113, Cabrillo Arts Pavilion, S.B. Tennis Club curated by Susan Tibbles, Goleta Valley Library, Meisel Gallery, PCC Calligraphy Group, The YES Store, Some of my work is now in private collections.
Erika Kahn Artist
A California painter and printmaker, Erika Kahn experienced the barbarity of the Nazi regime in her youth. Born and raised in Berlin she was banned from her public school at the age of ten and sent to the Theodore Herzl School, an all-Jewish institution. Three years later (1938) she witnessed the destruction of both her synagogue and school. Erika Kahn and her parents managed to escape to New York shortly thereafter. Her grandparents, however, were incarcerated and eventually perished in Auschwitz in 1942. Erika Kahn first exhibited her fine art in 1967 at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since that time her original prints have been included in exhibitions in New York, Houston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Honolulu, Santa Monica and Santa Barbara. She has participated in international exhibitions in Osaka, Japan, Jerusalem, Israel, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She has also served as an art instructor at both Santa Monica College and the Laguna School of Art and Design. Today the art of Erika Kahn is included in the following public collections; Portland Museum of Art, Long Beach Museum of Art, Monterey Museum of Art, University of Michigan and the Hawaii State Foundation of Culture & Art.

Carol Lazar 805-570-5236 Media: Water Color and Chinese Brush Painting
I started painting in 2007 when I took classes at Adult Ed, with Cathy Quiel. I loved it and framed almost every painting. Then I discovered Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy with Sue Mae. In 2011, I took private Brush Painting lessons with Yin Ping. I won the Juror's Award for a painting at the Goleta Library in September, 2011. In October, I sold my painting “The Immigrants” from Gallery 113 in La Arcada Plaza off State Street. Then at the Christmas Show at the Faulkner Gallery December, 2011, I sold two Chinese Brush Paintings, entitled “Purple Peonies” and “Black Birdie.” I have been hanging shows at our own “Gallery 333” since it was founded and have sold quite a few paintings to our residents which included “the Cock”, and “Koi Fish” in 2014 and recently in 2017, I sold 2 “Peony” paintings. I won an award at the Orchid Show at Earl Warren Showgrounds. I also sell privately. I was a member of the Los Padres Water Color Society since 2007, a member of the Goleta Valley Art Association since about 2010, and am still a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association in 2011-17. I have hung 7 paintings at Center of the Heart, and 3 at the Jewish Federation. Please take a look at the Art Books of past shows on display in our Clubhouse foyer which I printed.

Connie Mississippi Artist of Sculpture and Paintings
Connie Mississippi was born in 1941 in the Mississippi Delta. She attended high school in Memphis, TN and received a B.F.A. from the Memphis College of Art. From Memphis she moved to New York City’s Lower East Side where she lived for ten years. During that time she received an M.F.A. in painting and art history from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. From New York she moved to Los Angeles where she lived for twenty five years. And from there she moved to Santa Fe, NM where she has resided for the last ten years. The years in the Mississippi Delta formed her as a person and an artist. She found beauty in simple things and discovered her natural abilities as an artist when she was still a child. Her artistic ability was encouraged by her family and her teachers and after her undergraduate work she went to NYC to pursue graduate studies and experience the life of an artist in an environment rich with culture and an infinite amount of information. Her paintings during these years were hard edged with an influence of Steward Davis and Will Barnett. Three large paintings painted on a silk screened logarithmic grid were purchased by Rockefeller University for their permanent collection. Continue Reading at http://www.conniemississippi.com

DIANA PARADISE began painting at age 27, after a summer of working in London where she was exposed to all the incredible art on display at museums and galleries. Having received her BA in history from Rice, after the European trip she went on to receive her art degree cum laude from a school in Virginia. While raising her sons as a divorcee, she sold many canvases in Houston.

Terre Martin Sanitate Artist
My connection to art has been through my love of art history and travel. Being born in New York City offered great opportunities for studying art throughout high school, college and young adulthood. I have also had the opportunity to travel and visit museums throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I’ve maintained a strong interest in art through classes in collage, assemblage, stained glass, drawing, watercolor and abstract painting. I found my true passion in creating abstract art. I have been showing, selling and receiving awards in juried exhibitions since 2014. I am a member of the Abstract Arts Collective, the Goleta Valley Art Association - Vice President, the Carpinteria Valley Arts Center, Gallery 113, the Santa Barbara Art Association, and Rancho Santa Barbara - Gallery 333. Abstract painting inspires a sense of playfulness, freedom and satisfaction. It adds color to my soul and my world. Painting engages my imagination and I invite the viewer to join in that process.

Frank L. Warren Santa Barbara, CA
FRANK L. WARREN
Worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, and writer for 40 years. He has painted with oils, watercolor, gouache, and acrylics. Most of his work has been with the latter which can be made to perform much like the other media but is less susceptible to damage, dries without change, and does not lift or absorb other colors below it. He has also found great pleasure in drawing with pen, ink, and pencil. Frank graduated from UCSBC* with a BA in art education, studied illustration at Art Center College of Design for one year and during 1982-84 taught graphic design and illustration at Cal State University Dominguez Hills. Awards include the Los Angeles Illustrators Society, the Manhattan Beach, Santa Barbara and Goleta Valley Art Associations, and the EAA annual art show. He has a painting in the Smithsonian permanent collection and 11 in the EAA museum at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. A reproduction of a third reposes in the Planes of Fame museum at Chino, CA.
