First Thursday Art Walk reception on March 7 from 5 to 8pm

The work in this exhibition is about the way a piece of art can command a room and set the tone. Clear blue skies give way to stormy weather and introspective periods. Not all doom and gloom... its about the good times, too. Emotive abstracts make up the majority of work in the show, with Sophie Cooper's realistic urban landscapes of New York City bringing the room back to earth.  Participating artists: Karen Zazon, Michael O’Guinn, Sophie Cooper, Madeline Garrett, Patrick Hall, Pat McGuinnis, Rick Doehring, Marlene Struss, Karin Aggeler and Penny Arntz.

10 West is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara just 1/2 block from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The gallery specializes in Santa Barbara and regional artists. The artwork tends toward non-traditional genres with various degrees of abstraction and surrealism, joined by depictions of peaceful koi ponds, impressionist landscapes and figurative work. You'll find oil and acrylic paintings, ceramic vessels and sculpture, bronze and stone sculpture, textural wall pieces and contemporary pottery from Mata Ortiz, Mexico, which is on display from mid November through mid January.

A juried, artist-owned cooperative with 28 current members, 10 West Gallery is directed by founder, Jan Ziegler.
