Art Exhibit - "Rosey 'N' Barb - Still At It After All These Years"
Barbara and Robert “Rosey” Rosenthal, award winning printmakers, have been art partners since 1980. They are well-known throughout our county and California for their art and for demonstrating printmaking. So often showing and demonstrating together, they are often thought of as one person, “RoseyBarb,” but each has his/her own point of view and explores different media. For this unique Art Central show Barbara is showing her rich, landscape paintings and Rosey his colorful, gouache paintings. They are so often asked to show their graphic art that they welcomed a chance to exhibit work in other media." DUE TO COVID-RESTRICTIONS WE WILL NOT BE HOSTING AN ARTIST RECEPTION. We ask you to show your support and appreciation by stopping by during our store hours to enjoy this colorful exhibit in our gallery. We are limiting customers to 5 in the store at a time, everyone must use a mask and sanitizer (sanitizer provided at the door).

Art Exhibit--ARTHUR BEAUMONT: Art of the Sea
The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is delighted to announce that Arthur Beaumont: Art of the Sea--an exhibit of 53 paintings chronicling the accomplishments of the US Navy, from the USS Constitution to atomic bomb tests and expeditions to the North and South Poles—will be at the Museum for just six months, the last show on the West Coast before it leaves for the East Coast. Beaumont used Impressionist techniques in painting the stunning images in this exhibit and in capturing the majesty of the oceans and the vessels that sail them. In addition to Beaumont’s paintings, the show will be accompanied by a book of his life and art, also entitled Arthur Beaumont: Art of the Sea, written by Beaumont’s son Geoffrey Campbell Beaumont and published by The Irvine Museum in Irvine, California. Then, on January 21, 2021, the author will offer a presentation about the exhibit and his father’s life as part of SBMM’s distinguished lecture series. Arthur Beaumont (1890-1978) was born in Norfolk County, England and came to the US in 1908 to study art at Berkeley, before moving to Los Angeles and opening his first commercial art studio in 1917. After studying further with other artists in the US and Europe and teaching art and watercolor painting, Beaumont received a commission as a lieutenant in the Navy and became the “Artist of the Fleet” by 1933. His earliest paintings showed naval vessels in various settings and states of preparedness, but following Pearl Harbor, his work supported the US war effort and reflected dramatic life or death struggles in the Pacific and, in 1944, he was given the official title of War Correspondent. Following the end of World War II, Beaumont became the official artist for Operation Crossroads, documenting the Navy’s first tests of the nuclear bomb, and continued to travel with and paint for the US Navy on missions to China and Japan. In addition to his work during the Korean War.
