Talks/Lectures
2021 Employment Law Update Webinar
As 2020 finally comes to a close, it’s time to look ahead to the new year and the new employment laws that come with it. In response to the economic upheaval created by the pandemic, there have been significant changes in both federal and state law including changes to family leave, extensions of tax credits and deadlines, and updates to OSHA regulations. Additionally, there have been notable changes in employment law that are unrelated to the pandemic like the controversial AB 5, limiting employers’ ability to classify workers as “independent contractors”. It is critical for employees and employers alike to be aware of these changes. Join us December 8 as leading attorneys Kathy Eppright and Dave Juhnke explain many of these new and modified laws and share the changes you need to make before the January 1 deadline. LOCATION: ZOOM – link will be sent upon registration.

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.

Art Talk
Artist Talk with Zalika Azim
Join the Harold J. Miossi art gallery for our sixth event in our Laboratory Series, a conversation series with Black-identified artists in collaboration with R.A.C.E. Matters San Luis Obispo. Join us for a Zoom webinar and artist talk with Zalika Azim. Zalika Azim (b.1990) is a New York based artist conceptualizing her practice through photography, installation, performance, text and sound. Exploring the mechanisms of personal and collective narratives, her work investigates the ways in which memory, migration, movement and the body are negotiated within the American landscape. In considering how domestic ephemera and language become charged with intelligence beyond what is immediately apparent, Azim’s totemic juxtapositions set out to exist in a liminal state that mines spatial, temporal, and ancestral knowledges. Azim’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including The Dean Collection, The International Center of Photography, The Maryland Institute College of Art, Welancora Gallery, Dorsky Gallery, Diego Rivera Gallery, the Instituto Superior de Arte and the African American Museum in Philadelphia. Her first solo exhibition, in case you should forget to sweep before sunset (2019) was presented with Baxter Street at The Camera Club of New York. Azim holds a BFA in Photography & Imaging from the Tisch School of the Arts, and a BA in Social and Cultural Analysis focused in Africana, Gender and Sexuality Studies from New York University. She is a 2019–2020 Shandaken: Governors Island artist-in-resident, and recently co-curated the NXTHVN inaugural exhibition Countermythologies.
