The Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art explores the fraught relationship between humankind and the environment with a number of events to coincide with the exhibition “Watershed: Contemporary Landscape Photography,” which is on view through March 23 in the museum.
The exhibition highlights several of the country’s most celebrated contemporary photographers, including William Christenberry, Gabriel Orozco and Joel Meyerowitz, and two of Southern California’s best-known photographers, Macduff Everton and Bill Dewey.
The lower level of the museum will feature paintings by Rose Compass, a group of six artists with six differing techniques and from six diverse backgrounds with a passion for painting and a love of nature to create and explore through gouache. “Rose Compass: Paintings of Santa Barbara’s Watershed,” which features the works of Connie Connally, Nina Warner, Nicole Strasburg, Holli Harmon, Libby Smith and Pamela Zwhehl-Burke, will be on display until June 22.
