MCASB showcases five stand-outs from the tri-counties in our annual Call For Entries (CFE) group exhibition, an opportunity that invites the artists to present newly commissioned work in the galleries.
Applicants were selected in Fall 2012 by a panel of distinguished jurors made up of art professionals currently working in the visual arts field including: Jill Dawsey, Associate Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; Cesar Garcia, Founder and Director of The Mistake Room, Los Angeles, CA, and the current U.S. Commissioner for the 13th International Cairo Biennale, Egypt; and Ruba Karib, Curator, Sculpture Center, New York, NY.
Bloom Projects: Ro Snell, All that is left
Santa Barbara-based artist Ro Snell has been invited to create a new body of work for MCASB’s Fall 2013 iteration of Bloom Projects. All that is left will examine what remains, both physical and abstract, after a process or a period of time. The project considers what is left, not only in the material sense but also in the mind. Using assembled objects, re-contextualized organic forms, and combined printed images, the body of work will be an installation concerning perception, disintegration, emotion, and recollection.
Born in Malvern, England, UK, Snell currently lives and works in Santa Barbara, CA. She received her MFA from George Washington University, Washington, DC, and BFA from Brighton University of Art, England, UK. She has exhibited at The Arts Fund Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA; Atkinson Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA; and Tinsmiths, Ledbury, England, UK.
