The 2017 Grandparent Portrait Show, the fifth in a series of biennial exhibitions of secondary school student artwork to communities of the greater Santa Barbara area served by the Student Art Fund, will take place at the Faulkner Gallery from April 2 – 30, 2017. The works pay tribute to the artists’ grandparents or other significant elders in a variety of media, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and assemblage.
“Relationships between grandparents and their grandchildren are unique, significant and often fleeting. The Grandparent Portrait show…aims to strengthen and preserve those bonds.”
— Commentator Diane Bock, the NPR show, California Report (KQED)
