The Abstract Eight opened its first show – of many I am confident – to good reviews. The exhibition, “Purely Abstract” was curated by Susan Tibbles and was held from January 10 to February 8, 2014, at the SB Tennis Club Gallery. “Three Days in the Desert”, “Fred and Ginger”, and “Stiff” were my entries. The Abstract Eight is a new group of abstract artists in Santa Barbara who plan on exhibiting together throughout the upcoming years. Members include Karen Pendergrass, Maria Miller, Scott Miller, and Sara Lytle.
