Goleta Valley Art Association Celebrates Holiday Season

Annual Picassos4Peanuts at La Cumbre Plaza on December 11

The Goleta Valley Art Association will host its annual Picassos4Peanuts, a festival featuring original art and crafts by local artists on Saturday, December 11, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at La Cumbre Plaza. Sponsors include La Cumbre Plaza, Santa Barbara Voice Magazine.

The show, which features paintings and other items for $300 or less, will be mounted in the outdoor mall area of the plaza and give visitors the opportunity to view and purchase the association’s artwork as well as that of artists affiliated with the La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts, which established three work/display galleries in October 2019.

Tom Henderson’s Summerland Band will provide music from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. Henderson, a well-known watercolorist, has also served on the Santa Barbara City College Lifelong Learning art faculty.

“This is an opportunity for the community to see and shop for wonderful paintings as well as craft objects, cards and jewelry for holiday giving,” said Elizabeth Flanagan, president of the organization. “In past years, this show was presented at the Goleta Library. However, due to the pandemic, that space has not been available to us. In August, we hosted a successful show at La Cumbre Plaza and, once again, we’re very excited to be working in cooperation with the La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts. Several of the LCCCA artists also are members of GVAA.”
