The Santa Barbara Printmakers evolved from the Monotype Guild, founded in Santa Barbara in 1989. The small group of artists who produced one-of-a-kind hand pulled prints has become a membership organization representing over 100 artists from many surrounding counties. These artists are dedicated to promoting and producing work that uses hand and press printing techniques for the purposes of artistic exploration and expression. These include etching, monotype, woodblock, collagraph, linocut, clay, lithography and digital programming.

About Art at the JCC
Artist and collector Eli Luria (z"l) launched Art at the JCC in 1999 to provide high-caliber, strongly-themed exhibits for the Santa Barbara community. The exhibit openings often feature gallery talks and panels with artists, curators and collectors that draw lively crowds.
Art at the JCC is a program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. Through its exhibition and outreach programs, Art at the JCC honors and shares the universality of Jewish values, history and culture through various forms of artistic expression. The purpose of Art at the JCC is to provide Central Coast and other artists from all disciplines, the opportunity to bring their work to the Santa Barbara community. Because art is a universal language, our programs will cross all boundaries of religion, race, gender and age, and strive to maintain communication. Its mission is to promote identification and connectedness to the Jewish community and the community at large.
Gallery Hours Monday-Thursday 9-5; Friday 9-3:30
