The Can(n)on Art Studios

In a small industrial complex in Goleta resides The Can(n)on Art Studios. This is not a business but a private art studio complex, normally visited by appointment only. At the Atkinson Gallery, the Can(n)on group goes public, with its six artists exhibiting their inventive, singular works in a range of media, including sculpture, painting, installation, printmaking, and digital works.

These talented, young artists are representative of the broader contemporary art culture, inclusive and pluralistic, often with a conceptual leaning. Gone are the days of when a student had to choose to be a sculptor or a painter or whatever narrowly defining term was given. While it is certainly fine to work, say, in the painting tradition, many artists are choosing to expand that tradition or selecting the appropriate media for their expression, perhaps just for that particular work. The next project might require an altogether different medium(s) and a completely different aesthetic approach.

The Can(n)on artists are healthily open to a variety of ideas and materials. Our community is the beneficiary of their positive, non-exclusive attitude.

Welcome to the Goleta - good land - future.
