> DESCRIPTION

Like an ode, the second annual exhibition at Santa Barbara Contemporary Art Forum’s satellite location at Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara is in praise of, or dedicated to the sea. The title combines two references—limuw, the Chumash Indian translation of “in the sea,” and Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s classic poem, Ode to the Sea—which capture our passionate, compelling relationship to this element of the natural world. An enduring source of inspiration for writers, poets, and visual artists, the sea in its placidity provides solace and in its swell brings tempest and ruin. For the artists included in this exhibition, the sea remains a site of quiet contemplation, mystery, and wonder.
