Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative Presents Color & Light
Color & Light brings together four area artists: John Babcock, Kathleen Crocetti, Heidi Hybl and Stacy Frank, whose works explore the mercurial nature of light and color to convey emotion and delight the viewer. An ambitious exhibition of 98 works of art, spanning throughout the Bank’s five countywide banking offices, Color & Light features two and three-dimensional works, including large paper and resin sculptures, glowing neon mixed media works, meditative oil paintings and smaller, intimate collages.
A pioneer of the paper art movement and 2014 Santa Cruz County Artist of the Year, John Babcock, incorporates specific papermaking fibers which reflect light differently to create unique characteristics in his works. The resulting imagery changes focus; some images recede or appear as the viewer moves from side to side in front of the work or as the light of day changes. Some of his large format paper works have been constructed into 3 dimensional sculptures, which appear both delicate and concrete at the same time.
Also inspired by shifting color and light, Kathleen Crocetti incorporates glass, encaustic, resin and the use of neon lighting in her two dimensional wood “light boxes” which can be displayed “lit” or “unlit”. Kathleen’s light boxes and constructions of towering resin, encaustic and neon sculptures in each of the Bank’s five locations take on a split identity; each having a completely separate and vibrant personality and new aesthetic that comes alive when illuminated, revealing mysterious shapes and patterns cast by a neon that are otherwise unseen.
Reductive abstractionist, Heidi Hybl, works in response to the mercurial lighting conditions she experiences living in the Coastal hills, pushing layers of color to the point where the resulting image appears as an ephemeral moment in time and is reduced to the two components of color and light. Her meditative work is testimony of a close involvement with her environment.
Printmaker Stacy Frank’s vibrant and playful Stripes and Linear monoprints explode with color. Created using collograph, drypoint, carborundum and ghost printing, the Stripes series are mounted on cradled panels and feature jewel tones with mesmerizing color combinations. In her Linear series, Stacy deconstructs and rearranges her stripes to invent one of a kind collages. Each piece is unique, yet they amount to a cohesive collection of imagery.
Curated by Mary Anne Carson, Director of the Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative, Color & Light is on display at all Santa Cruz County Bank branches through January 17, 2017.
Exhibiting artist Heidi Hybl states, “These paintings are abstracted landscapes….Colors are delicate or striking depending on the season, climate, or on the time of day. I reduce these visual, auditory and tactile experiences to light, motion, and simplified form.”
John Babcock shares, “I speak about my work as a documentation of feeling, emotional responses to an idea… I take in and reflect on earth’s patterns, the beat of the music in the studio, or the ripples in the sand at the ocean’s edge. When working on the concept for a piece, I explore that feeling and work to illuminate the essence of the idea.”

RENOWNED UC SANTA CRUZ GEOLOGIST GARY GRIGGS
TO GIVE ‘PERILS IN PARADISE’ TALK JAN. 19 AT RIO THEATRE
As part of the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History’s biannual special speaker series, renowned UC Santa Cruz scientist Dr. Gary Griggs will present “Perils in Paradise” Jan. 19 at the Rio Theatre, a talk that will explore Santa Cruz County’s vulnerability to natural disasters, especially in the era of global warming.
A Distinguished Professor of Earth Sciences and Director of the Institute of Marine Sciences at UCSC, Dr. Griggs is the first recipient of the Museum’s annual Laura Hecox Naturalist Award for his contributions to connecting people with the natural world in ways that empower them to better appreciate, understand and protect it.
Dr. Griggs will explain how the geographical features of Santa Cruz County make it highly susceptible to earthquakes, floods, landslides, tsunamis and other natural disasters. He points to the flood plains adjacent to many of the county’s cities, a shoreline that features both bluffs and low-lying areas, and mountainous reaches containing steep slopes.
Santa Cruz County’s geologic history and terrain is the product of 100 million years or so of plate collision and uplift, of subduction and seduction, and folding and faulting,” Griggs said. “It’s the basis for all of the geologic hazards we have to contend with, those damaging and sometimes disastrous events that periodically interrupt paradise.”
Among the events Griggs will explore include the Loma Prieta and San Francisco earthquakes of 1989 and 1906; the San Lorenzo River floods of 1955 and 1982; and impacts of high tides and storm surges on coastal areas during El Niño years. Global warming threatens to increase the region’s vulnerability over time.
“The Museum is proud to host this opportunity for our community to learn more about why we
face these dangers in Santa Cruz County and what the future of the natural world around us
may hold,” said Executive Director Heather Moffat. “We hope you’ll join us for an educational
evening featuring one of our region’s most respected coastal geologists.”
WHAT: “Perils in Paradise,” featuring Gary Griggs
WHEN: 7-8:30 p.m. Jan. 19. (Doors open at 6 p.m.)

Join us for a Community Showing of the film Crossing Bhutan followed by discussion about Bhutan, an opportunity to meet the team, a book signing with Terri Schneider and more.
Many know Bhutan as the last Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom and the only country in the world to use Gross National Happiness as its primary yardstick for progress. Drawn by the allure of this enigmatic kingdom, four veteran athletes attempt an unprecedented human-powered, border-to-border crossing of Bhutan, hoping to experience Bhutan’s policy of “GNH” first hand. When the demands of the grueling 32-day, 485-mile journey push the team beyond their breaking point, they must confront the challenge inherent in walking what Buddhist’s call the Middle Path – embracing the benefits of our fast-paced modern life while still honoring the ancient traditions and values that make Bhutan so unique.
Proceeds from this event will go to Santa Cruz High School Cross Country team as well as Bhutan Association of Women Entrepreneurs. For more information and tickets go to http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2715782
