Spotlight On the Jane Deering Gallery

Offering an alternative to the typical white-cube gallery, Jane Deering, owner of the eponymous space in Montecito, has turned her part-time home into a gallery space celebrating the contemporary art of two coasts and two continents. Between January and April she lives in Montecito, dividing the remainder of her time between Massachusetts, where her home is also a display space for contemporary artists, and London.

Her cross-continental background is the basis for the new exhibition, Other Visions + Other Strategies: New Directions in European and American Contemporary Art. Her goal is to give European artists, nine of whom are in this exhibit, more exposure in the States, while also showcasing the best and brightest of America’s East and West Coast talent. Enhancing the contemporary art scene of every one of her hometowns while mixing as many regions, artists, and media as possible is Jane’s forte, and she shows it in her choices of painting, sculpture, paper art, and much more for her Santa Barbara debut.

The Jane Deering Gallery is open by appointment only, seven days a week. Call 969-5376 or (917) 902-5376, see, or email
