• This week at Studio E (219 Gray Ave.), A Spiritual Vision Through India-an exhibit of recent works captured on film during a trek through the village of Rishikesh by photographers Cil de Kolda and Andrea Slaby-will be on display to raise funds for Ramana’s Orphanage, a village located in a one of the most remote regions of the country and where the majority of the population lives below the poverty level. A portion of all proceeds from exhibit sales will be donated to the orphanage. Call 284-3552 for more info.

• Did your yearly resolution to spend some time helping the environment on Earth Day “slip your mind” again this year? Redeem your relationship with Mother Earth by joining fellow Santa Barbarans for the Westside Neighborhood Community Cleanup Day this weekend. Volunteers are sought to help clean up litter, remove graffiti, clear overgrowth, and team up with other amateur environmentalists to make one of S.B.’s largest districts a more beautiful, eco-friendly place. Participants should meet at the Westside Community Center (423 W. Victoria St.). The cleanup happens 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 25. Contact Antonio Velasquez at 963-7687 for more info.
