Brooks Institute’s Gallery 27, the 300 square feet of gallery space at its 27 East Cota Street campus, opened its final exhibition during last week’s 1st Thursday event. Second Nature, a selection of work from Brooks’s nine masters of fine art 2015 graduates, thoughtfully tackles topics ranging from food quality and consumption to the meaning of home to our relationship with the natural world.

With the building mostly empty due to the school’s moving to Ventura, the students and curator Jesse Groves were able to utilize classrooms usually unavailable to create a wonderful multimedia experience for the arts community of Santa Barbara. Second Nature will be showing through November 1.
