Artist HOLLI HARMON is SCAPE’s Juror for the CLIMATE CHANGE Benefit Show

Holli grew up in the small town of Redlands in Southern California, where her upbringing was equally eccentric and mainstream, similar to her surroundings. Her adult years took her from UC Santa Barbara for a Bachelors degree and then to San Diego State for graduate school.  She and her husband migrated back to Santa Barbara to raise their children and have remained here for the last 30+ years. She has shown extensively in group and solo exhibitions including the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature in Solvang, Sullivan Goss – An American Gallery in Santa Barbara, the celebrated collective “Rose Compass: Paintings of “the Santa Barbara Watershed” at the Westmont Ridley Tree museum of Art in Montecito as well as the Wildling’s “The River’s Journey”, “The Lone Woman” Portrait Unveiling at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, “Making Waves” solo show at Porch, Carpinteria, and Solo Exhibition “Revelations” at the Elverhoj Museum of History and Art, Solvang, CA.  See her website for affiliated art associations and commendations.    See her featured work and statement at the Show!
