A selection of Carpinteria artist Pamela Enticknap’s clay and acrylic work will be on view at GraySpace Gallery, 219 Gray Ave. in the Funk Zone, Santa Barbara, in the upcoming exhibition, “Three Sides of a Coin.” The show will open on Jan. 17, with an artist reception from 5 to 8 p.m.
The show’s title, “Three Sides of a Coin,” refers to the three artists, Pamela Enticknap, Ruth Ellen Hoag and William Lawrence, who are presenting figurative works in sculpture, acrylic and oil on paper. The exhibition will run through Feb. 23.
Enticknap’s newest series, “Cast of Characters,” are small painted sculptures that comment on cultural requirements and the way we live and work in our society. Underlying this series is a bit of irony, a great deal of humor, some criticism and a touch of nostalgia. The artist has maintained a studio in Carpinteria since 1998, where her focus is on figurative art in many mediums. Enticknap’s works are inspired by a sense of time and place which has been described as “dense with characteristic energy and emotional richness.”
