Carpinteria Magazine and Friends of the Carpinteria Library have teamed up with three local artists to introduce Art for a Cause, a fundraiser to benefit Carpinteria Library. Artists Brian Tepper, Lety Garcia and Ted Rhodes have donated artworks depicting the Wardholme Torrey Pine in their distinct styles and media: geometric abstractions on canvas, realism in painting and experimental photography. A drawing will be held in February for each art piece, and tickets are now on sale for $5 at the Friends of the Library Used Bookstore, 5103 Carpinteria Ave.


The fundraiser will kick off with a reception on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Friends Used Books Store, 5103 Carpinteria Ave. Members of the public are invited to attend the reception, where the artists will be on hand to discuss their work. Tickets for the drawing can be purchased during the reception or during normal bookstore hours, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To find our more, visit Carpinteria Magazine online at or pick up a free copy at racks throughout Carpinteria.
