The 100 Grand exhibit is one of the most popular events at Sullivan-Goss, where 100 works of art are presented and sold for under $1000 each. Many are much lower than the $1000 price cap, too.
The opening at the December 1st Thursday was crowded with people, including a number of the artists. Actually, thanks to First Thursday, I'm now friends with some of these artists, so thank you First Thursday for introducing me to cool art and cool people over the years.
If you've been thinking about buying a piece, do wander down to Sullivan-Goss, because the point of entry is much more accessible with this exhibit.
S-G is also displaying works from Hank Pitcher and Lockwood de Forest, other perennial favorites for the Santa Barbara area (not part of the 100 Grand exhibit, of course).
100 Grand runs from 1 December - 29 January 2012. If you're in the market to buy, go sooner. I was there by 5:15 on opening night and saw red dots by a number of pieces already.
