Gary H. Brown‘s positioning as a regional portal for the Ventura Avant-Garde is important. In this exhibition, Brown revisits a collaboration with Art/Life Limited Monthly Edition publisher, Joe Cardella, who in 1982 opened the Art/Life Gallery on State Street in Santa Barbara with a Gary H. Brown solo exhibition. The two are together again in this exhibition. We see Gary H. Brown re-emerge as a vital painter for Santa Barbara, Ventura and L.A. counties, as well as for Southwest China. Anthology is an entire legacy on a single canvas.
