The first in a series of exhibits will celebrate the work of Hélène Webb on Thursday, May 19th from 5pm-7:30pm at Menelli Trading Company at 1080 Coast Village Road in Montecito. Hélène’s love of the sea and sailing spans her artistic career throughout various mediums including drawing, graphic art, cartography, oil, watercolor, painting and sculpture.
Hélène fell in love with clay and sculpture while teaching visually impaired students at the Braille Institute in Santa Barbara. The tactile and sensual nature of clay influenced both teachers and students.
“I love that we’ll be showing at Menelli — sculpture is three dimensional, it’s meant to be touched,” Said Webb.
The evening will include cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and the music of John Payne. Please come enjoy the tactile experience of Hélène’s sculpture where touching and seeing with your fingers is encouraged.
