From February 9 until May 12, local artist Kat Martin will display her solo-art exhibition, “Joie de Vivre” at the Leigh Block Gallery at Hospice of Santa Barbara (2050 Alameda Padre Serra Suite #100). From 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 9, Hospice of Santa Barbara (HSB) will host a wine and hors d’oeuvres open house reception for the exhibit.

Holding a B.A. in Installation Art/Art as a Forum for Community Voice and Vision from Goddard College (Plainfield, VT), Martin has called her art her own “visual journal,” providing a reflection of life through nature. While living in Waterville, Maine for 35 years, she fell in love with its landscape, people and way of life.
