Hawaiian artist Cayetano Ferrer works in remnants. He starts with fragments—the parts that so often get discarded—of ancient textiles, found pieces of carved wood, sections of marble, or even an Art Deco-age ashtray stolen from a casino lobby to create sculptures and installations that explore the idea of repurposing archaeological waste. The centerpiece of this exhibit, an interesting commentary on high-brow versus low-brow culture, is a wall-to-wall rug comprising industrially manufactured carpet sections from the Bellagio, the Palms, and other casinos, all embellished with Greek and Egyptian motifs.
When: Through Sun. 3/13/16
Where: Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State St., Santa Barbara
