Wall Space Gallery is excited to host an endless summer celebration talking about Sand People, a beautiful series by Daniel Grant that exemplifies the surf culture, the pacific coast and a way of life many dream of. The common denominator is surf. No matter where you are in the world you will find those who chase the place where the sand touches the sea. It is in this place they feel free, yet tethered to the earth and to each other.
Artist reception Friday night, August 29th from 6 to 8pm benefiting Surfer’s Healing Foundation.

Wall space gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition for gallery artist Joseph Donovan featuring his quiet, contemplative landscapes. Donovans's work stems from his deep connection with poetry and literature focusing on the shared connection between man and his surroundings. These elegant photographs reach into the heart and soul, the topography reflecting the quiet stillness of a solemn landscape.
Santa Barbara's climate almost demands that you spend at least half of the daylight hours outside, so it is no surprise that locals are finding the outdoor room addition facilitates this need for both daytime and night time. Breaking that indoor/outdoor line, architects and builders have devised numerous designs for doors to remain open, encouraging activities to flow.
