Beloved SB Artist’s Strong Legacy in Landscape

Immerse yourself in art this summer!—you won’t regret it.

An exhibit by one of the most influential Santa Barbara artist of the last 50 years is now open! Sullivan Goss —An American Gallery is featuring its newest exhibition of work, A Legacy in Landscape. The exhibit showcases an impressive selection of large work by Ray Strong, a highly regarded Santa Barbara artist.

Strong is a highly admired teacher of plein air painting and played an instrumental role in Santa Barbara’s reputation as one of the world’s best locations to create and collect plein air landscape works. Prior to his arrival in Santa Barbara, Strong made significant contributions to American art with his work as a WPA muralist. One of his paintings is now part of a permanent collection of Smithsonian’s American Art Museum. Strong’s influence grew exponentially in Santa Barbara when he and his wife Elizabeth moved here in 1960 and when he co-founded the Oak Group, where he was a leader until his death in 2006, at the impressive age of 102.
