••• Opening this Friday at Sullivan Goss: California on My Mind, “an exhibition of historic and contemporary paintings, drawings, and prints by artists from Southern California that highlight the history and mythology of our region.” Above: a detail from Frank Kirk’s “Sunbathers.”
••• Big construction project starting soon: “The Desal Link project will connect key community water sources by installing an underground pipeline between the Charles E. Meyer Desalination Plant and water mains connected to the Cater Water Treatment Plant.” In other words, the blue line in the map below. “This new pipeline will enable desalinated water to reach our entire service area while enhancing system resiliency and improving water quality.” It’s expected to take a year. More info here.
••• From the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation: “Join us on October 7, from 5 p.m.-8 p.m., as we celebrate First Thursday with our 12th-annual Asian American Neighborhood Festival. This year’s event will be held at Casa de la Guerra and will feature dance, drumming, music, and other performing arts.” The graphic by D.J. Javier deserves to be on posters and T-shirts.
••• Seda Custom Skincare sure appears to be leaving Coast Village Road. I tried calling to confirm, but there was no answer.
••• Alt-J and Portugal. The Man (the period is part of the latter’s name) play the Santa Barbara Bowl on March 26.
••• A few more photos have come online for one of the two Loon Point estates that came on the market as 2779 Padaro Lane in August for the price of $160 million. I’m not sure whether the property known as 2777 Padaro Lane is the original house or the one the owners built, but for our lookie-loo purposes, it hardly matters. UPDATE 10/3: This is the house that the sellers built.
