Local Photographer Fritz Olenberger Exhibits Works to Benefit the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, Calif. – Twenty four stunning images created and donated by local photographer Fritz Olenberger depicting Santa Barbara’s vibrant energy are on display at Pacific Western Bank, located at 30 E. Figueroa St. All of the images featured in the show are available for sale with 100% of the proceeds going to support local cancer care at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic. Pacific Western Bank has graciously offered to match the value of Mr. Olenberger’s contribution with a gift of their own to the Cancer Center.
Fritz Olenberger is a regular contributor to the online Santa Barbara news sources Noozhawk and Edhat, and is a volunteer photographer for many Santa Barbara organizations including the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, American Cancer Society, Doctors Without Walls, Old Spanish Days Fiesta, Flamenco Arts Festival, the Spirit of 76 Foundation, the Santa Barbara Festival Ballet, and the Santa Barbara Trust for Historical Preservation. He has been a credentialed photographer for the Amgen Tour of California, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and the Tournament of Roses parade. His photographs have appeared on the covers of the Independent, the Sentinel, the News Press Scene, Family Life, and Santa Barbara Lawyer.
The photos in the show are printed on metal using a special process using dye sublimation inks, heat, and pressure. Colors are vibrant, the luminescence is breathtaking, and the image durability is 2 to 4 times longer than traditional silver based photo papers.
An artist’s reception will be held at the bank’s downtown location on June 2 starting at 5pm as part of the First Thursday event organized by the Downtown Organization.
All photographs are available for sale. To purchase, contact the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara at (805) 898-2115.
Pacific Western Bank is currently hosting the Santa Barbara Alive! exhibition by local photographer Fritz Olenberger at their downtown branch. All proceeds from the sale of any photographs benefit the Cancer Center’s new building set to complete in 2017.
