KKFX Fox 11 featured two graduates from Women’s Economic Ventures live on its morning show on August 7th, 2018. Robin Elander graduated from WEV’s Smart Entrepreneurial Training (SET) course. Mosaic artist, Betsy Gallery, took a similar WEV course decades ago prior to the creation of the SET class.
Now, they are working together on a unique work of art: the Santa Barbara Timeline Mosaic. It’s a 50-foot long mosaic on the city’s history. Once complete, the community will be able to view 150 million years of major local events on one mosaic. The location hasn’t been chosen yet. Elander is the project manager and Gallery is the lead mosaic artist. They both credit WEV for inspiring them to pursue their dreams and leave traditional jobs.
