This exhibition presents four of the Sacramento region’s most distinctive sculptors: Nathan Cordero, Julia Couzens, Chris Daubert, and Dave Lane. What these artists share is an uncompromising embrace of the conceptual tradition, creating works that reveal a rough-hewn beauty; a use of modest, found, or industrial materials; and an authoritative referencing of art history and contemporary culture. Guest curated by Renny Pritikin, former director and curator of the Nelson Gallery at UC Davis.
