External Combustion:Four Sacramento Sculptors

External_Combustion_webThis 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. read more

Linda Connor: From Two Worlds

LindaConnor_webThis solo exhibition by photographer Linda Connor features two seemingly divergent bodies of work. Presented as large-scale photographs, some printed on silk, Dark Forces reveals Connor’s fascination with the time worn monasteries encountered in Tibet and Northern India. The Olson House, made famous by the American painter Andrew Wyeth, is a portfolio of quiet and haunting images of interior spaces and landscapes devoid of human presence. Guest curated by Anne Veh. read more
