Kara Maria: Head Over Heels

All Day

Location: University Art Gallery - Trinity 100
Category: Arts, Theatre, & Music

In a single canvas, Kara Maria's painting skips from geometric shapes and well-defined forms to exuberant swirls and vibrant splotches of color. Yet Maria's paintings are more than a pastiche of styles. Within her dynamic environments, the artist introduces a lone skunk, a rhinoceros, a surveillance camera, a camouflaged airplane, to name just a few. Each is an isolated moment of realism, pulled from the turbulent social and political issues of our present day. These parallel discourses - surveillance, environmentalism, military violence--interject a power punch of associations amidst a play of color and gesture. Kara Maria lives and works in San Francisco.

Turner Art Exhibit: And the Award Goes to...A Survey of The Turner Collection Winners


Location: Turner Print Museum, Meriam Library
Category: Arts, Theatre, & Music

Typically the curator guides the acquisition process that expands a collection. Nearly half the Turner Print Collection reflects the curatorial guidance of its founder, the late Dr. Janet Turner (1914-1988) emeritus faculty at CSU, Chico. In building her collection from other experts in the field, notably the late Dr. Gordon Gilkey, professor of art at Portland State University and founder of the Gordon and Vivian Gilkey Collection at Portland Art Museum. For the past twenty years important prints representing the varied nature of contemporary printmaking have been added to the collection by the judicious selection of a juror for the biennial Turner National Print Competition, the annual Juried Student Print Exhibition and the Turner Collection Acquisition Committee’s choice of the Turner Print Prize. This exhibition offers the chance to see together important works added to the collection through these channels.

Gallery closed Sundays.
