Join us at the Pence for our 2nd Friday ArtAbout reception on October 13, 6 – 9 PM. Enjoy some wine while browsing the new art exhibits on display, and visit the courtyard to shop from our pop-up Night Market. Free admission.
Oct. 10 – Dec. 1
For artists, more than simply a time of day, twilight can function as a sort of in-between space, opening boundaries between formerly distinct objects or ideas. In this liminal space four artists from Siskiyou County – Belinda Hanson, Chris Clother, Cathy Valentine, and Carol Jenkins – address the very real changes they’ve encountered over the past three years. Through installations, mixed media, paintings, and assemblage, they address their relationship with nature, light, and the vagaries of life as they know it.
Andres Alvarez: Quotidian Fire/El Fuego Cotidiano
Oct. 3 – Nov. 2
Andres Alvarez is a peripatetic photographer who has largely focused his lens on the streets of Sacramento, documenting the cultural celebrations, practices, and daily life of the diverse people who live in the region. His careful attention to the formal elements and the beauty of color is always present, even as he captures the conflict and economic disparity present in our own backyard.
Michael Mikolon: Garments
Oct. 6 – Nov. 26
Michael Mikolon delves into the intricate relationship between clothing and identity, and the stories inherent in our garments, in a new series of drawings. Created using pastel and charcoal on Canson paper, these works explore the connection between clothing and the individuals who choose to wear them, and how garments can express individuality, values, or cultural identity.
Night Market in the Courtyard
Oct. 13, 6 – 8 PM
Visit our pop-up Night Market behind the Pence, featuring work of a variety of media by young visual artists. The artists will be handling their own transactions through cash, check, and mobile pay apps, and the artists keep all proceeds. Come show your support and see the talent of the local art scene!
Visit the Pence and other venues in Downtown Davis for the 2nd Friday artwalk. We will have printed ArtAbout guides available that week. Follow the 2nd Friday ArtAbout Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/davisartabout.
