Varied works of the next generation of
artists on display at Sacramento State

Art displayAn exhibition of new work created by the Art Department’s graduating class will be on display at the University’s Else Gallery from May 7 – 24. Works encompassing all disciplines of study offered by the Studio Art Program will be highlighted in the exhibition.

“We are expecting a strong exhibition of work this year,” says faculty exhibition co-coordinator Sarah Flohr. “There is a challenge of installing such a show because of the great variety of work that is submitted. The Art Department offers students the opportunity to work in a wide variety of media and scale due to the flexible working space we have at our Art Sculpture Lab facility,” says Flohr.

The Art Department’s Kadema Hall is home to the Else and Witt Galleries.

After graduation, many of the students will go on to become a part of Sacramento’s growing arts community.

“It is always a great opportunity to see what the next generation of artists is up to in their studios. This exhibition is like several open studios’ art tours rolled into a one-stop exhibition,” says faculty exhibition co-coordinator Robert Ortbal.

The exhibition is free of charge and open to the public. Gallery hours are 12 – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday. The annual Art Ball and show reception will take place at the Else Gallery from 6 – 9 p.m., Friday, May 18.

Sacramento State’s Department of Art offers programs in studio art, art education, and art history. There are currently 260 undergraduates and 13 graduate students enrolled in the program. Sacramento’s State’s Studio Art faculty are professional exhibiting artists.
