Native Chicano art exhibit at CSUS

Sterling Running Stream Phillips' "Una Celebration," is on display at California State University, Sacramento's Multi-Cultural Center, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday, Sept. 16 - Nov. 16. A free public reception for the artist with live music, poetry, food and more will be at 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18. On the night of the reception there will be free parking on campus.

Phillips is a former Sacramento City College art student who received a full scholarship to the Arts Institute in San Francisco. He is one of the student artists in the RCAF Show in the CSUS Robert Else Gallery, Sept. 16 - Oct. 15 and as a one-person show in the CSUS Multi-Cultural Center in the Library.

His works are vivid displays of color with rich texture and enchanting images of women and/or farmer workers harvesting and protecting the planet. Some pieces have a strong Salvador Dali influence yet remain distinctly Phillips' Native American Chicano style.

Phillips attended City College specifically for the art program and says he was extremely satisfied with the depth of classes and instructors.

"I see that there's a lot of quality students in Sacramento," says Phillips. "A lot of times the teachers at Sac City, and at Sac State, really push the students. They open doors and inspire them."

Phillips, who used to own his own gallery on Del Paso Blvd., gets a twinkle in his eyes when he talks about his exhibits.

"I think that at the receptions there should always be poets spouting out poetry, I think art should be expected," says Phillips. "At any giving moment you can find something that is beautiful."

For more information about the exhibit call (916) 278-6101. For additional media assistance contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
