ROLAND PETERSEN: THE PICNIC SERIES
March 8 - April 19, 2016
Reception: Friday, March 11, 6-9 PM
Sponsord by Jim & Sue Smith

Roland Petersen was a founding member of the UC Davis art department, where he taught painting and printmaking for almost 40 years.  Early in his career, Petersen developed his thematic focus on Picnic Day, UC Davis’ annual day of celebration.

To honor Petersen on his 90th birthday, the Pence will display his vibrant color etchings from the 1960s to 70s of Picnic Day.  The subject provided a framework for creating complex compositions by placing figures and objects within an ambiguous landscape.  His landscapes are full of contrasting textures and colors, carving out a deep sense of space, which solitary figures stand watch over.
Roland Petersen’s work is courtesy of Elliot Fouts Gallery, Sacramento and is on display there from May 6-June 10, 2016.
