- ARTSMART PROGRAM -

ArtSmart, the Pence Gallery’s fieldtrip for school groups, engages students in exploring the world through hands-on experiences. Students enjoy learning about the art on display with a docent, and put their ideas to work in their own art project.  Our artists introduce new concepts, materials, and themes in the visual arts. Choose from four projects designed to stimulate your students’ creativity and connect art to different disciplines.

  Artist Talk / Panel on Women & Art
Sunday, Dec. 10, 2-3:30 PM (Free)
Photographer Kurt Edward Fishback undertook a four-year project to photograph 71 women artists in their studios, in order to retify the lack of gender balance in his studio portraits in his own work. In this talk,  Kurt Edward Fishback will discuss his project, followed by a panel on women and art. Six of the women artists portrayed will talk about their own experience in the art world, and the future that they see for women artists. Participating local artists include Barbara Range, artist and Director of the Brickhouse Art Gallery, Joy Bertinuson, painter and professor at American River College and CSUS, and Kathrine Lemke Waste, watercolor artist and Board president of American Women Artists, Heidi Bekebrede, a multi media artist who works with paint, ceramics, song and words, Carly Pruett, an emerging artist from Nevada County, and Pam Dixon, painter and ceramic sculptor.
