Frank BETTENDORF: THE LAST ROAD SHOW

June 3 – June 26, 2022
Reception: June 10, 6-9 PM

 The Last Road Show includes Frank Bettendorf’s watercolor paintings of a selection of abandoned buildings, railroad card and trucks, and roadside attractions. Inspired by memories from previous explorations of the West, his landscapes create a specific sense of place and unique character. Remembering the history of a vanishing place, with all its beauty, originality, and purpose, is part of what motivates his work.

FOUND

June 10 – August 14, 2022
Reception: July 10, 6-9 PM

Artists from the Sacramento region to the Bay Area have been drawn to the practice of creating sculpture from found or recycled objects since the 1950s. Lifting a material or object into the realm of art can stimulate a vast network of associations, from the personal to the political. Found includes recent assemblages by Jim Adan, Suzanne Adan, Randy Brennan, Nathan Cordero, Julia Couzens, Ianna Frisby, Stephen Giannetti, Nemo Gould, Cherie Hacker, Ron Peetz, Terry Peterson, Cami Rothmuller, Jill Allyn Stafford, Mike Stevens, and Carrie Ziser.

Curator’s Talk: Assemblage in Northern California

Saturday, June 11, 2-3 PM (Free, suggested donation $10)

Natalie Nelson shares a short history of the practice of assemblage, or found object sculpture, followed by an exhibit tour by Found.

Sponsored by Ms. HF Richardson
