UCD faculty’s art on display at Pence

From page A11 | December 22, 2011 |

On view from Jan. 11 through Feb. 29 at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. in downtown Davis, “Between the Quotes: Work by UC Davis Art Faculty” features new work by 12 members of the renowned UCD art department.

Expanded in scope from the Pence’s faculty exhibit in 2006, “Between the Quotes” offers the community a rare insight into what these well-established artists are creating and exhibiting in art venues across the country.

As teachers, each professor is tasked with educating and inspiring the next generation of artists. Pulling from diverse sources when preparing for lectures, they often incorporate salient quotes on the nature of art, or the role of the artist.

Displayed alongside the artwork in the exhibit, these quotations encourage dynamic and thought-provoking conversations paralleling discussions from the classroom.

“Between the Quotes” includes paintings by Timothy Berry, David Hollowell, Hearne Pardee, Bryce Vinokurov and Gina Werfel; photographs by Robin Hill, Matthias Geiger and Yougnsuk Suh; video and sculpture by Darrin Martin; and sculpture by Tom Bills, Lucy Puls and Annabeth Rosen, alongside a recent drawing.

As Pardee, the department chair, noted, “The art department shares a neighborly relationship with the Pence Gallery, yet it’s been several years since the faculty’s ongoing activities have been featured there. Artworks, like friends, are best appreciated face-to-face. The department members themselves don’t often see one another’s work in person.”

Curator Natalie Nelson’s selections promise “to generate new ideas and new relationships for both the artists and the local community,” Pardee added.

An opening reception runs from 9 to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, with the artists. Guests will be treated to live music and will have the opportunity to create an art project led by UC Davis students.

A panel discussion with select members of the UCD art faculty is planned from 5 to 6:30 p.m Tuesday, Feb. 7. Geiger, Hill, Werfel and Hollowell will discuss the changing nature of teaching art over the years, the role of the artist and more. This is a free event, but seating is limited.

The exhibit and related programs are sponsored by the art department and the Division of Humanities, Arts and Culture Studies.
