“World of Chuck Warner: A Celebration of Art” will run through Jan. 30 at Gallery 625, the public art gallery curated by YoloArts at the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.

The exhibit’s opening reception, sponsored by Roth Ranch, will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, coinciding with downtown Woodland’s First Friday Art Walk. Regular gallery viewing hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

An artist and art educator, Warner influenced and mentored thousands of students at Woodland High. He was born in Sacramento, but much of his teaching career was spent at WHS until his death in 2005. He graduated from Sacramento State in 1966 and did post-graduate work at the California College of the Arts in Oakland, where he had the opportunity to study with the important painters of the 1960s.

In his work, Warner pushed boundaries to see what his medium would do and subscribed to Marcel Duchamp’s notion that an artist sets in motion a creative process that the viewer must complete.

“One of Chuck’s most important legacies was his contribution to the world of art through education,” said his wife Marion Cantor, in the exhibition’s artist statement. “He was active on a team that developed curriculum for public school art education, and instrumental in adding art to the UC system entrance requirements.”
