The Pence Gallery to host exhibit of 3D pop-up books

From page A9 | November 06, 2013 |

Before 3D meant sitting in a movie theater with crazy glasses, there were 3D pop-up books.
A private collection of 3D children’s books will be on display from Nov. 19 to Dec. 29 at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. A reception is planned from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.
Pop-up books, with their lively and graphic three-dimensional images, have been a popular art form since the mid-19th century. Numerous examples of this art form will be on display in this exhibit on a loan from the collection of Maria Winkler, professor of art emeritus at Sacramento State.

Including themes based on the winter holidays, such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas, the exhibit also will include 3D cards and games spanning two centuries that showcase the complicated paper engineering and printing that characterizes pop-up art.
Special days included:
* Dec. 5, Holiday tea and pop-up exhibit tour: From 10 to 11:30 a.m., Pence Gallery director Natalie Nelson will give a select few a fresh look at this old art form. Afterward, there will be fresh pastries and tea in the main gallery. Tea lovers also may enjoy Lesley Wrightson’s demonstrations of her richly ornamented felted necklaces. To register, call 530-758-3370 by Dec. 4. Cost: $18 ($14 for members) and includes a gift bag and discounts on shopping.

* Dec. 7, Kids create pop-up holiday cards and book sale: From 2 to 4 p.m., Winkler will instruct kids ages 5-12 in how to create holiday-themed pop-up cards. Winkler is both a collector and an artist whose 3D art books have been widely exhibited regionally and nationally.

Hundreds of 3D books from her collection will be available for purchase, including books on animals, history, insects, holidays and many other topics. Cost: $6 ($4 for members). No RSVP is necessary. This event is sponsored by Anne Lincoln and Steve Roth.

* Dec. 15, collector talk: From 2 to 3 p.m., Winkler will give a free lecture on her pop-up books, games and more moveable items, and discuss the history of this 3D art form. Following her talk, many out-of-print books from her collection will be for sale, to benefit the Pence Gallery.
This exhibit is sponsored by Dick and Joy Dorf, Pamela Pearl, Lyn Lofland and Mary Leachman.
