Roland Petersen’s oil painting, “Blue Vase with Flowers” (1964), is one of the centerpieces of the Art Center’s collection, amassed mainly during the 1960s and 1970s. Over the years, the collection grew to encompass more than 150 works of art, many by artists who went on to become nationally recognized, including Petersen, Wayne Thiebaud, Richard Nelson, Robert Bechtle and David Gilhooly.

Tickets are on sale now for a day trip Saturday, Jan. 19, to attend a reception for “A Small Community Collects Big: The Collection of the Davis Art Center” to be held at the Paul Thiebaud Gallery, 645 Chestnut St. in San Francisco.

All Davis community members are invited to attend. The trip also includes lunch with artist Roland Petersen and his wife Caryl.

Petersen’s oil painting, “Blue Vase with Flowers” (1964), is one of the centerpieces of the Art Center’s collection, amassed mainly during the 1960s and 1970s. Over the years, the collection grew to encompass more than 150 works of art, many by artists who went on to become nationally recognized, including Petersen, Wayne Thiebaud, Richard Nelson, Robert Bechtle and David Gilhooly.

Due to a lack of adequate resources to properly maintain and display the artworks, the Art Center recently decided to sell the entire collection and use the proceeds to fund collaborative gallery programs in line with its mission to promote community engagement in the arts.

“We are thrilled that Roland and Caryl Petersen will be our guests at lunch and the gallery reception,” said Art Center Executive Director Erie Vitiello. “It’s going to be an enjoyable and enlightening day, and I encourage Davis residents to join us in giving a proper send-off to this important part of our community’s history.”

Cost for the day trip is $85 and includes transportation to and from the Art Center, lunch at Italian bistro Rose Pistola, and attendance at the gallery reception. For those who wish to have lunch on their own, the cost for the bus trip and gallery reception only is $45.

Tickets are available now and sales will end Jan. 9. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit davisartcenter.brownpapertickets.com or email Vitiello at eriev@davisartcenter.org.

“A Small Community Collects Big: The Collection of the Davis Art Center” will be on display at the Paul Thiebaud Gallery from Jan. 15 through March 2. During the exhibit, photographs of the artwork may be viewed on online at paulthiebaudgallery.com.
