Continuing Museum Exhibitions:
Abstract Collages: Edith Hillinger. Decker B Gallery.
Edith Hillinger pulls from the movement of her early life to create patterned collages referencing cultures in Germany, Turkey and the United States. Other influences are graphically drawn imagery from world cultures past and present.
Dorothea Lange: The Louise Lovett Collection. Decker A Gallery.
Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) has been long regarded as one of America's greatest documentary photographers due to her remarkable ability to capture the spirit of other that resides within ourselves. The Louise Lovett Collection, previously never seen by the public, reveals an intimate view of Lange within the sphere of her own personal friendships.
A collection of historical cameras is in included in the exhibition.
Earth and Sea: Sean Monaghan. East Gallery.
Sean Monaghan is a sculptor in high-demand. His pieces, ranging from statues of community heroes to giant metal rubber ball dispensing machines, have been commissioned for both public and private spaces for decades. Monaghan even owns and operates the Santa Cruz foundry where these creative collaborations are produced.
Up Close: Gordon Smedt. North Gallery.
One look at Gordon Smedt’s large scale contemporary paintings and you’re lost in a glorious, technicolor Wonderland. He paints everyday objects in a way that transforms the ordinary-- swim goggles, keyboards, mailboxes and more-- into something extraordinary, capturing a silliness and vibrancy that can otherwise be overlooked. “I want my paintings to arouse happiness, memories, and positive emotions. If someone looks at one of my paintings and smiles, I’ve achieved my goal.”
