Rocklin, CA--The Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents "Kinetic Conveyance", art invented, engineered, designed, fabricated and powered by humans. The show runs from September 9 through October 3, 2013.

In the spirit of  "Art and Innovation" day, that will be held on campus September 26, this photographic and video documentary-image driven exhibition makes visible the thinking, innovation, and collaboration between disciplines of Engineering, Art, Welding, Music, Drama and more.

 This exhibition focuses on creations for entry into the Kinetic Grand Championship in Humboldt County, California, also called the "Triathlon of the Art World" because art and engineering are combined with physical endurance during a three day cross country race that includes sand, mud, pavement, a bay crossing, a river crossing and major hills. The Ridley Gallery will showcase images from the 2013 race, the prize winning entry from Colfax High School, and the planning stages of Sierra College entry for 2014!

 A reception for this exhibition will be held on Tuesday, September 10 from 4-7pm. Ridley Galley is located on the first floor of the Library/LR 102, on the Rocklin campus, 5000 Rocklin Rd, Rocklin. Regular hours for Ridley Gallery are 11am -6:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Admission to Ridley Gallery is free and open to the public.
