Post Sierra Exhibit and Reception in Rocklin
Rocklin, CA--The Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents "Post Sierra", an exhibition of work by Sierra College Alumni Evan Nesbit, Tyler Mcginn, and Laurie Rindell. All having attended Sierra during a similar timeframe, 2002-2010, this exhibition visits these emergent artists as they navigate making work beyond the academic setting. Nesbit and McGinn share the commonality of attending graduate schools on the East Coast before returning home to Northern California, Nesbit earning an MFA at Yale in 2012 and McGinn at NYSCC Alfred University in 2011, Rindell chose to remain local and pursue her ambitious studio practice through self-directed means.
Nesbit creates abstract paintings driven by process, manipulating paint through burlap canvases allowing the qualities of the materials to drive the viscous, textural end result. McGinn's work has evolved from the ceramics he studied in graduate school, as he brings us an installation of brightly colored acrylic paintings of iconic landscapes abstracted from found images. Rindell creates meticulously rendered drawings, paintings, and ceramic sculpture in surreal combinations of animals and manmade objects.
A reception for this exhibition will be held on Wednesday, October 23 from 5-7pm, and will include Artist Evan Nesbit speaking about his work at 6:00pm.
Ridley Gallery is located on the first floor of the Library/LR 102, on the Rocklin campus, located at 5000 Rocklin Rd, Rocklin. The exhibit runs from October 21 through November 23, 2013. Regular hours for Ridley Gallery are 11am -6:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Admission to Ridley Gallery is free and open to the public. There is a $3 parking fee on campus. Permits are available for purchase from dispensers located in the parking lot.
