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.
