Cartooning is an odd bird strutting the local fine art barnyard. John Kloss cartooned the capital city as journalist staff editorial cartoonist for over three decades, and his drawings appeared in various local newspapers and magazines. Kloss often included social issues in panels in order to get paid commissions. He engaged himself in the important social movements of his time, including those advocating trade unionism, education, environment, and political reform. For fun, he produced color comic strips featuring illustrated educational puzzles for the Sacramento Bee throughout the 1990s, which enjoyed national distribution under contract to Creators Syndicate of Los Angeles. Kloss is especially pleased to be welcomed to the Los Rios California Federation of Teachers Union Hall to display some of these pieces, since he’s been an instructor of sociology and art at the region’s colleges.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Kloss came out in the mid ’70s to attend university in Sacramento. The artist’s undergraduate work is in art, journalism, and government at CSUS and his graduate work is in philosophy of art at the University of Sussex, England.
Come and enjoy drawings that are both fun and serious as he inked for papers, posters, politics, and penned plenty of playful portraits. Included in the show are whimsical works on canvas and in clay.
Art by Daphne Stammer and Anne Bradley will be on display at Blue Moon Gallery on Second Saturday, July 12, 2014! Enjoy music by Randy Bryson, appetizers, and wine at the artist reception.

JAYJAY is pleased to present Stuart Allen and Richard Martinez for their upcoming June/July exhibit. It has been too long since these two JAYJAY artists have graced the gallery, and what a perfect pairing they are.
Stuart Allen, who lives and works in San Antonio, returns to Sacramento to present new photographs – once again making profound statements with very simple and minimal images. Allen received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1993 and has exhibited widely including one person shows at the Crocker Art Museum and the Claremont Graduate University Gallery.
In this new body of paintings, Richard Martinez continues to refer to an interest in baroque decorative shapes and modernist painting techniques and movements. The artist hand is prominent as Martinez employs an approach to paint that celebrates the medium abstractly. Martinez received his MFA at UC Davis in 2001. He has just finished a one person exhibition at Texas State University, and was also included in the Oregon Biennial (2001) at the Portland Art Museum, and the Texas Biennial (2005 and 2011) in Austin, TX.
Mary Lou Carreia’s Impressionist Artwork will be on display at Capital ArtWorks this Saturday, July 12th, 2014. Painting loosely with exuberant brush strokes, her vibrant color combinations express the changing moods of the landscapes.
The Art of Ruth Santee will be on display at the Red Dot Gallery on Second Saturday, July 12, 2014.

The non-moving, non-living ‘still life’ has a centuries old tradition in fine art. Historically, objects painted (flowers, bottles, fruit, candles, skulls) often reflected a message of moral and religious importance.
Ruth Santee’s still life paintings are observational explorations of common banal objects; their structure, color, texture, proportions and the shadows they cast, are all significant elements in individual works. As significant as the object choice is, the cast shadow it creates is equally important. The shadow serves a dual purpose of creating depth in the painting, but also as the allegorical dual self. The study of objects that may seem superficially unimportant, have led her to paint paintings that are metaphoric commentary on contemporary life and relationships.
Atelier 20 will be showing a new collection of abstract work by artist and designer Linda Kleeman. Kleeman has been a well known Sacramento designer for over 30 years and has displayed her art in galleries in San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Sacramento.
Tim Collom Gallery is pleased to have Nichole Lauren Fry as our June Featured Artist. Nichole uses oils to create emotional provoking abstracts with her bold colors and brush strokes.
Already featured in many local businesses and households, so she is excited to have the opportunity to widen her reach through the Gallery. Be sure to stop in June 14th for the 2nd Saturday Opening and meet the artist!
Show runs June 11 – June 28, 2014.
Atelier 20 is excited to show Martin Webb’s new collection of works. Webb is originally from London, but has made a name for himself in the Bay Area. Webb’s work comes from thoughts about people, places, and home; about age, time, and timelessness, permanence and impermanence. The work will include paintings, prints, sculpture, and functional pieces. Join us for 2nd Saturday and meet the artist.
Show runs June 14 – July 5, 2014. 2nd Saturday Opening 11am – 9pm.
