Artist Statements
Roberta Rousos—Technological advances never cease. The world is changing before our eyes. New is always better; or is it? Roberta Rousos believes that we need to hold onto the best of the past to enhance our present and strengthen our future. Typewriters and sewing machines were marvels in their time; now they are vintage collectables or obsolete junk. Rousos takes the forgotten innovations of the past and gives them new life in her sculptures. She glorifies the industrial and exposes the beauty of the mechanical. Rousos then incorporates knitting, a traditionally feminine art, into the traditionally masculine craft of metalwork to
add balance and venerate our dual human nature.

D Brian Burns II is a mixed media artist whose work explores the relationship of the illusionary and physical qualities of art making, his work fuses together the often rivaling worlds of painting and sculpture, and strives to be in the middle ground between the two.
Burns’ work thrives off of the intuitive qualities of mark making, and the responses to material and paint. He seeks to understand the internal nature of his work, and by extension himself and humanity. He believes that through allowing ourselves the freedom to create intuitively and ask introspective questions, we can learn to understand who we really are.

Parker & Templeton at Fe Gallery October '14

Fe Gallery October 2014 Flyer

In October Fe Gallery is featuring two wonderful artists:

First, we have LAURA PARKER a tenured professor of art who is an established artist in her mid-career as a sculptor.

Second, we have MADELYNE TEMPLETON having received 3 art scholarships who is now a student in the process of obtaining her fine arts degree and beginning her career as a painter.

Laura is an exceptional established metal/wood sculptor and Madelyne is an emerging talented painter.

Although, they are in different stages of their life and work in dissimilar genres they share the communal bond of artists working to refine their art; yet it is not the communal bond but their mutual underlying eye for beauty that leads both to create inherently stunning art.

Please join Laura and Madelyne at Fe Gallery’s October 11th (6-9pm) opening artist reception; Live Blacksmith demo by Stephen Lyman & Friends approximate time 7pm.

6:00pm to 9:00pm Blacksmithing demo approximate time 7:00pm

John Kloss @ Union Hall Gallery

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.

John Kloss at Union Hall

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.

Stuart Allen & Richard Martinez @ JayJay

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.

JayJay in July

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.

Ruth Santee @ Red Dot Gallery in July

The Art of Ruth Santee will be on display at the Red Dot Gallery on Second Saturday, July 12, 2014.

Red Dot Gallery
2231 J Street
Suite 101
Sacramento, CA 95816

Ruth Santee at Red Dot Gallery

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.
