Lucy Puls at Verge Center for the Arts in October 2015

by 2nd Saturday
For the past three decades, Lucy Puls has been turning unwanted objects and photos of abandoned domestic environs into insignias of the consumer world. Lucy Puls: [just you] encompasses over 40 objects from 1987-2015, with the past decade being a particular focus. During that time, she has refined her interest in found objects and collage and created several new bodies of work. These works, which range from smaller, diorama-like floor sculptures to complex wall pieces, incorporate photographs, stubbed out cigarettes, kitschy souvenirs, home stereo systems, pop culture cast-offs, and household products. Although relatively obscure, Puls has created an immediately recognizable [...]

“W(rapper) Dreams” at White Buffalo Gallery in October 2015

by 2nd Saturday
White Buffalo Gallery is excited to present “W(rapper) Dreams” art of Michelle Vo for October running until November 7th. "Drawing has been that childhood hobby that always seemed to linger. It’s partly why I find myself hesitating to call myself an artist because I’ve always seen what I did as a way to kill time. But over time, I can’t deny the fact that art is more than just a childhood hobby. It’s what keeps me lowkey sane when I’m forced to put priorities in check. Going to school full time or working that 9-5 state job has definitely made [...]

Rick Siggins: Color at B. Sakata Garo – September 2015

by 2nd Saturday
B. Sakata Garo is pleased to announce its next exhibition, Rick Siggins: Color, opening on September 1st at its gallery in midtown Sacramento. This show features a collection of paintings from over a decade of the artist’s work. Rick Siggins’ abstract paintings are composed of multiple small, individually-stretched canvases. He assembles these intricately handpainted colored pieces together creating a kaleidoscopic effect. Siggins’ works, some of which are imposingly large and comprised of hundreds of canvases, appear relatively precise from a distance, but up close mesmerize the viewer with an intriguing weave of vibrant colors. Born in San Francisco in 1973, Rick Siggins was immersed in the New York art scene for over 20 years. He moved…

Mystic Pigeons at Atelier20 – September 2015

by 2nd Saturday
Join Atelier20 on September 12th for the opening of Sea Miller's solo exhibition, Mystic Pigeons. This new collection is inspired by "inside the city" scenarios, featuring city elements like birds (especially pigeons), pavement, high voltage lines and plumbing. Miller's inspiration derives from the idea that it's easier to appreciate the items we expect to be "pretty," but by living in a gritty urban environment we still need to find the beauty in the everyday objects we are surrounded by. Miller wants to impart that we should seek to get in touch with the "something more" that moves our spirits. Show [...]

Featured Artist: Laurelin Gilmore “SPOTLIGHT” Gallery 2110, 1023 Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95815 2nd Saturday Art Walk: September 12th, 6–9 PM Laurelin Gilmore, a life long artist, explores realism, fantasy, and surrealism through her paintings.  Painting the human form has always been her touchstone. She realized quickly that painting people with hooves; wings, scales and horns were expressions of her own experience.  As a woman of blended ethnicities, a person born on a cusp, and living with the skin condition Vitiligo, duality and the place where opposites meet has always intrigued her. Fence sitters, go-betweens, and people with a [...]
