Opening Reception: 5:30-7:30\, July 9th\, 2015\, Exhibition July 1st - July 31st

\n

Sandra Lee Gallery is proud to present 'Ethere al Visions': Works by Jason Adkins\, David Avery\, and Corinne Whitaker. Th is exhibitions brings together the three recipients of the Honorable Mentio n prize in 2014's 'Real/Surreal' show. In 'Ethereal Visions\,' each artist guides viewers past the veil of the familiar\, and into lush and sometimes frightening landscapes pulled forth from their imaginations. By juxtaposing their work\, audiences are allowed a view into the collision between harsh and jagged digital-scapes\, tumultuous apocalyptic events\, and dreamlike scenes of the future.

Jason Adkins' work includes large-scale pa intings and drawings that respond in part to excess of modern visual glutto ny\; a churning cauldron of organic form and vibrant color that threatens t o swamp the viewer.

Davide Avery's art explores the obfuscated meaning behind images\, words\, and objects. His etching recall both the im aginative woodcuts of Durer and Victorian illustration\, but frequently inc lude familiar contemporary details\, to an unsettling effect.

C orinne Whitaker\, aka the Digital Giraffe\, has been a pioneer in the field of digital art\, bringing digital imagery into the tangible world through her prints and sculptures. Whitaker's art is filled with fragmented ephemer a\, bones and feathers\, quills and clouds\, which come together to create new beings and digital "terrae incognitae."

Holy night\, you sink down\;

They call\, when day awakens:

Sweet dreams\, come back!

Artists Simon Dvorak and Charlie Schneider will be presentin g an original interactive art piece at the Crocker Art Museum for the Quenc h Art Mixer this Thursday\, July 9th \;from 5-9:00pm \;< /p>\n

 \;&ldquo\;Accumulation + Assemblage (Digital Diversion #6) Sac ramento\, CA&rdquo\; \;Is a \;collaborative project that speaks to the transformation of the physical world into digital system of organizatio n\, use\, and display. The artists&rsquo\; accumulation of data\, using ran dom sampling processes for video and text feeds\, presents a positive spin to the data mining and information gathering by more powerful interests: th e work is fundamentally about human relationships and ties to place. It is about parts that make the whole. \;

\n

For the &ldquo\;Quench&rdqu o\; Art Mixer\, one camera will be placed so as to view the Sacramento Rive r\, and the other will be in the courtyard of the Crocker. \;In this wa y\, the colors from the river will contrast with the colored text of the lo cal twitter feed\, creating a sense of the similarities and differences bet ween the flow of the river\, the flow of tweets and the flow of museum visi tors.

\n

Simon Dvorak graduated with a degree in Art Studio from U.C. Davis in 2000. \; His work is concerned spacial interactions both physi cal and digital\, and data visualization. He currently works and lives in D avis with his family. Information about the artist and his latest work can be found at \;simondvorak.com. \;

\n

Charlie Schneider is a Californ ia-based artist. \; He recently completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago\, where he was awarded the pr estigious Trustee Scholarship more information about his work can be found& nbsp\;cs chneiderart.com. \;
