SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – “Uberyummy: Contemporary Confections and Objects of Desire” is a collection of ceramic and multimedia installation artists who create super tantalizing environments that take viewers into worlds of consumerism, transformation, artificiality, mass reproduction and extreme behavior.

The exhibit runs Sept. 30-Dec. 15 at Cal State San Bernardino’s Robert and Frances Fullerton  Museum of Art. A grand opening reception takes place Friday,Sept. 30, from 6-9 p.m.

With an instant pop appeal, artists Tim Berg, Rebekah Myers, Kathy Butterly, Rebekah Bogard, Patsy Cox, Phyllis Green, Shane Keena, John Oliver Lewis,Charles Long, Phil Maberry and Scott Walker bring sculptures that visually stimulate, aurally animate and tactually tease, challenging the notions of gender, greed, gluttony, and glamour.

Artwork in the exhibit, co-curated by Alison Petty Ragguette and Karen Crews Hendon, ranges from iconic objects such as kitschy cha-chas, souvenir curios, and fantasy figurines, to mysterious anamorphic forms, the audience can encounter a range of perspectives and consequences that alternate between the surly and the savory.



The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art is a nationally recognized museum, accredited by the American Association of Museums. The art museum houses the largest permanent public display of Ancient Egyptian antiquities in Southern California. General admission to the museum is free. The suggested donation is $3. Parking at Cal State San Bernardino is $5 per vehicle. The museum is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5
