Three Stages at Folsom Lake College hosts an invitational exhibition of Folsom Lake College alumni artists in the Bank of America Gallery, Feb. 3 through March 18, with a special artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10.
It is a question every art student has to grapple with: “What will I do after I complete my studies?” In the FLC Alumni Invitational exhibition at the Bank of America Gallery, former students and art majors answer this question and they reveal their lives as a post-FLC artist in the art world.
The exhibition features a diverse range of works — paintings, ceramics, etchings and digital video. Each body of work captures the essence and investigative nature of the artist’s personal journey. The exhibition is representative of each artist’s aesthetics and reflects their regional influences. Artists include Sigrid Benson, Natalia Bidun, Kylie Duthie, Barret Jeglinski, David Johnson and Zach Timberlake.
Select FLC alumni who have gone on to pursue active lives as artists were invited to exhibit their work. The artists in this exhibition are a diverse group. Some have gone on to pursue higher degrees, while others jumped straight into the job market. The artworks reveal fascinating personal stories and trace the artistic and professional trajectory of their lives.
Many of these former FLC students keep in touch with their FLC instructors and all said they value the importance of their education at FLC, showing their ability to shine in the contemporary art world. A searching and deepening desire for the arts is what connects these artists. These individuals exemplify the vibrancy and multiple dimensions of the current art world.
The Bank of America Gallery is open to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when exhibits are installed. In addition, the gallery is open beginning one hour before, and during intermission of, each scheduled performance at Three Stages.
Regular admission to the gallery is free of charge. When visiting the gallery on a weekday a parking permit is required. Permits are available for $1 per vehicle from automated kiosk dispensers located near the parking lot entrances.
