• June 7 through Sept. 20: David Ligare: California Classicist — A self-proclaimed Classicist, David Ligare (born 1945) creates perfectly ordered still life, landscape, architectural, and figurative paintings that occupy their own poetic world. The complete range of his subject matter is represented here in this retrospective exhibition of nearly 80 works. Although often grouped with California’s Photorealists, the very unreality of Ligare’s paintings and his underlying interest in antiquity belie such a label, and the perfection of his unblemished subjects and hyper-purity of his paint application seem more unearthly than real. In achieving these qualities, Ligare looks to the ancients for guidance and references the formal relationships found in Classical sculpture and architecture. And yet, his paintings are firmly based in the specifics of California — the Monterey region in particular — allowing Ligare to create art that is richly layered, broadly universal, and yet specifically of our time and place.
• June 21 through Sept. 6: Flowers of Fire and Earth: Shimo’s Blue-and-White Porcelains: If ever there was a perfect match between an artist’s medium and subject matter, it is in Shimo’s blue-and-white porcelains decorated with lotus flowers. An iconic symbol in Buddhism, the lotus springs forth pristinely white from the bottom of the murky pond in which it grows, suggesting the holiness of the Buddhist doctrine and the purity of the devotee. The same is true of the porcelain itself, which comes from a dwindling deposit in Jingdezhen, in Shimo’s native China. Beautifully translucent, it is the perfect ground for representing not only the lotus and others types of flowers, but landscapes and figures—all unions of history and modernity, East and West.
• June 28 through Oct. 11: Armin Hansen: The Artful Voyage — Armin Hansen (1886-1957) sought to capture the raw power and vitality of the Pacific and those who sailed it rather than the beauty of the ocean’s light and color for its own sake. Although the San Francisco native at times painted lush still lifes, spirited rodeo scenes, and loosely rendered landscapes, his signature subjects were fisherfolk and the sea. Often described as Impressionist, Hansen’s art departed from the calm and colorful beauty that characterized the style, even though he used bold colors and, at times, broken brushstrokes. For the most part, Hansen rejected Impressionism’s gentility to focus on humanity’s interaction and contests with nature. He did so with broad masses of color, dynamic compositions, and the elimination of superfluous detail. At heart a storyteller, he had an ability to create compelling narratives. His stories are told here through 100 works, including oils on canvas, watercolors, and etchings. The exhibition is organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art in collaboration with the staff of the Crocker Art Museum.
• Through November 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum present See That Lonesome Whistle Blow: Mass Market Collectibles With a Railroad Twist exhibit in the museum’s Lobby Gallery. More than 50 steam train-themed mass market items, collectible objects and related artifacts will be on display as part of the new exhibit designed to demonstrate and reflect the widespread nature of railroading in popular American culture. A wide variety of (sometimes surprising) items will be included in this new exhibit, including the following: a liquor decanter, cologne bottle, lamp stand, flower vase, cigarette lighter, ash tray, tea pot, cracker box, candy container and bolo tie, to name a few. Museum visitors will be challenged to examine these types of objects — often called kitsch — more closely in an effort to understand how the items reflect popular culture and the period of time in which they were created. In addition, the exhibit will demonstrate the prevalence of stream train-themed artwork and/or designs being used to enhance consumer appeal on products, as well as illustrating the far-reaching impact railroading has had on the mindset of Americans. The museum is located at 125 I St. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
• Through November 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum present a visually exciting, new exhibit titled Sculpture With a RE-Purpose: The Found Art of Ray Carrington that will showcase more than 40 sculptures created by a Fairfield artist. The cleverly designed sculptures were made from scrap metal, cast-off tools, railroad spikes, track plates and equipment retrieved from abandoned logging railroads and sawmills. Museum visitors will have the up-close opportunity to see and appreciate the technical craftsmanship, strength and finesse of each individual sculpture. Information about the science behind the variety of welding techniques used by the artist will also be covered in the exhibit. Shortly after the exhibit opens, an interactive station will be added so interested visitors can experiment with electromagnets and create their own temporary “found art” metal sculptures. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
• June 6 & 7: All aboard for rail-related fun!
