Crocker Art Museum

• Through Jan. 5: Emancipating the Past: Kara Walker’s Tales of Slavery and Power: African-American artist Kara Walker creates art about the exchange of power and attempts to withhold power from others. Featuring 60 works drawn from the collection of the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, the exhibition includes wall paintings, works on paper and recent work in new media.
• Through Jan. 26: Sky is Falling: Paintings by Julie Heffernan: The artist is known for painting resplendent fantasies centered on her self-portrait in various guises. She employs the refined technique, rich palette, and bountiful detail of historical European painting, but transforms this tradition into unexpected, seductive, and often anxious contemporary stories about self, society and our imperiled environment.
• Through Jan. 26: Passion and Virtuosity: Hendrick Goltzius and the Art of Engraving: Known as the master Dutch engraver of his time, as important for engraving as Rembrandt was for etching, Hendrick Goltzius was a pivotal printmaker at the turn of the 17th century. His engaging subjects and highly versatile technique earned him praise and commissions throughout Europe. The series at the core of this collaborative exhibition, the Life of the Virgin and the Passion of Christ, show Goltzius in all his chameleon-like virtuosity. Focusing as much on technique as on the subjects in the series, the exhibition explores the influence and interpretation of earlier printmakers in Goltzius’s work as well.
• Through Oct. 1, 2014: “Nothing,” the film: Bay Area artist Tracey Snelling is known for her color photography and installation works. Both feature miniature, highly detailed sculptures of shabby motels, rundown apartments and American roadside attractions. She increasingly uses film to express her narratives. Set in the sun-baked town of Twentynine Palms, “Nothing” tells the story of Jane, a young woman whose only escape from her dead-end job and empty relationship comes from role-playing the lives of strangers. Snelling experiments with the boundaries of art and narrative as the fictional Jane confronts her life. The film is on view on the museum’s first floor.
