ART

Folsom

• Through Jan. 8: The Gallery at 48 Natoma presents The Art of Ballet exhibit featuring Keith Sutter’s photography and Kirk Miller’s oil paintings. For more information call (916) 355-7285.

• Through Jan. 11: Of all visual art media, photography is most often referred to as democratic in its accessibility — to photograph takers, makers and viewers. There is some truth to that designation, especially today, when capturing a high-quality image is easy for most of us. However, the processes used to create the photographs on view in American Resonance: Jazz and Dance Photographs from the Bank of America Collection in the Bank of America Gallery inside Harris Center for the Arts were not nearly as simple. Almost all are gelatin silver prints made from negative film, a near-obsolete photography method displaced by digital technology. Beyond their material properties, the images in this exhibition reveal a variety of relationships between photographers and performers. Some present the photographer as an intimate in the scene pictured; others place the photographer with us in the audience. The gallery is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as well as one hour before, and during intermission of, each scheduled performance at Harris Center. Admission is free.

Crocker Art Museum

216 O St., Sacramento • (916) 808-7000 • crockerartmuseum.org

• Through Jan. 11: Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art is drawn from the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The exhibition explores the idea that we are “a nation of immigrants” by considering the varied contributions of Latino artists to American art and culture from the mid-20th century to the present. Featuring nearly 100 works across all media by some of the leading contemporary artists working in the United States, the exhibition will examine how their works express an evolving and particular American experience.

• Through Feb. 1: The Provoke Era: Japanese Photography from the Collection of SFMOMA — The tumultuous period following World War II proved fertile ground for a generation of Japanese photographers who responded to societal upheaval by creating a new visual language dubbed “Are, Bure, Boke” — rough, blurred, and out of focus. Named for the magazine Provoke, which sought to break the rules of traditional photography, this exhibition traces how Japanese photographers responded to their country’s shifting social and political atmosphere.

• Through Feb. 1: Arte Mexicano: Legacy of the Masters showcases the ideals, individualism, and intertwining artistic lives of modern Mexican artists. Composed of 30 paintings and works on paper by nearly 20 artists, the exhibition highlights their varied responses to the post-revolutionary call for a distinctly Mexican visual art. Arte Mexicano will cover a wide range of artists active throughout the 20th century, and will trace the impact of the Mexican Revolution, as well as the influence of Mexican muralism, pre-Columbian traditions and European artistic movements.

Sacramento

• Through November 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum presents the 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 Nov. 21, 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to 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.
