Crocker Art Museum

• Through Dec. 31: Claire Falkenstein: Beyond Sculpture — Claire Falkenstein (1908–1997) was one of America’s most experimental and productive 20th century artists. Relentlessly exploring media, techniques and processes with uncommon daring and intellectual rigor, she moved from one art center to another, working first in the San Francisco Bay Area, then Paris, New York and finally, Los Angeles. Her reputation today rests primarily on her sculpture, which was often radical and ahead of its time, yet she was also an inventive painter and maker of prints, jewelry, glass, films, stage sets for dance, public murals, fountains and monumental architectural commissions. Although Falkenstein’s extensive oeuvre can appear bewilderingly diverse, her pieces are based on several distinctive structural systems, which became her personal, formal vocabulary. This retrospective exhibition traces the development of Falkenstein’s work both chronologically and geographically through the inclusion of approximately 65 key works — encompassing nearly every media she explored — from the early 1930s through the 1990s.
• Through Jan. 22: Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art From the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection — Highest Heaven explores a time when art flourished in the Iberian colonial possessions of the Altiplano (high plains) of South America, which stretch from northern Argentina to Peru. Through approximately 107 paintings, sculptures, ivories, objects in silver and furniture, the exhibition traces the development and spread of the Catholic faith through the creation and use of religious art for devotion and instruction. The objects are drawn from the distinguished collection of Roberta and Richard Huber of New York City, built over the course of three decades.
• Through Jan. 29: A Show of Force: Sculpture by Allan Houser (Haozous) Featuring Recent Gifts from Loren G. Lipson — Born Allan Capron Haozous (1914–1994), he became known to the world as Allan Houser and is internationally recognized for his figurative and modernist sculptures featuring Native American people and themes. His parents, Sam and Blossom Haozous, were among the population of Chiricahua Apaches imprisoned for 27 years. The first child born out of captivity, he was raised on the family farm in Oklahoma. With limited formal education and no art instruction, he taught himself to draw, then enrolled in the Painting Studio at the Santa Fe Indian School in 1934. He progressed quickly and soon garnered accolades for his paintings, including mural commissions for the Interior Department in 1938–39. In 1942, he moved to Los Angeles, spending the next five years working in construction by day and painting at night. While there, he saw exhibitions of modernist sculpture, which would influence him as he later pursued 3-D forms. Houser joined the faculty of the new Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in 1962 and founded its sculpture department. He would ultimately create over 1,000 sculptures in stone, wood, bronze, plaster, and clay. This exhibition features 15 pieces in bronze and stone, several of them recent gifts to the Crocker from Loren G. Lipson. Among these is “Force,” a signature work in Vermont marble depicting an eagle and dove, avian metaphors for war and peace that are unique to the artist’s oeuvre.
• Through Feb. 5: Reuniting the Masters: European Drawings from West Coast Collections — This innovative exhibition reunites European drawings that have traveled across centuries and continents to different modern collections on the West Coast. By coincidence or by design, drawings by the same artist, for the same project and even from the same sketchbook, have made their way separately to the West Coast. Bringing these long-estranged drawings together again both illuminates the work and process of specific artists in the rich history of European draughtsmanship and also brings forward the history of drawings collectors, from railroad magnates such as E. B. Crocker to Hollywood actors such as Cary Grant and Vincent Price.
