Crocker Art Museum
216 O St., Sacramento
• 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.
• Through Feb. 26: 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 May 7: Into the Fold: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz collection highlights the diversity, creativity, and technical virtuosity of 20th and 21st century ceramic artists working in Japan. The show features artists whose work is inspired by traditional themes as well as those who work in or are influenced by the avant garde. Tensions between form and functionality, traditional and modern, national and international are often evident across works in the exhibition and within individual pieces. Groupings suggest particular elements associated with the medium’s development, including tea vessels, geometric design and sculptural forms. Some 40 artists, including many of Japan’s greatest living ceramicists, are represented by 75 works.
• Feb. 12 through May 21: JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876–1970, a major exhibition organized by the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, surveys the role that international exhibitions and world’s fairs have played in artistic exchanges between these two cultures. Focusing on Japan’s place in major international exhibitions held on the American continent from 1876 onward, and finishing with a look at Japan’s first World’s Fair held in Osaka in 1970, this beautiful and diverse assembly of more than 100 works examines the influence of Japanese aesthetics on painting and printmaking, ceramics and metalwork, graphic design, advertising, bookbinding and illustration. The exhibition also includes Japanese objects influenced by the West, as Japanese makers took pride in adopting Western forms and manufacturing techniques, while retaining the high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail for which they were famous.
• Feb. 19 through May 14: Two Views: Photographs by Ansel Adams and Leonard Frank opens exactly 75 years to the day after United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 during World War II, authorizing the Secretary of War to designate certain areas as military zones and clearing the way for some 120,000 Japanese Americans to be incarcerated in camps scattered throughout the American West. Canada also participated, establishing the British Columbia Security Commission to forcibly relocate approximately 22,000 Japanese Canadians to hastily planned camps in the British Columbia interior, and to work and road camps in other parts of the country. This compelling collection of photographs — 40 by Ansel Adams and 26 by Leonard Frank — presents two views of internment and incarceration in the early 1940s and provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of reactionary politics, racism, forced separation and the resulting effects on victims.
