Crocker Art Museum

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

• Through April 26: Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne: Paris 1880–1910 — Between 1880 and 1910, Paris was a breeding ground for artistic and literary movements that came to define a shifting, complex society. The art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) epitomized the new tendencies. With his art as a central focus, this exhibition investigates a generation of artists who sought to shake the constraints of French Academic standards. A special focus is the intoxicating gathering of artists, writers, performers, and musicians in Montmartre, where everyone from Toulouse-Lautrec—whose style and subjects embody the times—to Sarah Bernhardt and Paul Verlaine worked amid the swirl of cafés, concerts, circuses, and theatres. This exhibition is organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandria, Va.

• Through May 17: Of Cottages and Castles: The Art of California Faience — William Bragdon was a ceramic engineer trained at Alfred University in New York. He moved to Berkeley in 1915 to teach at the California School of Arts and Crafts and shortly thereafter formed a partnership with his Alfred University classmate Chauncey Thomas, then running a Berkeley pottery studio. Together they created decorative tiles, vases, and sculpture, calling their wares California Faience. The most prestigious of the company’s projects came in the 1920s when architect Julia Morgan commissioned a complete environment of tiles for William Randolph Hearst’s palatial home and grounds in San Simeon. The first exhibition on this subject, Of Cottages and Castles presents the full range of the company’s accomplishments, with an emphasis on decorative pieces emblematic of Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, and Moderne styles, as well as tiles made for Hearst Castle.

• Through May 17: The Nature of William S. Rice: Arts and Crafts Painter and Printmaker — This exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the private world of William S. Rice (1873–1963), an artist and naturalist known for his ability to distill nature to its simplest forms. Rice was a prolific painter of the California landscape but is today better known as a printmaker, one who authored two books on the process and executed every print himself. He applied the classic Japanese art of ukiyo-e (woodblock printing, or “pictures of the floating world”) to images of the West, where he moved in 1900. This exhibition brings to light many of the artist’s accomplishments, including several never-before-exhibited pieces capturing the California landscape before development.

Sacramento

• 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.

• Through January 2016: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum present Two Glorious Expositions, One Golden State: Celebrating the Panama Canal in 1915. The exhibit highlights California’s two large-scale celebrations commemorating the completion of the Panama Canal in 1915 — the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco and the Panama-California Exposition in San Diego. The exhibit will feature historic photographs of structures, people and artwork (some presented in a 3-D view), artifacts including a scale steam locomotive and related promotional items such as travel brochures, tickets, postcards and magazines. The exhibit will be located in the Railroad Museum lobby, adjacent to 19-inch gauge Overfair Railway locomotive No. 1915, constructed for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition and today a permanent part of the museum’s prized collection. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
