Here are some upcoming displays:
“Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose” – June 11 through Sept. 17
Marks the 10th anniversary of the popular art magazine, Hi-Fructose. Highlighted are 51 of the most remarkable contemporary artists featured between its pages. This one-of-a-kind exhibition brings together artists whose work is not usually exhibited together. Each one is a master of their media and among the best in their field.
“Full Spectrum: Paintings by Raimonds Staprans” – June 25 through Oct. 8
Born and raised in Riga, Latvia, Raimonds Staprans has lived in Northern California for more than six decades – nearly his entire career. He has often claimed that in terms of his education, experience, and personality, he is thoroughly Latvian, whereas his paintings are purely Californian. Many of his paintings showcase the landscape and architecture of the Golden State.
“Kingsley Inspirations High School Art Show” – June 8 through Oct. 1
A Kingsley Art Club tradition, this year’s exhibition features artwork from regional high school students inspired by the Crocker Art Museum’s permanent collection and recent exhibitions. Reception: Sunday, Oct. 1, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
