Art Alumni Showcased in Sacramento
Two UC Davis master of fine arts graduates, Lisa Rybovich Crallé (2012) and Richard Haley (2007), have exhibitions at the Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento.
“Bangles” by Crallé fills the vertical space of the gallery with an immersive installation comprised of large, suspended sculptures made of pleather, cloth and artificial hair. Crallé’s sculptures reduce the human figure to its most basic linear form, adorning the gallery like architectural jewelry. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.
She will give a talk at Verge July 28 at 6 p.m.
Haley’s “Rehearsals” includes video, sculpture, sound and text. He investigates the use of surrogates in performance as he documents staged events that involve casts of his body parts; as digital 3D renderings; and as traces of the body, such as the impression one would leave behind if lying down.
Both are on display through August 21.
This is the first of a series of exhibitions by UC Davis art graduates at Verge during the next few months.
