At the edge of campus, beneath the first floor of the Art Building, is a unique and hidden pocket of the university unknown to most UC Davis students: the Basement Gallery, a space run entirely by students for students.
After fourth-year art studio major McKinna Salinas took an introductory class in wildlife ecology and conservation at UC Davis, she translated her curiosity through a series of oil paintings representing the lectures that inspired her. Her show is called Conservation Cataclysms.
Congratulations to Annabeth Rosen for her inclusion in San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum’s exhibition, “Contraption: Rediscovering California Jewish Artists.” The show runs Feb. 22 through July 29.
For the exhibition, Rosen has created one of her largest works, “Wave II,” a static machine of frozen accretion.
“Contraption” presents the work of 16 artists of Jewish descent who have lived in California over the past 150 years. It includes large-scale mechanical installations, drawings, paintings, sculpture, photography and more.
The Art Building is located on Hutchison Drive, about halfway between the Memorial Union and Mrak Hall on the UC Davis campus. There is limited parking behind the building, but there is visitor parking nearby, across the Arboretum in lot VP5.
