William T. Wiley, who joined the Department of Art faculty in 1962 alongside Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest and Manuel Neri, and taught until 1976, is featured in a solo exhibition at San Francisco’s Hosfelt Gallery. “Sculpture, Eyes Wear Tug Odd” reflects the importance of what is perhaps the least known aspect of his output—sculpture—through a range of works spanning the last six decades.
Art professor Annabeth Rosen and her art are the cover story for the new issue of Sculpture magazine and she is also featured prominently in a New York Times review.
Sculpture devotes 12 pages to Rosen and her art in the story “Five Conversational Fragments.” “Mysterious, almost astonishing in their originality, even her smallest works have the capacity to amaze and confound, to blow your mind,” the story states.
Rachel Smith (MFA 2020) will be an exhibiting artist in the “East on West” group exhibition of San Francisco Bay Area artists from the Asian diaspora at the office of Senator Scott Weiner in the State of California Building.

Sarah Cain moves beyond the traditional notion of painting within the frame by exploring abstraction and spatial interventions in a wide range of media and found materials. Leading a way into new territories of abstraction, Cain moves fluidly between works on site and her object-based studio practice. Cain was born in Albany, New York, in 1979. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
