Spring inspires artists at Sac State

Fine-art events are springing up at California State University, Sacramento. The university’s art department has scheduled several exhibits, lectures and other presentations throughout March.

Former Sac State professors Steve Kaltenbach, Peter Vanden Berge and Jerry Walburg will share their memories of TB9 during a discussion from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in Kadema Hall Room 145.

TB9 refers to Temporary Building 9 at the University of California, Davis, which birthed a ceramics revolution in the 1960s and ’70s. The professors emeritus were among the first generation of TB9 grad students.

Hearne Pardee, chair of the Art and Art History Department at UC Davis, will present an exhibit at Kadema’s Robert Else Gallery, “Souvenir: New Caledonia.” Pardee works in oils, acrylics and collage. The exhibit runs March 10 to 21.

Pardee will be part of a double lecture Thursday, March 13. He will present an artist’s talk in Kadema 145 at 5:30 p.m. At 7 p.m., Katherine Burnett will present a lecture, “Speculations on Why Originality Can’t Be a ‘Traditional Chinese’ Value (When It Is).”

Burnett is a professor of art history at UC Davis and director of its East Asian studies program.

A reception for both artists will be held in the Else Gallery at 6 p.m.

On Wednesday, March 12, Sac State art professor Ian Harvey and art professor Emeritus Koo Kyung Sook, from Chungnam National University in South Korea, will present a public lecture from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at the University Library Gallery. Harvey and Koo are co-curators, with Korean art critic Kim Jin Ha, of “The Land and the People,” an exhibition of Korean prints at the Library Gallery.
