The biennial, juried Crocker-Kingsley exhibition continues a tradition that began in 1926 through a collaboration between the Crocker Art Museum and the Kingsley Art Club. Established in 1892 by fifteen Sacramento women, the Kingsley Art Club supports arts and culture in the community. The full Crocker-Kingsley exhibition is displayed at Blue Line Arts in Roseville. From that show of 134 works, seven were selected to appear at the Crocker.
This year's selections include:
- Bryan Valenzuela - (DIS)APPEAR
- Ric Ambrose - Brunch at Abbot Kinney
- Mark Goudy - Wave Form Object (#1280)
- Nate Ditzler - In Stride
- Shelley Gardner - Coiffure
- McCormick Brubaker - Blue Morning
- Marianne McGrath - Knots
