The Crocker-Kingsley exhibition continues a tradition that began in 1927 through collaboration between the Crocker Art Museum and the Kingsley Art Club. Established in 1892 by a group of fifteen Sacramento women, the Kingsley Art Club's mission remains to support arts and culture in the community. Early 2019 marks the 79th Crocker-Kingsley. The exhibition is open to any artist currently living in California, and it attracts emerging artists as well as those who are already established. Past Crocker-Kingsley exhibitors include many of the premier names in California art, including Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, Robert Else, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder, Jerald Silva, and Wayne Thiebaud.
