The 40th Anniversary Exhibition at SSU – November 18

Wanxin Zhang has two museum exhibitions in November 2018. At Sonoma State University, Wanxin is a part of the “40 by 40: The 40th Anniversary Exhibition.” From the SSU website, the “40 by 40: The 40th Anniversary Exhibition will feature one work each by 40 significant artists whose work has been exhibited in the Art Gallery since its founding, along with displays documenting the rich—and ongoing—history of the SSU Art Gallery. The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.” In addition to Zhang, the exhibition includes Hung LiuEnrique Chagoya, Mildred Howard, and Susan Rothenberg. The show runs through 8 December 2018. You can see Wanzin’s work at Santa Clara University in the show “Richard Shaw & Wanxin Zhang.” Although best known as a trompe l’oeil painter, Shaw is also a ceramist, having studied with Peter Voulkos and Ron Nagle, among others. This show pairs the two artists in a dialogue about representation of image, and the firmness of reality, alongside themes of the every day versus great moments in history. 30 November 2018
