The Art Chapter has a long history of bringing its members
and the greater Sacramento Community together in celebrating the arts.
HISTORY OF THE ART CHAPTER
Working with the Sacramento State Art Department, the
Chapter has hosted the reception of painter and instructor Wayne Thiebaud;
brought filmmaker Mark Herzig to present “Scherzo” and speak about
In addition to its active on-campus roll, the Art Alumni Chapter
has had an equally active off-campus outreach program. Members of the Chapter’s Executive Board had
given presentations at local community colleges, instructed and entertained
children and brought art to various organizations and schools that would not
otherwise had the opportunity.
The Art Chapter was responsible for the critically
acclaimed, “Sacramento State 50th Anniversary Show,” a juried show
with more than 150 art pieces displayed on four floors of the Sacramento State
Library. Next, the Chapter curated the
very successful annual juried membership show and in 2004 the Art Chapter’s Invitational Exhibition” was presented
in the Sacramento State University Union Gallery. This art show has become the “Annual Alumni
Show held in the Robert Else Gallery at Kadema Hall in June of each year.
It gives our Sac State Alums the opportunity to exhibit
their art work at Sacramento State.
At the beginning of each year we have a Used Book Sale,
sometimes two sales, in conjunction with the Ceramics Student Guild, to
generate monies to pay for the expenditures of our annual Art Ball. With the help and support of the Art
Department, the professors and graduating students, and also the help of our
Chapter members, we all create a wonderful celebration to honor the art students
throughout the campus. It is held in the
Art Sculpture Lab, the Library Gallery, the Computer Lab, and the Ceramics
Department. And the work of the Beginning Drawing students is seen in Kadema
Hall. What began as a small celebratory
event became campus wide.
