• Landscape Without Boundaries: Selections @ Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

    The artists in and around Davis represent a singularly vital mix of approaches to the idea of the landscape in art. Encouraged by the land in which they lived and worked, our artists used the idea of landscape variously as a way to map psychology, the basis of surrealist images, or the raw material for a freshly invented world. How painting, sculpture, and drawing addressed and reflected the Northern California landscape in the years after World War II is revealed through significant works by artists including Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Bruce Conner, Gladys Nilsson, Martin Ramirez, and Wayne Thiebaud.

    Guest Curator: Dan Nadel
