JayJay celebrates the hot temperatures of summer with an equally hot exhibit featuring three women artists who share similar interests in the sensuous and luxurious medium of paint. This is also an opportunity to explore the effects of inspiration, mentoring, and influence among artists who share and critique each other’s work.
Both Wendy Kveck and Jane Callister received their MFA degrees at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, where they studied with Mary Warner. Ms. Callister now teaches at UC Santa Barbara and Ms. Kveck is an instructor at University Nevada at Las Vegas. Ms. Callister shows often in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara with exhibitions to note such as the 2006 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art and “Step into Liquid” at Otis Art School, curated by esteemed art historian and curator, Dave Hickey. Ms. Kveck was included in the 2011 International Art + Design Exhibition at Daigu University in South Korea and Aqua Art Miami, 2011.
Mary Warner is a Sacramento favorite, having received her MA at Sacramento State in 1974, and shown many times over the last three decades at Jennifer Pauls Gallery and JAYJAY, as well as the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento. CCAS is so glad to welcome her back as she has chosen Sacramento as her permanent residence following her retirement from the art faculty at UNLV.
