Arnold Joseph Kemp: I would survive. I could survive. I should survive.

The exhibition’s title, taken from a snapshot of a note in the artist’s studio, references interdisciplinary artist Arnold J. Kemp’s unflinching commitment to a politics embedded within a language of abstraction. His work asks us to consider the sensorial gestures that form the self and a people, the personal and the political, the historical and the present. Kemp stages encounters that invite the viewer into the artist’s aesthetic considerations of himself and the world that makes him. It is within this space that we are able to join him in considering how we are made and how we make ourselves. Guest Curator: Sampada Aranke (Ph.D. ’13)

New Flavors: Collected at the Candy Store

Led by aspiring confectioner turned gallerist Adeliza McHugh, the intimate Candy Store Gallery (1962–92) in Folsom, California, fostered an emerging community of artists in the Sacramento region, becoming a beloved space for artists and collectors alike. Inspired by McHugh’s fierce support of her artists, New Flavors: Collected at the Candy Store celebrates and champions the lesser-told stories of the gallery. The Candy Store was a regular home base for UC Davis students and professors showing at different stages in their careers over the 30-year history of the gallery. The exhibiting group comprises alumni Maija Peeples-Bright, Pam Scrutton, Sandra Shannonhouse, Ann Leda Shapiro and Glenn Takai; teachers Luis Cruz Azaceta and George Longfish; and artists Luis Jimenez, Joan Moment, Gladys Nilsson and Jim Nutt from the area’s greater arts community.
 Curators: Jenna Blair and Susie Kantor

Wayne Thiebaud Influencer: A New Generation

“Wayne Thiebaud Influencer: A New Generation” explores how the professor emeritus, who turns 101 in November, forecast the future of painting through his personal journey to find meaning and reinvention in the medium’s history, in ways that are both current and timeless. Think of this group exhibition as Thiebaud’s classroom operating across time and place, where works of art reverberate with the flow of shared ideas. Nineteen exhibiting artists reflect the breadth of Thiebaud’s influence and honor his dedication to practicing the fundamentals; his penchant to paint the people, places, and objects of daily life; and his passion for looking to the history of art as a source of inspiration.
