Davis Arts Studio Tour Exhibition

September 7 – October 26, 2018











Davis Arts Center presents the Davis Art Studio Tour Exhibition, an exhibit featuring work by each of the artists participating in the Davis Art Studio Tour in October.  Patrons going on the self-guided Davis Art Studio Tour are encouraged to view the exhibit prior to beginning their outing.  The Davis Art Studio Tour falls on the second weekend of October, Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14, from 10 am – 5 pm.  Tickets, available at  Davis Arts Center are valid on both days and are only $10 (ages 12 and under free).  The artwork in the exhibit is hung sequentially corresponding to the artists’ studio map number.  Visitors are encouraged to find work they appreciate in the exhibit, visit those studios and then to visit additional studios near their selections.

There will be a Second Friday Art About! pre-tour reception on Friday, October 12, from 6 to 9 pm.   During the reception, tour artists Magdalene Crivelli, Joanna Kidd, Sara Post and Donna Lemongello will each present a free demo.


Magdalene Crivelli, 6 – 6:30pm

Magdalene Crivelli, ceramicist and mixed media artist, will demonstrate and discuss the technique of sculpting a clay hand.  A master at the figure, Magdalene will have much, much more than hands on display at her studio during the Tour.  Magdalene’s presentation will begin at 6pm.

Joanna Kidd, 6:30 – 7pm 

Joanna Kidd takes the Atrium stage at 6:30pm.  Equally well versed in sculpture, installation art and print work, Joanna will present a printing demonstration to the Second Friday audience.  During the demonstration, she will also discuss her work and process.  During the Studio Tour, you will have the opportunity to view the wide variety of mediums at Joanna’s studio.

Sara Post, 7 – 7:30pm 

Sara Post will demonstrate the way pigments sticks were used in the piece that is on display in the Davis Art Studio Tour Exhibition.  In general, she will also discuss the influence of materials as an element in the way we see art work.  Located in downtown Davis, Sara’s studio is centrally located on the Tour this year and will feature her abstract work.

Donna Lemongello, 7:30 – 8pm 

The final presentation of the evening will feature ceramicist Donna Lemongello.  Donna will demonstrate texturing and carving a clay tile surface.  After Donna’s presentation we encourage you to view her work in the Tsao Gallery and to make sure to add her to your “to visit studio list.”

In addition to the above tour artists, many of the other tour artists will also be present during the reception.
