. It would be hard to find a couple more engaged in the Sacramento art scene than Fred and Victoria Dalkey.  Fred Dalkey is a well-known local artist who also taught at Sacramento City College for decades.  He’s been making art in Sacramento for over 50 years and has shown everywhere from the Belmonte Gallery to the Crocker.  Victoria Dalkey is the longtime art critic for the Sacramento Bee, and in her 30+ years of reporting has covered nearly every important artist in the area.  Her column is the most widely read – and most widely respected – art writing in the region.  Together they have perhaps the most comprehensive body of firsthand knowledge of Sacramento art history that exists anywhere.  At this Living Library event they will speak about the development of Sacramento art over the past half-century, touching on great artists like Wayne Thiebaud, important gallerists like Sal Yniguez and Michael Himovitz, the role of UC Davis and other schools, and the influence of movements like Pop and Funk. After the discussion they will take questions from the audience, so come prepared!  This will be a very special night with two treasures of Sacramento’s art scene – Don’t miss.

    Victoria I have been following your reviews for years. Took a class from Fred and Kondos. You might remember me from my theater days here in Sacramento. I think Jean Runyon first introduced. The reason for my email is I would like to ask you if you would be interested in viewing the most versatile and talented artist I have found on Facebook. He is from Germany. Name Dean Pausch. He has a unique palimpsest technique and his drawings….well, is there any way you can get on FB and look him up or should I, could I have him contact you.
    Thank you,

    Hi Victoria,

    I was lucky enough to view “Hard Rain,” the soul-stirring 2nd Saturday exhibit by Laura Holhwein at the Solomon Dubnick gallery. I was very interested in your critique before I chose a piece to purchase. Do you think you’ll be doing a review of this show in the near future?

    Kindest regards,
    Laura McAnnally

    Great to read that you are both doing well and are still so active. Fred, your paintings still hang in my home, which for the last 17 years has been on Salt Spring Island BC. If you are ever this way I would love to see you both. Jean

    I enjoy and learn about our local artists by reading your reviews in the Sacramento Bee. I’m a local artist. I’m having an opening at the Gallery at 33rd Street Bistro this coming 2nd Saturday from 6 to 9 pm and would love it if you could come by.

    Thank you for your and your husband’s dedication and passion for the world of art.
