. 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.
