San Joaquin Delta College’s Delta Center For The Arts is hosting “2D3D 2011 Figurative Works” in the LH Horton Jr. Gallery from October 6 – November 3, 2011 in Stockton, California. Department of Art Professor of Ceramics and Art Education, Marsha Karagheusian, has two bas reliefs in the exhibition, “Empty Nest” and “Memories Lost”. An excerpt from Juror, DeWitt Cheng, San Francisco Art Critic and Writer, follows:
It is thus always heartening to find work that earns its keep with vision, imagination, craftsmanship and (a word not in current art parlance) heart.2D-3D 2011: Figurative Worksbrings together a selection of paintings and sculptures that focus on the human body and human life, subjects that are never irrelevant, despite esthetic fashion. Abstraction and figuration are not antithetical, as was hotly asserted in the 1940s and 1950s, but complementary, the best work combining both: figuration that transcends mere illustration always has a strong abstract organization; abstraction that transcends decoration always suggests reality, seen afresh.
