The Butte College Art Gallery is pleased to announce Work’n Progress, an exhibit by multitalented artist Dennis Wickes. The exhibit will be on display Nov. 5 – Dec. 6 in the Butte College Art Gallery.
A reception for the artist will take place 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Nov. 7. Refreshments will be served and the event is free and open to the public.
Wickes presents two collections in this exhibit - “Art for Art’s Sake” and “Sleeping Beauties.”
“Art for Art’s Sake” is a collection of photographs depicting artists and their favorite works. This series of photographs explores the dynamic creative forces that motivate artists to make art.
“Sleeping Beauties” is a series of line drawings of the nude female form. Wickes describes them as “an exercise in simplicity.”
Until his recent retirement, Wickes taught a combination of digital photography and business courses at Butte College and American River College in Sacramento. He has worked in the graphic design field for 20 years and holds a MS Degree in Communications from Indiana University.
