Art Chapter’s first membership show a big success

Nearly 100 people attended the CSUS Alumni Art Chapter’s first ever membership show, according to the art chapter President Florence M. Jones.

Under the title Chapter Annual Membership Show (CAMS), the reception held Thursday evening in the University Union Exhibit Lounge featured works from several alumni artists from Sacramento State.

The exhibit will continue until Oct 8.

“It was a great turn out,” Jones said. “This is a very nice show with striking works from all the artists.”

According to Jones the chapter has been in existence for six years. She said the organization does not primarily consist of graduates, but artists who have taken “a sufficient amount of courses” at Sac State.

Approximately 15 artists have their work on display.

Jim Piskoti, an art professor at CSU Stanislaus, juried the show.

“All of the show will be juried,” Jones said.

Some of the artwork on display includes ‘May,’ a mixed medium art form by Michael Zysk and ‘Titanic: Goodwin Family Memorial,’ an extravagant mixed media collage by Norma Maienknect.

The concept and visual aspects of the artists are masterful, influential and domineering.
