Inspired by our region’s rich landscape and golden light, a number of seminal
artists have provided phenomenal support to our local art community, as well as
the community at large. These artists are known nationally and internationally,
and are admired not only for their work, but also for their huge influence as
educators in our major university art programs. These artists are Sacramento’s
art legacy. In this special edition of Arts Alive, we’ll meet painters Gregory Kondos, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alan Post, and sculptors Ruth Rippon and Helen Post to explore their work and its impact
on art and life in the Sacramento region.
