Joint Venture
This exhibit brings together dozens of photographers’ works to create delicious combinations and possibilities from throughout the modern history of photography. Brought together from the 800 plus piece collection of Dr. Barry Ramer and pieces from other contemporary artists in the medium, Joint Venture is the combining of the contemporary with the vintage, inspiration with complexity, and fluidity within genres. The thread holding this compilation together is the presence of people and their pleasures and pains: genres are de-emphasized and sub-themes like sexuality, intercultural relations, gender politics, and division emerge. Co-curated by Renny Pritikin and Matthias Geiger.

Joseph Selle’s Fox Movie Flash: Mid-Century Street Vendor...
Joseph Selle owned and operated Fox Movie Flash—a San Francisco street vendor photographic firm—that took souvenir portraits of tourists and shoppers, which could be purchased for $1 sight unseen. Over a million surviving negatives were amassed during the 1950s to the 1970s that till this exhibit had not been archived or shown. This is truly a collection of “surprise photography” where not all the images are perfectly focused or of lasting value, but in a sea of duds a gem or pleasant surprise would sometimes show up at the purchaser’s door. Curated by Renny Pritikin and Andrew Eskin of Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, NY.

Paper Pushers
This exhibition of nine artists—Nicole Fein, Tom Friedman, Midori Harima, Jason Jägel, David Miles, Stephanie Syjuco, Jill Sylvia, Christopher Taggart, and Yuken Teruya—includes work that participates in a range of ways to torment paper that includes cutting, hanging, piercing, laying on the floor, molding, wrapping, making dioramas, and building ephemeral objects. The larger goal is to find ways to create new meaning using such a modest and commonplace material. Tiny scraps of paper fly through our lives and connect us to each other: receipts and snapshots, scratch paper and baseball tickets, sidewalk litter and newspaper clippings. Paper Pushers pays attention to the overlooked possibilities in the material of our world, and reinvests these ephemeral bits and pieces with a semblance of deferred respect.

Ricky Jay Poster - Sad Museum of Misdirected Ingenuity 2007
Ricky Jay is considered one of world’s greatest slight-of-hand artists, and this double-sided piece was up at his third Nelson Gallery showing during a May 2007 exhibition at UC Davis. The poster describes all of the pieces and materials that were in the exhibition “’Twixt Two Worlds, Or The Uninvited Guest: A Magician At the Séance” and includes an introductory essay written by the artist himself. The multi-faceted artist geared his piece toward the spiritualism phenomenon that occurred in the 1870s, and the exhibit shows the possibility that ghosts took many forms.

Roland Peterson Poster - "Picnic With One Parasol" 1967
Original piece is oil on canvas and measures approx. 68x68 inches. Roland Peterson studied at UC Berkeley and later taught painting and printmaking at UC Davis from 1956 to 1991, printmaking being his main form of art. In the 1960s, while teaching at the University of California, Davis, Petersen began to work on a series known as his Picnic series. Inspired by patterns of light and color that he observed at an annual faculty picnic, the series focuses on a single female figure or a group of figures surrounded by various still life elements relating to a picnic setting and is almost always depicted using bright colors and sharp California light.

The Jeffrey Ruesch Collection: Lithographs by James...
This exhibit honors Jeffrey Ruesch who left his collection to the University. According to Jeffrey Ruda, Professor of Art History at UC Davis, “James McNeill Whistler was the first art star: he cultivated a notorious public image to market both his art and his ideas about art. The results were mixed. His paintings bewildered or even offended most art fans. Each time he gained some public understanding, he would change to a new unfamiliar mode: from Realism to quasi-Impressionism, and from there to Symboliosm. … While he always had critical attention, he never made a secure living until the last ten years of his life.”

Wayne Thiebaud Poster—“Ocean City” 1987
Wayne Thiebaud created the original in watercolor and charcoal on paper. The original piece measures 22.5x30.75 inches. Halation refers to the aura, halo, or hazy color around the edge of a subject; or vibrations of two colors next to each other. Thiebaud says “ I work with my students to understand that there are two ways of rendering light. Halation is a pretty simple trait. Test is yourself sometime. Take a strong light, or even better, go outside. Put the light fairly close to an object and stare until the two views begin to oscillate. They begin to vibrate because the eye will hold its position for a long time. But, because you are seeing two images, stereoscopically, they are never quite perfectly fused. That is how you get halos, or auras.”
