An exhibition by eight artists who have a recent association with the Art Department of California State University at Stanislaus in the Central Valley of California, USA, will be on display in the Main Gallery from 9 October until 8 December. Artists represented include John Barnett, Dean De Cocker, Jessica Gomula, Ian Kennelly, David Olivant, Roland Reiss, Gordon Senior and Eleanor Wood.

Five of the artists are American and three are English artists who have moved to California to work for the State University and to develop their own art practice. Although the artists’ works are very different, each individual is concerned with exploring aspects of the human condition. The show includes installations, prints, mixed media works, sculptures and paintings.

The exhibition is part of an exciting exchange project between California State University and Lancaster University. Works by artists associated with the Art Section of the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) at Lancaster University will be exhibited this month at California State University Art Gallery.
