“Its All Relative,” is a group exhibition featuring the works of Jim Albertson, his wife Julia Stagg and a mix of relatives from both sides of the isle.
Longtime Sacramento artist, Jim Albertson was known for his irreverent narrative paintings that pushed the boundaries of social norms. Armed with a wicked sense of humor and a plethora of paintbrushes, Jim tackled taboo subjects with the glee of a kid left alone in a candy store. There was never a subject that was sacrosanct. His art was humorous, satirical, intelligent and refreshing. Jim Albertson, you will be sorely missed.
Julia Stagg, is known for her motifs of women and children in literature. Usually working in pencil, Julia too pushes the norms with twists on archetypes, by presenting narrative pieces. The provocative titles of her works are integral to her visual narratives.
This exhibit is an offshoot of a project Julia worked on earlier this year; creating a 48 page family coloring book, “It’s All Relative.” Eighteen family and friends contributed to this undertaking.
During the month long show, visitors will be able to color pages on an interactive coloring book set up on a laptop in the gallery. Visitors can color virtual pages in the coloring book. Colored pages will be judged and the winner will receive a free “It’s All Relative” coloring book.
In addition to the “It’s All Relative” coloring book, Gallery 2110 will be offering a very limited “Jim Albertson Memorial Coloring Book.” This coloring book consists of black and white drawings by Jim. A percentage of the proceeds from all sales will go to the “Fenix Drum and Dance Company,” a local nonprofit that gives children and adults the opportunity to express themselves artistically through the preforming arts. Members of the“Fenix Drum and Dance Company” will perform at Gallery 2110 on October 7, 2015 at 7:00 pm.
The relatives as in “It’s All Relative” group show are: Tom Albertson, Liz Albertson, Michael Stagg, and Ben Garcia. This eclectic group, related to Jim or Julia, proves that artistic talent runs in families.
Our mission at Gallery 2110 is to support non- profit organizations, which are important to our featured artists. We are pleased to announce that Gallery 2110 and the artists of this show are donating a percentage of all sales to the Fenix Drum and Dance Company.
