Davis Art Center Holiday Sale event

Davis Art Center Holiday Sale event

The 22nd annual Davis Art Center Holiday Sale is upon us, November 30-December 2! This year, the Art Center is hosting more artisan vendors than ever before, with more hands-on holiday activities for kids and adults, and collaborating with more local organizations and businesses. The sale is a special, time-honored Davis tradition celebrating our community and Holiday spirit! Over 70 vendors will contribute a huge variety of exceptional, hand-made products, from scarves and clothes to toys and jewelry, all unique works of art. The Holiday Sale is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Davis Art Center, as every vendor generously donates fifteen percent of their sales back to the Art Center to help bring art into daily Davis life. With items from $2-$200, there is something for everyone at the 2012 Holiday Sale!

Saturate Yolo, An Exhibit of iPhone Images, opens in January

The Davis Art Center will present the exhibit SATURATE YOLO, a display of hundreds of images of Yolo County, captured and edited entirely on an iPhone.

The exhibit, by Dave Webb, will run in the Tsao Gallery from January 5 to February 2, 2013, with a gala reception on Friday, January 11 from 5-7 pm.  Featuring 60+  printed images and a five-frame electronic installation that rotates dozens more images, Webb’s exhibit is presented in conjunction with the City of Davis’s “Phone Art Month,” as declared in proclamation by the City Council on October 25, 2013 (proclamation below). SATURATE YOLO is funded in part by a grant from the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission.

In keeping with the democratic intention of Phone Art Month, Davis residents are invited to post their own phone art during the month of January on a designated Facebook page. The page will go live on January 5, in synch with SATURATE YOLO.
