STOCKTON — Works of art created by faculty members at five northern California universities will be featured at Delta College’s L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery starting this week, part of an effort to educate Delta students about the resources and talent that exist at these institutions.
The “University Faculty Invitational Exhibition” is open to the general public. The show will run Jan. 23 through Feb. 13, with a gallery reception planned for Thursday, Jan. 30 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Admission to the Gallery and to the reception is free.

The latest exhibition is an outreach effort to introduce Delta students and the community to visual arts faculty from the four-year universities where our students most often transfer to complete their bachelor’s degrees.
The Gallery plans to continue presenting university invitational exhibitions from across the state of California as well as the work of Delta College faculty.
Exhibiting artist-professors are selected by Delta College art faculty from the same arts discipline. Specific works are selected by the Horton Gallery director in collaboration with the artists.
This year’s exhibition includes works in printmaking by Martin Azevedo (Stanislaus State University), graphic art and design by Brett DeBoer (University of the Pacific), sculpture by Robin Hill (UC Davis), painting by Brenda Louie (Sacramento State University), photography by Sean McFarland (San Francisco State University), and ceramics by Scott Parady (Sacramento State University).
The exhibition provides an excellent sampling of work by each of the artists, and presents a well-curated display. For information about each of the artists, including digital images and artist statements, contact the gallery director or visit the artists’ websites, accessible through gallery.deltacollege.edu.
