Trapeze Acrobats
Clay Vorhes
April 4 – May 25, 2019
Chico, CA – Clay Vorhes creates paintings that skirt the line between representation and abstraction. When seen from afar, these arresting images seem like nonobjective compositions. As one moves close, it soon becomes clear that these paintings are populated by small figures that hang, leap and suspend precariously from the linear frame. These people are performers-acrobats, divers, gymnasts and dancers.
In visual terms, these figures provide accents that offer relief from the stark scaffold of lines. They punctuate the compositions, creating a cadence of organic points and counter-points. In human terms, these figures function as ready access points to the paintings, making inert geometry seem vital and alive. We identify with these diminutive figures. They draw us into the work, pulling us into the narrative by allowing us to marvel at their feats of daring. The French novelist and critic Michel Butor once spoke of the need for artists to populate painting. Vorhes does this literally by turning abstraction into a world full of people who lead lives of precarious balance-just like us.

Join us for a hike through the California State University, Chico’s Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (BCCER) to identify flowers and learn their natural history.

The tapestries of flowers change daily, but some of the more spectacular blooms we can expect include long-tubed irises, scarlet delphiniums, yellow star-tulips, and Sierra fawn lilies. This year's ample rain may make for a great wildflower year! The hike will be a slow-paced 2-3 miles on moderately strenuous (narrow and steep) trails.

There is a $5 charge for this hike (free for students). Participation is limited. For more information, or to reserve a spot, contact Jon Aull at
