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.

Cost: There is a $3 NABA participation fee. Register with Jon Aull at

Join us for the North American Butterfly Association (NABA)’s Butterfly Count, a citizen science event that celebrates the butterfly diversity of the continent. Participants will gather local data by counting the number of butterflies and species within the count circle, centered on the Reserve. These data become part of a database that allows scientists to answer important questions about butterfly populations and biology in North America. Spend a day with the experts, learn about the butterflies and contribute to science at the beautiful BCCER. Some moderately strenuous walking may be involved.

Wear/Bring: Everyone should wear sturdy hiking shoes with lugged soles, long-pants, bring food and water, and consider mosquito repellent, a hat, and sun-screen. Poison oak is ubiquitous on the BCCER. A butterfly guide (the laminated fold out pocket guide Butterflies of Northern and Central California by Jim Brock is great for this area) and binoculars will be helpful.
