The Loaded Brush: Recent Watercolors from the Crocker Art Museum Collection

April 9 though July 5, 1998


Two Smoking Tanks, Wayne Thiebaud, 1989, watercolor on paper, Crocker Art Museum Collection


Whereas, Fred Martin combines watercolor and collage in his largely abstract Joe 's Ranch, California (1964), William Allan uses pale washes to suggest the elusive coloration of an isolated Spawning Sockeye Salmon (1976), and Wayne Thiebaud endows Two Smoking Tanks (1989), with a brooding quality. This range is expressed as well in compositions by Gregory Kondos, Gladys Nilsson, Joseph Raffael, Jerald Silva, and Larry Weldon that are also included in the exhibition.

Age Old Remedy, William T. Wiley, 1972, watercolor on paper, Crocker Art Museum Collection
