BEFORE THE ALARM Exhibit on Display at Folsom's Three Stages thru 3/10
Folsom Lake College, Three Stages and Sayago & Pardon have announced Before the Alarm, an exploration into ideas of dreamscapes and the subconscious. Before the Alarm will be on view at the Bank of America Gallery at Three Stages, Folsom Lake College until March 10th.
The exhibition aims to recreate the imagery that the subconscious develops according to the different states of sleep. Curated by Gregory Attaway, Pierre Fragoso, and Jasmine Magaña, of Sayago & Pardon, Before the Alarm shows a continuous narrative composed of pieces that act as representations of dreams that could be experienced during a night's sleep. When observed as a whole, the artworks imitate a dream cycle, starting slowly and peacefully and evolving into vivid dreamscapes that captivate and evoke dissonant emotions.
The exhibition will include works from Yoél Díaz Galvez (Cuba), Esterio Segura (Cuba), Roberto Matta (Chile), San Poggio (Argentina), and Moisés Barrios (Guatemala), among others. The exhibition explores the diversity of the Sayago & Pardon Latin American Art Collection and provides a different way of interpreting the artworks that range from realistic to fantastical to the surreal.
The Sayago & Pardon collection is comprised of modern and contemporary Latin American art with over 600 works representing nearly all countries of Latin America and more than 190 of their artists. Encompassing painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture, the collection provides a unique look at Latin American art through the eyes of the organization's founders. The collection is filled with dynamic works that highlight creativity through the juxtaposition of masters alongside emerging artists. From figurative works to the abstract, the Sayago & Pardon collection explores all genres of art to showcase the diversity of Latin America.
The exhibition is open to the public during gallery hours, Tuesday through Thursday 10 a.m to 2 p.m., and one hour before performances at Three Stages. The Bank of America Gallery is located inside of Three Stages on the Folsom Lake College campus at 10 College Parkway, Folsom, Calif.
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College presents touring artists from around the world; partners with the best regional arts organizations, and supports productions by FLC students and faculty.
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College is a $50 million performing and visual arts center that opened in February 2011. Located on the campus, Three Stages includes three intimate performance venues (850, 200, 100 seats), an art gallery, a recording studio, ample rehearsal and classroom space, a full service ticket office plus all the amenities of a state-of-the-art performance venue. Parking is free on weekends and for those buying tickets in advance.
A renaming of Three Stages is currently under way. The new name, Harris Center for the Arts, honors Dr. Brice Harris, Chancellor Emeritus of the Los Rios Community College District, for his many contributions to the Capital Region, including providing the vision and leadership that lead to the opening of this regional arts center.
