Event Series Event Series: Yoshio Taylor & Pat Mahony

Yoshio Taylor & Pat Mahony

November 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for new, never-seen-before works by Yoshio Taylor & Pat Mahony whose latest colorful menagerie of works expand upon his ideas on the culture and history of ages past.

Yoshio Taylor has worked in clay for over two decades and has become one of Sacramento Valley’s foremost artist in the field of ceramics. Taylor received his master’s degree from California State University, Sacramento in 1979. He went on to University of California, Berkeley where he received his Master of Fine Arts while studying with Peter Voulkos. Currently, he teaches full time at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento.

This exhibition includes works by colorist Pat Mahony whose focus remains centered around how to equally convey dramatic impressions and intensity. Mahony’s paintings in this exhibition are the culmination of a career spent exploring the contrast of light and dark; the results are the closest Mahony has come to absolute abstraction—her ultimate goal. Her work, often large-scaled, emphasizes color, composition and drama. Pat Mahony was born in 1951 in Los Angeles, California. In 1973, she graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara. Her work hovers between abstraction and representation; saturated tones and lush abstraction are combined with the goal of creating the perfect balance between dark and light. Mahony’s subject matter ranges from urban scenes, river landscapes, and still life to figures.

Friday (11am – 5pm) Saturday (12pm – 5pm) & Sunday (12pm – 5pm)
