Pleasant Hill, CA – Diablo Valley College Art Gallery presents a treasure trove of fine art, once hidden within archival depths, which has surfaced for this special group exhibition. Over 40 prints, paintings, and drawings by influential artists such as Goya and Chagall, along with those by lesser known artists, will be featured. The works have been carefully hand-selected and compellingly arranged, enhancing the experience of each individual piece. Each wall of selected art provides a window of interpretation, synthesizing a variety of works into story-like vignettes, which express humor, unifies the subject matter, or simply provides pleasing aesthetic symmetry. A variety of design styles, such as Art Deco, Modern and Abstract are represented.

About the Curators: This exhibition is organized by the students of Diablo Valley College’s ART135, Art Gallery Museum Management class, instructed by Professors Leo Bersamina, Kris Koblik and Dean Michael Almaguer.

Special thanks to Professor Arthur King, Gallery Coordinator, for his help in the restoration process.
