Shasta College is pleased to host the showing of “Big Black Drawings and Little Metal Sculpture,” by William Wareham. The exhibition is on display from March 2-April 2, 2020 at the Shasta College Art Gallery. There will be an artist’s lecture on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 11:00-12:00 pm in room 400 with a reception to follow at 12:00-1:00 pm in building 300. This event is free and open to the public.

William Wareham was a fine art student at UC Berkeley in the late sixties. He was a recipient of the Eisner Prize for sculpture at UC Berkeley in 1968 and 1969 and a National Endowment for the Arts Award in 1974. In 1999, he was awarded an artist residency at the Djerassi Foundation. He was an assistant to Peter Voulkos for five years and Mark Di Suvero for six years.

He has exhibited widely throughout California, including solo exhibits at the Oakland Museum Sculpture Court and the Pacific Heritage Museum in San Francisco, and in Nevada, Hawaii, Illinois, and New Jersey. Wareham remains true to his inner drive to capture the viewer’s consciousness through his powerful abstract sculpture.

Shasta College Art Gallery is open Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. For additional information please contact David Gentry, dgentry@shastacollege.edu
