‘Six From City’ Highlights Beatnik Art Show

Beatnik Studios salutes spring with “Six from City.” The exhibition brings together paintings by six members of a long-standing critique group established by Art Professor Chris Daubert.

The featured artists include Jill Estroff, Ed Forrest, Christine Nicholson, Laura Carpenter, Chris Markel and Stephanie Fry Rallanka.  Varying widely in style from expressionist landscape to geometric abstraction, these paintings are unified by expressive intensity and a concentration on surface and gesture.  This group of painters, while working independently in their studios, achieved a new-found maturity as a collective, and that shared experience can be seen and felt in this exhibition.  Please come see their fine work.

“Six from City” will be on view March 22 through April 22, 2016, with an opening reception on First Friday, April 1st from 6 – 9 pm. Beatnik Studios is located at 723 S Street in Sacramento’s historic industrial district.

The gallery is open 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Tuesday, 11:30 am to 5:00 pm Wednesday and Thursday and by appointment. (916) 400-4281.  For more information, go to
