Schaffron’s work on display at Gallery 1855

365体育投注Gallery 1855 presents the artwork of Marguerite Schaffron through March. The artist’s reception and open house is from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, March 13.

365体育投注While earning her bachelor’s degree in art from UC Davis, Schaffron was known as the “dumpster diver” — raiding the large, steel boxes of discarded art projects and other goodies.

“I knew they contained objects that could, and would, live again,” she said. “Post one MFA show, the artist tossed his Mylar house away and that was when I came up with the reflective, pliable nature of the Mylar and it became key to my photography, and still does.”

365体育投注After graduating in 2001, her life of repurposing discarded objects continues, be it the fruit of a dumpster dive or the discarded paint, wooden tennis rackets, clay or thrift store discoveries.

The galley, on the grounds of The Davis Cemetery at 820 Pole Line Road, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 530-756-7807, email [email protected]365体育投注 or visit www.daviscemetery.org.
