California State University, Bakersfield’s Todd Madigan Gallery is hosting an exhibition of new work by CSUB faculty titled “The Painting has a Dream.”

The exhibition, which runs through Nov. 13, includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography and installation pieces.

“The title of the show is a Sonic Youth lyric and conjures a vivid idea that a painting could possess a conscience,” said Ted Kerzie, CSUB art professor and chair of the art department. “What would a painting dream? Are paintings the record of dreams to begin with? Do paintings dream of three dimensions, wanting to be sculpture, wanting out of the pictorial plane?”

Each artist, all CSUB art professors, in the exhibition brings to this concept an original, independent and mature work or group of works.

The gallery is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 1 to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information please call the gallery at (661) 664-2238.
