The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County is hosting an exhibit of art work that interprets the Sutter Buttes, the small volcanic peaks rising in the middle of the Sacramento Valley floor. Opening with an evening reception on May 10th, Other Views: the Physical and Cultural Diversity of the Sutter Buttes Interpreted Through Art will feature the works of thirteen noted artists working in the mediums of painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics and glass. Many of them live within view of the “smallest mountain range in the world” in Chico, Yuba City, Marysville, Sutter, Colusa and Sacramento.
The artists will share their unique views of many different aspects of the Sutter Buttes, from its natural and geologic features to its storied cultural history. The exhibit will remain at the Museum from May 10th through August 3rd, 2013. The art is available for sale during the show.
