Out-of-town news about two talented Fresno visual artists:
San Francisco debut: Leslie Patterson Batty is excited about her San Francisco debut at the Adler & Co. Gallery’s group winter exhibition. The show opened with a reception Jan. 9, and she says there was a great turnout. Her work landed on the Facebook page of a San Francisco arts writer, DeWitt Cheng, who posted the above photo. Batty thinks this S.F. exhibition — which includes two of her heroes, Robert Rauschenberg and Wayne Thiebaud — could open doors for her. It continues through Feb. 9.
For the love of dogs: Nancy Youdelman is part of the group exhibition “Good Dog: Art of Man’s Best Friend” at the Turtle Bay Museum in Redding. She will be showing two works from her “Dogs Are Forever” series. The series began as an homage to her last dog, Romy (1997-2012). “He was a very dear companion and is greatly missed,” she says. The exhibition runs Jan. 31-April 27.
