Patricia Fernández in conversation with Steve Gamboa and Jedediah Caesar
Tuesday, December 4 at 5 pm
Todd Madigan Gallery, CSUB
Patricia Fernández will be joined by Steve Gamboa, Professor of Philiosophy at CSUB, and Jedediah Caesar, curator of the Todd Madigan Gallery, CSUB to discuss Here is My Name, her current exhibition at Todd Madigan Gallery. Fernández’s research on the 400 mile trail used by Basque- American sheepherders in the last century led her to create a series of paintings, castings and sculpture at the gallery. Their discussion will touch on sheepherder's arborglyphs found throughout the Sierras, transhumance pastoralism, and the landscape as evidentiary space.
This event is FREE and open to the public
