Studio artists Katie Herzog and Brenda Saglio display their artwork. Meet the Artist Event on Friday, August 30, 2019. 4-6 p.m.
Sol Treasures Gallery in King City is pleased to announce Mom’s Historical Record, a two-person exhibition by Brenda Scettrini Saglio and Katie Herzog. Highlighting their respective mother’s experiences in King City in the 1940’s and the early 1960’s, the artists use painting and printmaking to represent documents and photographs from family collections and institutional archives. Scettrini Saglio, whose mother served in the women’s branch of the US navy that formed during WWII called The Waves, and whose daughter currently serves in the US Air Force National Guard, incorporates military maps of the former King City base. Herzog, whose mother published a column in the King City Rustler newspaper in the early 1960’s called As We See It, focuses on a portion of the column mentioning a King City High School student protest when a representative of the John Birch Society came to campus.
Brenda Scettrini Saglio grew up in Greenfield, CA and attended King City High School in the 1960’s, where she me Katie’s mom. Recent exhibitions include “Salinas Valley Past and Future” at the Salinas Civic Center (2018), “Year in Reflection” at Open Ground Studios in Seaside (2018), and “Shared Seas” at Monterey Peninsula College Gallery (2017). Brenda was a major influence on Katie becoming an artist, and this is the first time showing together. Katie Herzog lives in Parkfield, and her work is represented by Klowden Mann Gallery in Culver City. A book on her work, “Exegesis, Eisegesis Encaustic,” will be published by Rebel Hands Press in the summer of 2019.
This exhibition is in honor of Geoff Tuck and Allen Scettrini.
