CSU Stanislaus University Art Gallery Presents “35 Years in Bronze”

The University Art Gallery in the CSU Stanislaus School of the Arts is pleased to present the exhibition 35 Years in Bronze, which features work by artist Cheryl Barnett.
Cheryl Barnett abstracts the figure in cast bronze sculpture, ranging from small 6” pieces to large life-size 8’ works, unique casts to limited editions of 7 or 12. “I choose the figure as my primary focus in sculpture for its universal identification, complexity and mystery. The human body conveys a multitude of implied messages in a simple gesture. Attitudes, emotions, spirit, or suggestive symbolic relationships can be depicted through form,” said Barnett.
The small sample of the artist’s portfolio can be viewed on her webpage along with her resume, biography, and process page. Barnett can be reached at Merced College, where her subjects include Sculpture, Design, and 20th Century Art History.
All exhibitions are free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible. View maps and directions at For information, contact the School of the Arts at (209) 667-3958 or<>.
