20 Years: The Victor Thomas Jacoby Award

December 8 to January 27

Victor Thomas Jacoby was a local artist whose medium was French tapestry. He was internationally renowned for innovation in his field. When Jacoby passed away in 1997, he left a generous bequest to set up a fund with Humboldt Area Foundation, which would support visual artists and craftspeople, and encourage the exploration of new ideas, materials, techniques, mediums, images, and excellence. Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Victor Thomas Jacoby Award and view the work of over 20 artists that the award has supported. The works of these grantees will be showcased along side Jacoby's tapestries and sketchbooks from the HAC Permanent Collection.

The Sculpture of Dan McCauley

December 1 to August 25

Artist and welder Daniel McCauley of Dan’s Custom Metals learned the art form and technique of welding as a child in his grandfather’s machine shop. “I was always up there and got interested because I could take raw materials and make something,” McCauley says.

McCauley’s scrap art is created with material he finds in scrap yards. The artist’s work is nothing if not sustainable. Turning objects that would otherwise end up in a landfill into things the community can gather around and enjoy is the essence of recycling. He also mimics nature’s art, as he builds realistic and life sized mountain lions and bears. McCauley also hopes by sharing his work he can encourage other people who dream of doing art to embrace their hopes and work to see their own pieces in the public eye.
