Northern California watercolor artists Dale Laitinen, Carolyn Lord, Barbara Nechis, and Juan Peña are nationally known for their landscape paintings. Each artist works in a California Regionalist Style with a unique interpretation, and has been working in this medium for most of their adult lives. Landscapes and watercolor have a natural affinity to transmute atmosphere and form into works of vibrant beauty.

These artists come from varied backgrounds but show a mastery of the medium by the quality of their work and for their inclusion in: corporate and private collections; popular magazine publications; books; DVDs; and watercolor society memberships. They are also renowned local and national watercolor instructors and are sought after as jurors. All have studied with some of the noted icons of watercolor painting.

The application of watercolor on paper is an exacting and temperamental medium. To create highlights and to support a feeling of luminosity, the white of the cotton paper must be preserved. Color can be built up through translucent glazes with dark paint laid over light to give complexity to the composition.

The idea for this show arose from the desire of curators Allison Spreadborough and Jennifer Tachera to invite these four esteemed Northern California artists to the Sacramento area to showcase a sample of their interpretations of the landscape genre.

Claude Duplat -- All Eyes on Linda: This one man show includes his current work pushing boundaries with photography and photos reflecting movement through daytime time exposures. Claude feels that he has come full circle; having created large woven photos in his darkroom, and now creating his images digitally at home in his lightroom.

Michael Radin -- Foiled Portraits: Michael’s process is to play with the camera until some idea intrigues him enough that he embarks on a project that may last for many years. His work reflects his fascination with images that bend reality and challenge the way we have traditionally looked at things.

His work has been shown in various galleries, both nationally and internationally, and it was published in the 100th Anniversary issue of Lenswork. Robert Frank included Michael in his 1996 book Thank You.

Laszlo Bencze -- Last Stop Roseville: When Laszlo Bencze’s brother-in-law, George, was a kid in New Hampshire his father, fed up with life, would threaten the family by saying, “I’m going to Roseville.” Everyone understood Roseville, California as the end of the line, as far away as you could get. Those words always scared little George.

In 2010 Bencze moved to Roseville. He looked around and noticed that other than the giant Union Pacific rail yard, it was not much different from the little Ohio town where he had grown up.

Dark. Literate. Mildly classy. Plus lasers. And swearing. Squad Patrol is Comedy Spot’s live, main-stage sketch comedy show, similar to Saturday Night Live and Key and Peele.

Enter a world of stories told through jokes: cat detectives; sexual tension on construction job sites; the horror of bats and banana slugs; Casio keyboards; bears and lady boys; time machines; Mr. Trollywhiskers; judicious use of nerd references; Chuck E. Cheese flashbacks; the pathos of good grammar; space hamsters. All theatrically expressed through flamboyant costumes, cardboard props, original songs and videos, sound effects and gratuitous spot-lighting, and of course, verbose language replete with the swears.

Alongside her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values with convulsive results.

Michael Stevenson will direct this 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards Winner for Outstanding Play. The cast will feature returning Capital Stage favorite Amy Resnick, and debuts from Michelle Champoux, Elizabeth Dimon, Jacob Flekier, and Richard B. Watson.

Northern California watercolor artists Dale Laitinen, Carolyn Lord, Barbara Nechis, and Juan Peña are nationally known for their landscape paintings. Each artist works in a California Regionalist Style with a unique interpretation, and has been working in this medium for most of their adult lives. Landscapes and watercolor have a natural affinity to transmute atmosphere and form into works of vibrant beauty.

These artists come from varied backgrounds but show a mastery of the medium by the quality of their work and for their inclusion in: corporate and private collections; popular magazine publications; books; DVDs; and watercolor society memberships. They are also renowned local and national watercolor instructors and are sought after as jurors. All have studied with some of the noted icons of watercolor painting.

The application of watercolor on paper is an exacting and temperamental medium. To create highlights and to support a feeling of luminosity, the white of the cotton paper must be preserved. Color can be built up through translucent glazes with dark paint laid over light to give complexity to the composition.

Welcome to Arranged Improv, where improvisers are paired up using the Y.E.S.A.N.D. 3000 Super Computer and forced to put on the best improv set possible. Each show will feature brand new duos, never before seen on stage. The Super Computer has downloaded hours and hours of improv shows from the past eight years and will meticulously pair up two random performers that have never been on a duos team before. And at the end of each set, the computer will grade its choices. Hosted by Chris Emery and Y.E.S.A.N.D. 3000.

Dark. Literate. Mildly classy. Plus lasers. And swearing. Squad Patrol is Comedy Spot’s live, main-stage sketch comedy show, similar to Saturday Night Live and Key and Peele.

Enter a world of stories told through jokes: cat detectives; sexual tension on construction job sites; the horror of bats and banana slugs; Casio keyboards; bears and lady boys; time machines; Mr. Trollywhiskers; judicious use of nerd references; Chuck E. Cheese flashbacks; the pathos of good grammar; space hamsters. All theatrically expressed through flamboyant costumes, cardboard props, original songs and videos, sound effects and gratuitous spot-lighting, and of course, verbose language replete with the swears.

Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values with convulsive results.

Michael Stevenson will direct this 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards Winner for Outstanding Play. The cast will feature returning Capital Stage favorite Amy Resnick, and debuts from Michelle Champoux, Elizabeth Dimon, Jacob Flekier, and Richard B. Watson.
