Corona artThe Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents Generic Memory, an exhibition sculpture and installation by Sierra College Sandi Escobar. 

"Generic Memory is a collection of handmade artifacts inspired by the historic and contemporary melding of cultures, Spanish and Mexica, Mexican and American. These works speak of cultural assimilation, representation, and an attempt to grasp what remains. They are informed by things I know to be true, things I have been told through oral tradition, and things I imagine to be true, as well as a recorded history through documentation." 

Sandi Escobar was born in 1980, the third of four children born along a migratory path from Tijuana, Mexico to San Francisco, and back south to Los Angeles. Raised within "L.A.’s culturally diverse urban sprawl", Escobar received a BA and MA from CSU, Northridge (2007), followed by an MFA in Ceramics from CSU, Chico (2010). She now resides in Sacramento joining the Sierra College faculty as Professor of Sculpture in 2014.

Generic Memory is on display now through February 16 with a reception/artists talk February 8 from 5:00-7:00 pm. 

Ridley Gallery is located on the first floor of the Library/LR 102, on the Rocklin campus, 5000 Rocklin Rd, Rocklin. Regular hours for Ridley Gallery are 11am -6:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Admission to Ridley Gallery is free and open to the public.
