SHEETS, SHEETS & CAUGHMAN: ART FOR LIVING AND LIVING FOR ART
The Arts Area was a proud sponsor of Sheets, Sheets & Caughman: Art for Living and Living for Art. The exhibition featuring the art of Millard Sheets, Tony Sheets, and Luis “Rick” Caughman was jointly presented by the Ontario Museum of History & Art and the Chaffey Community Museum of Art, February 2 - March 26, 2017. The exhibition explored the long-standing relationship, yet persistent tension, between the fields of fine art and commercial art. Highlighting the artwork of three artists spanning nearly a century, the two museums offered a glimpse into the complex careers of professional artists balancing commercially commissioned work with personal creativity. The Arts Area created the exhibition guide, consulted on the planning committee, and moderated the panel discussion with artists Tony Sheets and Rick Caughman at the opening VIP reception.
