‘Idyllic America’ exhibit at MJC

‘Idyllic America’ exhibit at MJC

“Idyllic America: Watercolor Painting” by Doug Sandelin is currently on exhibit at the MJC art gallery.

POSTED November 10, 2017 9:12 p.m.

The Modesto Junior College Department of Art is showing the exhibit “Idyllic America: Watercolor Painting” by Doug Sandelin through Nov. 22 in the MJC Art Gallery on the East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto.  The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and admission is free.


Sandelin, who is from Livermore, is known for his figure and portrait paintings and works primarily as a watercolor painter. He has said that his work is a form of documentation and a study of human behavior.


“My art is about rejection and acceptance,” said Sandelin.  “We all live with this bipolarity and need to choose wisely.  I use imagery of the LGBT community, a mostly rejected community, and present them in an accepted format adapted from Norman Rockwell’s iconic Saturday Evening Post cover designs.”
