SACRAMENTO, CA, October, 28, 2013—Shimo Center for the Arts is proud to present two wonderful artists.

Kristine Albrecht  has explored women in society through watercolor paintings and clay since graduating from UC Davis with a bachelor’s of arts degree in 1980. While at UC Davis, she studied under Robert Arneson, Wayne Thiebaud and Manuel Neri.  Her current series of work, all in clay, began in early 2013.  It explores individual women inventors and women pioneers who stories have been forgotten or were never widely know.  She has raised two children, was an animator for Gumby cartoons and lives in Santa Cruz, CA.

Tom Thompson is retired from the world of commerce and devotes all of his time to his career as a fine art painter, and church organist.  In 2010 his all pen & ink one-man show  of farms, barns and victorians sold all but two of the 24 art works in that show.  Since then he has had a one-man art show of twelve oil paintings in May of 2013 at the Sacramento Fine Art Center.  And in April of 2013 his small Kansas Farm painting was featured in an Art Show in Dodge City, Kansas where that painting won First Prize/Best of Show, and was used on their 2013 Kansas calendar. In 2013 he had a one person show in Blue Line Arts new members gallery.
