Artwork by Larry Caveney, a faculty member of The Art Institute of California—San Diego, a campus of Argosy University, is currently on exhibit at The Axis Gallery in Sacramento, California. The Axis Gallery’s show, entitled “Art is a Flag Flying Above a Smoking Battlefield, 12th National Juried Exhibition,” runs from August 4 to August 27, 2017, and includes Caveney’s 2017 acrylic on canvas titled Charles Bukowski. 

Caveney has been a member of The Art Institute of California—San Diego faculty for over 10 years and specializes in teaching art history as well as visual language and culture. Working as a painter, sculptor, and performance artist, he has exhibited both nationally and internationally since 1983, including in Ireland, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Iran, and England. His work is featured in permanent collections at the Asheville Museum of Art in Asheville, NC, and the Casoria Contemporary Museum in Naples, Italy. Caveney holds an MFA from Vermont College.

Caveney was honored to be included in this particular show at The Axis Gallery, in part because of his high regard for the show’s curator, Mat Gleason. In his curator’s statement, Gleason expounds on the show’s title, including stating, “It is 2017, a new world, a smoking battlefield, and there is NO neutrality. None. You say something, you mean it. You post something, you believe it. The wars abound and there is no irony in picking a side (it could be a matter of life or death).”
