Ist State-Wide Craft Show. exhibition dates: March 31 thru April 30 1959.
Price: 225.00 USD
Sacramento: Crocker Art Gallery. Creative Arts League, 1959. 4to. unpaginated ( 12 pages). 5 b/w illustrations. The very rare first exhibition catalog to feature Robert Arneson. As far as I can tell this is the first group show exhibition catalog featuring the work of Robert Arneson. The cover shows 2 of his ceramic pieces and the text states that Robert Arneson of Santa Rosa won the Creative Arts League award"Best in Show" Ceramics. The standard biographies list his first one man show as happening in 1960 and his first group show in 1962. This catalog antedates them both, Robert Arneson received his MFA from Mills College in 1958 so this group show occurred shortly after his graduation from Mills College. Fine.
