    "Face Yourself" at the Elliott Fouts Gallery is a show of self-portraits by artists who are not, for the most part, known for their figurative work. The result is a show that ranges from a straightforward, traditional self- portrait by Bryan Mark Taylor to a psychologically fraught painting by John Tarahteeff, who depicts himself as a sailor in a beached boat with a broken mast.

    John Tarahteeff's "Marooned" is one of many evocative self-portraits painted by artists who normally avoid the genre.

    "As John Turner Come Up Out of the Amazon River" is an outsider piece, part of "The Collector" exhibit.

    "Pacemakers" at Beatnik Studios is a show of works by Sacramento gallerists and curators. A gallerist is a person who owns or directs a gallery; not to be confused with a "gallerina," one of those beautiful young women who assist gallery directors. 

    Mick Sheldon's "Remote Controlled Tank Creates the Ketchup Disaster" is part of the "Pacemakers" exhibit at Beatnik Studios.

    On the surface, the works of Irving Marcus and Peter Stegall would seem to have little in common.

    Museums – much like libraries – are places where voices are hushed and noise minimal.

    Sacramento artist Gerald Walburg, left, watches as Jeff Farley swings a hammer during installation of "Sakti No. 15" Monday near the main entrance to the Crocker Art Museum. The metal sculpture was pivoted and tapped into place, then bolted down. The work of Walburg, a former CSUS instructor, is familiar to many – his "Indo Arch" is a few blocks away.

    Walburg and Farley use a little elbow grease and heavy equipment on the shiny and heavy metal work. Meanwhile, inside the Crocker, officials were readying an exhibit that opens Sunday, "Rebirth of a Nation: Travis Somerville's 1963."

    Travis Somerville, a San Francisco artist, prepares to hang "The Only Begotten Son" at the Crocker Art Museum as part of a mixed-media presentation on Somerville growing up in the 1960s in the South. Somerville said the work was in a Martin Luther King Jr. show at the Smithsonian Institution that was seen by King's widow, Coretta Scott King. The artist said he was summoned to a meeting with her and she said the painting was her favorite work in the show.

    Like ancient Greek sculptures of gods and goddesses, China's terra-cotta warriors, on view at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, would have been brightly painted.

    A terra-cotta archer carries traces of the paint applied by an artisan more than 2,200 years ago.

Each has found a new home: Ling in Atlanta, Bo in Beijing and Hong in Lawrence, Kan.

    Abstraction was a staple of art in the 20th century until it was rudely displaced by Pop Art in the 1960s. While abstraction took a secondary role for a time, it is once again popular with artists in the 21st century.

    Josaku Maeda's "Human, space" from 1969, is watercolor and ink on paper.

    Geometric abstraction and narrative figuration vie in Roland Petersen's masterful paintings at the Elliott Fouts Gallery. A mini-retrospective, the show moves from nonobjective abstractions from the 1950s to fresh-off-the-easel works from his renowned Picnic Series.

    "Davis Still Life" 1958

    "Picnic With Checkered Table" 2013

    "The Last Collaborations of Laureen Landau" at Archival Gallery is something of a contradiction in terms. Because Landau died in 2009, she couldn't participate in a process defined as two or more people working together.

    Maria Winkler's "Weaving" combines strips from two paintings, one by her and one by Laureen Landau.
