Since its founding in 1916, City College has contributed its fair share to the fostering of Sacramento legends. Whether they be faculty or students, many have left campus to have lucrative, fantastic careers, never to return.
Fortunately for City College, some do.
Two Sacramento legends return to campus Dec. 5 to promote their visual art at the Kondos Gallery. The event will feature paintings by the gallery’s namesake, world renowned landscape artist and former City College professor, Gregory Kondos.
The gallery will also feature photography by internationally acclaimed entreprenuer, Russ Solomon. As a former photography student, Solomon worked for the City College newspaper long before founding the multimillion-dollar music company, Tower Records.
The exhibit, titled “Greg Kondos & Russ Solomon: Paintings and Photography,” will run from Dec. 2 through Dec. 15 in the Kondos Gallery.
Visitors to the exhibit will be able to meet both artists Dec. 5 from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Another opportunity to meet Kondos will be Dec. 12 from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
