Pomp and circumstance

Gregory Kondos Gallery at City College reopens after retiring in 1982.

While many believe Sacramento is just a cow town, some of the most famous artists in the world call it home.

Celebrating the opening of the renovated Gregory Kondos Gallery, City College welcomed three of its most famous alumni with an exhibition featuring the work of artists Fred Dalkey, Gregory Kondos, and Wayne Thiebaud.

“I heard about this gallery through a friend and being a fan of art, I just had to see what these artists had to offer,” said Andreya Hall, a City College student. “Especially since they went to this school.”

In addition to having attended City College as students, all three artists served as faculty in the art department. Dalkey retired last year. Kondos retired in 1982, and in 1960 Thiebaud went to teach at UC Davis.
