Located on the campus of San Joaquin Delta College, the LH Horton Jr Gallery presents the Delta College Alumni Exhibition, January 25 – February 15, 2024. Delta College alumni who attended college 2010 – 2020 and have a major or minor in studio arts, graphic arts, or photography were eligible to apply to the 2024 Alumni Exhibition. Many alumni have gone on to 4-year colleges to receive their BFA, including from California State Universities at Stanislaus, San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Jose, as well as UC Davis, University of Southern California, and University of the Pacific, and graduate school at Washington State University, Seattle.

The exhibition juror, Daniel “Atta’ Seifert, selected 39 works made by 21 artists. With a commitment to creating and curating surprising forms of visual art, Atta has forged a varied career, often fusing subversion with disconcerting whimsy. In 2005 artists Annie Owens and Atta co-founded Hi-Fructose magazine, which has become a bestselling art magazine with a global reach.

Atta states, “the work I selected for the alumni show demonstrates the artists’ unique perspectives rather than examples of their direct academic training. It’s interesting to see how respective artists have built upon their studies and training and applied it with their own voice to their work.”

“Like a good mix-tape from the mid-80s or a modern-day playlist, within this group showing at the Horton Gallery viewers will be presented with different “vibes” which moves them from one “visual track” to another. Whether it’s the steamy, noir-powered drawings by Taylor Wick, the child-like paint application found in Prince Valdez’ "Mystletainn & Pochita,” or the conceptual sculpture of Cory Morrison’s miniature representation of a deforested trail, this show is diverse in themes, mediums and approaches. Some works may give the viewer a meditative visual rest, as they appreciate a work’s subtleties (see Zoe Nelson’s Close Comfort and Leaf Bottle), while others sneak up on you (I’d provide an example, but that would ruin the fun, right?).”
