Born in Ohio, Jack Zajac moved to Southern California with his parents as a teenager. During the 1960s, Zajac began creating bronze and marble sculptures that resemble abstract birds, animal skulls, flowing water, a swan form, and contorted animals. These subjects continued to interest him for several decades. One of the featured lots in the upcoming Crocker Art Museum – Silent Auction, presented by the Crocker Art Museum, is Zajac’s sculpture titled Small Swan. The 1961 polished bronze sculpture likely belongs to Zajac’s earliest monumental bronze series.
Another highlight is an oil painting by Clay Vorhes, titled Levi’s Ole Trike. Vorhes is known for his paintings of food, trapeze artists, and everyday objects. The sale also features a lithograph by Gregory Kondos showing the Sacramento River. Executed in 1982, this lithograph is rendered in blue, yellow, and white colors. Kondos has spent decades capturing the landscapes of California. Today, he is considered one of America’s leading contemporary landscape painters.
