Forney Play “Darrell Forney: Playing Around,” presented by Beatnik Studios Feb. 3 through March 23 Opening reception on Friday, Feb. 3 from 6-9 p.m. Beatnik Studios, 723 S St. 400-4281, beatnik-studios.com In this exhibition, Beatnik Studios celebrates the work of late multimedia artist Darrell Forney, who made a significant imprint on the Sacramento community for decades through his paintings, films, photography, writing and music. His artwork ranged from large abstract oils to collage to acrylics to archival sketches and block prints. (He was perhaps best known for his paintings featuring crows, his sewing pattern paintings, his collages and abstractions and his paintings of large lettered postcards.) Beatnik will be showing a range of his work, much of it on loan from Sacramento City College, where Forney joined the faculty in 1966. Jessica Laskey can be reached at email@example.com. n
