Deborah Butterfield: P.S. These are not horses
exhibit at Manetti Shrem Museum of Art in Davis, California
through June 24, 2024

Winter/Spring 2024 hours through June 24 are:
Monday, Thursday, Friday: 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday: 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

For more than 50 years, Deborah Butterfield (’71, M.F.A. ’73) has explored the horse — both its form and presence. And yet, Deborah Butterfield: P.S. These are not horses encourages viewers to understand her sculpture as more than representations of the equine world. Taken from the closing line of a poem by Butterfield’s mentor, William T. Wiley, the title emphasizes the sculptor’s commitment to abstraction and her profound investment in material experimentation. The artist’s first solo museum exhibition in California since 1996, P.S. These are not horses surveys Butterfield’s career from her most recent wildfire sculptures to rare early works including ceramics made while studying at UC Davis.

Curated by Rachel Teagle, founding director
On view October 1, 2023 – June 24, 2024
