Brian Schmitt's "Bloom" clock will be among the works featured in a new modern design exhibit at the Kondos Gallery.

Home is where the art is in “Design,” the first-ever exhibit at Sacramento City College’s Kondos Gallery to focus on interior and furniture design.

Debuting this Thursday and running through Feb. 27, the exhibit features the work of four Sacramento-area designers: Rob Zinn of the influential art and design company Blankblank; Matthew Lechowick, an adjunct design professor at Sacramento State and Consumnes River College; Brian Schmitt, the founder of Schmitt Design, a company best known for its artistic fabricated metal creations; and designer Curtis Popp of CPopp Workshop and Popp Littrell Architecture & Interiors.

“[It’s] a very lively contemporary show, and each designer really compliments the other because they are all so different,” says artist and Sacramento City College professor Suzanne Adan, who runs the gallery with her husband, fellow art professor Michael Stevens.

The exhibit will fill the 600-square-foot space with nearly 30 pieces of modern furniture and housewares, ranging from Schmitt’s pendant light fixtures, mobiles and wall clocks to Lechowick’s modular shelving to a variety of sleek metal and wood tables crafted by Popp and Zinn. “All of the work really fits well together,” Adan says. “It’s very cool!”

The opening reception takes place this Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. (parking passes are required and are available at the event) and the show runs through Feb. 27. The Kondos Gallery is located on the Sacramento City College campus at 3835 Freeport Blvd. For more information, visit kondosgallery.org or call 558-2559.
