The CCC Art Student Show is an annual juried event that showcases the talents and creativity of the college’s art students. Art students are invited to submit up to three pieces of artwork created in the art classes in which they have been enrolled during the past year. The show will feature a range of disciplines taught at Clatsop Community College, including graphic arts, basic design, drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography and printmaking.

This year's juror is Roger Dorband, a native of Grants Pass, Oregon. He received a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Oregon before earning a second degree in fine art from Portland State University in 1975. He twice exhibited sculpture in the Portland Art Museum’s Artists of Oregon Exhibition, was included in a national drawing exhibition, and in the Oregon Print Makers’ Annual. He received both public and private sculpture commissions and exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions before turning to photography.

In 1993, Mr. Dorband’s black and white photography was published in Blue Moon Over Thurman Street, a collaboration with renowned author Ursula K. LeGuin. In addition to photographing in the Northwest, he has traveled extensively, creating bodies of photographs from Europe, Mexico, Egypt and India. His photographs are included in numerous private and corporate collections, and in the collection of the Portland Art Museum. LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria recently featured Dorband’s Rogue River work in a one person exhibition.

Mr. Dorband will be present at the reception to give a juror's talk. The show is free and open to the public. The CCC Art Center Gallery is ADA accessible.
