Clatsop Community College is pleased to announce a collaborative exchange exhibit of visual arts titled: “Community Ground – Art Faculty from Linn-Benton and Mt. Hood Community Colleges”.
The exhibit, curated by Richard Rowland, CCC Ceramic Instructor, will feature work from 20 art faculty members from both community colleges and will be held in the CCC Art Center Gallery, 1799 Lexington Avenue, Astoria, from January 10th to February 14th, 2013. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, January 10th at 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
The college will host a related studio workshop on Friday, January 11th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm in the CCC Art Center Studios. Contact Richard Rowland or call 503-338-2449 for more information.
Following the workshop on January 11th, artists will conduct a forum and slide presentation from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in CCC Columbia Hall Room 219, 1651 Lexington Avenue, Astoria. This presentation is free and open to the public.
“Community Ground” includes a broad spectrum of genres in photography, ceramics, printmaking, mixed media, digital video, installations, painting, calligraphy, basic design, metalsmithing, jewelry, sculpture and drawing. The vast diversity of materials used demonstrates a vibrant creative approach and a passionate and professional commitment to the visual arts by these two community colleges. The exhibit, “Community Ground”, is intended to explore the way many artists bridge the difficult gap between teaching and making art, both full time jobs that require a high level of commitment and focus to their students and communities. This visual creative communication provides both student and public discourse about the quality and meaning of art. In working with the students, art teachers provide foundational training in skill development and inquiry, reflection, conceptual and critical thinking. Students then begin to develop the tools that will help them discover their own voices, develop a unique way to interact within their communities and help define the cultural landscape. Art gives a way for students and teaching artists to build rich layers of experiences they can share and weave into social fabric.
The gallery space has been transformed into a “reflective corridor” that “shimmers” with content, materiality, utility, and expression. One can see that the art faculty is doing what artists do best, mythologizing nature and the world around them.
