CCC Royal Nebeker Art Gallery Presents: The SHIP SHOW

The Clatsop Community College Royal Nebeker Art Gallery will open its 2022/2023 exhibition season with a show celebrating our beautiful environs as well as the bustle and business of a seafaring community in The SHIP SHOW, curated by Ben Killen Rosenberg.  

This exhibit will run from October 13, 2022 through January 26, 2023.  Please join the art department for a reception with the artists on Thursday, October 27th at 6:00 p.m. The gallery reception and exhibit are free and open to the public. 

This exhibit features artwork by the following artists: Lindsey Aarts, Mark Andres, the late James Weldon Brown, Sally Cleveland, Roger Dorband, Annie Eskelin, Kevin Farrell, Anna Fidler, Drea Frost, Friderike Heuer, Nick Knapton, Randy McClelland, the late Royal Nebeker, Henk Pander, Paul Polson, Ben Rosenberg, John Taylor, Kristin Shauck, Lucien Swerdloff, and Noel Thomas. 

Ben Killen Rosenberg,  Clatsop Community College’s Printmaking Instructor, who conceived of and curated the exhibit, explains his concept for this show: 

“When visiting Astoria, I always stop to watch the ships traveling up the Columbia River. Large vessels bringing goods or carrying vacationers from places near and far away pass by– a visual delight for all who see them. Ships are mysterious and romantic; they speak to an earlier time and a slower pace of travel, as they pass through vast bodies of waters.  

“Ships can also be ominous harbingers of cruelty and environmental damage. From news reports I’ve followed, I’ve learned of ships carrying illegal cargo or using slave labor changing the GPS locations to avoid being caught by the few authorities on the “look out. Out at sea, in stateless open waters, the environmental impacts and horrendous labor conditions are monitored by almost no one.  

“This is a show about ships as we know them–cruise ships, tanker ships, container ships, offshore vessels and fishing ships–it’s a Ship Show, which sounds a lot like something we’ve all been saying the past couple of years. Enjoy!”  

The CCC Royal Nebeker Gallery is dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the campus, the local community, and the North Coast region.
