Cheryl Coon - Bestiary Exhibit - January 4-28

The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present Bestiary, a collective body of work by San Francisco artist Cheryl Coon. The show runs from January 4 through 28. An artist lecture will be held on January 11 at 11 a.m. with a reception immediately following.

The exhibition consists of artist books that draw their central ideas from primordial images, archetypes, ancient rituals and texts, folklore and mythology. Coon states, “I try to investigate the spiritual and the mysterious, patterns in nature versus chaos. So I try to create a space to contemplate the mysterious – everything from the sublimely beautiful to the ridiculously humorous.”

The gallery is located on the first floor of building 11 on main campus. There is no charge for admission. Hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Fridays. Contact: Art and Applied Design, 463-5409.
