Printmaking Alumni Exhibition & Reception

Celebrate Lane's printmaking alumni and their original works in LCC's art collection.

Lane Community College has installed 18 original prints by alumni from its printmaking program. The prints were collected by the Art and Applied Design Department for the college's permanent art collection.

This is a diverse and colorful collection that that showcases a variety of printmaking techniques, says art instructor Susan Lowdermilk. There is etching, woodcut, screen print, collagraph and monotypes. The artists all studied at Lane and have gone on to rich and diverse experiences. Many have bachelors and masters of fine art degrees from major universities and art schools and some have won sizable scholarships. Others are productive working artists and some are art teachers. The prints are now part of Lanes permanent art collection. We are proud of this collection and excited to share it with the public.

A reception for the artists and for arts appreciators will be held Thursday, December 3, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the exhibit, installed in the south-facing corridor of building 19 near the Workforce Center.

Jessica Burke - Cerebral Spaces - Opens Nov. 16

The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present "Cerebral Spaces" a collective body of work by Salem artist Jessica Burke. The exhibition consists of paintings that reflect on the stream of consciousness chronicling the evolving definition of "acceptable" femininity within the spectrum of gender.

Burke states, "The images I create explore this conceptual construction through the environments that surround the figure. Theses environments represent a cerebral space that underscores the gender performance as the focal point of the work."

The show runs from November 16th through December 3rd. An Artist Lecture will be held on November 19th at 2:00pm with a reception immediately following.

The gallery is located in building 11 on main campus, 4000 E. 30th Avenue in Eugene, Oregon. There is no charge for admission. The Art and Applied Design Department phone number is 463-5409.

The image is titled Somebody Lied to Me.
