In Formation: Anne Godfrey and Rob Adams, Nov. 15 - Dec. 2

The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present “In Formation”, a two-person show featuring artists and Lane Community College faculty members, Anne Godfrey and Rob Adams. Anne Godfrey teaches photography and drawing and Rob Adams teaches painting and design within the Department of Art and Applied Design. The exhibition consists of both photography and painting.

When asked about what inspires her photography, Anne stated, “I drift with the camera, creating layered images while walking through both new and familiar places. These images transcend a static pictorial representation of landscape space creating a sense of movement and time, more closely representing my psychological and physical experiences.”
In discussing his approach to his work, Rob stated, “I distill images into simpler fields of color, reflecting the way art, through graphic design, has helped reduce the world into marketable products. The simplification of concepts into shared symbols and icons has always intrigued me. Humor and an appreciation of the absurd are vital to me.”

The show runs from November 15th through December 2nd. A lecture featuring both artists will be held on November 18th at 3:00 pm with a reception immediately following at 4:00.

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