Current exhibition

"The Unseen World" by Erica Hanson and "Ruffle Pit" by Junko Iijima

Feb. 12, 2018 - March 23, 2018
Unseen World by Erica Hanson
 
Ruffle Pit by Junko Iijima

Erica Hanson and Junko Iijima, two Portland based artists share the Alexander Gallery February 12th through March 23, 2018. Hanson's exhibition titled, “ The Unseen World,” includes hand sewn and collage imagery on vintage linens that explore mythological, spiritual, religious and cultural archetypes. Her works blur the boundaries between art and craft and investigate the theory that matter can share space weather it is visible or not. Hanson graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in 2008. Her work has been supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council.

Junko Iijima's site specific installation titled, “Ruffle Pit” is an interactive space that welcomes viewer participation. Iijima uses fabric and lumber to create an environment filled with obsessive amounts of hand sewn pink ruffles. In this work, she explores ideas of femininity, comfort and protection. An entry way into this environment invites viewers to enter the interior of the work and experience the installation's physical and metaphorical qualities. Iijima is an Adjunct Arts Instructor at Clackamas Community College. Her work has been shown internationally and supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council.

Please join us for an artist's reception Thursday, February 15 from noon to 1:30 p.m.. The artists will speak about their work at 1:00 p.m.. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center at Clackamas Community College. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For further information please contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu.
