Mt. Hood Community College Presents Dara Harvey: ‘A Little Bit of Everything’

Posted: Oct.18, 2010


Little green men? Black holes? Bizarre objects? Pat Hanrahan, director of the planetarium at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC), will shed some light on these topics Nov. 1, when he The Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) Visual Arts Gallery presents the works of artist Dara Harvey, Nov. 1 through Nov. 22.

Harvey’s show, “A Little Bit of Everything,” will be displayed weekdays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., at 26000 SE Stark St., Gresham, in the Visual Arts Gallery. Admission is free. A public reception will be held Thursday, Nov. 4, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Harvey is a prolific artist who has created art professionally for more than 10 years. “Motivated by the automatic process and organic thinking, my work is largely a method of inspired scribbling, deliberate interpretations of bizarre mark-making and intuition of form,” says Harvey. She creates “deconstructed characters that are then stitched back together, often in ambiguous or fanciful environments.”

Harvey says her work is “imbued with a love of nature and color, ornamentation, mythology, kitsch and a curious intermixing of dark humor.”
