• MHCC Visual Arts puts “The Power of Object” on Display

    "The Power of Object" at the Mt Hood Community College Visual Arts Gallery highlights the work of four extraordinary artists who are also the Visual Arts studio technicians: Jen Fuller (glass) Nes Demirdag (ceramics); Cheryl Fish (drawings/mixed media); and Georgina Wenick (jewelry).

    Jen Fuller

    Fuller is a kiln form glass and steel artist based in Portland. Unlike many artists who work with glass, Fuller is not limited by size and assisted in the creation of a 15,000 pound sculpture commissioned for the Winnipeg International Airport. Inspired by myth, nature and the human experience, her sculptures delve into the mystery we hold within us. Demirdag's scrunched surfaces and disrupted symmetries reveal an artist who constantly pushes ceramics to undiscovered places. Fish is a multi-media artist who is has been drawn to transforming the ordinary into thought-provoking images. Wenick's intricate designs belie a strength rarely attributed to the delicate art of jewelry making.

    The MHCC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit runs from November 2-20, 2015. A reception will be held Thursday, November 5, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the gallery. Hours are Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5 pm; the gallery is closed weekends and holidays.

    The mission of our gallery is to create a welcoming center for artists and to raise student, staff and public consciousness about the importance of art in our community and in our world.
