The College of the Redwoods Art Gallery presents the Art Department 2021 Faculty Exhibition, opening online February 23 and featuring work by Natalia Margulis, Shannon Sullivan, Tova Lund, Benjamin Funke, Lindsay Lacewell Kessner, Gary Christensen, and David Wilson.

The 2021 Faculty Exhibition allows viewers to virtually explore images of paintings, sculptures, ceramic, jewelry and photography, reflecting the diverse ideas and media that CR art faculty use within their individual studio practices. The artists present a range of visuals from luminous photography, intricately subtle sculptures, to boldly abstracted forms. This exhibit offers the opportunity to connect and learn from practicing professionals and demonstrates how these instructors integrate their artistic inquiries into their courses. The work exhibited exemplifies the skills and commitment required for relevant and rigorous contemporary art-making, particularly given the challenges of the ongoing pandemic.

Trouble Under the Big Trees

College of the Redwoods presents Trouble Under the Big Trees, a virtual exhibition of environmentally themed paintings by Northern California artist Linda MacDonald. View image gallery. In conjunction with this online exhibition, a Zoom presentation and discussion of the artist’s work with CR Art Professor Cynthia Hooper took place on Wednesday October 21, 6:00 - 7:30pm, Pacific Time. Watch artist discussion on YouTube.

Trouble Under the Big Trees is an exhibition of paintings that feature innovative depictions of coastal northern California’s iconic redwood trees. With richly descriptive paintings, the artist Linda MacDonald meticulously examines the perceptual characteristics of these magnificent and monolithic forms. The paintings document the material evidence of these trees’ life histories inscribed in their bark: the marring, charring, and subtle disfigurement borne of their obdurate age. MacDonald’s paintings are both highly abstracted and precisely realistic—visually varied and colorful testaments to Sequoia sempervirens’resilience in the face of more than a century of logging and habitat destruction. MacDonald’s visual analysis is also a testament to these trees’ admirable resistance to the destructive effects of climate-driven wildfires, which increasingly menace their historically cool coastal environments.
