Recreating Landscape

The College of the Redwoods Creative Arts Gallery presents Recreating Landscape, a joint exhibition by Amanda Salov and Renee Couture, opening February 12. This exhibition is centered on the theme of the natural world, and includes artwork made from a variety of materials, from ceramics to laser-cut images and small-scale installation.

There will be a public reception on Tuesday, February 12, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Both artists are based in the Pacific Northwest. Renee Couture’s work looks at how our relationship to our environment shifts and evolves over time. Her sculptures focus on human-made boundaries, the ways in which we reshape our environment, and consider the roles of climate change and natural disasters on our future interactions with natural sites. The subtle embellishments and alterations hold meaning and connections within her sculptures. Couture received support from the Oregon Arts Commission, a state agency funded by the State of Oregon to create this work.

Urban Garden

College of the Redwoods presents Urban Garden, an exhibition of ceramic sculptures and mixed media quilts by Lisa Marie Barber, on display Oct. 4 through 25. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Oct. 4 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Barber uses ordinary materials, simple tools, and direct techniques to make her colorful, fanciful, and visually abundant work. Influenced by the Mexican Folk art and religious shrines of her upbringing and heritage, her ceramic sculptures and mixed media quilts are playful and celebratory meditations on her experiences and the world around her. Her approach to object making references the informal training of her childhood, as well as the importance of ornamentation and visual abundance in denoting value and importance in a work of art. In this exhibition, Barber’s ceramic-based architectural arrangements bloom with botanical inventions. Her quilts vibrate with uninhibited color and richly descriptive texture.
