The Schedule of Events for the Art Expedition reception includes:

The Design ART 120 Projects “Pattern, repetition, rhythm and color explorations” runs from November 17-December 5.

The projects presented are focused on explorations of patterns, repetition and scale while researching history of ornamentation.  One project is focused on relationship between black and white while in the second the Bezold effect (one color changed) was applied to create different  mood. Students were reflecting on the patterns from different historical periods while creating their own interpretation.

The last exhibit is from the students in Drawing ART 124, “Artist’s Portraits: Dali, Picasso, Gaudi” showing in the Window Gallery, in the lobby of Building OE 1, from November 17-December 5.

For these works students were researching different artists and their work. The Artists’ Portraits are pencil drawings focused on application of tonal scale and accuracy.

The LRC Art Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Given the current construction on campus, the best parking access is from Lot C.
