Tacoma Community College Environmental Art Exhibit

An Environmental Art Exhibition will occur from Jan. 5 – Feb. 27, 2009, at The Gallery, Tacoma Community College. The reception is open to the public and will occur at The Gallery on Jan. 8, from 4 to 7 p.m.

The idea for the exhibition came from The Gallery Coordinator Jennifer Olson-Rudenko. It supports the educational mission of The Gallery and the goal of the college, to “ensure that all TCC employees and students are aware of, and dedicated to, sustainability principles.” The jury included TCC instructors from the art, English, philosophy, and science departments, as well as a member of the campus sustainability committee. The exhibition focuses on work that contributes to dialogue about our environment with works in a variety of media. The majority of the artists have an ongoing concern with the environment and drew from the body of their work.

Featured artists include Marit Berg, Kathleen Casteel, Melinda Cox, Jenni Denekas, Kyle Dillehay, Frank Dippolito, M. Irene Eggerman, Julia Haack, Connie Hardy, Gail E. Kelly, Melanie Johnson, Karen La Grave, Kristen M. Lawson, Annette Lucas, Bret Lyon, Crista Matteson, Zachary A. Mazur, Dorothy McCuistion, Mary J. McInnis, Ellen Miffitt, William Mitchell, Carson Murdach, John O’Gara, Jason Sobottka, and Sarah Waldo.

The Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To access The Gallery, use the entrance just off South 12th Street between Pearl and Mildred. For more information, contact Olson-Rudenko: 253.460.4306.
