Outdoor Sculpture Exposition Features 30 Sculptors

Article by: Janet Paulson

 Sculptures from 30 Northwest sculptors will be on display during the Outdoor Sculpture Exposition at Clackamas Community College, opening Monday, April 9, and continuing through Friday, June 15. Works in a variety of media and concepts will be displayed throughout the grounds of CCC’s 165-acre Oregon City campus.

An artists’ reception featuring the Tuboh Butoh/Sheri Brown Dance Company will be held on Thursday, May 24, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the college commons outside the Community Center. The dance company will present “Opening/Processional/Divided by Zero” in two performances at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. They will continue to perform in various locations among the sculptures throughout the reception.

The reception will also feature master koto player Mitsuki Dazai performing both traditional and contemporary Japanese music.

The Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition is a tradition at the college started by art instructor Rick True in the early 1990s. This is the sixth show he has organized. “I organize the shows to open eyes and minds to the possibility of creativity and the artists that have the fortitude to tackle difficult but inspiring materials and scale. Sculptors make sculpture because there's little more satisfying than exhibiting the fruit of their concepts and hard labor,” said True.

The shows have helped some artists start their careers, and they've been supported by sculptors of national reputation like Lee Kelly and Michihiro Kosuge. The sculptures range in size from medium to large scale and are created from bronze, steel, wood and mixed media.

This year’s show will feature work from Kelly and Kosuge, as well as Devin Laurence Field, Gilles Foisy, Julian Voss-Andreae, Katy McFadden and many others. For more information about the show, please contact Rick True at 503-594-3038 or rtrue@clackamas.edu.
