Sculptures of Scott Foster Featured in Alexander Gallery Exhibit

 “Fragments, Trophies and Totems,” an exhibition of steel sculptures by Scott Foster, opens Tuesday, Sept. 18, in the Alexander Gallery at Clackamas Community College. The show continues through October 31. 

 Foster’s work explores a variety of animal and human forms utilizing modern materials to convey an ancient feeling. He has had a longtime fascination with unique, individual parts that are used to construct a whole such as antlers, bones and skulls. Inspiration from these forms manifests itself in realistic renderings of welded steel. The exhibition is comprised of free-standing works, wall pieces and installations.

Foster has a long and impressive career in the arts. He has been a character sculptor for Bent Image Lab and Laika studio. He was an integral part of the animated film “Coraline,” creating figures for the stop motion animation. Foster is also the owner of Good, a gallery located on Mississippi Avenue in Portland.

An artist reception will take place Tuesday, Oct. 2, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Alexander Gallery. The artist will be available to talk about the works, and light refreshments will be served. The Alexander Gallery in the Niemeyer Center at CCC is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during special events. Admission is free.
