‘Los Trabajadores Mexicanos’ Opens in Alexander Gallery

 A mixed media exhibit by retired CCC art instructor Nancy Travers entitled “Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” opens April 1 in the Alexander Gallery at Clackamas Community College. An artist’s reception will take place on April 30 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the gallery, with an artist talk at 1 p.m.

“Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” (The Mexican Workers) calls attention to migrant workers in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. This exhibition humanizes individuals that painstakingly work the landscape behind the scenes to provide for themselves and their families. Approximately 20 works are included in this exhibition. Travers utilizes acrylic on panel to create her paintings and mixed mediums of photography and hardware cloth in her installation.

Travers taught ceramics, water color and other arts courses at Clackamas Community College from 1969 to 1994, when she retired. Since her retirement she has continued to explore an artistic dialog in both ceramic and painting. Interests of landscape design, property management and the Willamette Valley and its workers have broadened Travers’ explorations.

The “Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” exhibit correlates with CCC’s International Week Celebration and will be on display in the Alexander Gallery from April 1 through May 8. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center at CCC. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during special events. The exhibition is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. For more information, please contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu.
