‘Solitary Gestures’ Opens Jan. 13 in CCC’s Alexander Gallery

Article by: Janet Paulson

An exhibition of recent works by sculptor Christopher B. Wagner entitled “Solitary Gestures” opens January 13 in the Alexander Gallery at Clackamas Community College. An artist’s reception will take place on Wednesday, January 15, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the gallery, with an artist talk at 1 p.m.

“Solitary Gestures” showcases approximately 15 sculptural works that explore figurative and animal forms constructed of reclaimed materials such as lumber, hog skin and paint. Wagner’s work aims to emphasize the spiritual or intellectual longings of humans. His formal depiction of both human and animal forms utilizes elongation of limbs and necks to convey a yearning to extend beyond ourselves.

Christopher Wagner received his master of fine arts degree from Edinboro University in Pennsylvania. He was recently chosen to participate in a residency program offered in Portland titled “Glean” which gave artists access to reclaim and utilize materials harvested by Metro.

“Solitary Gestures” runs through Feb. 6. 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., with the exception of campus holidays. 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.
