Works by Artist Susan Schenk on Display at CCC Wilsonville

Article by: Janet Paulson

Clackamas Community College Wilsonville Campus presents the work of collage artist Susan Schenk. The show opened Monday, Jan. 6, and runs through Feb. 27 in the main lobby.

 

Schenk uses discarded materials as paint to foster the idea of finding beauty in the overlooked. She transforms magazines, maps and other ephemera into appealing images. Schenk describes her work, "My art is an invitation to see beyond the apparent. From a distance, my collages appear to be paintings. Up close, they are complicated jumbles of separate parts. These collages are similar to our own lives; appealing when viewed from afar but somewhat surprising when inspected more intimately."

CCC's Wilsonville campus is located at 29353 SW Town Center Loop East, Wilsonville. Exhibit hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibit is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

For further details, please call 503-594-0950.
