‘PAREIDOLI’ Opens Feb. 20 in CCC’s Alexander Gallery

Article by: Janet Paulson

A group art exhibition of mixed media paintings titled "PAREIDOLI: Vague and Random Stimulus Perceived as Significant" opens Feb. 20 in Clackamas Community College's Alexander Gallery. The exhibition includes recent works by David Raphael Andersen, Zachary Andersen, Carl Beaulieu, Derrick Bogue, Morgan Buck, Holly Osborne and Justin Montgomery. 

PAREIDOLI consists of about 30 mixed media paintings that explore ideas of facial recognition within grander compositional landscapes. Historically, the term pareidoli has straddled art and religion such as in the works of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and Wenzel Hollar.  "PAREIDOLI" is a contemporary exploration led by David Raphael Andersen, who teaches painting and drawing at Clackamas.  

An artists' reception is schedule for Thursday, Feb. 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Alexander Gallery, with an artists' talk at 1 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 20.

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.
