Art Exhibit 'About Time' Opens at CCC

UPDATE: The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will be closed through Jan. 28 due to temporary increased COVID restrictions at the college. The artist talk has tentatively been rescheduled to Feb. 9 at 1 p.m.

OREGON CITY – The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will re-open to the public for its winter exhibition, which runs Jan. 3-Feb. 25.

"About Time" is a collection of works by artist Mel Ulven comprised of multimedia collage, drawings and paintings with a primary use of reclaimed materials. The exhibit is a retrospective sampling 30 years in the making. "About Time" is the contemplation of time viewed through the lens of the indefinite, continued progress of existence and events - past, present and future. Ulven was born in Morehead, Minnesota, and grew up in the Willamette Valley. He attended the Museum Art School in Portland and was influenced by his instructors Louis Bunce, Eunice Parsons, Mike Russo, George Johanson, Manuel Esquierdo, Doug Lynch and Robert Reynolds.

An informal artist talk will be held Jan. 12, noon-1 p.m. at the Alexander Gallery. The Alexander Gallery is located in Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of holidays.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. Masks and social distancing are required. For more information on Clackamas Community College's art exhibits and performances, visit
