OREGON CITY – The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will present “Cosmic Tree,” an installation of mixed media sculptural works by artist Kanetaka Ikeda Sept. 19-Nov. 30. There will be an informal artist reception Oct. 19, noon-1 p.m. and the artist will speak about his work at 1 p.m.

The exhibition is inspired by Ikeda's fascination with the dream world and time. In these works, he organizes materials to evoke plant-like structures that are colored with spiraling patterns informed by stars and galaxies. 

Ikeda is a Portland-based artist who has shown work internationally. His work has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts. 

The Alexander Gallery is located in the 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. For questions, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or For more information on Clackamas Community College’s art exhibits and performances, visit
