Current Exhibition

About Time by Mel Ulven

"About Time"

Jan. 3-Feb. 25, 2022

The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery is excited to welcome the community back to its first in-person exhibition Jan. 3-Feb. 25. An artist talk will be held Feb. 9, 1-2 p.m. "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.

Mel Ulven was born in Morehead, Minnesota, and grew up in the Willamette Valley. He attended the Museum Art School in Portland and was heavily influenced by his instructors Louis Bunce, Eunice Parsons, Mike Russo, George Johanson, Manuel Esquierdo, Doug Lynch and Robert Reynolds. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus. It is open Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.

For further information about this exhibition contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu.
