Current Exhibition

Painting of two ducks surrounded by fruit and flowers

menagerie by Rachel Kalman and Grace Weston

Nov. 6-Dec. 1, 2023

The Alexander Gallery presents “menagerie,” an exhibition of paintings by Rachel Kalman and photographs by Grace Weston. This exhibition opens Nov. 6 and runs through Dec. 1. An artist reception will be held Thursday, Nov. 16 and the artists will speak about their work at 1p.m. In “menagerie” Kalman and Weston both work from arrangements of meticulously staged objects to create narrative compositions. Kalman's still life paintings juxtapose decorative, kitsch aesthetics with difficult, often traumatic, realities. Weston's photographs showcase miniature scenes from characters and props that explore the human psyche, power dynamics, gender roles and more with a playful overtone.

Kalman and Weston are both Portland-based artists who have shown their work throughout the United States. Kalman’s work has been supported by a SECA Art Award nomination from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Weston's work was recognized as first place winner at the Tokyo International Foto Awards. Join us in celebrating this work. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center at Clackamas Community College. It is open Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. with the exception of campus holidays. For further information about this exhibition, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or
