Upcoming Exhibits

Sam King: Thousands of Little Folds

  • April 12 - May 6, 2021

Sam King, an artist and educator living in Fayetteville, AR, presents Thousands of Little Folds at the Forsberg Art Gallery.

King says, "Though I make abstract paintings, I am responding to my lived experience, which is awash in data and disruption. I am interested in the human need to make information meaningful, and I tend to work at the edge of where that happens. I work intuitively and incrementally, deploying color, shape and gesture to both suggest and negate space and light."

Sam King: Painting Lecture and Demo

King will speak about his work and present a demonstration on collage as a tool of composition.

Crista Ann Ames is a sculptor working primarily in ceramics, wood, and textiles. Through the layering of mythology, iconography and personal narrative, Crista explores how our own animal nature relates to the ways we establish and sustain personal relationships. Raised on a small hobby farm in Washington State, Crista often draws on her own experiences to explore pastoral life, animal husbandry, women’s craft and fertility.

About the Forsberg Art Gallery

Lower Columbia College's art gallery located in the Rose Center for the Arts features twenty foot high walls with ample space and complete flexibility for the display of art. The second level of the gallery is more intimate in nature and displays special items and the college's permanent collection, much of which has been donated. Natural light from a slot skylight gently illuminates the room to enhance the overall experience in the gallery.
