About the Exhibition

The Dark Side of Dazzle is a room-sized installation that fills Forsberg Gallery. Lysohir's mother and father both served in World War II
before they met and later married, and she made the piece to remember and honor their service. 
The installation combines ceramics, paintings, and drawings with situational vignettes that show personal,
interior spaces as well as the large-scall battleship sculpture.
Experience this captivating collection as it resonated as much today
as it did 38 years ago when it was created, the true testament of great art.

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.

Current exhibitions in the Art Gallery are free and open to the public. Posted receptions are free and open to the public as well.
