The annual Fine Arts Faculty exhibition includes a variety of works of art in a wide range of media. The exhibit provides a look at the aesthetic and educational philosophies advocated by El Camino College Art Department and demonstrates an array of concepts and techniques currently characteristic of the art world.
The majority of works in the gallery are grounded in an academic approach to art study and training. Represented in the exhibition are traditional oil on canvas paintings by Carson Gladson, Mary Hackett, Tom Kidd, Lee Kim and Randall Von Bloomberg; acrylic paintings by Craig Antrim, Jack King in historic recreations, Susanna Meiers, and Harrison Storms; and watercolor paintings by Linda Busch, Rodman de la Cruz, Diane Hayden, and Lawrence Klepper. Varied approaches to drawing in the exhibit include ebony on paper drawings by Glorianne Harris; pencil on corrugated cardboard (monumental landscape/ working drawing) by Diane Hayden; and lacey white ink drawings on colored paper by Jacqueline Freedman. Medora Wildenberg exhibits elegant intaglio/etchings while Annie Malone presents an irreverent mixed media collage, Pink Puddle.
The computer arts area of the department is well represented by an intriguing inkjet print by Joyce Dallal, digital images by Jim Dowdalls, and poetic photograms by Robin Valle. Besides the familiar technique of black and white photographic printing represented in beautiful images by Susan Einstein and Darilyn Rowan, the exhibition includes other methods of photographic printing such as inkjet landscapes by Robert Dalton and inkjet installation stills by Michael Lewis Miller. Additionally Ali Ahmadpour shows color prints, Fireworks and Sandra Trepasso presents color abstractions of New York.
The exhibition also includes a cross section of 3-dimensional techniques taught in the department –delicate jewelry fabrications by Irene Mori and Tina M. Riggs and mixed media constructions by Terry O’Donnell. A wall tableau with clay figure by Susan Elizalde-Holler, handsome Pillow Bowls by Neil Moss and an enigmatic ceramic armor piece, Rugged Individual by Russell McMillin illustrate the breadth of approaches to clay enjoyed by the department. David Patterson’s fanciful perfume cabinet and James Russell’s Duet, originally a model for a much larger public work of art, demonstrate not only the diverse possibilities of the world of art, but the diversity of the Art Department Faculty at El Camino College.
