The Annual Juried Student Exhibition 2020

Each year the Pasadena City College art gallery holds a student art competition that is open to all students who have enrolled in a course in the Visual Arts and Media Studies division that year. A guest juror, typically a distinguished gallery director, curator or art critic, selects and installs a show from the submitted artwork, and awards cash prizes to outstanding student artists. Like many traditions, the PCC Annual Juried Student Exhibition this year had to revision itself for an online socially distant exhibition.   Students were asked to submit up to three works through an online submission process. This year's exhibition was juried by digital artist and independent curator Jody Zellen.

    February 18- April 10, 2020 Jacci Den Hartog: Blood and Bones

    In her recent sculptural works referencing local waterfall shapes, Den Hartog uses steel, aluminum mesh, aqua resin fiberglass cloth and paint on a stainless steel pedestal to create a frozen stopped movement suspended in time. An asymmetrical balancing act, these are solid sculptural realities that evoke organic movement through space responding to gravity and all the natural forces. The work harkens to Lynda Bengalis’ legacy of pours, as Den Hartog also embraces innovative exploration of unexpected media and mixed materials.

    February 18- April 10, 2020 Yo am; I soy: Abel Alejandre and Eloy Torrez

    As a companion show to the concurrent solo exhibition of our 2020 Artist-in-Residence Jacci Den Hartog’s work in the Boone Family Art Gallery, Gallery V will present a tandem solo exhibition of the works of Abel Alejandre and Eloy Torrez. Alejandre and Torrez share an impulse to respect and honor the cultural wealth of Mesoamerican heritage rooted in our Los Angeles communities. As Jacci Den Hartog’s abstracted organic sculptural forms reveal our transient and shifting sense of self, Alejandre and Torrez articulate the complexities of the Latinx hybrid identity construct shedding light on ancestral Mesoamerican roots of Latinx psychology.

    Kori Newkirk, Artist in Residence

    This event has passed.

    The Art Galleries at Pasadena City College are pleased to present artwork from Kori Newkirk. Kori Newkirk creates mixed media artworks often inspired from cast-off objects found in his local environs of downtown Los Angeles. Newkirk harnesses these rescued objects in thought-provoking works that comment on our society. These unexpected impetuses provide a springboard for Newkirk’s investigations into art, as he intersects these creative materials into a fruitful dialog with art history, providing a cogent commentary on our everyday world and what it says about us as a culture.

    Art Exhibition: "Tactile: Function Re-envisioned"

    Event Dates: Feb. 21 - Apr. 14, 2017.

    A three-person show of Lynn Aldrich, Miyoshi Barosh and Doug Harvey presented by the Galleries at PCC. In our Gallery V, as a companion show to the Tim Hawkinson solo in the Boone Family Art Gallery, we present this group show of artists whose works re-envision function, recasting materials into new, unexpected roles in artworks that embody a strong textural or tactile aspect in their materiality as they are reinvented from their original mundane or cast-off status. At times bridging sculpture and painting, these repurposed media enjoy a new life, giving us pause to consider that art fodder is all around us if we can embrace a fresh perspective and open our minds to the possibilities around us.
