Dreams, Aliens and Ghosts: Drawing by Adrianna Oberg
One Week Only!
August 24 – August 31, 2017
The Mendocino College Art Gallery is excited to announce its new exhibit, “Dreams, Aliens and Ghosts: Drawing by Adrianna Oberg” which opens with a reception on Thursday, August 24 from 4-6pm.
Adrianna Oberg is a student at Mendocino College. She has been drawing since the age of four and is currently pursuing an Associate’s Degree for Transfer in Studio Arts. For the last three years she has been working on a series of thirty highly detailed drawings using ball point pen, watercolor and acrylic. Each drawing is densely layered with imagery and text, evoking dream-like environments with multiple narrative possibilities. Adrianna describes her approach as “meditative, hyper-detailed and coming out of solitary, emotionally charged periods of time”.
This student solo show is made possible by the newly formed Friends of the College Gallery Foundation Affiliate Group. This exciting partnership was formed with the goal of expanding the gallery’s role in art education for MC college students and the community at large. For those who are interested in supporting this effort, donations to the College Foundation can now be earmarked specifically for the Art Gallery. In addition to providing an opportunity for advanced students to exhibit their work; the Gallery Affiliate funded a trip to see the Matisse/Diebenkorn show at SFMOMA for 24 art students last spring. For the majority of the students, this was their first time visiting this museum.
Dreams, Aliens and Ghosts: Drawing by Adrianna Oberg runs from August 24 – August 31, 2017
