COC Art Gallery Contemplates ‘Life After Life’

The College of the Canyons Art Gallery opens the spring season February 16.

In a collaborative effort with the COC English department, this show combines the work of 19 professional visual artists along with the work of six of the college’s English department faculty members.

The concept for the exhibition was to ask the artists and writers to submit a work, or works, that in some way represent a “contemplation of the unknown,” or more bluntly, death.

“Whatever your spiritual belief, each individual comes to his or her own conclusions about the subject of death. We all experience loss and also must confront our own mortality. This show is not meant to be somber, rather to provoke a conversation on the impact of death on how we live our lives,” said Larry Hurst, Art Gallery director.

“Through the works featured in this exhibit, we can engage with a universal – and difficult – theme in new ways, and come away enriched by others’ experiences and perspectives,” said English professor, Kim Gurnee. “I’m looking forward not only to the exhibit, but also to the discussion between the artists and writers who have contributed to the show.”

The exhibition will be highlighted by an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, February 16 and a ‘conversation with the artists’ that will take place at 6 p.m. the same evening.

A special reading of the written entries that accompany the art will take place in the gallery at 6 p.m., Thursday, March 4.

The COC Art Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors unable to visit the gallery during these hours are welcome to call (661) 362-3612 to make a viewing appointment.
