Katie Shannon

PCC Cascade presents Katie Shannon's With the Happy Crowd. Shannon writes "My images explore a facet of America's inexorable relationship with the pursuit of happiness, depicting environments where many people congregate in order to create enjoyable moments. I use a camera to interrupt these moments and digital tools to elaborate upon them. These constructed images represent a peculiar and dramatized environment, an exaggerated suggestion of a society in which each individual is incessantly encouraged to seek an impossible fulfillment..." The exhibition runs October 14-November 18, 2010.

Artist talk • 2-3pm • November 15
Closing reception • 3-5pm • November 15
PCC Cascade Gallery • 705 N Killingsworth • TH 102

Dave Siebert

Ditch Projects is also back. For their first show in a slightly new location, Ditch presents Dave Siebert's Get Up With It. The show "reenacts the epiphanies and implosions of rock and roll's forgotten side musicians, pulling from obscurity an assortment of unsung heroes and also-rans of the 1960's and 70's. Choosing a perspective from the drum throne, Siebert hammers out monuments and medleys designed to rekindle the energy of rock's sideline geniuses."

Opening reception • 7-10pm • October 16
Ditch Projects • Springfield, OR • Contact info@ditchprojects.com for map of new location

Clare Rojas, Untitled

Internationally exhibited Clare E. Rojas is speaking next week for PMMNLS.
