Art show opens in Niemeyer

By Andrew Griffin

From October 9 through November 1, Kate Simmons’ free art exhibit “Simmer” will be on display at the Alexander Gallery in the Niemeyer Center.

This free exhibit consists of contemporary pieces that Simmons, a CCC art instructor, has made in the last decade of her career, examining themes such as parenthood and childhood through a domestic lens.

Works in the exhibit are comprised of a variety of materials including cast bronze, antiques, wool, clay and human hair. A graduate of both Marylhurst University and Portland State University, Simmons’ work has been exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Craft, the Maryhill Museum and Blackfish Gallery. On October 23, Simmons will give an informal talk at 2 p.m. discussing her work.

The exhibit is open to students and the public alike Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For questions, contact Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu.
