The Modesto Junior College Art Gallery presents Process/Progression – a group exhibition of work consisting of ceramics, painting, furniture, jewelry, and digital work – from Monday through March 12 in the Art Gallery on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto.
The art show is free and the Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.
A public reception with the artists will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. March 5, at the Gallery. Refreshments will be served.
The exhibition includes artwork from professors, friends, colleagues and former students who have inspired, taught, challenged and helped MJC Art Professor Paul Berger since the beginning of his studies until present day. Process/Progression is an attempt to visually answer questions often asked by Berger’s art students, including "Why did you go into art?" and "Why did you became a teacher?"
“Hopefully this exhibit will show how the people you surround yourself with in school, in the studio, in the workplace is important to one's growth as an artist and as an educator,” Berger said.
The exhibition features ceramics work by James Klueg, Virginia Scotchie, Bryan Hiveley, Richard Burkett, Eric Rempe, Greg Pierce and Gary Carlos; jewelry by Ingrid Psuty; furniture by Barbara Holmes; painting by Neil Bechtold and Wayne Hulgin, and digital work by Clint Schultz, Sean Mcgrath, Brad Craw, and Timothy Earl Neill.
