1/8 to 3/22: Renee Couture, Recapture
“Recapture” opens January 8th
The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present Recapture, an exhibition featuring work from regional artist Renee Couture. Renee works in multiple mediums with this current exhibition featuring mixed media and sculpture installation.
Influenced by both the personal and the political, I draw inspiration from the historical and social landscape of place. Using my own rural community as a starting point, I articulate the complexity and range of the public's relationship with their nearby landscape. I point to the tension between the literal and conceptual values imbued upon a place, our interactions with wild and managed landscapes, and the convergence of ecological integrity and social well-being. I recognize we have a variety of relationships with nature and I consider how those relationships shift and reshape over time.
My project-based practice moves fluidly between sculpture, photography and drawing, allowing my ideas to dictate media, form, and process. I apply formal and conceptual strategies to re-contextualize and re-appropriate everyday objects and imagery - 2x4s, fencing, travel trailers, flowers, text - to point to social values. My work employs subtle embellishments and alterations that hold meaning to make the work mentally, emotionally, and physically approachable.
My work is firmly rooted in my living in the West, specifically Pacific Northwest timber country. These bodies of work are my attempt at understanding the place I now call home.
This exhibition runs from January 8th to March 22nd. The gallery will be hosting an artist talk and reception on Wednesday, February 21st at 2:00 pm with a reception immediately following.

“Adam Grosowsky: Paintings” opens February 8th
Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present Adam Grosowsky: Paintings, an exhibition featuring work from regional artist and Lane Community College faculty, Adam Grosowsky.
Adam Grosowsky is a mid-career artist who received his BA from Evergreen State College (1981) and his MA (1984) and MFA (1986) in Printmaking from University of Iowa. He studied under Mauricio Lasansky and Keith Achepohl. He is constantly painting, producing 50 to 60 paintings a year, as well as completing numerous commissioned works. Since 2005, Nordstrom Inc. has commissioned him to paint 80 grand- scale works for their flagship department stores across the country.
Grosowsky began to receive serious attention when he started working in large scale oil paintings on canvas in the early 1990s. At that time, he had sell-out shows at Augen Gallery in Portland, the prestigious Hackett-Freedman gallery in San Francisco, and the Kurt Litke Gallery in Seattle. Currently, he is represented by Rare Gallery in Jackson, WY, the Roby King Gallery in Bainbridge Island, WA, and locally at the Karin Clarke Gallery in Eugene, OR.
Grosowsky maintains a studio in Eugene, and has taught painting and figure drawing for the last 25 years as a full-time faculty member of Lane Community College.
This exhibition runs from February 8th to March 22nd. The gallery will be hosting an artist talk and reception on Thursday, February 15th at 2:00 pm with a reception immediately following.
