Jan 2019 wood blocks exhibit imageEUGENE, Ore.— The Lane Community College Art Galleries are pleased to present the work of Christopher Hartshorne in an exhibition titled “Christopher Hartshorne: Iterations,” opening February 11 and showing through March 20 in the Main Art Gallery. An artist talk and reception will be held opening day from 4:00-5:30 p.m.

Hartshorne creates woodblock prints which depict dramatic movement of form and textural organic elements. Using his extensive library of woodblocks as a visual language, he repeats components in new configurations throughout his body of work, printing fresh compositions from older woodblocks by repurposing and printing them in many iterations.

His work combines elements which contrast each other compositionally, interweaving organic elements with architectural, angular components. Using birch wood planks, Hartshorne carves out assembled patterns into one composition, printing woodblocks which suggest a collision of opposing forces—nature, science, and our social spaces—all existing together.

The LCC Main Art Gallery is located in building 11 on main campus, 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene. The galleries are open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information contact Ellen Osterkamp at Art_Gallery@LaneCC.Edu or (541) 463-3432.
