Details for joining on Facebook Event page

In this talk, faculty artists Andrea Borsuk, Carmina Eliason, Lesley Louden, Greg Mettler, Sean Peeler and Sylvia Rios will discuss their work that, in one way or another, explores ideas of personal sense of self, sense of belonging or finding a workable path through the ever-changing situations we face living in this world today.

Friday, October 30, 5:00pm Changing Course: anchoring ideas in repurposed materials
Details for joining on Facebook Event page--no account necessary

In this talk, Jamie Abbott, Janet Fine, Angela Gleason, Jane Gregorius, Gina Pearlin and Lynda Watson talk about their artwork in the exhibition. These artists employ a fascinating array of approaches to repurposing the objects and materials they choose to work with: from creating assemblage or video from materials encountered in surrounding environments, to transforming vintage album covers with cryptic painted vignettes, to literally up-cycling refuse from a landfill into a portable tiny house, to reconstituting the accumulations of lifelong creative careers into new artworks.

Navigators showcases the diverse range of artwork made by the many very talented individuals who work as instructors and staff in the Art, Art Photography and Art History programs at Cabrillo College. This exhibition gives our hardworking educators and support staff a chance to share insights into their artistic practice with the Cabrillo students they mentor and the community at large. This opportunity is especially important to our students. Through this display of skills, knowledge, ideas, experience and dedication, students can make critical and inspired connections between what they learn in the classroom and what they see in this exhibition—work from the studios of their teachers—providing guideposts for navigating successful careers in the creative arts.
