Two-Person Show at Clackamas Community College, Commons Gallery beginning Jan 9

January 5, 2018 Press Release

Clackamas Community College Commons Gallery presents a two-person art exhibition entitled ‘Solitude’ beginning January 9, 2018.  The exhibit showcases oil paintings by artists Joanne Radmilovich-Kollman and Celeste Bergin.

The exhibition runs January 9 through February 23. An Artist’s reception will be announced.

In this new show Radmilovich-Kollman and Bergin explore the theme of simultaneously seeking company while paradoxically having to “go-it-on-their-own”. One artist explained this contradiction as: “We want to be together, but we want to be alone”. This mystifying truth describes the life of a visual artist, as well as most everyone else.

Like the expressionists, both artists are concerned with the expressive and emotional qualities that can be evoked in the tactile quality of the oil paint. The brushwork portrays energy, atmosphere and emotion. Radmilovich-Kollman and Bergin devote themselves to painting full-time plein air (painting outside) as well as in the studio and they actively participate in art events and community building programs.
