Artists stitch together fabric exhibition (Photo) - 02/01/18

OREGON CITY -- Portland artists Erica Hanson and Junko Iijima bring together two fabric-based exhibitions in Clackamas Community College's (CCC) Alexander Gallery, Feb. 12 through March 23.

Hanson's "The Unseen World" explores mythological, spiritual, religious and cultural archetypes using hand-sewn and collaged imagery on vintage linen. Her work blurs the line between art and craft while investigating the theory that matter can share space whether visible or not.

Iijima, an art instructor at CCC, invites viewers to interact with her exhibition "Ruffle Pit." She uses fabric and lumber to create an environment filled with hand-sewn, pink ruffles. Iijima's work explores the idea of femininity, comfort and protection.

Both artists' work are supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council of Oregon.
An artist's reception will be held Thursday, Feb. 15, noon-1:30 p.m., in the Alexander Gallery. The artists will speak about their work at 1 p.m. Light refreshments will be served
This exhibition is free and open to the public. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., except for campus closures.
