UCC Art Gallery Opens the UCC Visual Art Faculty Show for 2024 (Photo) - 02/02/24

ROSEBURG, Ore., Feb. 2, 2024 – The Art Gallery at Umpqua Community College presents “UCC’s Visual Art Faculty show of 2024.” Susan Rochester, Greg Price, Noelle Herceg, and Tiffany Hokanson collaborate in this 4-person faculty show highlighting their personal art practice and development while teaching college art courses at Umpqua Community College. This exhibition features a wide array of artwork, including fine art books, sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking. The show will run from Feb. 12 through Mar. 13. A public reception and artist talk will take place on Mar. 7, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This special year marks 22 years of teaching at UCC for Susan Rochester and the year she will be retiring as Umpqua Community College’s Arts and Humanities chair and Associate Professor of Art. During her tenure at UCC, she has taught Art History, Photography, Painting, and Book Arts. “My tunnel book series consists of pieces requiring painstaking detail work using sharp blades to excavate cavities in vintage books, and to cut around the edges of images I recombine to craft the content. It is exacting—a slip of a dulled knife can destroy a concept immediately,” states Rochester.

The show will be on display at UCC inside The Art Gallery at the Whipple Fine Arts Center from Feb. 12 through Mar. 13. Hours are Mon. – Fri., 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
