Exhibition opens at college gallery
GLENDALE -- “Scissors Paper Rock,” a group exhibition by artists
using stone, steel and paper, opens Monday in the Glendale Community
College Art Gallery.
The artists are Echiko Ohira, Yoshikawa, Todd Frahm, Douglas
Tharalson and Nobuyo Okuda.
Ohira uses paper from any source and twists, folds, colors and
glues it into naturalistic forms. Tharalson fabricates steel remnants
and other assorted rusty items into expressions of cosmic combustion.
Frahm chooses everyday objects such as wrinkled milk cartons and
crushed soda cans as sources for his work. Yoshikawa and Okuda use
minimal forms that occupy monumental spaces using earthly stone.
A reception for the artists will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 13.
Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. Monday
through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday. Admission is
free. For more information, call 240-1000, ext. 5663. The exhibition
runs through Dec. 12.
