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.

College presents comedy by Alan Ball

reasons for avoiding the proceedings downstairs.

the Studio Theatre. Performances continue at 8 p.m. Friday and

Saturday and Nov. 13 to 22, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16 and Nov. 22.
