Linfield College is pleased to present two new exhibitions of newly created work by Scott Ross and Lucas Coffin.
In the Linfield Gallery, Ross has created a site-specific installation, Present Tense, that addresses themes of compression, pressure, and the duality of familiar/unfamiliar. Present Tense will be on view through Oct. 7.
Coffin’s work, The Winnower, is an experimental media piece exploring the power of relationships between materials, people and communication. The Winnower will be on view in the Nils Lou Gallery through Sept. 9.
Ross, assistant professor of sculpture at Linfield, is building a dynamic sculpture area at Linfield College with course offerings in metal fabrication, large scale/public sculpture, casting and a digital fabrication/3D print lab.
Coffin is a multi-media artist from the St. Louis Missouri Metropolitan area. He received his master’s in visual arts from the University of California San Diego. He has shown his work nationally and he is currently employed by the Visual Art Department at UCSD as the Instructional Media Specialist. There, he aids students and faculty through production and post-production audiovisual technologies in gallery exhibitions, classrooms and individual art practices.
All exhibits are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 503-883-2804 or visit Linfield Gallery at http://www.linfield.edu/art/gallery-now.html.
