Flood in the Art Department

Flood in the Art Department, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. Over the Thanksgiving break there was a water leak in the Art area. It covered the floors with 1" of water. It also got into the offices. They smell swell now. We have fans and heaters running. Art goes on. We will not be stopped!

Fake sign

This is a totally fake photoshop sign labeling the new gallery. We've requested, begged and been promised an actual sign like the cool metal one on the Library. Let the countdown begin! Guess how long until the actual sign is installed and win some swell, yet to be determined, award from the Art department.

Social climber

This isn't art, but it's about an art student. A climbing wall was erected in the middle of LMC as Nov 13 as part of a health fair the college hosted. Erica pretty much smacked down anyone who thought they could scale it faster than her. That's because art students are, well, the best.


Waxed, a new show featuring art at least partly created with wax, opened Wednesday, Nov. 7 in the new LMC Art Gallery inside the new Library. (New is the new new this year at LMC)
The large work in this photo, "Wall of Grids," created by Daniella Woolf, has over 300 small pieces made waxed strips of paper was designed specifically for the space in the gallery.
You'd better get there before Dec 6, because it all comes down then.
Got any good wax lines for us? Wax on, wax off? Waxing enthusiastic? Something about Brazil?

Illustrator class maps LMC

LMC Student Kelly McNamar created this map to LMC, the site of a fictitious UFO landing, as part of an assignment in her Illustrator class. Kelly wants you to know she's "Super awesome." Curtis wants you to know that you should check our schedule sign up for a graphics class next semester so you can be "super awesome" too.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below. Click on it to see it at a larger size.

Photoshop self portrait

Selfportrait Cameron D, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. Cameron Dreger made this self portrait as part of an assignment in his Photoshop class (ART 54). He used photos he shot and assembled them using lots of layer masks. He got the cool textures by photographing clouds and dirt.
He'll be getting an "A" but he doesn't know it yet, so don't tell.

Cool photos from LMC photo class

Randy Hake made this photo "Reflections, Embarcadero Center" as part of an assignment in the "Survey of Digital Photography" (ART 72) class. It first place in its division at the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs competition. Pretty cool, huh?But wait! There's more! This semester's photo class has a Flickr Photo Pool. Here's a slide show of the work students have uploaded to Flickr and sent to the LMC pool.

Art Gallery show

Art gallery show, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. Ebodied, the curent show in the LMC gallery, runs through Nov. 2. It features some startling images by Jocelyn Shu, Alica Debrincat, and Karen Hass.

Faculty show not so bad

The Annual Faculty Art Show was the first show in the new LMC Art Gallery. Located in the new library, it's a wonderful space full of light, and now full of art. Lucy Snow, the latest addition to the department made cool stuff and hung it from the ceiling. The other faculty members didn't make anything as large, or that moved in the breeze. Still, her fellow instructors are still speaking to her.
