Hugh D'Andrade wall painting
Our galley shows always wow me, but this one just knocks me out. It's right up my alley and the work is all first rate. It's just plain fun to visit. The show only runs from February 3 to March 3, 2011, so don't blink.

Artist Hugh D'Andrade (above) actually painted a gallery wall for one piece. I'm already sad in advance knowing that it will be removed when the show ends. I'm plotting on ways to preserve it, but I don't think it's possible.

Lisa Congdon, Mati Rose McDonough, and Jason Munn complete the show with installations, illustrations and graphics. Check these links to their work, some of which is on exhibit at LMC.

You really want to see this show. The gallery is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 12:30-2:30 PM and 5:30-7:30 PM.

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.

Light and high school students

Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.

Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.
