Drawn From Clay
Art Exhibit


LBCC Art Gallery hosts exhibitions ranging in scope from the annual student and faculty shows, to exhibitions by local artists of renown, and others with national and international reputations. Artworks by many talented artists are shown here for the benefit of LBCC students and the broader local community.  The artists selected to exhibit their works in the LBCC Art Gallery are from diverse backgrounds in terms of culture, race and gender identity.

Long Beach City College is proud to announce a new exhibition for Fall 2017, Drawn From Clay. This exciting project is part of the SUR: biennial exhibition and features work by four Southern California based artists: Armando Cortes, Yolanda Gonzalez, Wayne Perry, and Fay Ray, who have been influenced by the cultures and artistic traditions of Mexico and Central and South America. Each artist makes artworks in clay, and in other materials and media. Painting, photography, video, and performance evidence are represented in Drawn From Clay. Drawing from the ubiquitous nature of clay and its diverse domestic familiarity, these four young artists stretch the possibilities in both its conceptual foundations and its elastic materiality – even to the point of breakage.

Drawn From Clay runs from September 13 through October 12 with a reception on Wednesday, Sept 20, 2017, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

Date Time
Monday and Thursday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Tuesday and Wednesday 12:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Thursday, Sept. 21 CLOSED
Saturday, Sept. 23 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
