Pattern's pervasive and intrinsic geometry in the world around us is easily missed. The randomness of thoughts, actions, or events can be couched in the assumption that maybe it is us who try impose order upon a chaotic environment. And of course, we do.

Then and  Now


Works by Chuck Boucher and Angela DeSpirito

THEN and NOW is the first in an occasional series of exhibitions that focuses on the work of our own BCC Alumni. The Art and Design Program has come a long way since its inception in the late 1960s, but its goal has always been to provide a solid preparatory arts foundation experience for the students who enroll here.

We each have, tucked away in our brains, an archetypal image of a tree. The tree can be young, only a few years old, or sometimes hundreds of years old before it is harvested. Its history and experiences are indelibly scattered throughout its structure.



Works by Phyllis Ewen, Lin Lisberger, and Michael Yefko

September 8 – October 21, 2011

Liminality is a concept that connects the works of Phyllis Ewen, Lin Lisberger, and Michael Yefko. A liminal moment can "refer to in-between situations and conditions that are characterized by the dislocation of established structures, the reversal of hierarchies, and uncertainty regarding the continuity of tradition and future outcomes."

Works by Cynthia Swanson, Sand T, and Hannah Verlin

March 11 – April 7, 2010

All forms of art-making embrace the word linear — it is an essential element of visual language. Words such as logic, perception, and thinking seem to be a perfect mate to our notions of line. Terms like value, shape, form, edge, and contour provide the structure through which we can evaluate and interpret art forms and are elemental to our understanding of line.

Experiments, Memories, and Devices

Physical and Illusory Works That Measure Amplify Connect Define

Works by Christy Georg, Richard Metzgar, and Leslie Schomp

January 28 – February 25, 2010

Artists are a lot like Alchemists. They take raw materials and transform them. Whether graphite, or steel, or ordinary things like string and wax, or cigarette butts and maps, a transmutation of materials is the essence for any work of art.



Works by Rob Lorenson and David Shapleigh

October 29 – December 11, 2009

Is there more power inherent in objects when they are larger than life? Or is the power derived merely from an association of the object with human ideals of strength, tenacity, and complexity? As humans we are constantly comparing the world and the objects we encounter in relation to our physical presence.

Placing Color

Placing Color

Works by Brett Baker, Kayla Mohammadi, and Carrie Patterson

September 4 – October 2, 2008

Painting, the simple means of placing color on a flat surface, is extraordinary in its ability to transport us from the context of our daily existence to new places – complete, vibrant worlds within the boundaries of the rectangle. Beyond its traditional role as a place of illusion, the painted surface itself is a location, a destination defined by the artist's actions upon it.
