Clackamas Community College’s Newest Exhibit, ‘Simmer,’ Reflects the Human Body in Unique Ways

Clackamas Community College’s newest exhibit is now open in the Alexander Gallery, featuring the work of Kate Simmons.

The exhibit, “Simmer,” calls attention to the cyclical nature of childhood, memory and relationships from the perspective of a maternal lens, and features large-scale installations that reflect the body in physical or metaphorical ways.

“Simmer” showcases approximately one dozen works constructed from materials including human hair, wool, antique objects, cast plaster, clay and printed material that investigate elements of time, connection to thought and characteristics of the material and process.

Simmons is a CCC art instructor. Her work has been exhibited in several regional galleries and museums and has been supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council and Clackamas County Arts Alliance.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. An informal artist talk will be held at 2 p.m. Oct. 23, at the Alexander Gallery.
