The College of the Canyons Art Gallery featured a public lecture from artist, Jessica Wimbley.
Running from Feb. 3 to March 26, the exhibition is a survey of works Wimbley has created over the past six years Investigating how identity is constructed through portraiture as well as inherited ideals and beliefs.
Wimbley’s complex and poetic portraits are made up of layers of photographic images of herself, her grandmother, great grandmother, and other relatives dating back to the early 1900’s. She also uses Victorian portraits, pop culture images from black periodicals like JET Magazine, and ethnographic images of Native, African, and African American women.
The College of the Canyons Art Gallery is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Those unable to visit the gallery during normal hours are welcome to contact the gallery to schedule a viewing appointment.(c) 2020 SCVTV
