Immerse In Art
The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.
The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.
Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Art is an experience
In Its Place: A virtual exhibition of work by Curtis Bartone
September 20 through October 22, 2021
Esvelt Gallery is proud to present the work of Curtis Bartone.
Bartone’s work explores how our complex and romanticized view of the natural world and our understanding of wilderness is affected by mythology, religion, art, science, photography, and digital technology. Incorporating science writing, the tragedies of William Shakespeare, and the biblical plagues of Egypt—the work seeks to reveal the tug-of-war between chaos and order; life and death; ripeness and decay; and the tendency of the natural world toward equilibrium and restoration of ages-old cycles.
Artist talk via Zoom on Thursday, September 23 at 4PM PST. (Zoom link will be posted closer to the date of the talk)
This portable collection of curated professional and student artwork is available on a loan basis to the CBC campus community. Currently consisting of over 200 works, including drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures, it enhances the aesthetics of our campus to help raise awareness of art as an integral part of our daily lives.
Pieces have been purchased and donated by the college, community members and businesses. If you or your business would like to donate pieces for the collection, please contact the gallery director.
