“Water: More or Less” was developed in conjunction with the Art, Science and Sustainable Community Symposium hosted by Richland College. (Sat, Jan. 30, 1-5 pm) The juried exhibition focuses on the role of water and sustainability within the environment.
Paul Villinski lives and works in New York City. His inventive use of recycled materials and found objects captivates viewers by revealing the creative potential dormant in the ordinary. Villinksi’s converted Emergency Response Studio (ERS) utilizes green methods of construction to confront topics local responsibility and art within the community.

Richland Student Exhibition “Nature ReMix”
Richland College Student Art Exhibition
Lago Vista Gallery and other locations on campus.
Jan 28th-Feb 28th, 2010.
Opening reception: Thursday, Jan 28, 12-1 p.m.
Nature: ReMix is an opportunity to submit your interpretations of nature using any art form you choose. Award selections will be based on art emphasizing innovative views of nature, recycled material, and the importance of water to our society.
THEME: Twenty-first century views of nature in art have changed. The ability to define “natural” is influenced by the dramatic developments of DNA altered plants, test tube babies, cloned sheep, global warming, virtual reality and body alterations… Today we realize the fragility of nature as the population of mankind continues to grow. Will nature provide the tools and knowledge to survive into the next century? Can science save us from ourselves? Contemporary art reflects the times. What do you have to say?
Selection: A faculty committee will select art for the exhibit.
Awards: $350.00 in cash awards
