Photographs by Cory Self 

Cory Self is a multimedia artist and current LBCC student. His art spans photography, drawing and cartooning. While he enjoys things of light and uplifting nature, he is greatly inspired by dark unsettling subject matter. He loves getting lost in the process of finding and creating unsettling subject matter in the world around him and bringing it to life. Photographing subjects outside the classical notion of beauty for pleasure allows him to explore the aesthetics of darkness, ambiguity and fear.

 Zoe Hans



An exhibit of mixed-media welding installations from west coast native Zoe Hans, titled Immetal Works of Artgon will be on display through June 8th, in the Calapooia College Center Gallery. Hans, a soon to be LBCC graduate, has been welding since high school on her robotics team. After graduation, she plans to pursue a career as a pipe welder and ultimately become a non-destructive testing technician.

Immetal Works of Artgon plays off the idea of immortal works of art with metal and Argon, the noble gas used in welding. Her show features plasma cut images, while exploring different industrial mediums for art. Through her work, Hans combines artistic skill with the industrial studies she gained through LBCC.

An artist reception will be held in the Calapooia College Center Gallery Wednesday, May 17th from 12 to 1 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
