Patterns of Change

Presenting Patterns of Change by Kathleen Caprario and Marissa Solini

The Art Gallery at Umpqua Community College is pleased to present Patterns of Change, a two-person exhibition featuring works by Kathleen Caprario and Marissa Solini. Patterns of Change will exhibit Monday, February 8, through Thursday, March 10, 2016. A reception with the artists will be held Wednesday, February 17, from 5:00 – 6:30 pm.

Caprario’s mix-media works look to exterior spaces, echoing patterns of seasons, human interaction with nature, and movement through space. Kathleen refers to these pieces as “wallpaper”, stating that “one’s surrounding landscape, much like wallpaper in one’s home, is an important but often overlooked environmental influence.” These images are also part map, conveying the experience of walking in a dense forest through layers of stenciled leaves and stems.

Meanwhile, Solini’s oil paintings trace patterns within the domestic sphere. Using the apron as a symbol that mirrors patterns of life, she archives daily activities of its user. Showing the aprons hanging -- before or after their use -- she carefully articulates the folds and pattern disruption.

The works by these two artists may appear disparate on the surface. However, upon closer inspection, one discovers they hold together visually and conceptually by the use of repeating patterns -- the use of color, pattern, and shape --, and their social, aesthetic, and environmental influence and feminine identity.

Caprario is an artist and educator who came to the Pacific Northwest from New York City. Her works have been exhibited nationally. Caprario has received an Oregon Arts Commission Individual Arts Fellowship and the Modesto Lanzo Award. She has also been awarded residencies at Ucross Foundation, Jentel Foundation, Morris Graves Foundation, and Playa. She currently teaches in the Fine Art Departments at Lane Community College and Oregon State University. Solini was born and raised in San Francisco, CA, by a family of artists. She works in a range of art media focusing on issues of sexuality, women’s issues, and racial injustice. Solini is a recent graduate from Oregon State University with her BFA in Fine Art. She continues to work at OSU in the Theater Department.

The Art Gallery is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and during special events at Centerstage Theater. The Art Gallery is located on UCC’s campus (1140 Umpqua College Road, Roseburg, OR 97470) in the Whipple Fine Art Building.
