New Exhibit at Clackamas Community College Explores Journey from Initial Inspiration to Decay

Clackamas Community College (CCC) will host the work of artist Tom O’Day Jan. 6-Feb. 7 in the Alexander Gallery.

The exhibit, “this is from that,” explores the processes of artwork from idea to initial inspiration and, finally, its decay. These processes include material organization and chaos, installation, exhibition, storage and destruction.

O’Day is a Washington state artist and educator. His work has been supported by the Artist Trust and exhibited throughout the western United States.

The Alexander Gallery is located in Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of campus holidays.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. For questions, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or For more information on Clackamas Community College’s art exhibits and performances, visit
