RCC shows Berkeley artist
Berkeley artist Lauren Odell Usher is displaying her work at the Wiseman Gallery on the Rogue Community College campus. The exhibit, “Did You Wake Up This Morning,” runs through Aug. 28.
Usher uses linocut prints of everyday people on everyday items, such as bags, toilet paper, pillows and pizza boxes, to visually represent the value the mundane holds and the connections all people share.
Usher has a bachelor of fine arts degree from Oregon State University and a master’s degree in studio art from John F. Kennedy University. Her work has been shown in California and in Florida.
If you happen to be near Grants Pass, OR in the next month or so, check out the show. Would love to hear what you think.by
