Willamette Valley migrant workers theme of CCC show

by: NANCY TRAVERS  - 'Los Trabajadores Mexicanos' calls attention to migrant workers. A mixed media exhibit by retired Clackamas Community College art instructor Nancy Travers titled “Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” opens April 1 in the college’s Alexander Gallery. An artist’s reception will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. April 30 in the gallery, with an artist talk at 1 p.m.

“Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” (“The Mexican Workers”) calls attention to migrant workers in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. This exhibition humanizes individuals who painstakingly work the landscape behind the scenes to provide for themselves and their families.

Approximately 20 works are included in the show. Travers uses acrylic on panel to create her paintings and mixed mediums of photography and hardware cloth in her installation.

Travers taught ceramics, watercolor and other art courses at CCC from 1969 to 1994, when she retired. Since then, she has continued to explore ceramics and painting.

The “Los Trabajadores Mexicanos” exhibit correlates with CCC’s International Week Celebration and will be on display in the Alexander Gallery from April 1 through May 8.

The gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and during special events.

The exhibition is open to the public and is free. For more information, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
