Share your opinion on natural resources
Leaders from the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District want to know which natural resource issues are most important to residents of the areas they serve. The group has posted a survey about this topic on their website, and results will help guide their future programs. The survey will be open until Friday, Jan. 12, and is available at www.conservationdistrict.org/2017/most-important-natural-resource-issue.html.
California-based artist Leslie Nemour's work will soon be featured at Clackamas Community College's Alexander Gallery.
The "Lessons from the Dark" exhibit is inspired by Nemour's childhood fascination with women on the big screen.
Nemour, an associate professor of art at MiraCosta College in Oceanside, Calif., has strived to capture personas of women in a variety of roles and characters. She uses projector screens as her canvas.
"Lessons from the Dark" will hang at the college from Monday, Jan. 8, to Friday, Feb.2. An artist's reception will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and is free and open to the public.
