College hosts ‘Inside Out’ art exhibit

The Fireplace Gallery at Mt. Hood Community College is hosting a free art exhibit, “Inside Out,” featuring works by Gabriel Fernandez, April 2-29.

Fernandez’s art is an interpretation of everyday objects in the world, but slowed down to portray a particular scene. He has explored nostalgia, personas of inanimate objects and moods through realism, color, composition and texture.

Fernandez’s work has been exhibited all over the West Coast.

The Fireplace Gallery is in the Student Union on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark St. Hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
