Crummett’s work on display at MHCC

The Fireplace Gallery at Mt. Hood Community College is hosting a free art exhibit by Mark Crummett called “Ghosts in the Machine” Jan. 2-30.

Crummett said his photographs “play with scale, but at the same time, touch on deeper ideas of our relationships with technology, the world around us, with each other and with ourselves.”

He often distorts the scale, which makes figures appear bigger and produces a playful, dreamlike quality to his images.

The Fireplace Gallery is in the Student Union on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark St. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. Parking is free, no permit required.

MHCC announces more Lunch and Learn Conversations

The community is invited to these free events, held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Student Union Lounge. The series engages community members in discussions about ideas critical to their daily lives and Oregon’s future.

• War — Where Does the Battlefield End?

“Life After War: Photography and Oral Histories of Coming Home” will be led by freelance photographer Jim Lommasson. The Jan. 16 conversation will address questions such as when does war end? Does it ever end?

• Marriage — Another Kind of Battlefield

“Something Old, Something New: Exploring the State of Marriage” will be led by Leslie Dunlap, assistant professor of history at Willamette University. The Jan. 30 conversation will focus on the institution of marriage and how it has undergone significant change, especially in the last decade.
