Gallery Exhibit Features Paintings and Photo Drawings by Christine Canepa

You Will Miss Me When I’m Gone:  Paintings & Photo Drawings by Christine Canepa

The Cañada College Art Gallery begins its Spring, 2013 season with the presentation of You Will Miss Me When I’m Gone: Paintings & Photo Drawings by Christine Canepa, on view from Tuesday, Feb. 5 through Thursday Feb. 28, 2013. Canepa uses imagery of dens, nests, and burrows, and various endangered species to explore ideas around endings, loss, and the speculative potential of parallel worlds.  

A “meet the artist” reception will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 13  from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Cañada College Art Gallery is located Building 9, Room 152 on the Cañada College campus, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd. Redwood City, CA.

The gallery is open Mondays and Wednesdays 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 to 4 p.m.

Christine Canepa's work employs imagery from the animal world as a means of exploring ideas proposed in contemporary physics regarding the existence of multiple dimensions, or a “multiverse”. The work plays with traditional distinctions between abstract and representational imagery, and historic conventions of landscape painting.

Canepa, who grew up in Santa Cruz and lives in Oakland, teaches at San Jose State University, where she received her MFA in pictorial arts. Her artistic practice emphasizes painting, but also includes a variety of modalities and mediums, including installation. She has been the recipient of numerous awards, fellowships and prizes and has exhibited widely in California and nationally.  

The Cañada College Art Gallery presents exhibitions to the public, focuses on an interdisciplinary interpretation of art and culture, and serves the public of San Mateo County, the college community and beyond.

Exhibitions and gallery events are free and open to the public.
