OCAC Instructor Bobbi Woods Exhibits at The Art Gym, Holds Accompanying Show at Private Places

February 12, 2018

Bobbi Woods, instructor in OCAC's Photography Department, is featured in an exhibition at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University.

The Art Gym presents Endings, an exhibition featuring new work by Srijon Chowdhury and Bobbi Woods. Chowdhury and Woods source a combination of recognizable objects and narrative imagery to investigate the structures of myth and materialism. Commonplace storytelling devices are laid bare in the artists’ examinations of memory aided by hyperbole and double entendre. Chowdhury’s dreamlike oil paintings exist between knowledge and emotion, evoking the understanding of the present as part of a larger intuited history. Woods appropriates everyday objects and their likenesses, through photography, to allude to the beauty of subversive idioms. (Art Gym)

Bobbi is concurrently curating an exhibition at Private Places, the Portland venue that she founded and runs.
