The Art Gallery at UCC

Whipple Art GalleryThe UCC Art Gallery is located in the Whipple Fine Arts Center. The 1,100 square foot space features six exhibits during the academic year. There is also the mezzanine gallery on the second floor of Whipple that features student art work on a continuous basis. Both galleries feature exhibits in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. The major purpose and function of the Art Gallery is to exhibit quality works of art for the education and cultural benefit of the students of UCC and the citizens of Douglas County.

Latest Exhibit - Ambivalently Yours

Her Success is not Your FailureThe Art Gallery at Umpqua Community College is thrilled to present Ambivalently Yours: as seen on Tumblr by Ambivalently Yours. This multi-media exhibit will be on display from Monday, April 3, through Thursday, May 4, 2017.

Artist Ambivalently Yours explores DIY girl culture, feminism, mainstream media culture, and ambivalence through a variety of media. She juxtaposes her love of all things “sweetness and pink” with questionable advice, motivational statements, and witty intelligence. Original drawings and prints fill the gallery space along with animations, zines, and interactive digital kiosks. Most of nearly 100 drawings in the gallery’s space have never been publicly exhibited, but their digital equivalents have received enthusiastic attention on social media.
