Mix at San Diego City College until Dec 12, 2014

San Diego City College Gallery's  newest exhibition is Mix and it is worth the climb off of C Street near 14h to room 314 of the Arts & Humanities building to see not only the art but the incredible new 2,400-square-foot exhibition gallery. The gallery is run by the full time visual arts staff members and I was lucky to be shown around by Terri Hughes-Oelrich who is energetic and passionate about the space and the art scene in San Diego. City college Gallery only started in Aug but has had three shows already and this exhibition of Allison, Renshaw, Vicki Walsh, Stephen P. Curry and John Dillemouth fills the space with quality art work. This show was curated by Wayne Hulgin and it is elegant and engaging. The previous show of ceramics was curated by YC Kim.  Watch for future pop up shows and the use of the outside sculpture garden (if you can call a concrete fenced forecourt a garden!) as well as the faculty and student shows one expects from a college gallery. I was impressed with the vision Hughes-Oeirch has for the future as she and her colleagues aim for relevance in an ever changing art world.  For more info:  Email citygallery@sdccd.edu
