The Alexander Gallery at the college will re-open with the works of Mel Ulven and run through Feb. 25.

The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will re-open to the public for its winter exhibition, which runs through Feb. 25.

"About Time" is a collection of works by artist Mel Ulven comprised of multimedia collages, drawings and paintings primarily using reclaimed materials. The exhibit is a retrospective sampling 30 years in the making. "About Time" is the contemplation of time viewed through the lens of the indefinite, continued progress of existence and events — past, present and future.

Ulven was born in Morehead, Minnesota, and grew up in the Willamette Valley. He attended the Museum Art School in Portland and was influenced by his instructors Louis Bunce, Eunice Parsons, Mike Russo, George Johanson, Manuel Esquierdo, Doug Lynch and Robert Reynolds.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. Masks and social distancing are required.
