This is an in-person event
"Paragon Arts Gallery at PCC Cascade presents Bad Air by M. V. Moran. The exhibition opens Friday, December 2, and please join us for a reception on Thursday, December 8, 2022, from 5 - 7 p.m. with an artist talk at 6 p.m. Public programming will continue with a drawing workshop in January, date and time to be announced. All events are free and open to the public.

Presented in the Paragon's West Gallery, the "Bad Air" series consists of nine large charcoal drawings, each portraying a female figure. The contrast of marks and black charcoal on a field of white paper add a dramatic distinction between the body and the space that surrounds each woman. The indeterminacy of place suggests confinement and isolation. Originally for the Coos Art Museum, these drawings were made during the pandemic, the Oregon wildfires, and global, national, and local political turmoil." (Promo Copy)
