At the Saddleback College Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition, visitors are able to absorb a wide variety of mixed media art pieces created entirely by Saddleback instructors. Admission to the exhibit, which features photography, sculptures, paintings, printmaking, ceramics and drawings, is free.

The displayed “Volatile Force” piece by Vito-Leonardo Scarola, was very provocative and had the audience talking. . Sarah Schasck, 20, city and regional planning, described this oil painting as “the naked woman [whose] curvature of the body and striking red hair made a lasting impression” on her. For Schasck, it was one of her favorite pieces.

“Volatile Force” displays a vexed female figure who is facing the wall and is naked but shoed. During the artist’s reception amysterious lady in the crowd, wore the exact pair of vampy leather boots that match the bare bodied female in the perplexing painting. .

Some items on display at the gallery are for sale, with prices ranging from $230 to $20,000. A very sweet and peculiar sculpture titled Parachuting Duckie Experiment by Jonathan T. Ginnaty, features a clay duck strapped to faux, rubber parachuting gear, with a timer and two air balloons. It is available for only $450.

The wide variety of media used is one of the standout characteristics of the exhibit, serving to unify the pieces.

Of all the displayed art, Alise Sinica, 21, fashion merchandising, found oil on leather painting, titled “We Are Me” by Pamela Diaz Martinez to be “incredible and something worth checking out.”

Sinica said that her enthusiasm for the painted red-headed woman (featured in the piece with a body of roses) is due to her fashion background. “I study a lot about textiles and because it is made from an animal,” she said “[It was something] I have never seen.”

The art gallery opening was held on Thursday, Feb.19 and the exhibit will run until Thursday, Mar. 12, 2009.

“It is a very strong exhibit,” said Bob Rickerson, 58, gallery director and an instructor. “Teachers show a strong passion for their work.”

Rickerson was worried about the ongoing construction making it hard for the visitors to locate the gallery, but regardless, the exhibit was filled with people. The success of the reception was evident sincenumerous guests enjoyed the art while snacking on the complimentary food and drinks.

The gallery is open Monday – Wednesday from noon to 4p.m. and Thursday evenings from 4p.m. to 8p.m. For more information on the event, go to http://gallery.saddleback.edu. t the Saddleback College Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition, visitors are able to absorb a wide variety of mixed media art pieces created entirely by Saddleback instructors.
