Pence Hall

An exhibition of sculptures by Bend artist Greg Amanti, titled “Sentinels,” is showing at Central Oregon Community College’s (COCC) Pence Pinckney Gallery from Oct. 14 to Nov. 11, with an opening reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21. The Pence gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. Masks are required and distancing protocols will be followed.

“These shapes resemble unstable beacons or buoys,” said Amanti in an artist’s statement. “They might represent a loss of direction and our difficulty to navigate through uncertain times.”

Amanti attended the Art Institute of Seattle with a focus on commercial photography. A master mold maker, stone carver and critically acclaimed artist and artisan, he has worked at the two largest foundries on both coasts. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art, the Hinterland Art Space and the RedLine Contemporary Art Center.
