Exhibit: Fungi Paintings

Tuesday, 10/15/2019 from 9 a.m. to 12/13/2019 at 5 p.m.

Health Careers Center

The mushroom-themed paintings of Kentucky artist Devan Horton will be on display in Central Oregon Community College’s Health Careers Center lobby and first-floor gallery from October 15 to December 13; the building is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The exhibit, titled “Pulchritudinous,” is a series of oil paintings that explore the texture and patterns of mushrooms to highlight their form and confront perceptions of beauty. “I feel that sometimes the mundane, small and overlooked are some of the most beautiful (things) when viewed through the right lens,” said the artist in a statement. Horton points out that even the name of the exhibit, “Pulchritudinous,” sounds like an ugly word, but is in fact an adjective that refers to something attractive.
