Welcome to the Chaffey Community Museum of Art

Current Exhibitions

Main Gallery: Figuratively Speaking

January 1 – March 15, 2015

Artists have had a dialog with the human form since the beginning of time. In this exhibit we celebrate the figure, whether a realistic depiction, an abstraction or with the artist capturing the essence of the human spirit. Exhibiting artists include: Leslie A. Brown, William Catling, Chick Curtis, Helen Hayes, Joe Pastor, Eileen Senner and Gayle Stratford.
Through March 15, 2015.

South Gallery: rebirth of dialects
Curated by Cindy Rinne

January 22 – March 22, 2015

Cindy Rinne curates an exhibition of mixed-media fiber art using various materials including: found objects, fragments of cloth, yarn, and sticks to construct sculptural forms or art quilts. The artists in this exhibition, Sharon Algozer, Susan Feldman, Sumi Foley, Laura Larson and Cindy Rinne, create conceptual and narrative objects by building form with their hands using stitch as language. Through a visual vocabulary, both gritty and fluid, the artists reinvent myth, identity, absence, and place.
Through March 22, 2015.

Spotlight Gallery: My Life, My Art
Alan Swartz

December 26, 2014 – February 15, 2015

From the artist:
"My  life, my art are one in the same. If it was not for my art, there would be no life. The wonder and excitement of putting a brush to canvas, modeling clay between my fingers and arranging and attaching wondrous found objects is mysterious and a much enjoyable way of life.

When looking at my artwork, please look at it as one man's means of expression. It is what it is. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did when I made it."
Through February 15, 2015.

Young Artist Alcove:
Esmeralda Mijangos

January 15, 2015 –

From the artist:
There are many different forms of art: music, drama, ceramics, drawing, painting and much more. When it comes to art, no matter how much you know, there is always something new to learn.
Reality can be depressing in so many ways that people can sometimes miss the beauty in life and that’s where art comes in. Movies are made to bring out emotion, music is made to bring up spirits, ceramics and drawing/painting are made to show people what beautiful, or sometimes even tragic things, they may be missing.
