WHO: The artwork displayed in the exhibition Creative Catalyst 5, was created by Gavilan College artists-educators and artists-educators from our local high schools: Gilroy, Live Oak and San Benito high schools. Curated by Arturo Rosette.
WHAT: The exhibit includes works in a variety of media: ceramics, painting, mural, digital photography, mixed media. Pieces range from very small to multi-wall installation. The styles and approaches are as different as the artists themselves.
WHERE: Gavilan College Art Gallery, in the Gavilan College Library. Main Campus, 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd., Gilroy
WHEN: November 28th, 2005 through February 1st, 2006
Artists' Reception: December 8th, 4 p.m. - 5:30 PM
WHY: (curator's statement) "Artists that teach often are confronted with the predicament of having to create for their own
well-being (sanity) and wanting to share that inspiration and journey with their students. Ideally an artist that teaches is able to maintain a balance between their creating and teaching life. Unfortunately that is not always possible especially considering recent education reforms that
impose added responsibilities on teachers: larger classes, state mandated standards, dwindling resources...
With that in mind we invite you to experience this exhibition in that context. The artwork presented was created by artists that not only continue traveling a creative path of discovery, turmoil and insight, but somehow muster up the energy to, day in and day out, struggle with (new) ways to
share those experiences with their students and community." - r2row, Gallery Director
