The exhibition is titled, Biomorph, and features the work of Laura Ahola-Young from Idaho State University and Rachel Dorn from Yakima Valley Community College.
Dorn teaches ceramics at YVCC and specializes in blending her art with a combination of organic, brightly colored ceramic forms that are combined with recycled bicycle parts.
The end results are whimsical creations that are almost believable as fauna and flora.
Ahola-Young teaches painting at ISU, and her work is a reflection of cells and stars, taking the art from miniscule to the vastness of space.
Her work is abstract, circular shapes that combine color as vibrant as flowers as well as images reminiscent of small living creatures.
A reception for the artists is at 1 p.m. Jan. 14 in the gallery. The show continues through Feb. 6. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to noon Friday. The gallery is closed on weekends.
There is no admission fee.
