Cuesta gallery kicks off the fall semester with ‘Tributaries’ 

–Cuesta College’s Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery is bringing a roving exhibition of artists to the college for its first exhibit of the Fall 2018 semester. ‘Tributaries’ will feature the works of eight diverse artists from Marin, Calif. In addition to an opening reception on Aug. 23, the exhibit will include film screenings and studio visits with Cuesta College students. The artists have come together to share their works with the public only once prior.

“This second iteration of ‘Tributaries’ will begin a cross-cultural dialogue and sharing between our communities,” said Cuesta College Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery Coordinator Emma Saperstein. “The Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery provides the space for an expanded survey of work from the contributing artists and the events and discussions will provide fertile ground for cultural exchange.”

The artists will be in San Luis Obispo for a full week installing their exhibition, engaging with students and community members, and running various programs open to the public. The exhibit’s schedule of events includes:

• Short Films Program. Three short films by artists Jeff Warrin, Kate Sterlin, and Perry Shimon.
–Friday, Aug. 17, SLO Campus, Room 7120, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

• Artist Critique & Exchange. Students and local artists are invited to bring their portfolios – whether physical work or digital – and discuss practices with the collective in a supportive and educational environment.
–Monday, Aug. 20, SLO Campus, Printmaking Lab Room 7106, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

• Claiborne Shank’s Film “Four Rounds.” “Four Rounds” follows the story of one man’s first visit to the Crow Creek Reservation in Buffalo County, South Dakota – the poorest county in the United States. The film sheds light on the area where Santee Sioux were imprisoned as exiles from Minnesota in 1863, and where a concrete skatepark offers hope to a troubled community today.
–Tuesday, Aug. 21, SLO Campus, Printmaking Lab Room 7106, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
