Name: Carnival Seekers Exhibition at Claremont Museum of Art
Date: November 18, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM PST
Event Description:
This event is sponsored by Claremont Museum of Art.

Inspired by her many travels to Mexico, Guatemala and throughout South America, Dee Marcellus Cole has transformed the Claremont Depot into a Carnival of bright colors, iconic images, and spiritual messages. "Dee Marcellus Cole and Carnival Seekers" presents the work of eight folk artists driven, not by the art world, but by the instinctive need to create. 

The exhibition, generously sponsored by Gould Asset Management LLC will be on view August 4 – November 26, 2017 at Claremont Museum of Art, 200 W. 1st St, Claremont

Dee Marcellus Cole, a self-proclaimed faux-folk artist living in Upland, creates vibrant sculptures constructed of wood and layered paper. These colorful creatures, whimsical in movement and spiritual in nature, are reminiscent of Latin American culture. 

She has chosen to collaborate with some of Claremont and Pomona’s most distinctive artists for this exhibition including Johnnie Dominguez, Cathy Garcia, Sandy Garcia, Karen and John Neiuber, Christian Ornelas and Dan Romero to highlight celebration, in all shapes and forms. 

Dee Marcellus Cole earned an MA in art from the Claremont Graduate School in 1984 and taught at La Verne University for twelve years. Known as the Goddess of the Pomona Art Colony she has inspired generations of artists, hosted studio tours, presented workshops and been exhibited in numerous solo shows.
The museum is located in the historic Claremont Depot at 200 W. First Street in Claremont just steps away from the Metrolink Station.
