MJC Art Gallery

The MJC Art Gallery is an educational resource of the MJC Art Department, serving the Modesto and surrounding communities by showcasing a diverse selection of art exhibitions. The Art Gallery is committed to celebrating art and culture by featuring students’ artistic accomplishments, faculty’s ongoing creative research, as well as solo and group exhibitions by artists working in the state of California and beyond. 

The goal of the MJC Art Gallery is to increase awareness and to educate our community on issues involving the visual art by providing exposure to both traditional and contemporary art. A vital component of the academic and cultural life of the Central Valley, the MJC Art Gallery aspires to engage broad and diverse audiences, to provide a place for contemplation, to create a dialogue about art in its many forms, and to promote a sense of community.

The MJC Art Gallery is operated entirely through the voluntary efforts of the MJC Visual Arts Club under the direction of its curator: Dr. Richard Serros.

About the Artist: James is a long time math professor at MJC and this show celebrates his 50th year here  As James explains: “In this day of digital photography using vintage Leica film cameras and lenses provides an "old school" look to the iconic images that define Modesto. It is often about the out of the way scenes that we pass by daily without seeing. My effort to capture images of the past and present gave me a new perspective of Modesto, one that I would like to share with others.”
