Mission
The Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art is a teaching museum and interdisciplinary art space that fosters direct engagement with works of art through exhibitions, education and community programming. Vision
The Wignall museum introduces Chaffey College students, faculty, staff and community members to innovative contemporary art objects and ideas. By fostering critical thinking, visual literacy, discourse, and empathy, the museum seeks to enhance the intellectual and cultural life of our community. Values
The Wignall museum believes in the power of art to generate new ideas, and that art fuels creativity and critical thinking, essential for collaboration and innovation. We acknowledge our responsibility to present works of art and programming that challenge our perceptions about the world, and to engage in work that supports and values cultural equity and inclusion, accessibility, and fair distribution of resources. Teaching Philosophy
The Wignall museum is a non-collecting institution that features temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and other dynamic programming and public engagements throughout the academic year. The museum inspires hope and success in our students by fostering critical thinking in a space that encourages investigation and innovation. Our exhibitions and programming are developed with our students in mind in order to enhance their academic experience by complementing the college’s curricula and broadening their understanding of contemporary art and the ideas they explore. The Museum advances the mission of Chaffey College by contributing to the intellectual and cultural life of the college and providing a dynamic, supportive and engaging environment where our diverse student populations learn and benefit.

GALLERY WALK-THROUGH Tierra del Sol Gallery

Join Tierra del Sol Gallery and with artist Jackie Marsh; Rebecca Hamm, Director of Arts; Paige Wery, Gallery Director; and others for a virtual walk-through of Jackie Marsh's solo show at the Tierra del Sol Gallery. The exhibition includes her drawings, paintings and ceramic sculptures from the last 10 years.

Jackie Marsh has worked as a studio artist at the progressive art studios of Tierra del Sol since 2009. Marsh produces whimsical depictions of animals and flowers in painting, drawing and ceramics. In both her two- and three-dimensional work, gestural mark-making is combined with a vibrant and loosely applied color palette to define her delightfully exuberant style.

In addition to being a studio artist, Marsh also teaches art classes at Upland Art Studios, the Joslyn Senior Center and other venues. Her work has been exhibited at such venues as the Chan Gallery, Pomona College, Claremont, California; California Baptist University, Riverside, California; Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, California; and Zask Gallery, Palos Verdes, California. When she’s not developing her art career, you can find Marsh at work providing compassionate care to the animals of local animal shelters.

ARTIST TALK Ann Le
April 30, 2-3pm (PDT)
REGISTER for this ONLINE event (hosted via Zoom) www.tinyurl.com/HomeEdition-Le

Ann Le has always dealt with identity, culture, family history, and the duality of becoming Vietnamese-American in her work. Inspired by the cultural contexts in her life, Le correlates the artificial with remembrances of generational trauma. Sentiment is vital in her works as she questions her personal experiences to construct imposing art.  She excavates her lineage by revisiting her family’s experiences by using personal and found images to reconstruct slippages in time and history. As layers of images are stacked upon one another, Le travels through time commenting on the idea of home, displacement, separation, and how we embrace and conquer loss. Tragic and Poetic composites are pieced together to unravel narratives which places her Vietnamese-American perspective into a contemporary landscape. Ann Le was born in San Diego, CA and currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
May 1-16, 2021 until 11:59pm (PDT)

(Dis)Comfort: A Virtual Project
June 1 - August 31, 2021
When we think of comfort and (dis)comfort, we often think of polar-opposite feelings of ease and unease; however, in 2020/2021 the global pandemic, cultural and racial upheaval, and the myriad of changes to our lives have left us feeling a constellation of emotions. This project is a call to consider your own experiences with comfort and (dis)comfort in this time of instability, disruption, and isolation. Open to Chaffey College students, artists, and community members who live, go to college, and/or work in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.

Claudia Alvarez is a Mexican-American artist living in New York City. She attended the University of California, Davis (BA 1999) and California College of Arts, San Francisco (MFA 2003). Alvarez is currently Visiting Assistant Professor at Pratt Institute and Lecturer at New York University.

Her work addresses the way social, political, and psychological structures impact our behavior and personal interactions. By imbuing sculptures of children with adult characteristics and mannerisms, Alvarez tackles issues relating to violence, empowerment, endurance and what they reveal about human nature.
