Rebecca Campbell: Painting Feminine Power

An ambitious exhibition that focuses on a significant motif in Rebecca Campbell’s paintings – the agency she gives young and adult women – will be on display at Orange Coast College’s Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion from Feb. 15 until March 24.

Titled “Rebecca Campbell: Painting Feminine Power,” and curated by The Doyle’s director Tyler Stallings, the exhibition includes paintings created over the past two decades. Often encompassing a viewer’s field of vision, they feature figures in dreamlike, allegorical settings in which gender politics, dogmas, and nuanced interpersonal, familial relationships are explored. Fusing abstraction and figuration, Campbell imbues her figures and settings with a vibrating luminosity through decisively applied, broad strokes of washes and impasto.

Holly Topping: The Calamity Hustle

Painter Holly Topping presents new work in a solo exhibition on display at Orange Coast College’s Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion from Feb. 15 until Mar. 24, 2022. The exhibition, titled “Holly Topping: The Calamity Hustle,” tells a tragicomic coming-of-age story of a onetime SoCal-80’s-Party-Girl who finds herself stranded in a Westworld-like absurdist fantasyland of her own imagining.

“The Calamity Hustle” is curated by The Doyle’s director Tyler Stallings, and presents new oil paintings and watercolors produced from travels throughout the American southwest. Topping created them while on sabbatical from OCC, where she is a full-time professor in the art department. Of her work, Topping says: “I play with animal and female stereotypes … because I am a feminist who recognizes my shared genetics with beasts of burden. I create absurdist visual mash-ups because, at heart, I am a consummate comedic storyteller.”

Admission is free for all exhibitions. Modified gallery hours, spring 2022: Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. For spring 2022, the gallery is closed on Mondays, Fridays and school holidays. Please check the gallery website for any change in schedule due to evolving COVID-19 restrictions. The Doyle is located next to OCC’s Parking Lot D, off Merrimac Way, building 180, between Starbucks and the Art Center classrooms. For additional information, call (714) 432-5738, or visit The Doyle website.
