OREGON CITY -- With two science labs, a computer lab, study space and a crime lab, the completion of Clackamas Community College's Harmony West building signals a great opportunity for people in Milwaukie and beyond to access a state-of-the-art education.

The building, adjacent to CCC's Harmony East on the Harmony Community Campus, opened for winter term on Jan. 8. Students who are in the college's allied health programs can now take all their courses on the Harmony Community Campus rather than commuting to and from the Oregon City campus.

The new facility allows CCC to growth its Health Science, workforce development and general education offerings. The college's Criminal Justice program is now also housed in Harmony West.

The $21.7-million project was funded through a 2014 voter-approved bond, as well as an $8-million match from the state of Oregon.

"In 2012, the college went out to the community and area businesses and asked what they needed from CCC. We dreamed how to fill that need, and we determined it had to be within the parameters of being flexible, community oriented and fiscally sound for now and in the future. I believe this building gets it right," CCC President Joanne Truesdell said.

Harmony West replaces the 61-year-old former OIT/Dale Ickes Junior High building. It is three floors and totals about 43,000 square feet, featuring classrooms, labs, community event space and a bookstore.

The community is invited to a grand opening on Thursday, Jan. 25, at 4 p.m. for a short ceremony, refreshments and self-guided tours of the building. Harmony West is located at 7738 SE Harmony Road, Milwaukie.

Alexander Gallery exhibit inspired by rebellious women (Photo) - 12/21/17

OREGON CITY -- Clackamas Community College will host "Lessons From the Dark," an exhibition by California-based artist Leslie Nemour, in the Alexander Gallery, Jan. 8-Feb. 2.

The painter's exhibition is inspired by her childhood fascination with women on the movie screen. She worked to capture rebellious personas of women in roles such as tomboys, sex kittens, aristocrats and servants, all using projector screens as her canvases. Her compositions explore the validity of both heroic and unscrupulous characters.

Nemour is an associate professor of art at MiraCosta College. Her work has been show nationally and is supported by the UCROSS Foundation and Social and Public Art Resource Center.

An artist's reception will be held Jan. 17, noon-1:30 p.m., in the Alexander Gallery, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City. The gallery is free and open to the public Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of campus closures.
