Art exhibit 'About Time' opens at CCC (Photo) - 01/10/22

UPDATE: The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will be closed through Jan. 28 due to temporary increased COVID restrictions at the college. The artist talk has tentatively been rescheduled to Feb. 9 at 1 p.m.

OREGON CITY – The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will re-open to the public for its winter exhibition, which runs Jan. 3-Feb. 25. 

“About Time” is a collection of works by artist Mel Ulven comprised of multimedia collage, drawings and paintings with a primary use of reclaimed materials. The exhibit is a retrospective sampling 30 years in the making. “About Time” is the contemplation of time viewed through the lens of the indefinite, continued progress of existence and events - past, present and future. 

Ulven was born in Morehead, Minnesota, and grew up in the Willamette Valley. He attended the Museum Art School in Portland and was influenced by his instructors Louis Bunce, Eunice Parsons, Mike Russo, George Johanson, Manuel Esquierdo, Doug Lynch and Robert Reynolds.

An informal artist talk will be held Jan. 12, noon-1 p.m. at the Alexander Gallery. The Alexander Gallery is located in Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of holidays. 

This exhibition is free and open to the public. Masks and social distancing are required. For more information on Clackamas Community College’s art exhibits and performances, visit

Free health clinic moving to Clackamas Community College (Photo) - 01/06/22

OREGON CITY – This spring, Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM) is moving its free health clinic to the Clackamas Community College Oregon City campus. 

Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine’s facility is the only free medical clinic in Clackamas County. Since 2012, the clinic has provided safety-net health care to more than 3,300 people. 

“Many of our patients are essential workers who struggle to make ends meet, and if there was no CVIM they would have to make a choice between health care and putting food on the table,” Martha Spiers, CVIM executive director, said.

CVIM has been operating out of a converted warehouse since it opened. Now, in partnership with Clackamas Community College, the clinic is moving its operations to a new space on campus – a community hub, with easy bus access. The new clinic will expand services for patients in need of health care, while offering training opportunities for Clackamas Community College allied health students. 

“By having CVIM on our college campus, not only will our students have easy access to health care, but students in our health care programs will have access to real-world experience and training at the clinic,” CCC President Tim Cook said.

The new clinic will be in Clairmont Hall, which will be remodeled starting in February. The clinic will have seven exam rooms, office space, work areas and consultation space. 

Funding for this $3-million project comes from multiple sources, including a $650,000 Clackamas County community development block grant and $800,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funding allocated by Rep. Courtney Neron, Rep. Mark Meek and Rep. Andrea Salinas. The Heatherington Foundation for Innovation and Education in Health Care is providing $700,000 in matching funds, and the Collins Foundation is providing $150,000 to fund a full-time nurse practitioner. CVIM is still fundraising for the full amount needed to complete the project and expand service to the community.
