Since 2018, Chaffey Community Museum of Art (CCMA) has been managing the art program at Ontario International Airport (ONT). The program brings original works of art created by artists living and working in the regional area served by the airport. Recently, local artists Mary Duman, Joan McCandless and Chet Noll submitted a collaborative application to share a display on behalf of the Wrightwood Arts Center and were accepted.
The chosen artwork includes selections from Mary Duman’s ceramic series, “Symbiosis,” exploring the complexity of natural relationships, which featured in an exhibit at the WAC last fall; Chet Noll’s butterfly wood sculptures from his series, “The Creative Process,” and pastel paints by WAC President Joan McCandless.
Because of Covid-19, windows are currently being rotated less often, but the collaborative window has been on display for several months and can be viewed through October.
For more information on the Art at Airport program and an application form, visit the Chaffey Museum website. This is an ongoing call for participation. The Wrightwood Arts Center urges local artists from the Tri-Community, High-Desert and beyond to submit an application for consideration!
