Monday, January 28 through Saturday, March 1, 2008.
Artists’ Talk and Reception: Tuesday, January 29, 2008 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum are pleased to present Inlandia. Like the 2007-2008 College Book of the same name, Inlandia assembles a group of artists who explores disparate ideas that make the Inland Empire a place with a cultural landscape all its own. The artists in Inlandia are based in TX, MN, OR, NY and CA, but regardless of their proximity to the Inland area, their works are informed directly by this regions political or social landscape or investigate ideas relevant to the IE community. In Inlandia explores the Inland Empire’s status as the fastest growing region in Southern California, the resulting suburban sprawl and ecological impact on the area, the beauty and inspiration of the landscape in the sprawling IE territory, and the characters that make this region unique and diverse. Artists utilize various media to comment on, record and realize the Inland Empire.

Inlandia features work by Edith Abeyta (CA), Adam Belt (CA), Sasha Bezzubov (NY), Margarita Cabrera (TX), Misty Cervantes(CA), Samantha Fields (CA), The Institute for Figuring (CA), Roman Jaster (CA), Sant Khalsa (CA), Kimberly Kolba (OR), Amy Maloof (CA), Michelle Mayer (CA), Thomas McGovern (CA), Jessica Newman-Skrentny (CA), David Rathman (MN), Alex Slade(CA), Jessica Swanson (CA), and Roger Tilton (CA).
