Camarillo, Calif., Feb. 20, 2014 – The Art Program at CSU Channel Islands (CI) is pleased to present “Dreams, Fables & Histories, Captured and Framed,” a student exhibition of time-based media art, at the CI Palm Gallery, Monday, March 3, through Friday, March 21.  A free, public reception with the artists will be held on Thursday, March 6, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Curated by CI digital media lecturer Elizabeth Leister, “Dreams, Fables & Histories, Captured and Framed,” represents video and animation projects where students explore the imaginative re-structuring of time, the modernization of a fable, and the visual study of a specific history.  Diverse approaches to subject matter, technique and style are reflected in the work, including green screen compositing, stop motion, and hand-drawn animation.  Each video is also screened and captured as printed image sequences, allowing key moments and frames to be viewed and appreciated as a single composition.

The CI Palm Gallery is located at 92 Palm Avenue, Camarillo, inside the Camarillo Smiles Dental building.  Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.  The gallery is closed Saturday and Sunday.  For further information call 805-437-2772 or email
