Paper/Process: Celebrating the Creative Impulse
October 14–November 12, 2010
A celebration of the visual artist and the creative process. Creativity and artistic process most often begin with the use of the most humble of materials: paper. Unlike many of the more formal (and more costly) media, paper affords the visual artist a certain freedom to experiment, to take more intellectual risks.
Mediator – Medicant
September 9–October 8, 2010
Printmaker and storyteller Vicky Tomayko's art focuses on fantasy in the natural world and the complexity of rural life. Her work explores the narrative potential in one-of-a-kind images produced as drawings, monotypes, drypoints, paintings, and 3-D fabric sculptures.
Student Art Exhibit
April 20–May 6, 2010
An exhibition of student work from the current semester encompassing painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, mosaics, illustration, digital imaging and life drawings.
March 2–April 9, 2010
This exhibit features the work of three accomplished regional artists, Soojin Kim, Bao LeDe and C.J. Phu. Born in divergent countries within Asia—South Korea, China, and Vietnam, their compelling life stories are a testimony to the immeasurable importance of the immigrant experience to the arts.
Working in a variety of materials, techniques and subject matter, their paintings address the universal passions of the human community—family, a sense of place, and the beauty of nature.
