NSH Gallery Exhibits Willamette University Art Faculty Work
A reception and artist talk is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 4, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the NSH Gallery second floor atrium.
Fourie is showing mixed media work that explores the tension between flatness and dimensionality using found and fabricated objects. His work is concerned with issues of memory, identity, tradition and cultural hybridity in South African culture.
Opie is exhibiting a series of tintype photographs, entitled Encounters. In these images, aspects of early portrait photography are examined in the present.
Thompson’s series of landscape paintings are a response to “the landscape of my present and how the people of ancient Scotland and Britain were intertwined with their natural surroundings.” He is interested in the layering of time in his work.
Hays has three large watercolors in the show that reflect the overwhelming feeling created by mundane domestic tasks that are necessary for the everyday maintenance of family life. Her paintings contrast entropy and order through piles of beautifully colored and folded fabrics.
Beadle’s digital archival prints, entitled Selections from the LOC: Accidents, 2008-2014, reference work by Lewis Hine.
The artists will be exhibiting on both floors of the NSH Galleries. Gallery admission is free and open to the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
