The Light Commons, University of Oregon, Portland
On view until April 8, 2016
The Light Court Commons Gallery and UO Printmaking is pleased to present a selection of recent prints from faculty and MFA alumni. The unique prints, variable editions and state proofs showcase the various ways artists use the iterative, systematic, and transitive methods of printmaking. The UO printmaking program encourages thinking through print to engage experiments in processes, variations on traditional methods, and use of technology to create distinctive print work.
Portland Community College
Themed Portfolio Exhibition hosted by SGCI Conference in Portland.
On View until April 2, 2016
The roving, transitory nature of the SGCI conference lends itself to consideration of modern society’s aspiration for tourism and the artist’s role as a tourist. The prints in this portfolio may interpret the consequences of how many places, people or objects are exoticized and commodified by or for an audience of tourists in slogans similar to Portland’s “Keep Portland Weird”. The portfolio highlights the artist’s particular experience while travelling or as an outsider within their own local culture. Portfolio participants will create an edition of oversized, fictional travel brochures which investigate the fluctuating relationship between arts, culture and tourism.
