LA GRANDE, Ore. December 16, 2016 – The Nightingale Gallery rings in a new year and new term with an exhibition of works by Eastern Oregon University’s accomplished and internationally recognized visual arts faculty.
Gain an in-depth look at the recent studio practices of exhibiting professors Jaime Gustavson, Nathan Prouty, Michael Sell, Jessie Street and Kerri Rosenstein.
“These dedicated artists and educators have worked together to create a dynamic exhibition that serves as an example of the excellence and cooperation that defines the university’s art program,” said Cory Peeke, Nightingale Gallery director and professor of art at EOU.
An opening reception is planned from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13 in Nightingale in Loso Hall on campus. In conjunction with the exhibit, faculty will present a gallery talk at a date to be announced later.
The show includes a new painting by Gustavson, adjunct instructor of design, and a series of recent ceramic sculptures by Prouty, EOU’s new assistant professor of ceramics and sculpture. Sell, associate professor of photography, is presenting selections from his latest series of portraits, while Street, adjunct instructor of art education, is showing some of her ink transfer prints. Rosenstein, visiting assistant professor, is exhibiting a series of recent drawings.
Peeke is not participating in EOU’s show this year, but is preparing for a solo exhibition of his collage work to open at the Betty Feves Memorial Gallery at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton. His exhibit, “this page intentionally left blank,” runs January 12 through February 9.
