Doug Kaigler’s “Today’s Special, David’s Dilemma Blackbird Pie,” bronze, 2004.
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The Nightingale Gallery at EOU presents a selection of works from the university’s permanent collection for its next exhibition.
The show serves as an introduction to a diverse collection that is rarely exhibited together and opens at 12 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21 in the gallery in Loso Hall. There will be no reception.
“The EOU collection represents decades of eclectic acquisition and will present gallery goers an array of works in a variety of media by a broad selection of highly skilled artists,” said Cory Peeke, director of Nightingale Gallery.
A rich assortment of prints will be on display by some of the biggest names in art history including works by Pablo Picasso, Thomas Hart Benton, Paul Cezanne, Robert Indiana and Alexander Calder, among others.
The collection also features a strong selection of works by artists with well-known ties to the region. Pieces by George Nightingale, Betty Feves, Kat Galloway, Ben Francy, Don Gray, Marvin Saltzman and Doug Kaigler will be on view. Kaigler’s bronze “Today’s Special, David’s Dilemma Blackbird Pie” is the university’s most recent acquisition.
In addition to these familiar names there will also be work by some lesser known but equally talented artists. Many of these pieces were created by up-and-coming former EOU students, including paintings and drawings by Alec Schramek, Devin Farrand, James Long and Kevin Layton, as well as sculpture by Lauren Hull and Emily Patterson.
Much of the collection is made up of works on paper and many of these pieces have been part of a two-year concentrated effort by the gallery to reframe and conserve them. This effort was undertaken in order to prepare them for exhibit and preserve them for future generations.
The conservation and acquisition of these works is made possible by the small commission the Nightingale Gallery realizes from the sale of exhibited pieces.
See the show through Friday, Dec. 5 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information www.eou.edu/art or like Nightingale Gallery on Facebook.
