ECA art writing workshop in July

ECA is doing an art writing workshop in July, sponsored by City of Eugene Cultural Services and taught by Vicki Amorose. It’s a free 4-part workshop, taking place across four Wednesdays 6-7:30pm at Eugene Public Library.

Registration is required and the workshop is capped at 25 participants: http://www.eugenecontemporaryart.com/write-about-visual-art-workshop/.

Vicki has written a more detailed description of the workshop and the ideas behind it on her blog: http://artwritebook.com/2019/05/29/write-about-visual-art-community-based-workshop/, but essentially we perceive a lack of critical writing about art in Eugene, and we would like for that to change.

Northrop Art Award recipient: Aiyana McClinton

Aiyana McClinton Artist Statement
Weaving is a direct communication of time, you start at one end and finish at the other in an incredibly linear way. In my own weavings I experiment with the idea of linear woven time by allowing the wool to travel not only horizontally, but also vertically. Following the notion of linear time the wool travels horizontally; right to left, left to right in a predictable line. In an effort to contradict this conventional linearity I also allow the wool to travel up and down the warp, almost as if it were being translated through dimensions or places in time.

These woven triplets tell a story of time and dependence. They feature a mixture of raw and refined wool, cotton yarn, and many other found materials like rope and warp ends, in a high contrast black, tan and white color palette. Wool droops and meanders through the weavings, enunciating the way the three interact with and affect each other. When on the loom, the pieces are completely flat; when allowed to drape, the pieces take on emotion and life. The horizontal lines become snakes slithering between the weavings, messages being sent back and forth. The draping of the weavings mocks the drooping cotton floats, giving a body to the woven emotions. The folds are translated across weavings, connecting them all as one sporadic movement. The two outer weavings humbly lean on the center piece, reliant and responsive. Emotional communication and cyclical time is found in the jumping and repeating wool pieces. The weavings are in tune with their connections.

looking for a few graphic artists

Hi there!
My name is Allison – class of 2013, and my company is looking for a few graphic artists to create some fun original artwork for an upcoming tech conference we are hosting. We are a Portland-based company, and would love to utilize local(ish) talent!
We would be so excited to get to work with your students! We decided the easiest way to do this would be to host a contest. Winner(s) will receive compensation for their work, and the chance to have their work featured at our major tech conference, CloudyCon. Here is a bit about the conference:
  • CloudyCon is a 3-day conference taking place on September 10-12 outside of San Francisco, CA
  • The event is sponsored by big companies such as Amazon
  • Artwork will be a main highlight of the conference signage, main stage, and swag – some really nice exposure!

This contest is open for 4 more days! We’d love it if some of your students could submit! https://bit.ly/2LxFN5S 

 

Let me know if you have any questions,

Intertwined Storytelling Performance: May 9th & 10th – Join us

https://youtu.be/1HB89efK94Q

Greetings!

You are invited to a magical storytelling event. “Intertwined: Choices” showcases twelve UO students and staff as storytellers. These individuals have been working hard to craft their stories and will share their personal experiences around the choices they have made, have not made, or decisions that were perhaps never choices at all—sweet, funny, painful, honest. Each story will be live scored by the talented Cullen Vance.

When:   May 9th and 10th (same event, offered two different nights)   Doors open at 7pm with refreshments and activities | Show begins at 7:30.

Where:  Global Scholars Hall, Great Room

We’re so excited to continue our work supporting UO’s amazing diversity of voices, and we hope you’ll choose to join us.

How do we make choices? In “The Journey,” Mary Oliver makes it sound simple, like a matter of instinct and time: “One day you finally knew what to do, and began.” And sometimes, it is like that. A choice arrives at our feet and we just know.

But often, choices breed complications. Whether we gain everything we ever wanted, lose everything we ever had, or wind up somewhere in between, the choices we make change us in ways we can even sometimes predict at the outset. The sides we take create new communities and risk altering old ones. The paths we choose take us to new wonders but we don’t know if they’ll take us back to places we loved. Maybe they shouldn’t. Every time we make a choice, we take a risk. And what if we can’t decide at all? What if the instinct never finds us and we never know for certain what’s right? What if we change our minds?

This year’s theme is all about how we choose and how we come to terms with the choices we make. What strength, comfort, or wisdom can be gained in the telling and the listening? How can we support each other in the work of considering, knowing, beginning, and remembering?

https://www.facebook.com/events/850670398603107/

2019 Upstream Art – Call to Artists

To All Interested Artists:

The City of Springfield is pleased to announce that the Call to Artists for the 2019 Upstream Art Project is underway!

Artists in the Eugene-Springfield area are invited to submit unique mural designs for UpStream Art. Murals will be painted on the ground at the Booth-Kelly trailhead of the Mill Race path near downtown Springfield. The murals will convey a visual message about everyone’s role in helping to protect our waterways. Artists have until 5 p.m., Friday, May 24 to submit an application and design. Details and application instructions can be found on the City of Springfield’s website.

Artists are encouraged to create designs that speak to this year’s theme: “It’s All Connected.” The murals will ‘flow’ from one to another toward a vegetated stormwater treatment area at the trailhead. Selected artists will be compensated for their completed artwork, and they will paint the murals on August 23 and 24, 2019.

Since 2016, the UpStream Art project has brought to life 16 murals on storm drains in downtown Springfield. The murals raise awareness of the importance of storm drains and their connection to our rivers. Pollutants such as oil, trash, and pet waste are harmful to water quality and aquatic life. Everyone can protect local waterways through simple, everyday actions.

HOPES [25] Conference: Earl Mark’s Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation

Hello!
We had a great first day of the HOPES [25] sustainability and design conference! We are so excited about the conversations that have been generated by yesterday’s activities. Let’s maintain that momentum!
For those of you planning to attend Earl Mark’s workshop at 1pm, please remember that part of the workshop will be outside so wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
More information on the Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation workshop:
In the fleeting moments setting up rapid shelter following a catastrophic event, speed may be critical and site data unavailable. With Associate Professor of Architecture, Dr. Earl Mark, and Marine Biologist, Dr. Deborah Brosnan, participants equipped with compass, camera* and sketchpad walk the southern bank of the Willamette River adjacent to UO. Recording what is directly observable, they will then move indoors to layout shelters with a minimal environmental footprint from prepared paper fold models. The experiment concludes with a discussion of lessons learned.
Randy Hester’s lecture, “Design for Ecological Democracy” will start at 10:30, (not as listed on the brochures at 10).
 
For more information about the HOPES[25] Conference, follow the link below. All events are free and open to the public.
We’ll see you there!
Best,
HOPES[25] Team

Here’s to your health!

Below are photos from our previous workshops, benefits of SKY meditation, and testimonials.

Testimonials

“Yesplus (now SKY) made me very conscious of my thought patterns, and conscious of a sense of self that exists independent of those thoughts and different moods. It made me calmer, more reflective, more observant, and more stable–I enjoyed the course a great deal, and have found that a daily practice is something I’m relying on. (And this reading and finals period has been largely stress free, mainly because meditating removes most of that stress!)”

— SARAH, SOPHOMORE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

“Alertness, creativity and efficient teamwork, I realize, are the cornerstones in contributing and getting the most from a demanding schedule at a business school. I observe that while students struggle to maintain their energy throughout the day, Yesplus practices helps me to be in “the zone”. They tremendously assist me to keep my smile throughout the day, deliver successfully and involve myself ingeniously… all without feeling a sense of stressful effort. What else can one ask for!”

— CHETAN, MANAGEMENT FELLOW AT SLOAN SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Art photography

My name is Christina, and I’m a student at the U of O. An art dealer in
California has expressed interest in reproducing professional “captures”
(photos) of my paintings to make giclee prints of. I would need the
capture to be at least 30 mb or more. If anyone is able to do this, I
will be happy to pay them for it.
