Do good for the environment by helping a fellow student design an exhibit for the Oregon Coast Aquarium!

Greetings School of Art and Design students!
My name is Britta Baechler and I am a 3rd year PhD student at Portland State University studying microplastics in Oregon shellfish. I am putting together a temporary (1-year) exhibit about ocean plastics and microplastics for the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon and need some creative assistance! I am really excited about the opportunity to teach the broader community people about the pollution occurring in our oceans through both interactive and interpretive displays at the aquarium, but creating interactive visual displays is where I could really use some help!
I could especially use some volunteer assistance with:
1) Assembly of some structures (tables, stands, etc….) that would be used for the exhibit’s signage/ interactive displays/ props,
2) Putting together some ocean plastics-related art that help visualize the plastic pollution problem,
3) Standing banner graphic design and layouts (including images, basic data, etc)
4) Ideas for fun and interactive displays about big or small plastics.
This would be a great chance to have your name included on a museum exhibit, and to help get the word out about this important environmental issue!
If you are interested, please contact me by email at

Upstream art project in Eugene, call to artists

The City of Eugene is launching an UpStream Art Project to help communicate the importance of storm drains, their function, and their connection to our rivers. Local artists are invited to paint mini-murals next to storm drains in downtown Eugene with visual messages about protecting out waterways, stream habitat and aquatic wildlife.
The theme for 2018 is “Clean Rivers Start Here.” There are up to four storm drains identified for the 2018 project. Artist selection will be based on how well the theme is conveyed, how well the artist depicts that storm drains lead to rivers and how well the art encourages the community to help protect local waterways. Each artist selected (up to four total) will receive $1,000 total compensation after the artwork is installed.
Submission of artwork is due by 5 p.m. on August 20, 2018. Artwork must be completed on September 21-22. Anyone interested in participating can find application information and an FAQ at
The project is part of the City’s education and outreach efforts to help residents understand that stormwater flows untreated from our streets to our local waterways and that everyone has a role in helping to protect rivers.

Funding Awarded to Community Arts Projects in Eugene

Community Arts Grant 2018-2019 Awards_Media Release-2agox5p

Lane Arts Council & City of Eugene 
Award Funding to Community Arts Projects
Lane Arts Council announces $56,125 in grants to arts organizations and arts projects in the Eugene area. The Community Arts Grant Program is funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by Lane Arts Council.
The Community Arts Grants help ensure diverse and accessible arts opportunities and experiences for Eugene artists, audiences and participants.
This year nine community arts organizations, with annual budgets above $100,000, will receive Program Grants and 17 community arts projects will receive Project Grants. Project grants will fund: theatre productions, poetry slams, arts and writing competitions, summer rock camps, festivals, art exhibitions, mural programs, fashion shows and more.
St. Vincent de Paul was awarded a Community Arts Grant for their Metamorphose Earth Day Event in which they will invite the community to participate in upcycled/recycled art and design challenges and learn about responsible waste-diversion.
“Community Arts Grants play a critically important role in Eugene by helping to meld mission with art—and that art helps to make that mission visible, vibrant and accessible,” says Terry McDonald, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. The agency also received a Community Arts Grant that will enable a local artist to work with residents of the new SVDP Youth House for homeless teen girls to create a mural telling their collective story.
Another grant recipient, Wordcrafters in Eugene, will present a Fiction Fantastic contest for young writers to showcase their creativity and publish their written works.
Wordcrafters in Eugene Executive Director, Daryll Lynne Evans, explained why the grant is meaningful to their organization: “Having access to quality creative writing instruction is vital for our youth to discover their voices and hone their story-telling skills. This grant makes it possible to give youth in our community a space to be published and know that their voices matter.”
“Arts and culture is the heartbeat of our city and the reason why so many of us love living in Eugene,” states Liora Sponko, Lane Arts Council Executive Director. “These grant awarded projects and programs provide our community with access to the incredible artistic contributions of our local artists and arts organizations.”

VALA RAE Opening reception, Friday, June 22, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

I am so happy to announce the exhibition and website launch for VALA RAE! 
VALA RAE is a collaborative ceramic housewares company between Jessie Rose Vala and Emily Rae Counts. If you have a second please check out our website (link below) and we would so love to see you at our opening Friday, June 22 at Dust to Dust in Portland OR.

June 22 – August 5, 2018

Opening reception, Friday, June 22, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Dust to Dust presents VALA RAE, an exhibition highlighting one-of-a-kind functional ceramic pieces created by Jessie Rose Vala and Emily Rae Counts. VALA RAE is a unique housewares production company that blurs the lines between; art and design, routine and ritual, and functional and fantastical objects. Many of the pieces focus on light and fire, a reflection on the hearth, once the center of the home.
The VALA RAE inaugural exhibition features an oversized lovers’ bong, pendant lights, lamps, chimera-inspired table pipes, cast porcelain pipes, candle holders, and vases. Animal forms and imagery are reflected in these pieces as well as an abundance of patterns, textures, and shapes. This collection of hand sculpted and meticulously glazed objects creates a space where housewares exist in the realms of both the everyday and the wondrous.
VALA RAE is guided by art practices, allowing for a fluid generation of objects and ideas. Improvisational actions are relied upon in the creative process as a design for a vase or pipe may inform the shape of a unique table lamp, one idea leading unexpectedly to the next. The intention of VALA RAE is to constantly shift and evolve as a company, to exhibit pieces that are made by Vala and Counts both individually and in tandem, and to build a platform to create work that addresses the convergence of design, art, and craft.

Mururoa Mururoa: Big Lies

June 30 – July 21

Opening Reception June 30, 2018 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Killjoy Collective 222 SE 10th Ave Unit 102B Portland, OR 97214

“Indeed, I saw in the district young women and young girls tranquil of eye, pure Tahitians….

All indeed, wish to be taken literally, brutally taken, without a single word.”

— Excerpt from Noa Noa, Tahiti journal of P. Gauguin

In 1769, the population of Tahiti was approximately 35,000.

By the time Paul Gauguin arrived in Papeete in 1891, European disease had killed off two-thirds of the population.

In the same year, colonialism had successfully destroyed the Maori people. Calvinist, Mormon, and Catholic religions replaced the indigenous beliefs and European thought and products replaced the handicrafts, barkcloth, the art of tattoo, music, and dance.

Mururoa Mururoa: Big Lies, is the start to a new dialog on the art and life of Paul Gauguin. A challenge to art institutions, art historians, and curators to recognize the true perspective of the indigenous.

#Repost @mamakanani


I have been thinking about this for years… In 2012 I saw an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, Gauguin and Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise. I could not believe the ignorance of this show; the write up was absolutely ridiculous…they said “through a balanced and contextual analysis of Polynesian art alongside Gauguin’s works, this exhibit brings Polynesian arts and culture into the center of Gauguin studies”.

Gauguin is the face of colonialism: the face of a patriarchal society. There was no balance in the curation of this show. There was no Polynesian voice in this show. Polynesian art and culture was stolen, fetishised, and taken advantage of by Gauguin.

Terri Warpinski’s “From Here to There” to be exhibited in the Governor’s Office June 4 — July 31


News Release from Oregon Arts Commission
Posted on FlashAlert: May 24th, 2018 10:40 AM

Salem, Oregon – Eugene artist Terri Warpinski will exhibit “From Here to There” in the Governor’s Office of the Capitol Building in Salem from June 4 to July 31.

Warpinski’s artistic work reflects her longstanding interest in the traces of human activity embedded in landscape. Oregon’s abundance of natural open spaces—whether oceans, rivers, plains (sage or grass), lakes or desert (dunes, scrub lands, or playas)—have been the source of contemplation and inspiration for her photography for more than 30 years.

After 32 years of teaching and administrative service at the University of Oregon, Warpinski is now a Professor Emerita of Art and dedicating her full attention to her studio practice. Her creative and scholarly career is distinguished by a Fulbright Fellowship (Israel 2000-2001) and most recently with a DAAD Research Grant (2016) to work in Berlin with the Stiftung Berliner Mauer as host institution. She is the recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship (2014) and two Career Opportunity Grants (2015, 2013) from The Ford Family Foundation and the Oregon Art Commission. She has been awarded numerous artist residencies, including at Ucross (2000), Playa (2011, 2014) and Caldera (2016).

Recently completed projects include “Surface Tension: three landscapes of division and Liminal Matter: Fences,” in collaboration with Portland poet Laura Winter. Her work has been shown in more than 125 exhibitions including the Pingyao International Festival of Photography in China; the US Embassy in Jerusalem; Houston International Fotofest; Center for Photography at Woodstock; the University of the Arts Philadelphia; and San Francisco’s Camerawork.

The Art in the Governor’s Office Program honors selected artists in Oregon with exhibitions in the reception area of the Governor’s Office in the State Capitol. Artists are nominated by a statewide committee of arts professionals who consider artists representing the breadth and diversity of artistic practice across Oregon, and are then selected by the Arts Commission with the participation of the Governor’s Office. Only professional, living Oregon artists are considered and an exhibit in the Governor’s office is considered a “once in a lifetime” honor. Artists whose work has previously been shown in the Governor’s office include Henk Pander, Michele Russo, Manuel Izquierdo, James Lavadour, Margot Thompson, Gordon Gilkey and Yuji Hiratsuka.

The Oregon Arts Commission provides leadership, funding and arts programs through its grants, special initiatives and services. Nine commissioners, appointed by the Governor, determine arts needs and establish policies for public support of the arts. The Arts Commission became part of Business Oregon (formerly Oregon Economic and Community Development Department) in 1993, in recognition of the expanding role the arts play in the broader social, economic and educational arenas of Oregon communities. In 2003, the Oregon legislature moved the operations of the Oregon Cultural Trust to the Arts Commission, streamlining operations and making use of the Commission’s expertise in grantmaking, arts and cultural information and community cultural development.

The Arts Commission is supported with general funds appropriated by the Oregon legislature and with federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts as well as funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust. More information about the Oregon Arts Commission is available online at:

Brand Identity and Package Design Opportunity

This is an opportunity for a student or student team to participate in brand identity design and development of packaging for a new product in the cannabis industry. Our lab has developed an innovative extract that improves on competitive products in efficacy, purity, taste, and price. We plan to market this product in the form of vape cartridges that will be sold in Oregon cannabis dispensaries. We are interested in creative packaging and brand designs that will emphasize the innovative nature of the product, and call attention to it in a crowded market place (as well as meet OLCC packaging standards).

We will consider students based on resumes or proposals. If selected, student designers/artists will work with our team to understand the market, the product, and our objectives. Students will then develop and refine proposed designs. Successful designers may be asked to collaborate in developing additional marketing material including a web page, copy, and print assets. For completing this work we will award a minimum $200 stipend. If the design is actually used, we will increase the stipend accordingly. Regardless, we will work with the students to ensure the experience is of value in developing a professional resume and portfolio.

While we will consider all proposals, there is benefit to having students who can legally enter the lab and dispensaries (over 21). We will necessarily adhere to Oregon law, OLCC regulations, and UO rules. For additional information, please contact Tus Henry at

Event 5/30: Margo Jefferson explores questions of identity and community

Journalist and cultural critic Margo Jefferson, an articulate voice critiquing race and culture in America, will speak at the UO on Wednesday, May 30 at 7:30 p.m. in 182 Lillis Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

In her lecture, “From ‘I’ to ‘We’: The Role of the Citizen-Critic,” Jefferson will explore how to bring all the traditions that shape us—intellectual, political, aesthetic—to complex questions of identity and community.

The daughter of a prominent physician and social worker-turned-socialite mother, Jefferson grew up in an upper-middle class black neighborhood in Chicago in the 1950s and ’60s. She writes about her experiences growing up in post-war America as a member of a privileged African American family in her memoir, Negroland.

Wood Engravers’ Network Triennial Exhibition

Dear Artists and Art lovers,

It’s such a pleasure to host the Third Triennial Traveling Exhibition by Wood Engravers’ Network in the multiple exhibition cases located on the first floor right here in our Lawrence Hall. They just arrived from the former venue, University of Wisconsin. We’ll have this opportunity to enjoy them until we ship them off to the next venue, Asheville Bookworks in North Carolina in early July.

The exhibition consists of stunning works by renowned wood engravers in the world. I hope you have a chance to stop by and spend time with them. I’m so thrilled to have them here!

All my best,



Mika Aono

artist needed

I am looking for an artist to draw a book cover for me.  It is a book of religious parody, specifically parodies of Christian hymns, so it is very irreverent, and so the person needs to be comfortable with having their art work on a book that is making fun of religious themes, sometimes in rather “strong” (but humorous) language.  The sketch below shows what I am looking for.  It is a picture of God being tripped up by some musical scores and falling over, with the musical scores carrying over to the back cover to create a circle/box containing the “blurb” and another picture of God dangling with his foot caught in the musical score.  I will pay $100 to anyone who can produce a good drawing for me (at the dimensions given), but I really would like this within the next 24 hours.  “Good” at least means that a person would immediately recognize the person in the picture as God.  Of course, you also get recognition/credit as the designer of a published book (unless you really want to remain anonymous).Thanks,Ward Ricker541-515-2445
