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:  www.oregonartscommission.org.

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 tushenry@gmail.com.

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.

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.

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,

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

Professor Huhtamo’s Cabinet of Media Archaeology” is a series about little known but influential media machines. It is meant for media education at any level and for anyone interested in media archaeology and the early history of the moving image.

Design Volunteer

My name is Ting-fen Lin. I’m a PhD student at the College of Edu. I recently started a  student wellness club called Yesplus. I’m wondering if I can find someone from your college who can help design our club logo and banner for OrgSync as a volunteer.
Here’s what the OrgSync requirements for logo and cover photo (see the attached picture if needed):

Logo requirement: use .JPG .GIF or .PNG format (10MB size limit) Recommended size: 300×300

Cover photo requirement: 2000 pixels wide x 320 pixels tall. The image must be a jpg, png or gif
(the grassy green background of the Yesplus name and icon photo, that area is the cover photo.)

Also, I would envision the logo to be something like this but I really need a set of artistic eyes and skills to make this logo more color coordinated and with good resolution both for the original file and the 300×300 file.

All interested can contact me (Ting-fen Lin) @ tlin@uoregon.edu. I hope to finish this project in about 14 days (by May 12) if not shorter.

Fun opportunity for art students!

I graduated from the journalism school at U of O in 2015 and am now on the marketing team at Escape Campervans in Denver. We’re the largest campervan rental company in North America, with 10 depot locations across the US and Canada.

I’m reaching out because I’d love to get the word out to some fellow creative ducks to enter our contest to help us design the artwork for our new truck camper rentals, coming summer 2018. What’s particularly unique about Escape is that all 500+ of our campervans are hand-painted by talented artists at our depot in Los Angeles, which means we essentially have a mobile art gallery seen by folks all across the country! Past artists we’ve worked with include Drew Brophy, Dcypher, Haste, DJ Neff, Augustine Kofie, and Vyal One, just to name a few.

Unlike our typical process of sanding, spray painting, and wrapping the campervans at our LA depot, the truck campers are going to be wrapped, which opens up new opportunities to folks from all over the country in mediums like graphic design, digital art, watercolor, and more to be included in the process. Deadline to submit is 4/25, and there is a cash prize. More details can be found here: https://www.escapecampervans.com/blog/artist-contest-help-design-our-newest-model/

ATO Article: Bach Festival Brings Trumpet Virtuoso to Eugene




CONTACT: Josh Gren, Director of Marketing & Communications

April 5, 2018 – [Eugene, OR] – Ahead of its 2018 Season, Oregon Bach Festival (OBF) welcomes international trumpet sensation Rodney Marsalis to Eugene on April 16 and 17. In partnership with the University of Oregon (UO) School of Music and Dance, OBF engaged Marsalis to speak with UO students, faculty, and the public about his career as a musician and the necessary role of empowerment and entrepreneurship in today’s music industry.

The first lecture and conversation, which will discuss Marsalis’ career and the importance of empowering underrepresented groups in the music business, takes place April 16 at Noon at Berwick Hall on the UO campus.

The following day, Marsalis visits students in two UO School of Music classes to discuss the life of a professional musician and entrepreneur with the next generation of professional musicians, educators, and arts advocates. A Brass Sectional will be held at 1pm in the MarAbel B. Frohnmayer Music Building, Room 190, and “Music, Money, and Law with Rodney Marsalis” will follow immediately at 2pm in Berwick Hall. All three sessions are free and open to the public. In addition to his guest speaker role, Marsalis will spend a portion of his time in Eugene working with musicians from a local youth orchestra.

Marsalis, a graduate of the highly prestigious Curtis Institute of Music, leads The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass, which will perform twice during the 2018 Oregon Bach Festival.

More information about The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass concert, as well as the entire OBF 2018 Season, is available at www.oregonbachfestival.org.


University of Oregon is a world-class teaching and research institution and Oregon’s flagship public university. The UO School of Music and Dance presents more than 250 concerts and events during the academic year featuring scholars, guest artists, faculty artists, and student ensembles. The incredible wealth of concert material ranges from contemporary dance to African dance, early and classical music to contemporary music, world music, and jazz.

Oregon Bach Festival (OBF) has presented the masterworks of J.S. Bach, and composers inspired by his work, to audiences in Eugene and throughout the State of Oregon for nearly five decades. The annual event began as a collaboration between German Conductor and Organist, Helmuth Rilling and former Associate Dean of the University of Oregon School Of Music, Royce Saltzman. In addition to traditional choral-orchestral masterworks, the festival also presents internationally renowned guest artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Midori, Pink Martini and Joshua Bell, and offers educational opportunities, children and family programing, and community events.
