Tropical Contemporary Presents: Outside Inside

Tropical Contemporary Presents: Outside Inside

Opening: Saturday December 1st, 6-9pm, Show runs through December 16th

Tropical Contemporary,1120 Bailey Hill #11 Eugene OR

https://www.facebook.com/events/2026695930709588/

Outside Inside is a production of Tricia Knope and Clara Koons; A conversation on themes of technology, nature, three-dimensional space, and human-made materials. The show consists largely of flat pieces that span the border between painting and sculpture. Works stand on the same plane as the viewer, creating a sense of immersive space, but one that is easily betrayed by the objects’ flatness. The space feels simultaneously fake and real, physical and virtual, outside and inside.

“Conveniently Packaged for Your Wasteful Consumption”

“Conveniently Packaged for Your Wasteful Consumption”

A site-specific, collaborative installation

ARTR 346 Relief Printmaking

Please come, visit our large scale, site-specific collaborative art installation by Relief Printmaking class. It comprised of over 400 woodcut prints. Take-away prints will be available from our “vending” machine for your donation to a local non-profit, McKenzie River Trust. We hope this project to bring awareness to a huge trash problems in the ocean effecting marine life. It relates to the current exhibit, “Plastic Entanglement” at JSMA.

“Conveniently packaged for your wasteful consumption”

A site-specific, collaborative installation

ARTR 346 Relief Printmaking

Project Statement

 

Our collaborative installation is comprised of over 400 hand-carved woodcut prints depicting various items of trash such as plastic bottles, food packaging and wrappers, along with diverse sea creatures. Our intention is to bring awareness to our detrimental trash problem and its effect on marine life.

Our consumerism-driven society driven has made convenience our priority, but at what cost to Earth? Is it truly worth disrupting the delicate balance of the ecosystem? Our project addresses questions raised by the current exhibit, “Plastic Entanglement” at JSMA as well as a lecture by one of the selected artists, Dianna Cohen who leads a non-profit called Plastic Pollution Coalition.

Our “vending machine” appears to sell prints of beautiful sea creatures. However, what the viewer might get is one of the trash-themed prints, just as a fisherman might wind up with a chunk of garbage instead of catching any fish. According to Plastic Pollution Coalition, the oceans will contain more plastic per pound than fish by 2050. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a collection of floating trash halfway between Hawaii and California, has now grown to more than 600,000 square miles; that’s twice the size of Texas. We need to approach the problem with a sense of urgency to act now.

All the money deposited into the vending machine for the take-away prints will be donated to the local non-profit called McKenzie River Trust that focuses on environmental justice; they use 90% of all the money that they raise for land protection, land stewardship and public outreach. Clean protected river water running through conserved land with native species eventually reaches the ocean. Everything is connected.

Printmaking media has been a vehicle for social change and democracy. The methodology of producing multiples, particular to printing, has been widely utilized for spreading ideas and building community. As a class this term, we have been critically investigating how value is determined and what makes things worth sharing, telling and doing. This collaborative project stems from something that matters to us collectively.

Girlfriend’s Dog Neon Sign Christmas Gift – PAYING JOB

Hello my name is Stuart, I am looking to commission an artist who could draw a caricature/cartoon (roughly 36”x 36”) of my girlfriends dog and then later paint it on a sheet metal sign.  I theory this is going to be a neon sign of her dog (Instagram: @mister_mogul) that will be given to her as a surprise for Christmas.  It will have to be a two step process, first being the drawing.  This is because the sheet metal fabricator needs a silhouette/outline (the drawing) of the shape so they can cut, form, and weld it together.  Once the metal fabrication is complete the artist will paint their drawing onto the sign.

Below is a picture of a painted sign (the woman) I own that I like the style of, along with a couple pictures of the dog, and caricature drawings I’m envisioning.  I’m not looking for exact recreations of these pictures, just trying to give a general idea of what I’m thinking.  I’d love to see your style ideas.

Ideally I would like to get this completed before Christmas but if that timeframe is going to be hard too difficult in regards to winter break I could take delivery in January and call it an early birthday gift 😁.
I’m more then willing to pay, but I have no idea what to charge and would rather negotiate that fee with the interested parties involved.
For interested parties please contact me:

Alexandria Eregbu | Bijan Berahimi

DITCH PROJECTS is pleased to announce  exhibitions by
Alexandria Eregbu and Bijan Berahimi

Nov 10th – Dec 2, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION Saturday, Nov 10th, 6-9 PM

OH, HEAVENLY FATHER, MOTHER OCEAN,
AND COSMIC SEED…!

Alexandria Eregbu

Alexandria Eregbu (b. 1991) is a visual artist, independent curator, and educator. As a first-generation Nigerian woman and Chicago-native, central to Alexandria’s practice is the desire to activate personal narrative as a resource for examining the uses of language, visual storytelling and collectivized efforts towards provoking social empowerment and spiritual transformation. Through a steady mapping of lived occurrences and imaginary dreamscapes, Alexandria calls upon her experience, familial relationships to cloth, and knowledge received from the natural world in attempt to unlock connections between past, present, and future. Under the guidance of writing and research, Alexandria’s creative process alchemizes drawing, material studies, performance, textile production, ancestral histories and tradition as a means to honor, communicate, awaken, and further explore that which she considers sacred or ultimately worthy of diligent protection and preservation. Alexandria’s work has been widely exhibited, illuminating pathways globally, nationally, and throughout the Midwest. She has held fellowships with ACRE (Steuben, WI); HATCH Projects, Stony Island Arts Bank, (Chicago, IL); The Center for Afrofuturist Studies (Iowa City, IA), Independent Curators International (New Orleans, New York City, Martinique); and The Camargo Foundation/3Arts Residency (France). Amongst her curatorial projects is du monde noir, an artistically run collective that seeks to identify contemporary evidences of Surrealist activity produced by visual artists and writers of the African diaspora in the U.S. and abroad. Currently, Alexandria serves as a Curator of Commissioned Works for Illinois Humanities and their two-year initiative, “Envisioning Justice.” She is an MA Candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Visual & Critical Studies.

 Sunday Monday
Bijan Berahimi

Bijan Berahimi (b. 1989) is the director of FISK, a multidisciplinary creative studio and art gallery in Portland, Oregon. He is also adjunct faculty in the graphic design department at the Pacific Northwest College of the Arts. In 2013, he graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a degree in graphic design and moved to Portland, Oregon shortly thereafter. His work focuses on the mundane of everyday situations and highlights the normalcy of the visual world around us.

Sunday Monday is a show about what happens during the week. A tall tale about significant and insignificant silhouettes of our everyday. Monday and Sunday define the balance of work and play in our society. The stress of waking up to 100 emails on a Monday, with a looming week staring at a screen ahead and a Sunday, a time to play catch up and be human, social, and good. Utilizing familiar images of clipart, Bijan creates paintings that represent a more complex subconscious: the fear of a digital world and it’s repercussions or, the simple joy of having fresh flowers at home. This show challenges that work can be play, and play can be work. What’s the difference anyways?

PhotoShoot Needs – Student Help

Emerald Wedding-1jgwlsx

My name is Salina Clark and I’m an art director in the Portland area.

I’m reaching out because I’m putting a team together for a test shoot scheduled in mid November featuring a winter wedding theme.  We are specifically looking for models (a real couple would be amazing!) and a hair/make-up artist.

The uber talented Kaitlin Green and Amy Wennerlind are going to be our photographers. Susan Evans will be our photo/prop stylist. Heather Smith from Sea Of Roses is going to provide the florals. I will be art directing.

We are shooting at the beautiful Loloma Lodge (about an hour from Eugene) on November 12 (Veterans Day).

I am linking above a simple mood board here, but the focus will be on emerald greens and neutral tones. We want to keep the focus on the PNW -both with look/feel and talent/vendors.
This would be unpaid, but the students would get the benefit of working with experienced photographers and stylists. We would also, of course, acknowledge them in the final work presented whether it’s via social media, blog posts, etc.

Commissioned art work

I’m a nurse practitioner,NP, that works with 9 other NPs.  We want to get something for our boss who is also an NP that will embody her spirit.  She is about health, beauty, fertility, and strength.  I was thinking of a statue that we could have all our names engraved on or a painting?  Something she can have in her home that is substantial as far as quality and artistic beauty.  I am hoping you may know where to direct me for help with this.  Of course, we plan to pay for this.  Here is JUST an IDEA of a statue, the statue of Freya:

Freya is a goddess of love, beauty, fertility, war and death in Norse mythology, and rules over her heavenly afterlife field Folkvangr, where she receives half of those that die in battle. She is also a lover of cats, and is seen here with one of her beloved cats standing at her feet.

This link below is a smaller cheap version statue ( goddess of love, beauty and fertility not sure about the war, death and cats 😊

HOPES Meeting tomorrow!

Hi all!

Come help us decide this year’s conference topic at our meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, 10/24, from 5:15 – 6:15 in Lawrence 231! We will present our top five favorite topics and will vote as a group for our top three. This will be the last meeting to voice your opinion before the topic is announced at our meeting next week!

We will be providing tea and cookies as refreshments.

Recap of last week’s meeting:

We looked at broad theme directions which include:

Thinking in Context

Regenerative, Resilience & Net Positivity

Equity & Unheard Voices

Conscious Living & Accountability

Collaboration & Compromise

We then took a vote on the most popular directions

There seemed to be strong preferences for Conscious Living & Accountability as well as Equity & Unheard Voices.

We can’t wait to hear what you guys think about this years theme!

Best,

Valley River Center Art Partnership

We will have 2 hedge walls sitting side by side and measuring 8ft high x 4ft wide x 15in deep each located in the Center Court of the mall.

I’d like to have a yearly rotating themed décor on the hedge walls that are visually stimulating for guests and that could be used as a fun photo opportunity. I’d like to switch out the décor every two months as follows:

January-February: winter themed

March-April: Easter/spring themed

May-June: spring/summer themed

July-August: patriotic/ July 4th themed

September-October: fall themed

November- December: Christmas/Holiday themed

The materials used for the décor are up to the artist/designer. I can provide up to $500 for each session listed above for materials.

I can place a 22×28 inch sign by the hedge walls with information about the designer.

I am flexible on the details as needed.

Thanks,

Dani Olsen | Marketing Manager

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

OPENING RECEPTION Saturday, Octoer 6,

Members of SOIL Artist-Run Gallery present Every Movement Reveals Us, an exhibition of both collaborative and individual works based on the methodologies of Hermann Rorschach, whose ubiquitous inkblots, still used today, are considered a sizable contribution to psychiatric theories and practices. The show’s title, a quote by French philosopher Michel de Montaigne, was once used by literary critic Jean Starobinski to describe the significance of Rorschach’s work, the spirit of which resonates within the exuberant discoveries between and among the artists of SOIL.

Founded in 1995, SOIL is a not-for-profit cooperative space in Seattle, WA, established, supported and operated by local artists. SOIL exists as an alternative venue for artists to exhibit, develop, and advance their work, and is committed to exhibiting and celebrating art of diverse media and content. The cooperative has been in existence for 23 years and has been consistent in showing a different exhibition each month that opens on every first Thursday. It has received substantial local as well as national press attention.
Participating SOIL artists:

Iole Alessandrini         Nola Avienne         Colleen RJC Bratton
Jana Brevick           Chris Buening        Emily Counts
John Freeman          Trevor Goosen         Ben Hirschkoff
