Great leadership opportunity

My name is Yasmeen, and I’m the U.S. Field Organizer with Global Zero, the international movement to eliminate nuclear weapons. Recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Global Zero is backed by an international community of leaders and experts, and powered by the creativity and passion of young people who understand that nuclear weapons have no place in the 21st century. We use grassroots power and cutting edge policy to mobilize communities across the globe to get us to zero.

I am reaching out to you today because Global Zero is recruiting top young activists across the country for our year-long activist fellowship, Action Corps, and seeking applications from students at University of Oregon. The Action Corps announcement s linked here 

Action Corps leaders are at the forefront of the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons: spearheading the campaign in their city or campus, directing outreach in their communities, and leading as the face of a vision for a world without nukes. Leaders are mentored by Global Zero staff and world-renowned visionaries like General James Cartwright and William Perry as they learn about international policy, work with local and national media, lobby elected officials, gain leadership and campaign skills, and build their own Global Zero chapter to organize against the nuclear threat.

Southern Willamette Valley Natural Areas

Through the Seasons

Ed Alverson

Natural Areas Coordinator, Lane County Parks

Alverson wanted to see familiar landscapes from a different perspective, to expand the time scale, since different elements of the landscape operate on

different time scales. He took weekly photos of a dozen or more scenes of a particular site for an entire year, choosing a different site each year over ten years. His presentation of landscape changes at the rate of two seconds a week can change our conception of the passage of time.

Opening May 20 | Dannielle Tegeder: TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS

Carrie Secrist Gallery is happy to announce our first solo exhibition with gallery artist Dannielle Tegeder:
Dannielle Tegeder | TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS
Opening reception: Saturday, May 20 from 5 to 8 PM
Exhibition dates:
May 20 – July 1, 2017 
Dannielle Tegeder’s newest body of work expands on her ever-evolving exploration of the systems that surround us. This exhibition presents a monumental mobile, an installation of over 70 works on paper, a series of large-scale drawings, video animations and sound. As a full body of work, oriented within the gallery space to encourage exploration and interpretation, the integration of formal concepts such as architecture and urban planning manifest through abstraction.
Encompassing the language of painting in the expanded field, Dannielle Tegeder’s artwork reconstitutes what painting means as a formal exercise in mark making by allocating particular strategies to the medium of drawing. The notion of “Drawing” then becomes delineated by introducing installation methods that further disrupt media-specific hierarchies: drawing to sculpture to installation to video to sound and back to drawing. Expanding and contracting these constructs, with the idea of drawing as a baseline, emboldens the interconnectedness between line, shape and color. Thus: drawing as sculpture as installation as video as sound.
SPECIAL EVENT
Matthew Evan Taylor
Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 4PM at Carrie Secrist Gallery
Composer and saxophonist Matthew Evan Taylor will present a site-specific performance in collaboration with Dannielle Tegeder on the occasion of TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS. Taylor and Tegeder will also talk about their ongoing collaboration, this project and the history of sound and abstraction.
 
This event will be free and open to the public.

Associate Professor of Art Ron Jude will launch a new book entitled “Nausea” in London on May 19th.

Associate Professor of Art Ron Jude will launch a new book entitled “Nausea”
in London on May 19th. He will be signing books in the bookshop at The
Photographers’ Gallery at 5:00 pm, followed by a conversation with curator
and writer David Chandler at 6:30 pm. “Nausea” is Jude’s third book with
London-based publisher MACK.
“Nausea”—taken from the title of Sartre’s 1938 existential novel—is a
body of photographs that registers the interiors of public schools in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana and Atlanta, Georgia. Departing from mere documentation,
however, Ron Jude lures us into peering through windows, doorways and
crevices of walls into empty classrooms and corridors, as we become
increasingly conscious of the perils of our own gaze.
David Chandler is a writer, editor and curator in the fields of contemporary
photography, photographic history and the visual arts and is currently
Professor of Photography at the School of Art, Design and Architecture,
Plymouth University. He was curator at The Photographers’ Gallery from 1988
to 1995.
The Book Signing is free, the talk requires booking. £8/£5 Members &
Concessions.
The Photographers’ Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies St, London W1F 7LW

20th at Photo London and Offprint London.

PDX Summer 2017 Art Therapy Courses

Creative, hands-on professional development courses in cooperation with PSU for educators, counselors, therapists and students.

Hello Everyone!

Spring has sprung in my corner of Sweden and I hope it has in your world too!

The daffodils are fading as the tulips rise and trumpet their brilliant petals. Our 4 week old chicks are plump and the local wild hares are as prolific as ever. That’s life on a Swedish farm!

Believe it or not… the summer is not so far away. I’m looking forward to flying into Portland to teach three workshop courses in cooperation with Portland State University. It would be lovely if you could join us.

But first…. just a quick update on my recent activities –

On Tuesday April 25th I returned home from five days in Bulgaria where I taught 40-plus students two of the PDX summer course offerings for the Arts and Therapy Institute of Sofia.

The first course was the Healing Children through Creativity Workshop and the second was the Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop. An honor to work with an amazing group of people dedicated to helping children and adults in Bulgaria. Check out the pictures above and below for a peek at some of our creative processes.

Next item…

Announcing our Summer 2017 Workshops:

  • New course!Exploring Jungian Archetypes: An Art Therapy Workshop for Counselors and Therapists, July 24 and 25, 2017.
  • Healing Children through Creativity: Art Therapy Training Workshop, July 26 and 27, 2017
  • Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop, July 31 and August 1, 2017.

You are welcome to register for the Early-bird tuition now!

Opening Reception | Friday, May 5, 6 – 8:00 P.M.

We have found ourselves facing a sobering reality of the fragile and
threatened support for the arts. As institutional directions are frequently
changing and budgets continually diminished, the very foundations of creative
venues and organizations have become easy prey. Institutional, community and
civic priorities are expressed – or dismissed – through financial
referendums. Currently, this is a global, national, and ultimately local
truth.
Functionally United will serve as the final curated exhibition for White Box.
On July 1, following the University of Oregon Art and Technology graduating
exhibition the doors will close for the last time. An important and
influential chapter for the Northwest’s arts community will officially come
to an end.
This final line-up of exhibiting artists is a testament to the impact, depth,
and reach White Box has had locally, across Oregon, and nationally. This is
not an exhibition where the spacious, room-to-breath aesthetic of displaying
work will be implemented, but rather will be a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling
collection of incredible talent. A group that formed out of solidarity for
one of Portland’s iconic art venues, many have previously exhibited in the
gallery and all have experienced, influenced and provoked White Box in some
degree.
White Box at the University of Oregon in Portland has served as a visual
laboratory invested in the exploration and presentation of contemporary
critical inquiry in the visual arts since 2010. Located in the historic White
Stag Block in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown neighborhood, White Box has a
vibrant history of bringing together artists, students, faculty, and regional
and global communities to research and present contemporary issues in art and
design. This history and collection of exhibitions cannot be properly
represented in a statement. But, I am hopeful it will serve as a symbol of
White Box continuing to fuel individual artists as well as Oregon’s
artistic, social and civic communities long after the lights are off.
Please join us in saying farewell.

Amanda Wojick
Cutouts and Collage

Paintings and Sculpture


Amanda Wojick is an artist based in Eugene, Oregon who creates inventive, brightly colored artworks that accentuate the handmade process. Cutouts and Collage features new sculptures and paintings that highlight Wojick’s idiosyncratic artmaking practice and dynamic visual vocabulary.

Wojick’s work merges highly personal and symbolic traces from the cultural space of the home, with imperfect geometry and wobbly patterns. Her latest creations are inspired by small freehand paper cutouts and other everyday materials found within the space that she lives. Using layers of unexpected texture, vibrant colors, and surprising arrangements, she creates unique hybrids that intermingle elements of painting, sculpture, and collage.

The exhibition features multicolored standing sculptures, stacked wooden wall pieces, and intimately-sized paintings flecked with gold, gingham fabric or painted polka dots. Every one of Wojick’s imaginative new artworks are enlivened by her inventive use of surface, scale and materiality.

Amanda Wojick received a MFA from Bard College and from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and a BA from Colgate University. She has had recent exhibitions at Stene Projects (Stockholm, Sweden), Ucross Art Gallery (Sheridan, WY), Disjecta, (Portland, OR), and the The Art Gym, (Marylhurst, OR). Past exhibitions include Gridspace, (Brooklyn, NY), Buffalo Arts Studio (Buffalo, NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA), Susan Hobbs Gallery, (Toronto, Canada), Whatcom Museum (Bellingham, WA), Jordan Schnitzer Museum at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR), and Sun Valley Center for the Arts (Ketchum, ID) among others. Her work is included in the permanent collection of Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum and many private collections.

Save the date! 2017 Pierson Lecture: Thursday, May 18, 3:30-5:00 in Gerlinger Lounge

Elliott is the author of many books and articles on women, sexuality, and mysticism in medieval Europe, most recently The Bride of Christ Goes to Hell: Metaphor and Embodiment in the Lives of Pious Women, 200-1500 (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2012). 
 
Elliott will give a presentation titled “Back to the Future: Scandal, Pederasty, and the Medieval Church.” This year’s Pierson Lecture will take place on Thursday, May 18, in the Gerlinger Lounge at 3:30-5:00 pm.

She’ll examine the impact of social movements—including civil rights, Black power, student, feminist, and sexual liberation—on conceptualism and its legacies in the United States between the late 1960s and the 1990s. Shaked will discuss the turn to political reference in practices originally concerned with philosophically abstract ideas and trace key strategies in contemporary art today to the reciprocal influences of conceptualism and identity politics.

Nemertean worms are some of the ocean’s strangest carnivores, both in colorful body designs and prey capture techniques.

Commodities, Traders: Ron Jude and Milton Rogovin April 8 – May 26, 2017 Gallery Luisotti, Santa Monica, CA

Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce Commodities, Traders, a two-person
exhibition of photographs by Ron Jude and Milton Rogovin. Jude’s series of
color photographs Executive Model, which depicts closely cropped views of
men’s backs in formal business attire in several financial districts, is
paired with Rogovin’s highly specific black and white photographs of coal
miners and their families from around the world. For this unlikely
presentation of artists from different generations, Rogovin’s photographs
will be arranged around the main part of the gallery primarily by region and
Jude’s photographs will be placed in a borderline claustrophobic line along
the back wall of the gallery behind the front desk. This spatial arrangement
heightens the readings of the individuals on view—visible and engaged as
opposed to turned away and mysterious. The exhibition comes at a turbulent
and unpredictable time in American life when the workers of shrinking
industries are being made questionable promises by the president while
financial markets are performing at record highs.
Jude’s Executive Model portrays its subjects in an opaque manner. This
opacity corresponds to the vagaries of high level financial trading to those
outside the world of finance. Jude made the work by following businessmen,
usually unnoticed, around Wall Street and its correlates around the country.
The men loom large in the frame, matching the partial views of skyscrapers
around them. Jude’s project echoes Vito Acconci’s Following Piece (1969),
and in the repetition of the business suit, typologies by the Bechers. There
is a narrow range of individuality that these men express, usually marked by
the presence or absence of pinstripes, slightly different haircuts, and
shades of fabric between dark navy and black. As unidentifiable as these men
are, the viewer has little idea as to what they actually do. The
unaccountability takes on an eerie dimension.
The differences between the two projects are numerous, in form and content,
but those differences belie the deep connections between the lives of coal
miners and those who work in the financial sector. Curiously, despite the
contemporary feel of Jude’s work, it was made in the early 1990s, shortly
after Rogovin had concluded photographing miners and other workers in the
late 1980s. This contiguity of timing speaks to a kind of break or passing
between types of economies, from a market of industrial products to a market
of information or even financial products themselves. 1980 marked the year of
peak coal industry employment in the United States and the beginning of
accelerated neo-liberalization under President Ronald Reagan. While the
government is often seen as antagonizing the coal industry, any examination
of the matter makes it clear that coal is simply being outperformed and
undercut by natural gas on the commodities market. Despite all appearances
and the changes in the industries shown, Rogovin’s miners are linked by the
market to Jude’s anonymous moneymen.
The exhibition will open on April 8 and will run through May 26, 2017. For more information about the exhibition or artists, please call (310) 453-0043.
