Painting on woodPainter

Exhibit dates: June 23 – August 29
Location: Dengerink Administration Building Gallery

Painter includes a selection of works from the Intermediate Painting class (FA 321), offered for the first time at WSUV in the Spring of 2014. These pieces challenge the history and the tactile quality of painting by exploring form and content, surface and material, the traditional and the experimental. The show also serves as a follow-up to the 18th Annual Fine Arts Student Exhibition, giving advanced students a chance to develop further their ideas in visual form. This year's Student Spotlight is on Alisa Greenwood, Autumn Sailer, and Janelle Williams.

Exhibit dates: June 23 – August 29
Location: Science and Engineering Building Gallery

Endangered Species showcases the work of Dana Nguyen and Kelsea Rothaus. They are among five students being featured as graduates of 2014. Dana's project, a series of painted portraits of obscured figures, shows "scientists who faced discrimination due to their race or gender, and who had their contributions to science downplayed." Kelsea's series, Vanish, "is a response to the symbolism and structure of the wooden burls that sits behind the acrylic paint. Each burl has painted on it an animal from the U.S. that is considered endangered or has been critically endangered in the past."

Entry to campus exhibits is free. WSU Vancouver galleries are open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. WSU Vancouver is located at 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave., east of the 134th Street exit from either I-5 or I-205. Parking is available at parking meters or in the blue lot for $3.00.
