Female reading an artist statement

The Washington State University Vancouver galleries host rotating exhibits that feature the work of regional artists, student artwork and cultural exhibits. The exhibits are facilitated by the Diversity Art Council and the campus gallery director. The council supports the campus diversity mission to enhance learning about respect for diversity and quality.

Art is an integral part of lifelong learning, specifically art that provokes interest in diverse cultures and artistic forms. The council’s aim is to make art accessible to the public in a way that creates connections and collaborations to advance cultural learning. The exhibits are chosen to create supportive interaction among diverse populations and foster respect among viewers with varying personal values and ideas.

Ink on Paper

Exhibit dates: through March
Location: Library

With a centuries-long history of development, the practice of transferring ink to paper has served as a crucial link in creating an informed, literate and reflective society. The cultural shift to networked communication, with all its advantages, has not altered the original appeal of works on paper. “Ink on Paper” is a print-based display that includes undergraduate student work and provides a wide range of examples of the beauty that is, ink on paper.
