Thesis Show

Tonight was the opening of an art show highlighting work from all seven graduating post baccalaureate students from the Oregon College of Art and Craft (of which I am one). Though I got my certificate in Book Arts (binding and printmaking), I opted to put three of my paintings in the show. They are up in the school's Hoffman Gallery through May 9th, at which point they will make their way to a second show downtown, joining the work of the BFA graduates.

This series stems from work involving table tops I started shortly after getting my BA in 2007. Here are all three (click for larger image)

[Out, Out Brief Candle]

[Of Each According to His Ability, to Each According to His Need]

[The Rain on the Eaves/Drives Me Awake]

All are 2010, acrylic and vintage book pages on panel, 24" x 16."

One show down, four to go! Recent graduates of OCAC are given plenty of opportunities to show their work in Portland... let's hope the momentum keeps up after May!
