Baker’s Dozen SOU Creative Arts Faculty Show and New Works: SMA Collection 2012-2014
Baker’s Dozen will showcase the diverse and engaging works of the Southern Oregon University Creative Arts faculty. New Works: SMA Collection 2012-2014 will feature works by national and international artists newly represented in the Museum’s collection. The exhibitions will be on view from January 12 through March 14, 2015.
Baker’s Dozen will feature work by the Southern Oregon University Department of Creative Arts Faculty, revealing a wide range of approaches and disciplines. Artists include David Bithell, Cody Bustamante, Miles Inada, Peg Sjogren, Robin Strangfeld and visiting professors Rene Allen, Brooks Dierdorff, Summer Ventis, and Ben Waterman. A series of talks by the participating artists, readings by Creative Writing faculty Kasey Mohammed, Robert Arellano, and Craig Wright, and lectures by Professors Melissa Geppert and Warren Hedges will enrich the exhibition.
New Works: SMA Collection 2012-2014 will feature many works donated to the Museum by individual patrons, as well as works purchased with grant funding from The Ford Family Foundation and the Oregon Arts Commission. These grants were awarded to the Museum to purchase photographic works by acclaimed Oregon artists Akihiko Miyoshi, Arnold Kemp, and Evan LaLonde. These additions are an important educational resource for the community as well as academic departments.
