FOREST GROVE — Works by Portland artist Emily Ginsburg will display in the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art at Pacific University in Forest Grove, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 4 and continuing through Friday, Feb. 28.

“Mixed Feelings” is an exhibition of new works in glass, animation and sound.

In this body of work, Ginsburg examines simultaneity and distinctiveness in the physical, spoken, contemplative and emotional levels of experience through a collection of visual and audio scores.

She is currently professor and chair of media arts at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.

Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. 

Ginsburg will discuss her work at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 5. A reception in the gallery will follow and conclude at 1 p.m.

Admission to both the exhibit and reception are free.

Located in the heart of Pacific University, the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art is integrated into the southeast corner of Harvey W. Scott Hall (2125 College Way). 

The gallery is named in recognition of the late Kathrin Cawein of New York, who, beyond being an accomplished printmaker and contributor to Pacific University, established an endowed scholarship for students of the arts at Pacific.

The fund was established through the sale of her intaglio etchings and engravings during exhibits at Pacific, as well as from the proceeds of her estate after death in 1996. 

The gallery’s north-southdirectional orientation, track lighting, and textural wall surfacing contrasted with brick walls provide a wonderful space in which to view art. 

Outside window views bring natural light and a sense of warmth from the campus environment into the gallery. Adequate storage and an exterior south entrance facing the center of campushave made the gallery known as one of the best university galleries in the state of Oregon. 

Exhibits change throughout the academic year and are provided at no cost to the public through the university’s Art Department

Receptions with exhibiting artists at the openings of their showings provide an opportunity for community enrichment and cultural growth.

At times, artist talks are alsoscheduled to coincide with the exhibit schedule, to give the artist a chance to share his or her creative inspirations and motivations related to the works on display.
