Photography taken while on a recent trip to Italy by Pacific University assistant professor and Art Department chair Jim Flory comprises the current exhibit in the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art. Included are photos from Siena, Rome and Florence.
Flory's latest collection will be on display April 2-18. Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is free.
"My last trip to Italy was 37 years ago," Flory said. "Italy is like an old friend you haven't seen in years: vibrant, older, exciting and still beautiful. I was pleased that is has not changed so much in all these years."
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.
