Art Exhibit: What We Mean When We Say "Home"Apr 19, 2013, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art (2125 College Way) - Forest Grove
Works by Pacific University Media Arts associate professor Jennifer Hardacker display in the Cawein Gallery April 2-19.
Works by Pacific University associate professor Jennifer Hardacker will display in the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art at Pacific, beginning Tuesday, April 2 and continuing through Friday, April 19.
"What We Mean When We Say 'Home'," by Hardacker is an interactive multi-channel video installation that asks viewers to contemplate home.
Images projected within a cardboard house structure invoke some of the connotations of home, including that of hearth and nurture; but also the dichotomy of home as a part of community or as a site of isolation.
Viewers can participate by typing their thoughts about home and seeing their words then incorporated into the projected image.
Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
An opening reception will take place from 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3.
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-south directional 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 campus have 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 also scheduled 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.
