Photography by Edward Alfano and Lynn Cazabon. Free and open to the public. Artist Reception will take place on Wed., Nov. 2 from 4 to 5 p.m.

Photography by Edward Alfano and Lynn Cazabon is on display at Pacific University's Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art from Tuesday, Nov. 1 through Wednesday, Nov. 23. The Cawein Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m.

An Artist Reception featuring light fare and refreshments will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 4 to 5 p.m.

Alfano has been photographing with infrared film for more than 30 years. His work explores time and space as a continuum that allows viewers to contemplate and interpret.

Cazabon's "Uncultivated" presentation is an on-going series that explores the urban ecology of Baltimore, namely its wild plant life, commonly referred to as weeds. The project seeks to capture an time-lapsed representation of Baltimore's landscape.

Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.


About the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art

Located at the heart of Pacific University, the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art is integrated into the southeast corner of Harvey W. Scott Hall. 

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 monthly throughout the academic year, and are provided at no cost to the public through the University’s Art Department. This program constitutes a service that benefits both the University community and the surrounding region.

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 them a chance to share his or her creative inspirations and motivations related to the works on display.
