For four weeks, visitors to the Kathrin Cawein Gallery on Pacific University’s Forest Grove Campus can work alongside artist Emily Miller to create their own pieces made from plastic debris pulled from the ocean as well as from fishing rope and nets.

This project consists of an installation and series of talks that dig into that question. In “Patchwork Galaxy”, the painter, Kendra Larson and musician, Christopher Buckingham explore symbolism, light, and the universe.
The opening reception will take place at noon on Wednesday, April 24.
On Thursday, June 14, the undergraduate student participants of the inaugural URSCI (Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Inquiry) Summer Institute will formally and publicly present the projects they have been working on.
The Cawein Gallery is excited to host Ashland artist Betty LaDuke, whose intricately carved and painted wood panels document the stories of Latino Farmworkers in the Pacific Northwest.

Senior Show 2017: (e)MOTION April 26 - May 20
Portland artist Laura Hughes, whose exhibition "The Tomb" is on display through April 19, will discuss her today at 4 p.m.
This exhibition offers a place of respite to contemplate dislocation of memory. A tomb is a site for remembrance and longing; a projection of what once was and an effort to preserve what is eternally embedded within. Light and shadow have a metaphorical connection to temporal presence and material loss. 
Earth’s moon, its tidal pull and the coastlines these tides create are at the center of my current research. Coastlines are full of pluralities; they are the space between land and sea, and this line itself is constantly in flux through the movement of each tide. They bear the results of ancient, cyclical geology: the breakdown of rocky ground into sand, and the subsequent compression of sand into sedimentary rock.
