John and June Allcott Gallery: One Week MFA Thesis Exhibition, Vanessa Murray

March 27 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm

Uncertain Becomings explores my interest in the physical presence of painting. The surfaces of the work are important. I see these paintings as a sort of reverse or positive excavation process. Negative spaces or cavities are formed from accumulative applications. The surfaces of my paintings intend to reward close looking and investigation. Moments of transparency between areas of thick, solid, smoothed out expanses of paint promote a sense of geologic time or stratification. I’m creating forms through my process that hover between certain dualities: vacant yet solid, ethereal yet earthly, weightless yet topographical. The amassing of layers become suggestive of geologic formations, cavernous and sometimes bodily forms.

John and June Allcott Gallery: One Week MFA Thesis Exhibition: Lamar Whidbee

April 3 @ 8:00 am - April 7 @ 5:00 pm

This thesis exhibit entitled “Dear Son …” is about such thoughts. I write letters and notes to my son on a variety of substrates such as canvas and wood intertwined with objects like speakers and baby bottles to express to him some of my darkest thoughts and fears. This scribbled text is written to give him a bit of my life in the current state of the world but prayer like in hope that he doesn't have to experience such matters.

Art History Colloquium: Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote, American Studies

April 21 @ 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm

“Kiowa Painters:  Innovation in Art and Dance, 1928-1940” Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote’s research interests center upon American Indian history, material, and expressive culture. Her current project, a book manuscript based on her dissertation, entitled “Envisioning Nationhood:  Kiowa Expressive Culture 1875-1939,” argues that expressive culture (beadwork, metalwork, painting, and dance) is a vital location through which the Kiowa, a tribe in Oklahoma have created, maintained, and reformulated the boundaries and bonds of their nation.  She has also done research on nineteenth century Plains…
