Now showing the glorious concert photography of Meerah Powell in the Aperture Gallery of the EMU. Meerah Powell was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, and spent a lot of time around music growing up. Whether it was watching performances from the crowd, or playing in bands on the stage, music was what made Meerah feel most at home — and it was what introduced her to journalism. Meerah is a self-taught photographer and began writing about and photographing live music when she began studying at the University of Oregon, working with the Daily Emerald and later on, after graduating with the class of 2017, as a staff writer with Eugene Weekly. Having the chance to photograph and talk with some of her favorite artists throughout the years helped Meerah grow not only professionally, but personally. Although now she's heavily covering news, working as a general assignment and breaking news reporter for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland, she still spends a great amount of time around music as it will always serve as a great inspirational and creative space for her. The works of Meerah Powell will be on display in the Aperture Gallery from now until the end of Spring term.

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Adell McMillan Galley

Emergence: Art from Inside features work by twenty artists who are incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary and the Oregon State Correctional Institution - both located in Salem, Oregon - as well as youth artists from Serbu Youth Detention Center in Eugene. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Visual Arts Team and the UO Prison Education Program, which provides for-credit UO courses and other academic programming at five adult and youth facilities in Oregon. The UO Prison Education Program was established in 2016, building on ten years of collaboration with the Oregon Department of Corrections to offer Inside-Out courses at Oregon State Penitentiary and the Oregon State Correctional Institution. Some artists represented in the exhibition have taken many classes through the UO's programming inside these institutions, while others have not. The goal of bringing these pieces together to offer the venue for the work and talent of incarcerated artists to emerge into a space of higher education. Likewise, the exhibition aims to offer a glimpse into the common threads and variations emergent across work being created inside, with an opportunity for incarcerated artists to describe what art making means to them. Emergence will be on view throughout Spring term. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 18th from 6-7pm here in the Adell McMillan Gallery.
