The Visual Arts Team is excited to present "Border Lands 2019" in the Adell McMillan Gallery for Summer 2021! Find the Visual Arts Team on Instagram @uovisualarts or Facebook @visualartsteam. UO ID required to visit the show in person -- a virtual tour will be shared via social media!

Artist statement:

"Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey" is an experience on both sides of the Arizona and Mexico borders. Migrants and asylum seekers, individuals and families from Mexico and Central America desperately seek the American Dream of safety and opportunity. The sketches are amplified with the text to tell their story as well as the humanitarian aid migrants receive from several nonprofit organizations, including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, No More Deaths, Kino Border Initiative, and the Border Community Alliance. The Sisters of Notre Dame in Douglas, Arizona have a presence in the border lands providing their hospitality to all who hunger, thirst, and are in need of compassion. The goal of all these groups is building bridges, not walls. 

As an artist, the sketchbook is my primary means for recording first-hand experience and events. Later, in my studio, I transform select sketches into wood panels. These social justice panels frequently become circulating exhibitions at educational institutions and community art centers, and permanent public installations.

The Visual Arts Team is excited to present Crescendo, an exhibition of cyanotypes by Thea Owens. Find the Visual Arts Team on Instagram @uovisualarts or Facebook @visualartsteam. UO ID required to visit the show in person -- a virtual tour will be shared via social media!

 

Artist Statement:

A series of seven self portraits made by Thea in the crescendo of her isolation experience. An experiment of loneliness, fearing the passage of time, seeking identity, and loving creativity.

I know why I originally made it, the idea - see what would happen if I made the same photos over a span of time of different days. And I know why in retrospect I made it - trying to make myself known, show people I exist. To combat time and it's forgetting and prove that subtlety matters.
