Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

This collaborative exhibition between the JSMA and the George D. Green Art Institute celebrates recent work by forty-five artists who began their creative careers in Oregon during the 1960s and '70s. Among those whose paintings (as well as sketchbooks, ceramics, and mixed-media works incorporating paint) will be featured. Participating artists include: Susan Applegate, Jay Backstrand, Rob Bibler, Sharon Bronzan, Sandy Brooke, Clint Brown, Karen Carson, Craig Cheshire, Margaret Coe, Jon Colburn, Bets Cole, Jon Jay Cruson, Robert Dozono, Robert Gamblin, Humberto Gonzalez, Dennis Gould, Cie Goulet, George Green, John Haugse, Carol Hausser, Jeri Hise, George Johanson, Leland John, Kacey Joyce, Connie Kiener, Edwin Koch, James Lavadour, Nancy Lindburg, Margaret Matson, Sue-Del McCulloch, Gary Meacham, Terry Melton, Ken O'Connell, Paula Overbay, Lucinda Parker, Jan Reaves, Laura Ross-Paul, Sandra Roumagoux, Erik Sandgren, Isaka Shamsud-Din, Jim Shull, Susan Trueblood Stuart, Richard Thompson, Hugh Webb, and Phyllis Yes. 

This exhibition will showcase how this generation of artists continues to represent the highest levels of artistic statement and creative accomplishment, while maintaining commitments to personalized styles. Sixty years after their careers started in this state - in many cases, as students of the University of Oregon's M.F.A. Program, at Oregon State University, or at Portland's Museum Art School (now Pacific Northwest College of Art) - these artists continue to create art that inspires and expands this state's artistic landscape. Thanks to a Ford Family Foundation Exhibition and Documentation Support Grant, the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with essays by JSMA McCosh Curator Danielle Knapp and Dr. Henry Sayer, Distinguished Professor of Art History at Oregon State University - Cascades Campus. 

Visual Magic: An Oregon Invitational is made possible with the generous support of the Coeta and Donald Barker Changing Exhibitions Endowment, Arlene Schnitzer and Jordan Schnitzer, the Oregon Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and JSMA members. The accompanying catalog was funded by a Ford Family Foundation Exhibition and Documentation Support Grant and the George D. Green Art Institute’s Benefactors (Sonya McDowell Education Grant, Meri & Scott McLeod, Stephen & Dr. Becky Miller-Moe) and Sponsors (Sharon Bronzan, Sandy Brooke, Karen Carson, Barb & Dave Corden, Jon Jay Cruson, Robert & Noriko Dozono, Sandy Green, Dinny Hausser & Lenny Held, Nels Hall & Deb Mawson, Terry Melton, Ward Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, Annie Painter, Betsy & Wally Preble, Ned Preble, Jane & Reagan Ramsey, Laura Ross-Paul, and Andy Thaler).

The JSMA mourns the recent losses of two featured artists, Edwin "Ed" Koch (1937 - 2018) and Janet "Jan" Reaves (1945 - 2018).

Her designs have been displayed at numerous exhibitions and galleries, including Design Miami and ICFF, Chicago Cultural Center and featured on the pages of Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Fast Company to name a few as well as earning a permanent space at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Cranbrook Art Museum collection and Calder foundation. Jay has worked alongside NYC-based, Italian designer, Gaetano Pesce on a multitude of projects from furniture, installations, and product design. She served as a visiting professor for The University of Illinois at Chicago teaching Industrial Design within the school’s undergraduate and master’s programs.She holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Sculpture from Kookmin University, South Korea and a master’s degree in 3D Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan.

Davis Family Lecture 

Pope.L: "Until Now"

Pope.L will present a compact survey of several strands in his art practice to-date. Pope.L (b. 1955, Newark) is a visual artist and educator whose multidisciplinary practice uses binaries, contraries and preconceived notions embedded within contemporary culture to create art works in various formats, for example, writing, painting, performance, installation, video and sculpture. Building upon his long history of enacting arduous, provocative, absurdist performances and interventions in public spaces, Pope.L applies some of the same social, formal and performative strategies to his interests in language, system, gender, race and community. The goals for his work are several: joy, money and uncertainty— not necessarily in that order.

Pope.L is represented by Mitchell-Innes & Nash, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, University of Chicago, Chicago

This lecture is made possible by the Davis Family Endowed Fund in Art.

Presented by the City of Eugene, Eugene Contemporary Art & the Center for Art Research (CFAR) at the University of Oregon.

The Movement Lab explores the generative capacities of sense perception, interpersonal relationships, and group dynamics. Movement is thought of in broad terms as gestures of cognition and communication. Together we are looking to understand something about touch, kinesthetic perception, and social choreography, with each other and our lived experiences as resources. How can we move differently by paying attention to our senses?

The workshop will be facilitated by video and performance artist Agnese Cebere. Two hours long, it consists of task-based exercises inspired by a range of somatic practices, and discussion among the participants. No experience is necessary and anyone can participate. Please note: This event will be recorded for future use by the artist. The Movement Lab was developed by Agnese Cebere and dance artist and scholar Sasha Portyannikova in conjunction with the Media Studies course Urban Tactics and Performance taught by Nitin Sawhney at The New School in Spring 2018.
