Exhibition & Lecture: Joe Hedges

Joe Hedges, painting and intermedia professor, is showing a new body of innovative intermedia art works, sponsored by the WSU New Faculty Seed Grant. These “hyper combines” include oil painting and new media objects such as flat screen televisions and tablets. These works obfuscate the physical and conceptual boundaries between media to make comments on specific challenges of the digital age. Joe Hedges will be giving an artist lecture on August 29 at 4:30pm in the Art Department.

Layers, Land, and Labor

New Work from JJ Harty, Michael Yellowbear Holloman, and Krista Brand

Layers, Land, and Labor investigates contemporary landscapes in layers revealing objects, detritus, spirit, and work.

AIM • LESS Juried Exhibition Reception Event

On view: March 4, 2019 – March 29, 2019.

There will be a performance and reception event held on Thursday, March 21 from 4:30pm-5:30pm at WSU Fine Arts Gallery 2.

WSU Department of Fine Arts presents a juried exhibition exploring ideas around the theme of aimlessness, or to “aim less,” and its relationship to space, process, and representation. Aimlessness inherently speaks to the objectless, and action without purpose. These artists interpret the qualities of what is to be aimless while considering the subversive nature of aiming less in our contemporary culture. We offer a moment to explore a parallel path while investigating expectation, spontaneity, liminality, desolation, and liberation. Featuring … » More …

Washington State University, Locker Gallery |
