ETC" is not a theme per se; the works in this exhibition were chosen based on their intrinsic virtues and ability to compliment one another.

Seeing the work together in a new context, I was especially drawn to the ways in which materials served as a motivating factor. Much of the work challenges my notions of what certain materials are, what they do, and what they can become.

Art to Live By, March 26th - April 7th in the Dodge Painting Gallery

Art to Live By is an exhibition that explores art as a context for life. Works within this exhibition are made for particular events or to serve specific functions; such as, a painting by which to love someone, a photo near which to break up with someone, an object by which to eat breakfast. These works provide an opposition to art as objects to be visited in an institution. 

Critiques with Susanna Coffey

Painting Department Seniors Juliana Lynn, Cristina Muñiz, Amy Erickson, Katherine Koch, Mary Braun and Elizabeth Howe were invited to critique with visiting artist, Susanna Coffey. 

Susanna Coffey is the F.H. Sellers Professor in Painting at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

CALL FOR WORK:

ART TO LIVE BY

This exhibition, curated by Professor Julie Farstad in the Dodge Painting Gallery is for all students and all media.

 The concept of this show is that art is a context for life, not just an object to visit in an institution. The works shown in this exhibition will be made for particular events, ie. a painting by which to love someone, a photo near which to break up with someone, an object by which to eat breakfast. The title of the piece should also indicate the context for the piece.

 The exhibition opens March 24 and closes April 7th. Work is due in the Dodge Painting gallery by Friday, March 21st by 2:30 pm.
