Until Now - Student Technicians Exhibit, May 4-21

The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present Until Now, an exhibition featuring sculptor Amelia Beiderwell and ceramic artist Stacy Jo Scott, from May 4 through 21. There will be a lecture and reception on Thursday, May 14 at 3 p.m. in the gallery.

When asked what she creates within her work, Beiderwell says, "making creates language within the relationship of form and its audience by capturing a moment and suspending it in time."

Scott describes her work as "both functional and sculptural ceramic practice." She explores layers of meaning and narrative. "I relate imagery though surface drawings from my own experience in the iconic and disjointed schema of memory or dream."

The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is located in building 11 on main campus, 4000 E. 30th Avenue. For more information call the Art and Applied Design Department at (541) 463-5409

Copper Engraving - Printmaking Workshop - May 9-10

Printmaker John Salang will present a Copper Engraving Printmaking Workshop, May 9-10, in the LCC Printmaking Studio.

John Saling began studying printmaking in 1964 and has focused on engravings for the last 30 years. John’s work reflects his dramatic and structural use of line. Textures spring from direct work on the plate. "Each edition that I produce reflects a chosen engraving method, a type and combination of lines, and a specific size, all part of the considered vocabulary for a particular image." He is a graduate of Cornish School of Allied Arts in Seattle, WA., and has attended The Society of Arts and Crafts in Detroit, MI., and Pratt Graphic Art Center in New York City.

In this workshop John will demonstrate engraving, show original prints in a number of styles, and present a condensed history of the technique. We will review the use of engraving tools. Burins will be sized to individual users and sharpened in preparation to engrave on copper plates. This class will prepare students to create and develop their own engravings. During the workshop, students will design, create and print their own engraving from a copper plate.

The workshop will be held on May 9-10, 9:00 am -4:00 pm, in the Printmaking Studio, Building 10, Room 200 on the LCC main campus, 4000 East 30th Avenue, Eugene, OR 97405. The cost is $60 for LCC students and staff, $90 for community members, with a $30 materials fee.

Scholarships are available sponsored by the Canaga-Lawrence Scholarship.

The registration deadline is May 1. For more information about the workshop and scholarship and to register contact Susan Lowdermilk at 541-463-5413 or lowdermilks@
