Creativity Vending Machine - "Art-o-Mat"

An article titled "Creativity -Vending Machine" about LCC's Art-o-Mat appeared in the September 7 issue of the Eugene Register-Guard. Written by Joel Gorthy with photographs by Collin Andrew, the article begins "Art-o-Mats, made from revamped vintage cigarette machines, dispense little doses of original art for just $5.  Oregon's first one remains at LCC."  Susan Lowdermilk brought the vending machine to Lane after seeing one on a trip to the East Coast.  LCC has hosted the Art-o-Mat since 2005; it is located next to the art gallery and Art Department office in Building 11 on Lane's main campus.  Check out the complete article at:

Mayor's Art Show

Too Much Information appeared in the September 6th issue of Eugene Register-Guard. Written by Bob Keefer, the newspaper's arts reporter, the article reviews the current Mayor's Art Show at the Jacobs Gallery.  Works of art by several LCC Art and Applied Arts faculty are in the show:  Jeff Goolsby, Dan Schmitt, Jan Halvorsen, Susan Lowdermilk, Talmadge Doyle and student Eve Takahashi.  Keefer wrote about the deep appeal of Jeff Goolsby's "Conflict Management" and about Eve Takahashi's photograph of former student Carter.  Susan Lowdermilk and Talmadge Doyle's artist book "Aviary" is "wonderful for its sheer, drop-dead gorgeous etching and perfect craftsmanship."   The complete article is available at the Register-Guard's website:  http://www.registerguard.com/web/entertainmentarts/28693088-57/art-mayor-artist-painting-statements.html.csp.
