Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection

November 5, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Study Gallery

Over the centuries, African potters have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition will feature 17 ceramic vessels from the Keith Achepohl collection of Eugene, Oregon.

Louis Bunce: Works on Paper

November 5, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Print Study Center

Louis Bunce was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and 1950s, and his silkscreen prints from this time helped transform what had been a means for mass production advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by professor emeritus and senior faculty curator Roger Hull, the exhibition will feature a range of prints and works on paper from public and private collections that highlight Bunce's accomplishments as a printmaker and is timed to overlap with a major retrospective of Bunce's work which will open in January.
