Tangent: Senior Studio Art Majors 2021

April 17 – May 15, 2021

Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery

Each spring, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art features the work of senior studio art majors at Willamette University. The exhibition represents the culmination of their four years at Willamette.

The exhibition is characterized by a variety of styles and approaches and includes handmade dolls, jewelry, drawings, sculptures, prints, video, and mixed media installations. As a special feature, the current group of seniors will discuss their work as part of two online Tuesday Gallery Talks during the exhibition.

This year’s senior art students include:

  • Emma Rose Callahan Burgess (Santa Rosa, CA)
  • Mason Feldtkeller (Sedona, AZ)
  • Sarah Grahn (Woodland, CA)
  • Kara “Efflorescence” Lantz (Cornelius, OR)
  • Elizabeth Larson (Bend, OR)
  • Lily O'Brien (Portland, OR)
  • Emma Stocker (Galisteo, NM)
  • Wolfgang W. Widrig (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Bailey Joell Wright (Austin, TX)

Each spring, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University, pairs the annual senior studio art majors exhibition with a small solo exhibition of recent work by one of the faculty members in the art department at Willamette University. The purpose of the exhibitions are to demonstrate the continuing connection and relationship between student and faculty research. 

This year’s senior studio art majors exhibition is paired with the faculty exhibition, Cayla Skillin-Brauchle: Locating, which focuses on recent works by Assistant Professor Cayla Skillin-Brauchle (American, born 1984).
