Claire Jones: A Perception of Failure

February 22 - March 22, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 22, 4:30-6:30pm

Claire’s work explores the idea that failure is partly about perception. In this unique exhibit, Claire displays a statement next to each piece explaining why it failed to meet her original objective. The viewer can then include this in their analysis and see if it alters their opinion of the piece. Does learning about something the artist considers an imperfection change what they think about the piece? This concept, of course, can apply to more than just art. The intent of the exhibit is to encourage students to think about their own experiences and ideas about failure.

Claire explains, “Judgment, both self and social, real and perceived, is something which we all have to deal with on a regular basis. By putting the artist’s judgmental comment next to each piece the viewer will be able to contrast their viewpoint with that of the artist’s.”

The show will feature a selection of whimsical, brightly colored, self-supporting sculptures created with a sewing machine.

Claire holds a Certificate in Design Level III from City and Guilds of London, and several certificates from the Gail Harker Creative Studies Center including Experimental Research for Advanced Design, Advanced Experimental Stitch, and Design and Experimental Machine Stitch.

Yelena Roslaya: Touch the Sound

April 5 - May 3, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 5, 4:30-6:30pm

Yelena’s work is inspired by the way humans perceive and process sound. She designed this exhibit to educate viewers about hearing-motion synesthesia. The exhibit will include an installation of sculptures that function as drums. As viewers interact with each sculpture drum, a projection of different shapes and colors will appear on a wall or digital screen, based on Yelena’s personal hearing-motion synesthesia experiences and research. The show is meant to be interactive and viewers are encouraged to interact with the pieces.

Yelena received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics from the Oregon College of Art and Craft (OCAC).
