Layered Perspectives

Exhibit Dates: November 2-30, 2017
Opening Reception: November 2, 2017 | 5:30-7:30 p.m.

In this multiple exposure photography series, UCO New Media Faculty, David Webber, explores the idea of “making something out of nothing” in his photographs inspired by Alred Stieglitz’s cloud series, Equivalents. These photographs start with images from New Orleans, and through transformation, become hybrid forms, confusing boundaries of their reference. As viewers, we are challenged to look at this iconic cityscape from multiple and layered perspectives, like concrete clouds, and consider how the history of a city – it’s structure, population, and even tragedy – shapes our overall perception of place. . . .  read more

Synthesis (Re)Action: Aesthetics in the Arts and Sciences

Exhibit Dates: October 5-26, 2017
Opening Reception: October 5, 2017 | 5:30-7:30 p.m.

A synthesis reaction is a chemical reaction in which two or more simple substances combine to form a more complex product. In UCO Art faculty Elizabeth Brown’s work, we see the combination of the visual arts and sciences, the creation of works that mirror elements of existing organic life and combine synthetic and non-traditional materials to create a tension between the definable and the indefinable. . . .  read more

Alchemy

Exhibit Dates: August 27-September 17, 2015
Opening Reception: August 27, 2015 | 4-7 p.m.

Alchemy is defined as a seemingly magical process of transformation. This exhibition features the work of current faculty and recent alumni of the University of Central Oklahoma’s Art Department in conjunction with UCO’s 125th anniversary. Each faculty member was given the opportunity to choose an alumnus to pair with for this exhibition. These works of art highlight the breadth of technical skills, creativity, materials and processes that each artist uniquely applies to create a masterful piece. We hope this exhibition demonstrates our commitment to support student work, celebrate the accomplishments of our alumni and recognize each faculty member’s lifelong commitment to inspire new generations of makers. . . .  read more
