The Archer Gallery presents Alight
, an exhibition of works on paper by Aili Schmeltz and Laura Vandenberg. "Schmeltz's drawings are part of La Fuente de la Vida
, an international collaborative art project centering around the Fountain of Life in Monterrey, Mexico. These drawings tell the story of the fountain's fall from grace in the eyes of the city, and the fictional journey of the fountain's characters as they search for a new place for their monument and home...Vandenburgh's paper works are fictional lands that develop and unfold throughout her working process. Hinting at landmasses, pools, and mountain ranges, Vandenburgh created her works as if they were actual places developing, without a predetermined plan and with each aspect leading into the next unexpected creation." The exhibition is on view February 16 - March 14, 2010.

Melody Owen, "the weight of a tiny bird," video installation
Melody Owen's So Close to the Glass and Shivering
is opening this weekend in the main area at the Marylhurst Art Gym. For this exhibition, Owen uses drawing, video and sculpture as "quiet ruminations on whales and exploration...she is interested in the records that explorers keep and in making her own."

Paula Rebsom's If We Lived Here
is opening in Gallery 2 of the Art Gym: "For If We Lived Here, Rebsom, who lives in Portland, Oregon, but who was raised in western North Dakota, has devised a project that uses technology to tie one place to another. Late last summer, the artist returned to North Dakota to begin work on her first permanent outdoor installation. She built a 16-foot high and 40-foot long 'billboard-like replica' of her grandparents' original homestead. In December, she went back to film and outfit the site with recording equipment. Those recordings will be used for presentation and projection in The Art Gym's Gallery 2."
