The PSU MFA Studio Lecture Series brings together artists from different disciplines to explore the subjects of their own work before a live audience. Lectures are FREE and open to the public. This week esteemed artist Richard Jackson will be talking.

Based in Los Angeles since the early 1970s, Jackson, with his wildly inventive & exuberant "action" paintings, has expanded the definition and practice of painting more than any other contemporary figure. Exhibited widely internationally and nationally, his paintings are slightly performative, sculptural, and concern themselves with the art of everyday experience.

Ampersand is pleased to present Some Women, an exhibition of new drawings by Bay Area artist Jason Brinkerhoff. Brinkerhoff represents the figure of a collector as artist, one who does not simply accumulate, but deliberately chooses with the intent of forming a collection that stands as a whole. His drawings engage the source material he celebrates, employing collage, painting & simple line work in diverse mediums.

Brinkerhoff's new drawings are a continuation of his study of the female form. Ever evolving in his practice, he presents here a set of drawings that are abstracted variants of women wrestlers & fighters sourced from the theatrics of old pinup photos & video stills from Olympic wrestling matches on YouTube. A second set of 12 drawings presents isolated head fragments that coincide with HEAD FAKE, the small edition book that we have designed & published to coincide with the exhibition. HEAD FAKE is a conceptual taxonomy of source material that functions in Brinkerhoff's studio as input to the drawing processes at hand. The book is comprised of collected vintage photos, newspaper clippings, fashion spreads & video stills, which Brinkerhoff refers to as objects.

The Longest Line opens at One Grand Gallery on Friday. Created by the HMM Collective, this sensational and over-the-top exhibit features the longest line ever and is designed to get the audience to think about their opinions of social drug taking. Drugs vary between individuals, cultures, and jurisdiction, and the positive and negative argument of drug-use depends on the way they are used or misused.
