MFA students hold exhibition at Troy Laundry

Updated: Oct 7, 2018

Four current OCAC students in the MFA in Craft program will be exhibiting their work at an upcoming show at the Troy Laundry Building in southeast Portland.

Anamnesis Works by Marjorie Dial, Karah Lain, Lindsay Martin, and Nathan Wilson June 6 - July 13, 2018

Place and space morph from reality and become dreamlike memories of experience. Through making, the artists create ephemera that consciously or subconsciously responds to such dreams of the everyday. Material metaphor and formal decision become paintings, sculptures, prints, and collages, that are then tools for contemplation and icons of memory. In an era of socio-political turmoil, contemplation becomes necessary to promote peace and openness.

Anamnesis, a group show by four emerging artists currently working in Portland, Oregon, presents abstract representation of experience, emotion, and place and promotes a curiosity and poetic understanding of how space and place can expand into something else entirely.

An opening reception will be open to the public and held on Friday, June 8, 2018 from 5-9 p.m. at the Troy Laundry Building 221 SE 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97214. The show will run from June 6-July 13, 2018, and is open Monday-Friday, 9-5 p.m. or by appointment.
