Visual Arts, Fall Arts

John Holmgren

When: Mondays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 29 2016

For its second art exhibition of the current school year, Whitworth hosts award-winning mixed media artist John Holmgren, a Western Washington-born artist whose work examines the meaning of places, the environment, time and memory. Travels each summer during his youth still have heavy influence on Holmgren’s artistic vision, through which he explores “how personal history and memory are tied to place… like memory, photographs over time are never able to fully express the experience they represent.” Holmgren explores these ideas by melding his photos into mixed media, ephemera collages that evoke sentiments of nostalgia and contrast the industrial, built environment with natural settings.

Tue, Nov. 10 through Jan. 29, 2016; opening reception Tue, Nov. 10, at 5 pm • Free and open to the public • Bryan Oliver Gallery, Whitworth University • 300 W. Hawthorne • whitworth.edu • 777-3258
