Dayton area artist Gretchen Durst Jacobs prefers to work en plein air, or out-of-doors, unless that air happens to be cold.

 

She has faced alligators, snakes, steep ravines and other hazards to better portray the immediacy of the landscape. Her work is now on display at the Elzay Gallery of Art and the Stambaugh Studio Theatre Gallery through Nov. 14.

 

A public lecture and artist reception is planned for Friday, October 22 starting at 5p.m. in the Wilson Art Center on the campus of Ohio Northern University. The Elzay Gallery is located on Gilbert Street and is connected to the Wilson Art Center, the classroom-studio building that houses the department of art & design.

 

“Being outside for me is just incredible. It’s also uncomfortable, inconvenient and a hassle sometimes, but it’s worth it,” Jacobs said.

 

Working outdoors deepens and expands her relationship with the landscape. The work serves as a reminder of our connection with nature by providing a metaphorical lifeline to our aging planet.

 

“Growth, adaptation, rejuvenation, survival, cyclical movement and death are apparent in nature” explained Jacobs. “I see and feel these principles in the undulating creeks and rivers, and in the linear elements of the forest. I also find them hiding within chaotically entangled branches of living and dead trees. I note how closely these organic systems mirror my bodily systems and I feel a connection as I am pulled deeply into the multi-layered ecosystems of the woods and water.”

 

Conceptually, Jacobs wants to the viewer to be pulled into her work. She wants people to be reminded of their own connection to nature. She indicated that she “provides a metaphorical lifeline to our aging planet. Today, it’s easy to become removed from nature, separating ourselves from it, and limiting our experience of the natural world as something we have to go to - outside of ourselves. My artwork serves as a reminder that we are of the earth, not separate but equal.”

 

Jacobs currently is an adjunct professor of art at Wright State University where she teaches drawing, painting and color theory. She earned her BA degree from Wright State University and earned her MFA degree from the University of Cincinnati.

 

Admission to both galleries is free and open to the public, daily from noon to 5 p.m. while school is in session. The Stambaugh Studio Theatre Gallery is also open prior to events held at Ohio Northern’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts. For additional information, to schedule a tour, or to be placed on the arts exhibition mailing list, please contact the department of art & design at 419-772-2160 or art@onu.edu.

“In a Little While” Opens Ohio Northern University’s 2010 Gallery Season

 

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? These questions are examined in an upcoming exhibition titled “In a Little While” at the Elzay Gallery of Art and the Stambaugh Studio Theatre Gallery at Ohio Northern University.

 

Landscapes, juxtaposed with pop and industrial images against pastoral settings, are re-contextualized into a vivid statement of a personal quest to reveal a truthful perspective on contemporary American culture. The exhibit, by Prof. Ivan J. Fortushniak, runs from Monday, January 4 through Friday, February 19.

The work of selected Ohio Northern alumni was on exhibit during Homecoming on Saturday, October 9 at the Elzay Gallery of Art. An opening reception was also held directly after the parade (approximately 11:15a.m.).

 

The exhibit, "What Lies Ahead," was on display Oct. 1 through 11. "We planned this in conjunction with Homecoming and the department's 50th anniversary of the BA degree in art," said Melissa Eddings, professor of art and director of university galleries. The theme, Latitude: Art & Design @ 50, defines the ONU educational experience. "Our alumni demonstrate the scope and depth of thought that a liberal arts education can provide," explained Edddings.

 

This annual show features a different alumnus or a group of alumni each year. "The exhibit showcased about a dozen alumni and about 30 pieces of work," said Eddings.

 

Since the department's first Bachelor of Arts degree offered in 1961, the A&D graduates have shaped the visual world around us. "We are pleased to have had this opportunity to work with our alumni and to reconnect with many friends of the program," said Brit Rowe, chair of the art & design department.

 

Admission to the Elzay Gallery is free and open to the public, 10a.m. to 5p.m. during Homecoming Weekend and from noon to 5p.m. daily. For additional information, to schedule a tour, or to be placed on the arts exhibition mailing list, please contact the department of art & design at 419-772-2160 or art@onu.edu.

ADORNED

Exhibition: October 20th – November 21, 2014

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 30, 6– 8 PM

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10 AM – 7 PM

 

ADORNED is an exhibition that explores how we embellish our bodies to create ideas of identity, power and sexuality. Playing with scale, materials, and construction methods, as well as modes of display, these works meld a history of costume, fine arts and consumer culture to pose the question: How do the objects that surround us, from figurines to mannequins, shape our views of contemporary sculpture, crafting, and gender politics?

Dayton area artist Gretchen Durst Jacobs prefers to work en plein air, or out-of-doors, unless that air happens to be cold.

 

She has faced alligators, snakes, steep ravines and other hazards to better portray the immediacy of the landscape. Her work is now on display at the Elzay Gallery of Art and the Stambaugh Studio Theatre Gallery through Nov. 14.

“Being outside for me is just incredible. It’s also uncomfortable, inconvenient and a hassle sometimes, but it’s worth it,” Jacobs said.

 

Working outdoors deepens and expands her relationship with the landscape. The work serves as a reminder of our connection with nature by providing a metaphorical lifeline to our aging planet.

 

“Growth, adaptation, rejuvenation, survival, cyclical movement and death are apparent in nature” explained Jacobs. “I see and feel these principles in the undulating creeks and rivers, and in the linear elements of the forest. I also find them hiding within chaotically entangled branches of living and dead trees. I note how closely these organic systems mirror my bodily systems and I feel a connection as I am pulled deeply into the multi-layered ecosystems of the woods and water.”

 

Conceptually, Jacobs wants to the viewer to be pulled into her work. She wants people to be reminded of their own connection to nature. She indicated that she “provides a metaphorical lifeline to our aging planet. Today, it’s easy to become removed from nature, separating ourselves from it, and limiting our experience of the natural world as something we have to go to - outside of ourselves. My artwork serves as a reminder that we are of the earth, not separate but equal.”

 

Jacobs currently is an adjunct professor of art at Wright State University where she teaches drawing, painting and color theory. She earned her BA degree from Wright State University and earned her MFA degree from the University of Cincinnati.

 

Admission to both galleries is free and open to the public, daily from noon to 5 p.m. while school is in session.
