The College of the Redwoods annual Juried Student Exhibition will be on exhibit from April 17 to May 3, with a public reception and awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 17 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Each spring semester, this culminating exhibition features outstanding examples of student work in ceramics, photography, jewelry and small metals, sculpture, painting, watercolor and drawing, and also affords the campus and local community an opportunity to view and purchase artwork by some of our local region’s most promising emerging artists.
The juror for this year’s exhibition is Stephen Nachtigall, Assistant Professor of Digital Arts at Humboldt State University. The CR Art Department will be hosting a free public lecture by Professor Nachtigall on Tuesday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m. in the Creative Arts Building, Room 139.
Stephen Nachtigall, originally from Calgary, Canada, is a visual artist working in Arcata, California. He has exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, Scotland and Germany. He received a BFA in Sculpture from the Alberta College of Art + Design and an MFA from the University of Oregon. His work considers the way in which we relate to things like plants from a mediated perspective, utilizing video, animation, sculptural installation and 2D work to ultimately seek an equitable relationship between human and non-human.
