As an art student at university (and through my jobs in four galleries) I seem to have amassed a hefty collection of gallery exhibit cards. They come in various sizes and formats and some of them are impressive miniature artworks worthy of framing. I once put several on a wall in an artistic pattern but, sadly, the poster putty I used eventually failed. One by one, day by day, they fluttered to the floor until I gave up and removed them all. Someday I will try again with another method. Here are the cards I made for my exhibits and a few from my favourites by other artists.
March 2010 for Gallery Production
class at WOU. I chose to
place my work in the Allegro
Cafe coffee shop in Werner
Student Center. The
theme of my artwork was
folklore which began
when I was reading Irish,
German, and Russian folk-tales.
Declaration! - my first solo exhibit was with
Silverton Arts Association's
Borland Gallery in July 2008.
imaginaria was my Senior Thesis exhibit
May 2011. I chose to display in the
Presidents Hall in the Administration building.
There was less exposure there than
in other locations but I felt it was a good match.
Postcard for Silverton Arts Association's Fine Art Festival 2012. The artist's name is Tonya Smithburg.
Other Worlds: The Art was shown at WOU's
Cannon Gallery Jan-Feb 2013.
The exhibit was curated by Brandon Cline-Jones
who assembled works by some of the finest
illustrators in North America. He also designed the card.
