Long before dedicating their professional lives to teaching, professors of fine art at the University of Minnesota established themselves as thoughtful, distinctive artists with their own vibrant practices. The annual faculty exhibition in the University’s Nash Gallery is a unique avenue to explore the variety of approaches, motives and aesthetics of these working artists.

The latest exhibition, Vis/A/Vis, features work from 37 faculty members of the fine art departments at University campuses in the Twin Cities, Duluth and Morris. The work spans the gamut of visual media—painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, drawing, graphic design and new media. While the exhibition provides a mere taste of the work of any individual artist, the exhibition as a whole illustrates the depth, breadth and contemporary nature of work produced by people charged with training the artists of tomorrow.

Faculty contributing work to Vis/A/Vis are:

Twin Cities: Christine Baeumler (installation), Jan Estep (photography), David Feinberg (drawing/painting), Lynn Gray (drawing/installation), James Henkel (photography), Diane Katsiaficas (drawing/painting/mixed media) Jerald Krepps (printmaking), Alexis Kuhr (drawing/painting/collage), Thomas Lane (ceramics), Lynn Lukkas (experimental/media arts), Joyce Lyon (drawing/painting), Ali Momeni (experimental/media arts), Clarence Morgan (drawing/painting), Mark Pharis (ceramics), Wayne Potratz (sculpture), Thomas Rose (sculpture), Jenny Schmid (printmaking), Andrea Stanislav (sculpture), Diane Willow (experimental/media arts) and Tetsuya Yamada (ceramics).

Duluth: Alison Aune (painting), Steve Bardolph (photography), David Bowen (sculpture), Gloria DeFilipps Brush (photography), James Klueg (ceramics), Janice Kmetz (photography), Beth Koch (graphic design), Ryuta Nakajima (painting), Robert Repinski (printmaking), Joellyn Rock (archival prints), Eun-Kyung Suh (sculpture) and Mariana Waisman (graphic design).

Jacob Lunderby at Pentimenti Gallery

Sentimental Confidence

Artist Reception: Saturday, September 11, 2010, 4 – 6 PM.

Pentimenti Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition with artist Jacob Lunderby. The show opens on September 7 and run through October 23, 2010. The artist reception will be held on Saturday, September 11 from 4 to 6 PM.

Sentimental Confidence finds Jacob Lunderby offering a take on urban landscape in ways that use photographs as a starting point. He captures street images of Philadelphia as source material. Some of the images are digitally messed with before they are transferred by brushstroke to create something wholly new, but only to a certain extent. This art covers two sequences, one that uses quiet and under-stated imagery that evokes chaos, banality and desolateness, and another that features ebullient, vibrant urbanization that emit a zealous energy. The resonance of Lunderby’s paintings is not only to be found in the use of images, but in an attempt to contemplate realities and social forces.

Jacob Lunderby received his MFA from the University of Minnesota and his BFA from Minneapolis College of Art & Design. His recent exhibitions are: Regis Center for the Arts, Minnesota, MN; Abington Art Center, Jenkintown, PA; ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) Philadelphia, PA; Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul, MN and more.
