Melody Owen, the weight of a tiny bird

Two new exhibitions open at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University on Sunday, February 21 with a reception for the artists from 3 to 5 PM. The Art Gym’s main space features So Close to the Glass and Shivering by Melody Owen. In Gallery 2, Paula Rebsom will present If We Lived Here. Both exhibitions continue through April 9, 2010.

From the press release:

Both exhibitions address human and animal interactions, migration and travel. Owen uses drawing, video and sculpture as “quiet ruminations on whales and exploration.” Paula Rebsom built a house-like structure and set up an observation station on her family’s abandoned farm in rural North Dakota. Images of the structure, landscape and the birds and animals that frequent the site will be recorded or broadcast live from North Dakota and projected in The Art Gym’s Gallery 2 over the course of the exhibition.

The Art Gym is on the third floor of the B.P. John Administration Building at Marylhurst University, which is located one mile south of Lake Oswego on Highway 43.
