Event Image Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Over the centuries, African potters have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition will feature 17 ceramic vessels from the Keith Achepohl collection of Eugene, Oregon.

All Day

Through Sunday, Jan. 29
Museum — Print Study Center

Louis Bunce (1907-1983) was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and ‘50s, and his silkscreen prints helped transform what had been a means to produce advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by Roger Hull, professor emeritus and senior faculty curator, the exhibition features a range of prints and works on paper. Hull presents a gallery talk Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m.
