Event Image Exhibition | Alexandra Opie: Echo | April 18 - May 17, 2015
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace. Beginners are most welcome!

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Diane Trevett offers Salem Chamber Orchestra 30th Anniversary Commemorative Painting

Diane Trevett ~ Calla Studio Fine Art

Diane's approach to drawing and painting comes from her emotional and spiritual response to the subject.  Flowers, fruit, sea shells, and land forms inspire her. She uses a scientific and illustrative approach to flower and plant study as in botanical illustration. However, she departs from that style in a contemporary and stylized way.
She works in a spacious studio/gallery adjacent to her home in Salem, Oregon, called “Calla Studio”. It is named after the calla lily, a flower with unique form and color that has been a long-time inspiration. This flower became a motif of her idol, Georgia O’Keeffe.
The subject of this painting for the SCO is a French horn with a morning glory flower.  
Diane explains: “I enjoy combining flowers or plants and musical instruments, where one morphs into the other,  emphasizing their common attributes of shape, form and structure”.
Diane received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon University in 1991, with a focus on drawing and painting.   Since then she has worked in arts management and is currently employed as an administrative assistant in the music department at Willamette University.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Diane Trevett offers Salem Chamber Orchestra 30th Anniversary Commemorative Painting

Diane Trevett ~ Calla Studio Fine Art

Diane's approach to drawing and painting comes from her emotional and spiritual response to the subject.  Flowers, fruit, sea shells, and land forms inspire her. She uses a scientific and illustrative approach to flower and plant study as in botanical illustration. However, she departs from that style in a contemporary and stylized way.
She works in a spacious studio/gallery adjacent to her home in Salem, Oregon, called “Calla Studio”. It is named after the calla lily, a flower with unique form and color that has been a long-time inspiration. This flower became a motif of her idol, Georgia O’Keeffe.
The subject of this painting for the SCO is a French horn with a morning glory flower.  
Diane explains: “I enjoy combining flowers or plants and musical instruments, where one morphs into the other,  emphasizing their common attributes of shape, form and structure”.
Diane received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon University in 1991, with a focus on drawing and painting.   Since then she has worked in arts management and is currently employed as an administrative assistant in the music department at Willamette University.
