Exhibit by Allison Schukis
Allison is an artist living and studying in Eugene, Oregon. She is currently pursuing a BFA in Art and a BA in Art History at the Robert D. Clark Honors College (University of Oregon). She works mainly in 2 dimensions, exhibiting favoritism toward analogue photography, but also explores performance and installation in her work. Her current work explores her personal relationship with trauma and asserting authorship in the self portrait. She has worked weekly with her mentor, Gregory Geiger, since beginning college. Allison has exhibited locally as well as in shows in New York, Washington D.C., and San Francisco.

When it comes to compassion, a photograph of a single suffering person can draw a gut reaction to help. When the numbers of people suffering keep rising, however, such as the death count in Syria's long civil war, the "arithmetic of compassion" kicks in, says UO psychologist Paul Slovic. One plus one no longer adds up to two. Slovic will address that issue and provide a path to help us step through the psychological minefield of doubt that clouds our desire to try to make a difference when a crisis becomes seemingly too overwhelming.
"Soft Structures" is an exhibition of experimental and advanced weaving work created by students enrolled in the Fiber area Winter 2017 courses "Introduction to Fiber" and "Woven Structures." From soft sculptural forms and studies in color and smell, to designed objects, blankets and yardage samples, "Soft Structures" looks simultaneously at the breadth and the depth weaving offers to students of all levels and backgrounds. The exhibition is organized in partnership with Marissa Lee Benedict (Instructor, Fiber & Sculpture, University of Oregon) and supported by Jovencio de la Paz (Assistant Professor, Curricular Head of Fibers, Department of Art).
*Located on Floor 2 of the EMU, near the ballroom. Listed as "McMillan Gallery" in elevator directory.
