EMU Visual Arts Team is pleased to welcome Anne Margratten to the EMU Adell McMillan Gallery. Anne's unique exhibit will be on view starting February 15th in the gallery.

Artist statement and bio:

"To envelop something completely requires a kind of accidental reciprocity. As we are bound or swaddled, we impress our form into the thing that engulfs us. Even the passive presence exerts some agency."

In her exhibition, Envelop, Anne Magratten presents three bodies of work comprised of painted folding screens, queer still life paintings, and farm to table drawings. Each group engages and rejects key norms of space, intimacy, and monetary transactions. Within her series Gathered Horizons painted screens divide the physical space of the room while presenting the visual spaces of landscape and abstraction. In her series of still life paintings How Queer, Dear, she toys with visual conundrums specific to modern sexuality, gender, reproduction, and queer identity. Employing humor and formalism she cloaks the taboo in the subtle. In You Pick, drawings are dispersed into the economy using the model of the Oregon farm & flower stand. Trust, empowerment through self-service, and the elimination of interposing parties mimic the core components of the Northwest grassroots economy. 

All works are intended to question and open the boundaries between art and the decorative. Anne is particularly interested in the concept of ownership and in the way materials, location, gender, and class shape the value of art objects.

Anne Magratten is a graduate of Mills College and received her MFA in Studio Art at The University of Oregon in 2015. She is an Instructor of Painting and Drawing at Linn Benton Community College. Additionally, she offers college drawing and painting courses within Oregon prisons. She is a member of the Eugene based artist collective Tropical Contemporary. Additional aspects of her art practice can be seen on her website http://www.annemagratten.com and the website of the collective https://www.tropicalcontemporary.space.

Creating the formula for a successful rock act in Eugene is a tricky proposition; a little too much of one ingredient, a bit not enough of another, and you could have a monster on your hands!

For over 10 years Hyding Jekyll has been mixing musical ingredients in the Willamette Valley.  A combination of the band's influences and its member’s experiences, the concoction moves from funk laden riffs to spacey openings.  The songs tell a story from power to failure; humanity at it's best to worst. The music shapes the stories the band has been working on for the last 10 years.

FREE Hip Hop Concert & Food with OLMECA!

The BEseries and the School of Music and Dance is honored to host OLMECA! Olmeca is a Hip-Hop artist, producer, activist and scholar who has been featured on BBC London, Huffington Post, NPR, KEXP Seattle, URB Magazine, Democracy Now and CNN Latino. His work has been featured on various documentaries including PBS “Independent Lens”, and “Two Americans,” a documentary about the immigration issues in Arizona.  He has written music for tv shows including “Sons of Anarchy,” “CHANCE” on HULU, and new series, “The Mayans” on FX. Olmeca grew up in the barrios of L.A. and Mexico, a reality that brewed his blending of music genres and cultural sensitivity.  His bilingual music has earned him respect and praises in both English and Spanish news outlets and genres (Hip-Hop and Latin Alternative). Olmeca has collaborated with Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), Latin Alternative band, Ozomatli, Hip-Hop legend, Ras Kass, and Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver).  Olmeca has toured Canada, Latin America and Europe and has helped spawn a new trend of bilingual Hip-hop. While everyday people respect his lyrical content, music connoisseurs value the production, and educators utilize Olmeca’s music in their classrooms. This, along with his social commentary and community efforts makes Olmeca a stand-alone artist in how he can intersect various identities and demographics. It is also for this reason that he is not only a gifted performing artist, but a university lecturer doing guest lectures, residencies and keynote speeches in universities throughout the U.S.  His capacity to bring various campus programs, offices and academic departments together is not only unique, but also necessary.   His work has been noted by social justice dignitaries speaking alongside Dolores Huerta, Naomi Klein and many others. Join us for an amazing night of music, food, and enlightenment: BE Cultura with OLMECA.
