The EMU's Visual Arts Team is excited to welcome Oregon artist Betty LaDuke's latest exhibit, on view for the first time ever: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey. On view Summer 2019 in the Aperture Gallery. Artist Statement: Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey is an experience on both sides of the Arizona and Mexico borders. Migrants and asylum seekers, individuals and families from Mexico and Central America desperately seek the American Dream of safety and opportunity. The sketches are amplified with the text to tell their story as well as the humanitarian aid migrants receive from several nonprofit organizations, including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, No More Deaths, Kino Border Initiative, and the Border Community Alliance. The Sisters of Notre Dame in Douglas, Arizona have a presence in the border lands providing their hospotality to all who hunger, thirst, and are in need of compassion. The goal of all these groups is building bridges, not walls.  As an artist, the sketchbook is my primary means for recording first-hand expericence and events. Later, in my studio, I transporm select sketches into wood panels. These social justice panels frequently become circulating exhibitions at educational institutions and community art centers, and permanent public installations.

Murshed Summer: Student Artists in Our Galleries Artist statement My recent artwork is a series of current student and alumni artists from the University of Oregon who also exhibited art in the Erb Memorial Union's galleries. I painted portraits of them with their art; in the background of each portrait I honored their work that was exhibited in one of the EMU’s two galleries: the Adell McMillan Gallery and the Aperture Gallery.  I enjoyed the process of doing this because it was challenging due to researching what their artwork looks like, how they do it, and how they got there. They each have their own inspiring story, and it was an honor to paint them. Student and alumni artists featured in this exhibit include: Mohamed Murshed (self-portrait) and Ugo Akabike, Daniela Cardenas-Riumallo, Elexus Greene, Polly Irungu, Jasmine Jackson, Jenny Kroik, Meerah Powell, Grace Kwon, Anne Magratten, Sophie Navarro, Sergio B. Sanchez, Allison Shukis, Mary Vertulfo, and Andrew Young. Biography My name is Mohamed Murshed, I was born and raised in Sana’a, Yemen; it’s a country right below Saudi Arabia. In my childhood, while living with my parents and my little brother, the neighborhood was lively and full of friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, many of them died because of the civil wars that took place in Yemen and the Youth Revolution in 2011, especially the devastating civil war since 2015. I moved to the states in 2012 during the Arab Spring and saw a lot of my closest friends killed in front of me before I left. I consider myself one of the lucky ones able to escape war before it was too late for my family and me. I moved to Salem and then Eugene to enroll in school and find work. I found myself graduating with a Bachelors of Art and Technology and currently furthering my degree at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). I work with paint, sculpture, video, sound, programming for art, and video games. I am interested in challenging myself and in trying things that I haven’t done before. In my art, I try to bring awareness to the issues in Yemen and find help to unpack the layers of my Trauma. Instagram @mnmurshed     Facebook MoGeZe

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Diamond Lake Room

Join us for another seminar, part of the Knight Campus Seminar Series, with Elizabeth Hillman titled "New techniques for high-speed in-vivo imaging and microscopy". Elizabeth Hillman is a professor of biomedical engineering and radiology at Columbia University and a member of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Kavli Institute for Brain Science at Columbia. Hillman received her undergraduate degree in physics and PhD in medical physics and bioengineering at University College London and completed post-doctoral training at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Hillman has developed Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation (SCAPE) to enable much higher speed 3D imaging of living samples. SCAPE uses scanned light sheet illumination in a novel single-objective configuration that requires no motion of the sample or objective providing speeds up to 300 volumes per second with minimal photobleaching. Another techniques Hillman has developed is wide-field optical mapping (WFOM) which enables real-time imaging of both neuronal and hemodynamic activity across the cortex of awake, behaving mice.
