The EMU Visual Arts Team welcomes UO Pre-Planning, Public Policy, and Management student Sergio B. Sanchez to the EMU Adell McMIllan Gallery. Sergio's "Santanero y Mexicano" exhibit will be on-view January through mid-February 2019 in the gallery.

Artist bio and statement:

Born in Anaheim, Sergio was raised in the city of Santa Ana, California, learning how to make the best of what he had and one of the things he picked up quickly was art. He started with block letters doing graffiti and shifted to more complex 3D pieces during elementary and middle school, and then to more old school and freestyle lettering in high school. Now, he has shifted into not only lettering, but also drawing out more detailed pieces to reflect on the good times and bad times of the Chicano lifestyle: the pride, the struggle, the love, the pain, and everything in-between.

“I never thought that art would take me this far or that I would even have the opportunity to have my own gallery one day because of my past with art. My middle school principle and vice-principle told me that I “would never make it with this kind of art” and to think about “taking some real art classes” and proceeded to suspend me for having sharpies and looking up graffiti on the school computers. No, I never took those “real art classes” because my art comes from the streets, not a classroom, and that’s real. That made me think that I never really wanted to do anything with art besides have it as a hobby until now. Realizing this, has made my art grow immensely in less than a year. I would like to take this back to my community and work with kids who have a passion for art, do murals around my city and other cities, create art festivals because street art, specifically Chicano Art, is something rich and crazy. This exhibition is named “Santanero y Mexicano” because of its dedication to my city, my culture, and the lifestyle of growing up as a Chicano in the city of Santa Ana in Southern Cali.”

The EMU Visual Arts Team welcomes UO alumnus Tyler Young to the Aperture Gallery.

Tyler completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies in the summer of '18. Tyler's "Hiking to The Enchantments, Washington" exhibit will be on-view through mid-January in the gallery.

Artist's statement: Hiking to The Enchantments, Washington

Selfishly cutting class for a cause greater than myself. I was involved in a campaign with the Cascadia Action Network, we wanted the REI Cooperative and outdoor brand to divest their money from the fossil fuel industry. We proposed a ballot measure concerning divestment to the board of directors at their annual meeting, we took photos, made videos, and held protests, even started a petition that gained thousands of signatures all with the help of a friendly lawyer. As members of the Cooperative, and outdoor enthusiasts, REI took us seriously. They knew we were their customer base, and maybe they were appeasing, or maybe they were genuinely interested in hearing our ideas and best practices of divestment. Either way, they invited us to come up to their flagship store in Seattle, all expenses paid. Instead of flying, we decided to drive an electric vehicle. We met with their CFO, Head of Marketing, and HR Lawyer, and talked about how corporate divestment can shift the environmental movement in a positive and ethical way. We also kindly asked them to stop green-washing their branding. They were receptive to our ideas, and maybe even considered using their money for good instead of helping fund the fossil fuel industry, I wouldn’t know. The meeting went well, but we were sure to take an extra day for a hike in The Enchantments to Lake Colchuck, Washington before we made our way back to Eugene. We love the outdoors, and we hope to remain members for life. 

Enjoy.
