Mayumi Amada Grandmothers Whisper


August 19 - September 25 2015

Mayumi Amada is a Japanese artist living and working in the United States. Influenced by the spirit and ideologies of Buddhism, Amada often draws upon the philosophy of Zen to give direction to the creation of her work. Focusing on reusable and recycled materials, Amada embraces the idea of giving these materials a new life and “rebirth” through the exploration of the connection between these recycled objects and her thematic interests. Viewers are invited to reflect upon how the work addresses the circle of life and eternity in mortality.


Annual Juried Student Exhibition

Juried Show 4 15

 April 22 - May 8 2015

Open to students from all levels of undergraduate studies in studio art and graphic design, this highly competitive exhibition honors the artistic excellence achieved by our talented students while they learn and mature as artists at OSU. Each year we invite one visual arts educator and one professional graphic designer to serve as the jurors. The exhibition showcases work hand selected by the jurors. Our student artists offer the viewers a broad range of experiences through their engaging works, some demanding active participation and others requiring a more contemplative examination of content.
