Q&A With Visiting Artist Kristin Cammermeyer

Kristin Cammermeyer is the type of artist who likes to think outside the box—or rather, outside the limiting four sides of a canvas. In fact, the Los Angeles-based artist treats the entire studio as her canvas, using organic, sustainable materials on location to make new site-specific installations. Many of Cammermeyer’s works incorporate stop motion animation, […]

How to Become a Not-Starving Artist

‘Imagining The World’ Through a Photo Lens

It was clear to Joy Durkin that the Ganges River was a holy place. People along its banks were doing religious spiritual work by the water and in temples. She sat in a boat, cutting through India by way of the great river, and when her guide looked off into the distance, she snapped a […]

Digital Design Students Renovate Vachon

Seattle University’s digital design students are used to editing and re-editing their artwork—but not to this extent.

Upon the shelves surrounding me in the Henry Art Gallery, neatly placed stacks of newsprint paper sit side-by-side. Each stack contains a different short passage.

Metamorphosis Caught On Film In New Exhibit

“I love her,” is something people usually say about their friends, family members and sweethearts. But a new photo exhibit on campus proposes that it is also something people should say about themselves. Seattle University juniors Monica Lloyd and Kathy Rizzo met during their freshman year. Lloyd was one of the first people with whom […]

Out Of The Studio, Into The Gallery

It’s an artist’s dream: make whatever you want. There are no rules. And your work will be displayed in a professional gallery. Professor Francisco Guerrero’s Advanced Studio Course challenges visual arts students to take what they’ve learned in their prerequisite art classes and create their own body of work. But with a short turnaround of […]

Visual Artist Strives To Capture The Invisible

“I have a mantra that all art is sacred,” says artist Emily Ann Pothast. “If you’re looking at something and you can’t figure out whether or not it’s sacred, then I wouldn’t call it art.” Pothast’s new multimedia art exhibit, “Drawing God from Direct Observation,” explores the human creative practice as a function of spirituality […]

Yours In Art Is Yours Once Again

“A picture is worth a thousand words,” or so the adage goes. You could, however, opt for a poem—Yours in Art would love to see either.
