Earth, Sea, Sky: Selections from the PAC
Featuring work in a variety of media, this exhibition showcases expressive, realist, and even abstract landscapes drawn from PLU’s Permanent Art Collection.
The Physicality of the Present: Ann Johnston Schuster and John McCuiston
In the work of these two artists, we see figures made vulnerable by the physical and emotional constraints placed upon them. Ann Johnston Schuster’s prints present vulnerability not as a constraint, but as a link to our humanity. John McCuiston’s sculpture moves between history and myth, ceremony and humor.
Juried Student Exhibition
Exceptional work by PLU’s student artists, chosen by guest jurors, is featured in the fall semester’s final show.
