Hybrid Gallery Presents Little Gods Through December 11
November 05, 2009
An exhibition of moving image installations opened recently at The Hybrid Gallery, a Gerding Edlen Project with Pacific Northwest College of Art, activating the space during the opening of the new “Indigo @ Twelve | West”:http://www.indigo12west.com/ building in Southwest Portland, Oregon.
Thousands of visitors attended the opening of the building, and had the opportunity to view dynamic work selected from the College’s July 2009 “Boundary Crossings: An Institute in Contemporary Animated Arts” program.
Little Gods is an investigation into the magic of objects, concepts and notions that we invest with special meaning: talismans and charms, lucky articles, measurements, numbers, clocks, calendars, schedules and routines. From what we know there are no real singularities in the universe. Let us therefore bring back the little gods.
Featured PNCA artists: Chris Bodven, Katie Harral, Liz Harris, Chad Hinman, Shelley Jordon, Tabitha Knight, Alison Reiko Loader, Joey Lusterman, Akira Nakamura, Jeffrey Richardson, Jessie Weitzel and Cecilia Westerberg.
Little Gods was a studio co-taught by Paul Vester, Experimental Animation Program Co-Director, “CalArts”:http://calarts.edu/film/video/programs/experimentalanimation, and Rose Bond, faculty member, “PNCA Intermedia Department”:http://www.pnca.willamette.edu/programs/bfa/majors/intermedia.php, and Director of Boundary Crossings: An Institute in Contemporary Animated Arts during the summer institute.
The current exhibition is open to the public 6–8 p.m., Thursdays; and 5–8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through December 11.

Schnitzer family's $2M gift to support Willamette University/Pacific Northwest College of Art merger
Willamette will launch a search soon to retain a nationally recognized educator and leader in art and design to serve as PNCA’s new dean. This $2 million gift from the late Arlene Schnitzer will create the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer PNCA Dean’s Initiative Fund, and provide the new PNCA Dean with resources to test new initiatives, facilitate collaboration between the PNCA and Willamette faculties, and more.
