Aaron Coleman Exhibition

Arts/Entertainment

Aaron is an artist/printmaker who is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona. Below is a description of his work. My work has evolved into a blanket description of the apocalyptic world in which we live. Police brutality, racial discrimination, religious extremism, persecution of the LGBT communities, economic unrest, global warming, species extinction, habitat loss, holy wars, power trips and ego mania are the extremes my work addresses. Earth is a disaster area, a gigantic crime scene. My work takes on the characteristics of this global chaos. Each piece is an explosive combination of comic book pages, religious iconography and advertising which illustrates a world in ruin and the heroes and villains who occupy it.

Communities West IV

Arts/Entertainment

Communities West IV is the fourth iteration of a biennial exchange. The folio was created with the intention of building community among printmakers living in, or with unyielding ties to the Western United States. In addition to building community, we are also interested in building a survey of printmakers who identify as having ties to the west and following their development through the continued curation of the portfolio. For the 4th iteration of the folio, participants from the first three folios were asked to participate again. The original list has also been added to through suggestions from members and seeking out work at conferences and events. As such the work represented is rich and varied in technique and concept. The artists in the folio are as diverse as the work. The community is made up of veteran and emerging printers, academics and working artists.

A Celebration of Women Piano Composers: Past & Present

Arts/Entertainment

This unique piano concert will feature works written by women from 1800 through present, performed by Elzbieta Bilicka, Emily Ezola, Mayumi Matzen, Kevin Olson and new piano faculty member Cahill Smith. The evening will include the world premier of a piece for two-pianos written by Wynn-Anne Rossi, music that was commissioned especially for the USU Year of the Woman. Wynn-Anne Rossi herself will be at the concert to introduce the piece and talk to the audience about her creative process.

Selected music will be illustrated by artist Chuck Landvatter who will be positioned on stage with the musicians. His artwork will be projected for the audience to see come to life in real time as the music is being performed. If that isn’t exciting enough, sculptors Ryoichi Suzuki and Myles Howell will also be presenting new pieces created especially for this concert experience. The sculptures will be positioned on stage and the audience will have a chance to see the pieces up close during the sculpture walk at intermission. Illustrations and sculptures will be auctioned following the concert and a portion of the proceeds will go towards piano area scholarships.
