“3” is the first part of the two part exhibit for the Southern Oregon SITE project at the Schneider Museum of Art on the Southern Oregon University campus, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland. The exhibit includes three artists, Avantika Bawa, Heidi Schwegler and Matt McCormick. Bawa uses the history and geography behind the formation of Emigrant Lake as the conceptual parameters from which her installation, “Flood.Control,” is created. With “Visibility Near Zero,” Schwegler modifies discarded objects in order to give them a new sense of purpose. Filmmaker McCormick’s “The Great Northwest” includes photos, ephemera and a 70-minute documentary re-creating the 3,200 mile road-trip throughout the Pacific Northwest made in 1958 by four Seattle women.
The exhibit runs through May. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Call 541-552-6245 or see sma.sou.edu.
