Whitney Courtney Nastanovich Exhibit at the MU

April 27-July 5, 2017 in the Pioneer Room

Whitney Courtney Nastanovich: Ghost Twinkles

Using a combination of prints, painting media, found papers and stitches, Courtney’s work reflects both the process and destruction of hand-recorded data. She constructs her own “research tools” using repeated shapes and patterns. As pieces are updated, they are erased by sandpaper, stitched with thread, and covered with notes and visual images. In the age of digital media that can be erased with one swipe, Courtney holds on to charts, graphs and maps - processes of past data collection that have been sacrificed for modern clarity.

Reception May 19 at 6:30pm




Michelle Holley Exhibit at the MU


May 4 - July 18, 2017 in the Gallery

Michelle Holley: So the Story Goes

Drawing from the crisp line-work of screen printing, dynamic color combinations, and wood patterns from birch cut-outs, Holly paints a dreamland of figurative surrealism. Sometimes through recognizable creatures, sometimes not, influences can be tied to childhood cartoons, daydreams, and nightmares, coming together to form a world that is on the essence of existence, but just out of reach. 

Reception May 19 at 6:30pm

The Students of Urban Leadership: Photographs by Jami Milne

Urban Leadership is committed to empowering students on their journey to becoming community-based activists. These images were taken in 2016, and students were asked to write an accompanying statement ensuring the viewers understood they had a greater story to tell.
