Schneider Museum of Art Opens Fall Exhibitions
Mel Prest: The Golden Hour and Sensate Objects
(Ashland, OR) — Southern Oregon University’s Schneider Museum of Art (SMA) reopens Thursday, October 6 at 5 p.m. with two new exhibitions featuring contemporary abstract art titled, Mel Prest: The Golden Hour and Sensate ObjectsSMA Executive Director Scott Malbaurn shared, “Beyond making their personal artwork, artists have been known for wearing many creative 'arts-worker' hats. This can span from running arts organizations, curating exhibitions, and publishing art writing. Mel Prest is such an artist. With international exhibitions of both her personal abstract paintings and curated projects, we are delighted to share Prest's work in a solo exhibition in our Main gallery alongside her curated group exhibition in our Heiter and Treehaven galleries.” He continued, “Prest and the invited artists share a passion for abstraction. The work is sensuous and employs rich textures and materiality that ranges from hand-hewn to nearly industrial finishes”. Please join us to learn more about these creative processes and hear from Prest as well as some of the thirteen artists in her curated group exhibition."
An opening reception will take place Thursday, October 6 from 5 to 7p.m. Mel Prest and several other participating artists will be in attendance. Music in the Museum’s courtyard will be provided by local favorites The Brothers Reed and wine will be provided by RoxyAnn Winery. The opening reception is free and open to the public. The Museum will be closed on Saturday, October 8 for a private event.
Masterworks on Loan will also be on display in the Entry Gallery. Museum hours will be Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is always free, but a $5 donation is suggested.
