Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries

 

SENESCENCE
a solo show by Sagan Newham
April 14 - 18, 2014
Reception: Friday, April 18, 6:00 pm
East Gallery

Senescence is a solo show by Purdue's MFA Candidate (Drawing and Painting) Sagan Newham.  
The inevitable decay and aging of the human form interests Newham. Skin exposes a visual record and wearing of life. Thinning and sagging skin displays evidence of bruising, scarring, wrinkling, mistreatment, and infection.  Newham's  work examines these irrefutable events and communicates the conflict of either de-aging the body or succumbing to the deterioration.

Please join us on Friday, April 18th, at 6:00 pm for the closing reception. Refreshments will be provided. Please note: A guest lecture by artist Matthew Woodward will precede this reception. The talk is scheduled for 5:30 pm in B157, Pao Hall.


PUBLIC BY DEFAULT
a solo show by Paul McCormick
April 14 - 18, 2014
Reception: Friday, April 18, 6:00 pm
West Gallery

Public by Default is a solo show by Purdue's MFA Candidate (Electronic and Time-Based Media) Paul McCormick.  
With the advent of digital technologies, the act of people watching has evolved. The stage has expanded from cement sidewalks to a digital playground of Facebook newsfeeds, Twitterstreams, and Google hangouts—McCormick's work chronicles the mingling of digital and physical self-representation. 

Please join us on Friday, April 18th at 6 pm for the closing reception. Refreshments will be provided. Please note: A guest lecture by artist Matthew Woodward will precede this reception. Woodward's talk has been scheduled for 5:30 pm in B157, Pao Hall.

The Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries are free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm, and Thursdays 10 am to 7 pm.

About the Galleries

The Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries, along with the Purdue Galleries, provide a vital component to the cultural life at Purdue University and its surrounding community.  The Rueff Galleries have the unique perspective of being a teaching and research space for students and faculty of the Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts at Purdue. Housed in Pao Hall on campus, the Rueff Galleries offer exhibits and special events that speak directly to its mission of serving the students and faculty, while also expressing perspectives that are national and international in scope. The Rueff Galleries are named after Patti and Rusty Rueff, who were the benefactors instrumental in providing funding necessary to establish the galleries for the Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts.

The Patti and Rusty Rueff Galleries regularly show over a dozen exhibitions each semester. Our exhibition schedule for the current term is available under Current Exhibition Schedule. Past exhibition schedules can be viewed under Past Exhibitions.
