Amy Sacksteder: Easement

Preview image 3

Faculty member Amy Sacksteder's recent work is currently on view at Alma College's Flora Kirsch Beck Gallery through Thursday, March 16. The exhibition features work on paper, paintings, and a glass and bronze wall installation that was fabricated with the help of EMU alumni Illana Houten, Jessica Tenbusch, and Elize Jekabson.

From Alma College's press release:

The exhibition, titled “Easement,” plays off of the two potentially contradictory definitions of the term — to allay fears and the right to use or gain access to someone else’s property for a specific purpose.

“In the wake of the election, inauguration, Dakota Access Pipeline turmoil and climate change, land rights have been very much on my mind,” says Sacksteder.

Among the works to be showcased are portions of the series “Cairn” and “Fear Souvenirs.” The latter includes works from 2016 and 2017.

The exhibition will culminate in a closing exhibition and 7:30 p.m. artist lecture on March 16, 2017.

Emergent Effect

Emergent Effect, curated by EMU alumni and the founders of Ypsi Alloy Studios, highlights the intersecting work and common voice of 16 of the studio's resident artists.

Exhibition curators Ilana Houten, Elize Jekabson, and Jessica Tenbusch launched Ypsi Alloy Studios in 2015 in response to decreasing artist studio workspaces throughout the region. Since then, the studio has been growing. Emergent Effect showcases the work of the studio's individual artists and highlights shared meaning and shared ideas through the artwork of artists who work across from each other.

Please join us at the opening reception, which is free to the public, on January 13, 6:00pm - 9:00pm.
