Hershberger Art Gallery
Art Alumni Exhibit | Emma Gerigscott and Nick Loewen
Emma Gerigscott received her M.F.A. from the Oregon College of Art and Craft in 2018. Before moving to Portland, she studied art at Goshen College, where she was born and raised. Emma grew up riding horses, raising ducks and goats, and currently lives with her old farm dog, Pi. She has shown work and illustrated for a variety of publications since her college graduation.
An excerpt from Emma's artist statement for this show reads, "The paintings are personal totems. They are icons of my domesticity and my wildness, balancing a loving caress and unbridled freedom. These spirit guides dance along the boundary of rules and liberty. They have strayed from home, not for a better life, but to experience the fear and burden of being free. They are guides through colorful, internal terrain, yet these landscapes bare the existence of deep scars and altered DNA of our masters."
Nick works with a broad range of media. Projects range from assemblage and sculpture to digital forms of imagery. The regular use of found objects or previously unused material allows Loewen to take a responsive approach.
Nick grew up in Goshen, and now lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He received his BA from Goshen College in 2006, and MFA from the University of California, Santa Barbar in 2012. His work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, and Joshua Tree, California.
The Hershberger Art Gallery is located inside Goshen College's Music Center, with parking conveniently located close to the building. The gallery is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The gallery will be closed during academic holidays.
