Spotlight Event

Yasuaki Onishi: Reverse of Volume

When: February 8 - April 6
Location: Kimball Visual Arts Center, Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery
Cost: Free and open to the public

In his installation, Reverse of Volume, Yasuaki Onishi uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float in space. The process he calls "casting the invisible" is Onishi’s meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind. Visitors will be able to walk among the contemplative space, and observe how the simplest qualities of light, shape and line change from different perspectives.

Mountain Film Screening

With an introductory keynote address by Steve Hawk, former executive editor of Sierra Magazine, and founding director of the Tony Hawk Foundation

When: Wednesday, March 20th at 6:30 p.m.*
Location: Peery's Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd, Ogden

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy.  Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? Through astonishing images and beautiful cinematography, Mountain explores the evolving relationship we have with peaks around the world. 

The Shaw Gallery is pleased to co-sponsor this screening as the kickoff for the WSU Outdoor Weber entrepreneurial event.
