Past Exhibitions

March 29 – April 19

BIG BOY, a two-person exhibition by Robert Veresan and Justin Miller, exploring midwest visual vernacular, children's cartoons and art history through sculpture and painting.

Finding Out About Feelings
February 8 – March 8, 2019

Finding Out About Feelings was an exhibition that examines the artists' past through re-appropriated readymades. Through self-reflection and sculptural compositions, Allie Runyan, Jacob Wonch, and Anthony Brazeau excavate their personal histories in relation to the everyday object to understand the how the environment they inhabit shapes them into the people they become.

Cash & Carry
November 30 - December 15, 2018

Cash & Carry was a two week art market and exhibition at the U245 Student Gallery, allowing students an opportunity to sell artwork and receive 100% of the sales. 

Lay, Lie
October 5 - November 3, 2018

Lay, Lie challenged the perspective of utilitarian and decorative objects, elevating them to an idea of body. With the blending of object and body, we create an ethos of how we decorate personal spaces. Lay, Lie featured works by CCS Crafts majors working in glass and furniture design.
