In Dialogue with Ansel Adams
March 2 - April 10, 2009
"In Dialogue with Ansel Adams" features eleven original masterworks by famed American photographer Ansel Adams, generously loaned to us by his granddaughter, Ms. Alison Jaques. Ten contemporary photographers with national and international reputations show alongside the master. Nan Brown, Jack Davis, Jane Delaney, Ursula Esser, Susan Hartzell, Terry Nathan, Chris Schiller, John Smith, and the team of Byron Wolfe and Mark Klett have all been inspired by Adams, the American landscape, and the tradition of landscape photography. Some of the work is a direct homage to Adams. Other artists capture and celebrate America's natural beauty, particularly the beauty of the San Joaquin Valley. Still others examine relationships between humankind and nature, and between landscape art and kitsch. The show offers a celebration of the American landscape, but also an examination of the ways it has been compromised.

New Work, New Faculty: Jill Vasileff and Stephen Eakin
November 13 - December 14, 2007
In this two-person show, installation artist, Pacific alum, and adjunct professor Stephen Eakin and painter and adjunct professor Jill Vasileff revealed their latest work.
In works such as "Residue" (2007), Eakin explores the connections between art, archiving, and death. The lightboxes in this installation contain slides of everything the artist owns. Gallery visitors are invited to select a slide, which Eakin then bequeaths to them in his will. WWW.STEPHENEAKIN.COM
Vasileff is interested in "synthetic" (i.e. manufactured, not found in nature) color that is magnetically beautiful, but also potentially irritating. She works toward manipulating color so that it straddles the lines between beauty and tension and simplicity and chaos. She often uses repetitive visual elements such as the grid and stripe.
