Heavy Has Debt

For Phoebe Washburn's Faulconer Gallery installation in the summer of 2003, she recycled pieces used from a previous installation. Washburn created a 14-foot tall and 95-foot long curved wall using only small cardboard pieces, drywall screws, and the help of volunteers. To Washburn, her art breaks down the elements of construction to the most basic form. In her words, the process and completed object is so dumb - yet hopefully something amazing emerges from it. 2003.


Keith Achepohl: Gardens of Earth and Water

Combining traditional printmaking techniques with unique paper shapes, stamping and collage, Achepohl creates layered images that have an even more powerful effect in their unique installation. Achepohl, professor of printmaking at the University of Iowa, sees himself not only as a printmaker, but also a gardener and beachcomber. As a result of these roles and interests, Achepohl's work conveys a mood of reflection and contemplation. Images in the catalog include installation views in the Faulconer Gallery. Essays by Lesley Wright and Antonio Damasio.
