Monday, August 19 - Friday, August 30

Location: Cadman Art Gallery, Main Space

Anh Nguyen’s statement about the exhibit, “This exhibit consists of photographs taken at the Floating market in Song Trang Vietnam. This particular market is a famous attraction in Vietnam and draws in thousands of tourist yearly. There have been countless photographs taken here, with the purpose of promoting tourism or cultural bragging. However, this exhibit focuses on the real people making a living at the market, in the time of the year where there isn't a single tourist in sight.  This exhibit aims to unromanticize the idea of the "exotic" destination, by putting the spotlight on those who struggle to stay afloat.”

Giao Tang’s exhibit is filled with colorful oil paintings that make up Euphoria. In the artists words, “Through colors and different canvases, the goal is to explore how different variables in life can affect our so-called "happiness". This show is meant to challenge the context and meaning of what we would describe happy as: a color, an object, even a person in our lives. As its being challenged, works showcased are also meant to encourage the pursuit of happiness.”

Stop & See the ColorsImage by Alan Nguyen

Wednesday, October 14 - Friday, October 25

Location: Cadman Art Gallery, Main Space

Alan Nguyen uses a painting watercolor technique with alcohol and ink to assemble his colorful collection, Stop & See the Colors” Alan states “Some things can't be appreciated fully unless you slow down to experience it, like looking at stars, looking at nature, and looking at art. In a part in Fahrenheit 451, a main character talks about how people don't even know what grass looks like. They just see a green blur and say "That's grass." But to truly appreciate that or nature or art, you have to slow down.”

Cirque du SoLaceyImage by Lacey Bailey

Lacey Bailey

Monday, October 28 - Friday, November 8

Location: Cadman Art Gallery

Lacey Bailey’s artwork takes a colorfully twisted view of social, political, and cultural issues. Her work explores the varying relationships between popular culture and fine art, engaging in subjects as diverse as biomedical research, mental health, anime, and cryptozoology. “My work reproduces familiar visual signs and textures, arranging them into new layered concepts. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project, my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects, they are linked by recurring formal concerns and motif. Each project often consists of multiple phases, sometimes across a range of different media. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.”

IntegrationImage by Shwu Hwa Yang

Monday, November 25 - Friday, December 13

Location: Cadman Art Gallery, Main Space

To integrate traditional and modern cultures is when one group assumes the practices and rituals of another without sacrificing their own identity. I am not attempting transformation but integration conceptually. As an Asian international student, I possess a deep connection to my culture and embrace western art. These are the vantage points that influence my work and serve as an inspiration to me.
