Terhune Art Gallery
ScupltureX 2018: Igniting Change
August 27 – October 27
Kate Levy and Shanna Merola have been working on a collaborative photo book together that skirts the line between conceptual photo and traditional journalism. They have backing through Kickstarter Arts to fund raise but before the campaign launch they are having this inaugural exhibition of the work at Owens!
The exhibition titled Oil + Water, uses their combined photographs from the past five years to make connections between the oil and gas industry, privatization of water, and increased militarization of local police and military. They have documented the water struggle in Detroit and Flint, Standing Rock, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, New Orleans post Katrina and the Bakken Shale fracking boom in North Dakota.
Kate's video work has been featured on Al Jazeera and Democracy Now. Shanna has been featured in Interview Magazine, and many others. Together and separately they've also made videos on the water crisis and environmental justice. As photographers, videographers and investigative journalists they are interested in adding multimedia dimensions to the show.

About the Walter E. Terhune Gallery
The 1,300-square foot Gallery is part of the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. It is committed to exhibiting diverse, vibrant visual arts created by faculty, students and community members, and to embedding arts programming within the curriculum. Exhibits at the Gallery -- both in the main exhibit space and along the outside wall -- have spanned a wide range of media and styles, from traditional art to interactive, multi-media installations.
The Gallery is named on behalf of the Walter E. Terhune, following a donation in 2003 to the Owens Community College Foundation from KeyBank's Terhune Memorial Fund. Established in 1926, the Walter E. Terhune Memorial Fund was created by Mr. Terhune's daughter, Alice Crosby Terhune, to honor her father who was a longtime Toledo businessman and philanthropist. Mr. Terhune was an owner and officer of Clark and Terhune Lumber Merchants, a successful lumber company in the 1800s.
