Interactions, Artist to Artist' Exhibit to Appear at Owens' Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery in February and March

Interactive artwork telling stories of unknown places and cultures will be the focal point of a new exhibit opening at Owens Community College's Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery. The exhibition is titled "Interactions, Artist to Artist" and will feature paintings and sculptural artifacts by two nationally renowned artists, February 28 - March 25.

"'Interactions' is an exhibit that community members of all ages will truly enjoy," said Wynn Perry, Owens Adjunct Faculty member who curates the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery. "The art is breathtaking, while at the same time whimsical and elegant."

The two-featured artists within the exhibit are David Cayton and Dorothy Linden.

Cayton currently serves as a Professor Emeritus at Bowling Green State University. He began his educational career at Bowling Green in 1964 and has served in various administrative capacities, including Head of Printmaking, Coordinator of the Art Foundation Program, and 2-D Area Head and Acting Director for the School of Art. While his teaching concentrated primarily on printmaking, Cayton also has taught courses in drawing, oil and watercolor painting, sculpture, and ceramics at Bowling Green and Ball State University. Additionally, he is the co-author of an art text titled "Art Foundations, Theory and Practice."

Highlighting Cayton's works are his impressive signature black sculptures, which strive to create the spirit of an unknown culture without written language. The acclaimed artist's work has been seen in competitive exhibitions at the New Art Center in Osaka, Japan, the Contemporary Arts Forum in Santa Barbara, California, and the American Crafts Council in New York City.

Linden, a renowned painter and papermaker, is a longtime advocate for contemporary papermaking, teaching numerous workshops and seminars at the Toledo Museum of Art, Syracuse University, the University of Notre Dame, Miami University and in Florence, Italy. She also has taught academic courses at the Maumee Valley Country Day School, Ohio Northern University, Bluffton University and Bowling Green State University.

Influenced by fantasy and the whimsical, and a reverence for the natural world, Linden's unique works of handmade paper and paintings are marveled nationwide. Her work can be seen in galleries throughout the country, including Chautauqua, New York, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, as well as locally in Bowling Green and Toledo.

Admission to the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery is free and open to the public, Monday- Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. For additional information about this exhibit or the College's 2004-05 Art Exhibition Season, contact the Center for Fine and Performing Arts at (567) 661-2721 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 2721.
