People I’ve Been

Syd Rvinsky

Capstone Exhibition  

This collection of work focuses on the many faces I have worn in Ashland and aims to put them to rest. I am ready to start over. I am ready to become someone new. Centering my art around memory, sexual abuse, and personal boundaries has helped me find a new, more honest sense of self. Never forget the people you’ve been and never allow history to repeat itself at your expense.



Thorndike Gallery (Art Building):

The Politics of Dead Rats

Semi-Private Studio Members

Group Exhibition  

A collection of student work from some of the the Semi-Private Studio members. Grown from hours of sleep deprivation and stagnant basement air. Every stroke brings them closer to their next piece, while every piece pushes them further towards growth.



Marion Ady Building (Art Department Chairs, Meyer Memorial, And Boise Cascade Galleries):

Tiny Art Show

SOU Students & Community Members

Taking place for its fifth year now, and celebrating art that is both small and diverse, The Tiny Art Show displays works that are three inches by three inches or smaller, and have been created by SOU students, alumni, and community members.
