Spring 2023

Ditch Projects, a collective based in Eugene-Springfield 
January 13 - February 9, 2023
Ditch Projects is a nonprofit artist-founded, artist-run studio, exhibition, and performance space providing critical contemporary art experiences in Springfield, Oregon. The artists and professionals behind Ditch Projects are committed to exhibiting experimental works produced by a diversity of practitioners and providing opportunities for cultural exchange between artists and community members, acting as an integral voice within contemporary art discourse in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. For their exhibition at BC Gallery, Ditch Projects will be sharing new works by members of the collective.

Kendra Larson
February 13 - March 10, 2023
Kendra Larson explores historical ideas of the landscape and subtly supports ideas around environmentalism, as well as shifting contemporary relationships to the natural world. Her work touches on themes of Astronomy, Magical Realism, Feminism, and a universal child-like wonderment. Kendra depicts landscapes rich with a history of folklore with a focus on making visible the fleeting qualities (including smoke, fire, clouds, snow, movement, sound, and fireworks) that add to our understanding of Place.

John Chwekun
March 13 - April 14, 2023
John Chwekun is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist working out his ideas through drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and clay, and often befuddles the mental and physical space where these varied mediums mingle and coexist.
