The artists in this exhibition new work in response to their thoughts about aspects of what 2016 means to them. Representing a wide range of experience, and techniques, these artists operate outside of the perceived traditional artist track. This exhibition celebrates the diversity of their approaches towards creating art as well as their varied attitudes toward the world –as long as they could confine these to a 30×22 sheet of paper.
Participating artists: Jason Barr, Janet Davidson Hues, Patrick Giroux , Lora Jost, Leslie Kuluva, Judith G. Levy, Adam Lott , Tom Moore , Jeremy Rockwell, Tonja Torgerson, Dave Van Hee, Beatrice Von Holten

I have recreated “The Fall” for an exhibition at the University of Kansas. The artists in this exhibition work directly or indirectly with the transient & fleeting. They explore this idea through material, process, or content. A moment, a body, a conversation, a landscape, a culture, a life … these things change, evolve, vanish, grow, get lost, or transform into something new.
Artists: Andrew Cho, Ann Dean, Neil Goss, Tressa Jones, Alicia Kelly, Amanda Maciuba, Cate Richards, Carly Slade, Kyla Strid, and Tonja Torgerson.

The Women & Money Project
By investigating the relationship between women and money through a contemporary lens, Women and Money posits questions and initiates visual and verbal dialogue regarding economics, of which money is a by-product, a construct, and a human creation. Money has evolved from an “exchange of value” to a purpose of its own that has, in some instances, created its own scarcity. Women have experienced this scarcity and the exhibition provides an opportunity to bring artistic voices to the discussion. Women and Money expands beyond the limits of the gallery space into the community by connecting artists, community organizations, private entities, and audiences in exploring a local and global problem. The exhibition promotes the use of art for social change, examines women’s place in the precarious state of the world’s economic and financial situation, and scrutinizes, investigates and discusses infrastructures that perpetuate gender and economic inequality.
Artists: Hend Al Mansour, Lynnette Black, Carolina Borja, Rachel Breen, Barbara Bridges, Angela Davis, Liz Dodson, Kate Durbin, Lucy Rose Fischer, Camille Gage, Beth Grossman, Andrea Jenkins, Diane Katsiaficas, Tiffany Keri, Virginia Maksymowicz , Mz Direct (Jeanne Phillip/Judith Huacuja/Susan Byrnes/Tess Cortes), Laurel O’Gorman, Priscilla Otani, Shira Richter, Ellen Schillace, Karen Searle, Marcia Soderman, Meng Tang, Tonja Torgerson, Suzanne Vigil, Krista Kelley Walsh, Jill Waterhouse, Jennifer Weigel, and Karen Wilcox

Free Radicals: Remixing History Through the Power of Print
February 23 – March 26, 2016
Program: Thursday, February 25, 2016 7:00 pm with Jenny Schmid & Tonja Torgerson
Reception: Thursday, February 25, 2016 8:00 – 10:00pm
Curated by Jenny Schmid, Professor of Art, and Howard Oransky, Director of the Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Free Radicals: Remixing History Through the Power of Print, considers the power of associative thinking and historical mash-ups in the print medium. Graphic media inherently offers artists the potential to remix or reference history. The artists in this exhibition discuss revolution and employ metaphor in sampling and in the free combination of history and politics that might be more limiting in other disciplines. The pursuit of free association may not appear to be directly activist, but the use of artistic license to draw on the subconscious may be a tool for the deconstruction of assumed paradigms.
Artists in the exhibition include Sandow Birk, Randy Bolton, Julie Buffalohead, Enrique Chagoya, Sue Coe, Wille Cole, Jim Denomie, Fred Hagstrom, John Hitchcock and Emily Arthur, Barbara Kruger, Michael Krueger, Glenn Ligon, Hung Liu, Emmy Lingscheit, Martin Mazorra, Kristin Powers Nowlin, Andrew Raftery, Robert Rauschenberg, John Risseeuw, Roger Shimomura, Lorna Simpson, Piotr Szyhalski, Tonja Torgerson, Ericka Walker, and Valerie Wallace.
