In May of this year I will graduate from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with my Masters in Fine Art degree.
To mark this occasion, please join me for a thesis exhibition showcasing the past 18 months of research, experimentation and art-making.
The exhibition entitled 'Versions / I Like Like' will be on view from Wednesday, February 27 to Saturday, March 2 at the Galleries at Tyler School of Art, 2001 N 13th St. Philadelphia, PA 19122.
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 6-8PM
A Thesis Peer Review will take place on Thursday, February 28 at 6:15pm, and is open to the public. See it as an opportunity to view and ask questions about the artwork in a group environment that is more relaxed than the reception.

"My artistic practice begins with the premise that the space an object or person operates within has a significant influence on their identity. By walking, drawing, painting, and collecting objects in the vicinity of my body I am investigating the systems that determine the characteristics of these constructed spaces. Each work is a physical, a visual or a lexical conclusion to reveal the unacknowledged standards, attitudes, and processes that determine how the spaces that contextualize our bodies are built."
In May of this year I will graduate from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with my Masters in Fine Art degree.
I am excited to announce that this fall I will be pursuing my Masters in Fine Art at Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I have been awarded the The Future Faculty Fellowship, which will provided significant financial support during my time at Tyler.
I want to express my gratitude to my friends, family and mentors who supported me greatly throughout the application process. I am very excited for the opportunities and challenges I will encounter in Philadelphia, and am looking forward to this next steps in my art career.
If you are interested in following my endeavors in Philadelphia I would encourage you to check my blog regularly, as I plan to share some of my experiences, ideas, and images over the two years of my degree and afterward. I also plan to compile and post some of the many, many pages I wrote as I researched, prepared for, and applied to grad school programs. I have some new and interesting ideas that I am excited to begin sharing.

About the artist and exhibition:
Maps have many purposes; providing guidance in our travels, visualizing complicated demographics, or recording important patterns and political transitions. In his new exhibition, Cameron Jarvis focuses on the site specificity of aerial views, Google maps, and other sources to present, share and investigate autobiographic relationships based on important personal places. A first generation American, Jarvis uses maps as a source of inspiration to connect his current home in Cottage Grove, MN, with his Grandmother’s in Antiqua. Through the print making process, Jarvis presents the audience with an intimacy of the local that is both personal as well as universal
In August, Dana Sikkila and her friends at New Facade Pictures paid me a visit in Red Wing as part of 410's Project Bike, a 500 mille trip through southern Minnesota to interview working artists and collect pieces for an exhibition. That exhibition is opening on Saturday, October 8 at 410 Project in Mankato. The exhibition is open October 8 - 23 and features artwork from the 11 artists Dana visited on her trip. The whole trip was documented by independent film and production company True Facade Pictures, and the film they created will be screened at the reception.

Solo Exhibition at Schaefer Gallery, Gustavus Adolphus College
I am happy to announce the opening of my solo exhibition at the Schaefer Gallery at Gustavus Adolphus College. The exhibition is open May 5 - 30. There will be an opening reception on Friday, May 6, 5:30-7pm. Please join me for an artist lecture on Thursday, May 5 at 4:30pm in the FAA Lecture Theater. The Schaefer Gallery is open daily 9am - 5pm.
These pieces are a continuation of the ideas from my two recent shows at Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral and Hillstrom Museum of Art, but with a more specific theme. These paintings and prints use imagery from Saint Peter and the Twin Cities to examine the concept of destination, and how Saint Peter functions as a destination along highway 169.
This exhibition is the culmination of a year-long internship in the Gustavus Department of Art and Art History. I've spent the last eight months working as the Studio Lab Tech, assisting professors in running the department, and working on a portfolio of new work. The environment has been very conducive to making art, and I have enjoyed the mentorship and critique of many of the artists in the department.

I will be participating in a performance at Metropolitan State University to celebrate the grand opening of their new student center. This 30 minute performance (5:30 - 6:00) uses comedy, film, and music to portray scenarios that capture the myriad of emotions we feel when we encounter periods in our lives where we feel lost about the various paths of life in which we find ourselves.
This January I will be displaying work at the Inver Hills Art Gallery, located on the north end of the Inver hIlls Community College Campus.
The exhibition is on view Monday, January 11, to Friday, January 29, and will feature new paintings and collage pieces along with some older work.

My piece Flesh Tone will be on display as part of "I Can't Breathe", an exhibition presented by ARC Gallery in Chicago, and juried by Mary Patten and Romi Crawford, PhD. The show is open November 25th - December 19th, and will include a reception on Friday, December 4th, 6:00 - 9:00pm.
Having endured a year in which video after video has appeared, showing shocking violence by police against unarmed citizens, ARC wants to begin a conversation about these events. The videos have forced all of us to address our ignorance and denial, as well as to ask even bigger questions about the nature of institutionalized racism.
Two of my pieces have been accepted to the 23nd Annual Prairie Lakes Regional Juried Art Exhibition which runs from September 22 to October 18 at the Arts Center of Saint Peter. I hope to see you at the Opening Reception on September 25, 7-9 p.m.
The show will feature 93 pieces of artwork from emerging and established artists in the nine county area.
Solo Exhibition at Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral
I am happy to announce the opening of my first exhibition since graduating from college.
I plan to show new paintings and prints along with some older artwork, all based on the theme of cityscapes. I am interested in the worlds we create for ourselves in the form of buildings and cities, and the ways in which we interact with these artificial oases. The subject matter comes from the various locations in which I have spent my time over the past few years, from Cottage Grove and Saint Peter Minnesota, to London and Berlin.
Mark your calendars for the opening reception on Sunday, August 9th, 1:00 - 3:00pm. I'll be giving a short talk about the artwork at 1:30pm.
Gallery hours: Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Saturday 8:00 a.m. – noon and Sunday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The gallery is located on the second floor, outside the worship space.
