Upcoming Exhibitions

PLACES: Ben Joyce

Jundt Galleries, September 7, 2024 to January 4, 2025

Spokane-based Gonzaga University alumnus Ben Joyce creates art that he names “abstract topophilia”—love of place. Rooted in travel, and in on-site interviews with people who live and work in the respective cities, The PLACE Collection presents recent, large objects fashioned to represent certain locales that played major roles in Joyce’s development throughout his life.  Terming the involvement of creating these works as “an incredible journey of self-growth,” he hopes that the experience of the art for viewers permits them to study and to reflect on their own connections to the places they love.t us again soon for information on upcoming exhibitions.

 

Arcade Gallery, September 7, 2024 to January 4, 2025

In connection with PLACES: Ben Joyce, the Jundt Art Museum presents objects culled from its own permanent collection centered on four of the cities featured in Joyce’s display.  This small, temporary exhibition includes work by John Taylor Arms, John Marin, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Emilio Sanchez, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Paul Strand, Garry Winogrand, and Giuseppe Zocchi, among others.
