Staying Home: Interior Views from the Collection of the Jundt Art Museum

Arcade Gallery, August 28 to December 31, 2021

“Once you start looking… images of the house appear everywhere, bearing upon contemporary life in a great variety of ways.”

Artists have long been exploring their own homes and studios in their work, capturing personal spaces and inviting the viewer inside. Notable examples of these intimate interior views include Vincent van Gogh’s The Bedroom and Wassily Kandinsky’s My Dining Room, but many artists, both new and established, have welcomed viewers into their rooms. Staying Home: Interior Views from the Collection of the Jundt Art Museum showcases over twenty prints, photographs, and paintings from the Jundt Art Museum’s permanent collection that focus on domestic space as artistic subject.

2nd Triennial Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition

Date TBD

SUBMISSION: Details are forthcoming

Coming soon, the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University will present the 2nd Triennial Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition, organized by the staff of the museum.

This juried display, now occurring at Gonzaga University every third summer, seeks to present the diversity and dynamism of contemporary artistic activity in the Inland Northwest while celebrating the relationship between art and the local landscape.

Selection of works and award winners for the 2nd Triennial Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition will again be made by the staff of the Jundt Art Museum. Works will be chosen for the show based upon the museum staff’s understanding of artistic quality and merit, the work’s adherence to the landscape theme and issues, the educational and professional achievements of the artist, and the observance of the rules and guidelines of the application process.

People admire paintings hanging on walls.

The first Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition was held at the Jundt Art Museum from May 26 to August 11, 2018, and attracted almost 4,000 visitors to campus during the summer months. The award winners for the 2018 show included 1st place winner Amalia Fisch (Spokane, Washington) for her oil on canvas painting Kettle River Patchwork, and 2nd place winner Scott Bailey (East Wenatchee, Washington) for his painting 46˚ 51’ 06” N 121˚ 45’ 28” W (Delaunay Triangulation).
