Juried Exhibitions

Student Juried Exhibition-UnityFALL 2015
- a juried student art exhibition.
The title and focus on this student exhibition was unity. Unity is the state of being united into one. Consider: What does unity mean to you? What unites us as humans--what is universal? How can we achieve unity? What is the relationship between unity and diversity? The subject of your piece must include a figure in some way, as we look into this idea of our unity as human beings.
All students currently enrolled at University of the Pacific were invited to participate, with upper-level Life Drawing students jurying the exhibit. The work was on view in the Reynolds Gallery, December 3 - 11, 2015.
Awards for Unity: A Student Juried Exhibition, were announced during the December 3rd reception. Student Jurors Marissa Lewis and Anneka Weinert chose the following student artwork for recognition:
1st place: Tie between Joe Soto's, 55 Alive Video and Eighmee Ferrill's, The Darkness Within
2nd place: Jonair Ornelas, The Spiritual Connection
3rd place: Odalis Lopez, Adios and Honorable Mention: Kaila Munson, Woman in Water

FALL 2013

Revolution: A Student Juried Exhibition
The Fall 2013 gallery schedule concluded with Revolution, a student juried exhibition presented by Senior Studio Art class. The exhibition of student works were on display in the Reynolds Gallery, November 11 - December 4, 2013. As in previous years, all students enrolled at Pacific were eligible to submit work for this juried exhibition. Both art majors and non-art majors were encouraged to visually interpret their personal definition of the theme and participate in this gallery event.
   From the student curators:

“Revolution is a powerful word with many definitions and interpretations and is frequently associated with control, struggle and change. The diverse paintings, drawing, 3-dimensional, digital and video works on display reflect the title of the exhibition through obvious visual representation or through personal reasons known only to the artists. With a large range of work there is a broad sense of the theme rather than one specific classification of revolution. All artwork represents the theme of the show either politically, personally or artistically.”

Based on craftsmanship, completeness, originality and connection to the theme, Jurors Maurelle Bagus, Liliana Nunez, Makana Livermore and Morgan Andre chose the following cash award winners in three categories. The award for 2-Dimensional work, Independence by Evelyn Wong, 3-Dimensional award for World's Colliding, by Alexis Ortega and Lea Imutan and the video award to Sheng Moua for her video, Star.

FALL 2012

Metamorphosis: A Juried Student Art Exhibition 
Pacific seniors from the Studio Art Seminar class, juried and curated an exhibition of student works displayed in the Reynolds Gallery, November 26 - December 7, 2012. Using the themed title of Metamorphosis, all students enrolled at the University of the Pacific were eligible and encouraged to participate. The exhibition Metamorphosis was divided into three categories with an award given to the art and artist who best represented the theme per category. During the November 30th reception, the winners were announced. The artists won a cash award for their work.

Fall 2012 Metamorphosis-


Berenice Calvario's As One was the winner of the two-dimensional work category. Berenice explains that in her piece:

"The forms are changed physically, and the substance of each figure is different from the other. Each figure is converted from one element of form; earth, water, fire, to another while still holding the theme of formality."

Fall 2012 Metamorphosis-


In the three-dimensional category, Liliana Nunez's Tanked was the best example of original and creative work. Her sculpture is a "complete transformation of a fish bowl," made entirely of recycled computer parts.

Fall 2012 Metamorphosis-

Sheng Moua's video entitled Between Man and Nature, was the winner of the video art category. The one and a half minute stop-motion animation illustrates the story of nature taking over a house in the woods and forcing a man back into his surroundings and to recreate a relationship with the forest around him.

Juror's Statement—

Creativity and craftsmanship were an intricate part of the consideration of each piece of art for acceptance into the Expose exhibition. The collection of artwork not only had to be strong enough to stand alone, but also had to work as a group. The artwork in Expose is a brilliant representation of the many talented students at Pacific.  With each student's distinct style, there is no indication of monotony.
The jurors greatly appreciate the efforts and time of all the artists involved in the Expose Exhibition.

In Dialogue with Ansel Adams

The Reynolds Gallery's juried exhibition, In Dialogue with Ansel Adams, was conceived in conjunction with the world premiere of Ansel Adams: America, a new piece for orchestra by Pacific alumnus Dave Brubeck and his son, Chris Brubeck. Over 40 artists submitted work; ten were chosen for the show. From March 2- April 10, 2009, photography by Nan Brown, Jack Davis, Jane Delaney, Ursula Esser, Susan Hartzell, Terry Nathan, Chris Schiller, John Smith, and the team of Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe hung in the gallery alongside Ansel Adams prints generously loaned to the gallery by Adams's granddaughter, Alison Jaques.
