First Thursday Reception:
May 4, 6 - 8 pm

Amanda Wojick is an artist based in Eugene, Oregon who creates inventive, brightly colored artworks that accentuate the handmade process. Cutouts and Collage features new sculptures and paintings that highlight Wojick’s idiosyncratic artmaking practice and dynamic visual vocabulary.
 
Wojick’s work merges highly personal and symbolic traces from the cultural space of the home, with imperfect geometry and wobbly patterns. Her latest creations are inspired by small freehand paper cutouts and other everyday materials found within the space that she lives. Using layers of unexpected texture, vibrant colors, and surprising arrangements, she creates unique hybrids that intermingle elements of painting, sculpture, and collage.
 
The exhibition features multicolored standing sculptures, stacked wooden wall pieces, and intimately-sized paintings flecked with gold, gingham fabric or painted polka dots. Every one of Wojick’s imaginative new artworks are enlivened by her inventive use of surface, scale and materiality.

Amanda Wojick received a MFA from Bard College and from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and a BA from Colgate University. She has had recent exhibitions at Stene Projects (Stockholm, Sweden), Ucross Art Gallery (Sheridan, WY), Disjecta, (Portland, OR), and the The Art Gym, (Marylhurst, OR). Past exhibitions include Gridspace, (Brooklyn, NY), Buffalo Arts Studio (Buffalo, NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA), Susan Hobbs Gallery, (Toronto, Canada), Whatcom Museum (Bellingham, WA), Jordan Schnitzer Museum at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR), and Sun Valley Center for the Arts (Ketchum, ID) among others. Her work is included in the permanent collection of Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum and many private collections.
