First Thursday Reception:
May 4, 6 - 8 pm

Amanda Wojick is a sculptor based in Eugene, Oregon who creates quirky, inventive 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 uses everyday materials to add layers of unexpected texture and bright pops of color to her artworks. These unique hybrids intermingle elements of painting, sculpture, and collage. Paper and scissors are integral materials to her studio practice and freehand cutouts are the genesis of Wojick’s latest creations.

The exhibition features multicolored standing sculptures, stacked wooden wall pieces, and intimately-sized paintings flecked with gold leafing, gingham fabric or painted polka dots. Every one of Wojick’s imaginative new artworks are enlivened by her clever 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 Buffalo Arts Studio (Buffalo, NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA), Whatcom Museum (Bellingham, WA), Jordan Schnitzer Museum at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR), 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.
