University's Lindgren and Minthorne galleries will feature exhibits of varied pieces

A blend of colorful paintings and creations by faculty artists now grace the walls and hallways of George Fox University's two galleries.SUBMITTED PHOTO - 'Cherry Dahlia,' a piece by painter Milla Olviera, is among the works on display in the Lindgren Gallery at George Fox University.

A collection of paintings by Brazilian native Milla Oliveira, now based in Eugene, are on display at the university's Lindgren Gallery, located within the Ross Center and adjacent to Bauman Auditorium. The exhibit, titled "Outside It Was Tuesday," will continue from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 11. The university will hold a closing reception for the show at 7 p.m. Oct. 7.

"Working with color is working with essence and conflict," Oliveira said in a press release from GFU. "In spite of our attempts to name it, catalog or control it, color is more ambiguous than it is definable."

As an artist, Oliveira has sometimes struggled to grasp the medium in which he chooses to create.

"The influence of color cannot be full comprehended; the closest I get to fully understanding color is to feel it," he said. "At some point in the past color has been defined as a visual experience exclusively. It is much more, a cluster of senses that includes sound, touch, emotion, memory and taste. Color has entered my dream state and emerges as tangible emotional structure."

Across campus and inside the Hoover Building, Minthorne Gallery is adorned with a collection of art pieces by GFU faculty. On display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the exhibit was only up for a short time and will conclude Thursday.
