Under the Microscope: Using Process to Develop Visual Voice with Artist Debra Edgerton

Saturday, October 16, 2021, 11:00 am – Arizona Time

I’ve always been fascinated by the power of water. From fear to reverence, water contains a multi-layered narrative that connects all organisms to a living planet. Most conversation concerning water center around how human-kind is affected by its contamination or depletion. Water is life-giving and life-sustaining but there is less regard for most life living through it.

I started basic research on freshwater ecosystems in 2019. It culminated in the group exhibition, Parched, about general water issues. However, my vision for dissemination could not be achieved because of the demands for shared space and my own truncated research. Because we live in a time of climate severity, water depletion, and skepticism in science, I am continuing my vision of connecting art and science to give visual voice to an area most of the public will not engage. The art developmental process echoes how I feel about the multi-faceted issues of water. My presentation looks behind the scenes in the crafting of an idea and what it takes to bring it to life.

Debra Edgerton an Assistant Professor at Northern Arizona University. She received her two MFAs in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute and Interdisciplinary Art at Vermont College. Her art practice addresses cultural identity, perception, imprinting of memory, displacement, and water issues. Edgerton’s recent artwork recontextualizes grief and loss for women of color. The spectacle of grief in media overshadows quiet despair, empathy, and humanity. She uses art as a mechanism to explore how we process information and its effect on emotional connections.

Ms. Edgerton currently is extending her research into algae and microorganisms and how the beginning of the fresh water aquatic food web can be studied for environmental and climate issues.

Consumption eARTh: Art in the Anthropocene Age with Artist Neal Galloway

Saturday, July 31, 2021, 11:00 am

Artist Neal Galloway will present on his works and art practice which explore the ways in which Earth’s environment is ultimately shaped by human consumption. Galloway’s conceptual artwork explores our understanding of nature, waste, materiality, and our emotional connections to objects and ecosystems. Society has created complex systems which disconnect people from both the origins of their material belongings and from the utterly staggering volume of waste they produce. His artwork seeks to highlight these connections and explore human relationships to the natural world, social inequality, and consumer practices. These pieces take a variety of forms including sculpture, environmental works, installations, performance, videos, and more—using a wide range of traditional and non-traditional art materials.

Neal Galloway is an artist and educator from Flagstaff, Arizona who serves as a Foundations Lecturer in the School of Art at Northern Arizona University. He holds an MFA in 3D and Extended Media from the University of Arizona and a BA in Art and Music from the University of Tulsa. Galloway has been teaching college-level art courses for more than a decade and has exhibited artwork at a wide range of venues across the United States.

Glory Tacheenie-Campoy was born on the Diné reservation to the maternal clan of Kinyáá á nii (Tall Tower Clan) and paternal clan, Bįįtoodnii (Deer Spring Water Clan).

During her Amerind presentation, Glory will discuss her contributions to the group exhibition, “Parched: The Art of Water in the Southwest,” currently on display at the Amerind Museum.
