Gallery Talk: Jack Ryan

Artist Jack Ryan will give a talk in the gallery.

The Art Gym at Marylhurst University will present The Lost Chord, a solo exhibition by Jack Ryan. Ryan is an interdisciplinary artist living in the Pacific Northwest. His practice uses sculpture and sound as a conduit to explore culture. He is co-director of Ditch Projects in Springfield, Ore., director of Pacific Sky Exhibitions in Eugene, Ore., and he is a member of Fugitive Projects based out of Nashville, Tenn.

Exhibition runs through May 20, 2017.

He twice attended the Banff Centre as a fellow and last summer attended a residency at Djerassi funded by The Ford Family Foundation. This past year, he has presented projects at the University of California as well as venues in Nashville, Indianapolis, Connecticut, New Jersey and Chicago. In 2015, Ryan was awarded The Hallie Ford Fellowship and jointly received the Precipice Fund administered by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Calligram Foundation/Allie Furlotti, as part of the Regional Regranting Program of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
