'Steam Corpse' project connects drawing, sculpture

Western Today staff

Work from two studio art classes is on display now in the B Gallery on the Western Washington University campus.

The student work is from "Art 305: Experimental Drawing," taught by Professor Cara Jaye, and "Art 332: Metal Sculpture," taught by Sebastian Mendes. The work explores variations on the "exquisite corpse" idea in drawing and sculptural imagery, with each person's work connecting to the work situated next to them.

For the students in the experimental drawing course, this group project began in Western's Steam Plant and ends in the B Gallery, with a circuitous, never-ending drawing that encircles the space.

The sculpture students used metal scraps to make puzzle-like sculptures that, when connected to each other, create a web-like maze of metal. This work can be dismantled and re-configured in a variety of ways.

A potluck reception will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, in the B Gallery.
