On Screen: Fernanda D’Agostino: Single Channel Videos 2007 - 2013 is a video installation that consists of five projected works that explore ideas of ritual and cyclical transitions, architecture, interactions between art and science and civic propaganda.  In sequential order of display Motion Studies, Living Calligraphy, Wheel, This Video has been Sanitized and Lamentations are a series of stand alone works that traverse a five year span of D’Agostino’s exploration within the digital medium.  These works are experimental videos that at times have coupled with mixed media installations.  D’Agostino utilizes footage she has captured through travel, life experiences and mass media samplings in combination with various digital manipulation techniques to create works that explore new ways of perceiving imagery and content.  

        Fernanda D’Agostino was born in Trenton New Jersey.  She received her MFA from The University of Montana where she studied Ceramic Sculpture and Performance Art.  She came to live in Portland, Oregon in 1985 when she began a year long residency at the School of Arts and Crafts.  Her professional career has been acknowledged nationally and internationally through interest and exhibition of her experimental work, documentary and public art making.  She has achieved 15 solo exhibitions and completed twenty- five public commissions.  D’Agostino’s work has been recognized with numerous awards including the Bonnie Bronson Fellowship, Flintridge Foundation Fellowship and Grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andy Warhol Foundation.

        On Screen: Fernanda D’Agostino: Single Channel Videos 2007 - 2013 is a satellite exhibition that is a kin to “The Method of Loci,” a retrospective of her work on display at the Art Gym at Marylhurst University and “A Moving Conversation,” a conversation which begins at Marylhurst University and ends at Lewis and Clark College.
“The Method of Loci” is on display October 7th through December 8, 2013 and “A Moving Conversation,” begins at Marylhurst Sunday, October 20, 2013 at.

Homespun is a collection of works influenced by country life, domesticity and craft. The works utilize a variety of materials including fiber, metals, wood and ceramics to explore characteristics of each material. Representations of individuals and animals serve as vehicles for these material explorations. The construction of each of these works is often an unsophisticated approach to manipulating the material at hand. This approach often leads to finalized pieces that feel raw and loose. The overall main characteristics of each work largely depend on the type of manipulation that was utilized to construct its form. Many of the works are results of small increments of time that have been compiled and assembled. This body of work spans a five year period in which its bits and pieces were constructed from spare moments. Processes such as sewing, felting and baking are common household tasks that often can be brought out and put away with ease. Often, the time utilized to undergo these processes is informed by the finalization of laundry, dishes, house cleaning, satisfying children and working.
